Today!

Ticking seconds

Marching minutes

Hurried hours

Optimistic promises

Passionate and determined

Thriving not surviving

Living in the moment

Seeking happiness and health

The ultimate gifts of contentment

Constant state of motion

Purposely moving forward

Never looking back

today

Lillie!

Nurturing, loving, and kind

She lived in a breathtaking house overlooking the mountains

Adorned like a princess with beautiful handsewn dresses she designed just for me

Mixing giggles and laughter as we baked sablé cookies

Magical tea parties for two

Girls’ time afternoons of pampering

Exquisite manicures and makeup

Summer after summer spent at her home

Treating me like one of her own

Lillie, my beautiful Aunt

I am forever

Dante!

A divine comedy

I might say

Blessed with a heart of gold

A bit forgetful at times

May or may not remember

Mother’s Day this coming Sunday

If and when he does

It will be no later than Monday

Bearing flowers and sweets

He will be there in a heartbeat

But if he needs a subtle reminder

I’ll just call and say

Remember me

My favorite Son

Oops I forgot

I have only one

I Believe In Magic!

Dazzling sunshine

Ethereal clouds

Shimmering mist

Dancing stardust

Enchanted gardens

Whimsical butterflies

Mythical unicorns

Twilight fairies

Glittering diamonds

Starlight night

Wishing upon a star

Believing in fairy tales

Living A Story!

Chapter after chapter

Page after page

Line after line

Word after word

Defeats and triumphs

Endings and beginnings

Tick tock of a clock

Lub dub of a heartbeat

Glory of a sunrise

Gentle whistle of the wind

Hush whisper of a fallen leaf

Sorrowful drip of a rain drop

Ominous boom of the thunder

Magic of a sunset

I am brave enough to weather any storm

For the promise of a rainbow

Gregariously Goofy

Rambunctious Rascals

Amazingly Adorable

Notoriously Nonconforming

Daring Devils

Shockingly Stupendous

Outrageously Outspoken

Nevertheless Nonpareil

Sensationally Spellbinding

Confusion, Chaos, and Chocolate !

New year, I thought

Should be a breeze

Peace of mind

A fresh start

A visit to my favorite doctor

Whom I really really like

Might even  have a crush on him

Or is it a side effect

In a flash, all changed

Started at the front desk

Oh my

New staff

New insurance

No problem

Front desk girl grumbled

I see you are on your husband’s policy

I am not married, I retorted

Who is this husband, I asked

I cannot divulge, the fool responded

I insisted I need to know his name

Sorry, she repeated

HIPAA, HIPPO, HIPPY

Not so sure what I heard

Am I losing my mind

Or is it a side effect

Then whisked away

Routine blood test

Rough looking tech

Poking, probing aggressively

Enough, I said

I earned those chocolate truffles

Right there

Calling my name

In the cozy little break room

Between the lab and

Door to freedom

chaos

If I were to wish…..

To  have a wishbone

Cinderella said it best

” A dream is a wish our heart makes”

To have a backbone

Maya Angelou’s own words

” Poetry puts starch in your backbone so you can stand, so you can compose your life”

I must have a funny bone

 

life alert

 

 

I promise to….

Rise and shine

Never give up

Not give in

Look forward

Take a chance

Express hope

Live with faith

Follow the ray of light

Embrace changes

Build trust

Reflect on life

Face  fear
