Father’s Day!

Not a day passes

Or a memory lapses

Across the sky a floating cloud

Always so proud

Shifting rays of rainbow lights

Dancing in the skies so bright

I hear your voice

Gentle and soft

I see your smile

It has been a while

I feel your presence

Precious times reminiscence

Anytime

Every time

Every day

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

But I Look Forward!

Worries!
Who need them
What a waste of time

Fear!
Fleeing hope
Future on hold

Faith!
Facing life
Fearlessly

Guilt!
Glimpse into nothingness
Glance to emptiness

Looking forward!
Life journey
Longing toward freedom

So there!
I chose nothing but
To Look Forward
