I Follow The World News

I pray for a safe world in which we
Can reach many goals for our future.

It takes strong, dedicated, willing,
Remarkable LEADERS and cooperative,
Respectful, and lawful citizens to
Make it happen.

Taking Many Months Off

I presently will be taking many months off
For myself and not taking the time to write.

I need to reflect where I stand, what I need
To do, and what/why I must change differently.

I wish for all my readers; happiness, love,
Peace, good health, prosperity, and inner joy.

I have a curious, stimulating mind that wants
To go somewhere, even I can’t get there yet!

I want you to enjoy reading my first book, it
Was released in 2016; written just for you!

I enjoy being your author/writer and was happy
That you had been a factor of that beginning.

Admiring You

I could see your luscious
Lips hugging the glass
As you sipped the wine
Seductively from the glass…

Whilst you look into the
Eyes of your true love.

Advertisements Can Falsify

This connection and I were talking on so many subjects and this one happened to come in. We were talking about if one would become married again. I found it interesting and so true; we are bombarded by so many advertisements that strongly signifies something and to change our thinking habits.  Only half of them truly do what they are meant to do.  Remember, advertising sells items!

The Interview

“Hey, you know what else happen when you get married?  You got to get a stupid ring.  The Jews have made us believe the diamond was so great.”

I’m not asking for a diamond. I want a black pearl ring with tiny diamonds around it.  Diamonds are not a sign of lasting love.

“They make you believe you got to buy that stuff.”

I know…all advertisements do.


I did happen to receive a round diamond ring with the first engagement and marriage.  And in noticing the marriages of so many other couples today fall apart and divorce; I do not see that the diamond lasts forever. So, actually to me it is no longer symbolic to love and happiness; or to even seal the commitment/covenant when you are saying your marriage vows.

If I am given the opportunity for a 2nd chance of life, for happiness to surround me with love, honor and respect…I don’t intend to have an all diamond ring…I will replace it for another type of gem, the pearl…that sparkles with tiny diamonds.

Memories Of My Daughter

Sentimental items I have kept:

The things you made in school
The plastic ring you once had
The charm bracelet you worn
The gummy bear chain necklace
The hat you wanted to rid of
The Hollister top you left
The senior portraits you had
The pictures taken with me

A mother’s love never ends.

Our life is an ever changing pattern
Of growth during our entire lifetime.

Many adventures, events, and festivities
Fulfill our burning desires within us.

Brightened beginnings to the endings are so
Magically displayed in artistic fashion.

Forever changing the picturesque scene
As we continue to turn our lives around.

You can get stuck in it
You can slip and slide
You can get your shoes filthy
You can track it in a building
You can see water standing
You can see it on a mud guard
You can see it after a rain storm
You can see it carried by the flood
You can witness it in a landslide
You can find it at the riverbank
You can play games or sports in it

It's Spring

Rain; soaking the frozen ground to thaw
Wind; slight breeze in the flowing air
Sunny; sunshine radiates a beam
Blue; skies are bright with clouds
Green; slender grass appearing fast
Warmth; sweet buds showing on the trees
Sounds; singing birds awaken the morning
Blossoms; soft colors brighten the landscape

Spring is around the corner

To Reel Him In

I need to catch a guy
And reel him in-

Like a fish on a hook
That can’t get away.

Keep winding the cord
Till he’s near me-

And to call him mine!
