Christ's Birth

I know what it was like... just
Hearing about the Christ child.

Hearing the Nativity story
Hearing the songs written and sung
Hearing the Scriptures in the Bible
Hearing the people talk about Him

But once He has come to you; you
Will fully understand and have the
Wisdom of His peace and love.

It is eternal and stays with you in
Your heart, mind, soul and strength.

Christ shall reign forevermore. Amen

Who was William?
Was he a prophet?
Or, maybe a King?
A priest instructed
Through vision, or
Inspiration, to lead,
Or redeem, Israel?
Who is the mother?
The father, relatives
Of this Shakespeare,
This man so versed?
Quotes I have heard
From a child till now,
Most of which apply
In life somehow.
In schools there are
Plays depicting his
Works. Not just then,
Or when I was young.
I hear his words when
I least imagine them,
From people I thought
Didn’t know of him.
Who is William, this
Is he the son of Jesse,
The brother of David,
Coming from the line
Of Judah? Another
Psalmist, philosopher,
A man with great
Insights. Or a poet, a
Playwright, with just
A simple message?
Words have a way of
Changing many things
In each one of us live.
Just like a Star, we also
Leave our prints with
Every word we use.
You can call me William
(with a smile).
My parents call me Charles,
With all of their heart.

Remember that you Shine!

Pretty Things

I always had an eye for pretty things
So abundant of comfort and style.

I always had ways to seek pleasure
In the simplest forms all around me.

I always had seen the world in beauty
So abundant of talents and structure.

I always had riches felt in the heart
In the blessings and wisdom given.

I always had love for what matters
So abundant of joy and grace.

Why Honor your Parents/Guardians?

They love you
They know you
They guide you
They shape you
They direct you
They teach you
They inform you
They encourage you
They command you
They socialize you
They improve you
They skill you
They care for you
They standup for you
They sacrificed for you

When you rebel, you don’t learn!

Simply Alone

A beautiful woman
Sat at a table for two.

Dressed very pretty;
No ring on her finger.

What’s a woman like you
Sitting there all alone?

She placed an order for a
Delicious meal and drinks.

Her attire was striking
On her lovely tan body.

Why isn’t a man with her
To give love, honor, and care?

Music was playing and it
Was the most perfect evening.

The atmosphere of ambience
Was simply surrounding her.

I Glow When I Am Happy

Sometimes work gets a little overwhelming.
When personal things get caught in the midst
            Of aligned strings.

Or in the commitment to community links.
When quality family time begins to sink.
When the brain is weary to think,
Of how to keep the body in sync.

In a space where only rest can relieve me
From stress, though I feel I am doing my best,
There is a bigger mess.

Still I keep going, moving on impulse, gasping
            For air.

As my heart beats rapidly I know, I know that
I’m low. Perhaps even lower than it shows, below
The essential blood flow.

Some things I must let go, as sure as the wind
Blows. There I recall how Moses received a vow,
That stands even now.

My burden will never overflow. Give thanks
That is so. Even when I’m weary I know, one kind
Word makes me glow.

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!

Social Networker in quotes      Carol Kappes in unquote         Limit amount of editing.

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!

Weighed Decision

President Donald Trump decisions as the
American president is/can be crucial
In certain times from:


All of these are weighed decisions to keep
United States of America citizens safe, keep
Them in protection, keep them strong, and to
Keep them in courage.

America’s National Anthem, The Star Spangled
Banner is one example, so listen to it carefully.

We are the people of the United States of America.
In God, we trust.

Missionary Work?

I was asked this today by a

Are you a Missionary?

Of it has come from the higher source.

In this wonderful, most beautiful world.

2017; the Seven Looks Like a Ladder

Look into the New Year brightly
Find all that it is worth.

Two thousand and seventeen
It rings with a pleasant bell.

Climb down the number one;
And then you will climb up.

Seeing the number seven near
You will walk it at an incline.

When you get to the bar at the top
Remain there; you reached the goal.
