Indulging my most lucid daydreams

Three hours and two minutes

  I make no new years resolution for vulnerable are we
as time holds all the answers and
 you hold the key.



Three hours and two minutes
and another year is gone and
I'm still dreaming of where I
belong, your arms to hold me
gentle yet tight and a lifetime
 of memories to record day
 and night.


I'm starting the new year,
like I ended the old, imagining
a kiss and your embrace strong.
I spent my day thinking of you
and dancing in the heavens blue.

I sat here waiting, wanting you so,
wishing and wondering which way
to go.. The day is almost over and
all I can say, is I promise my love
for a lifetime times a day.


Three hours and two minutes
and another year is gone and
I'm still dreaming of where I
belong, your arms to hold me
gentle yet tight and a lifetime
of memories to record day
and night.

No Rainbows

I don't see a rainbow,
there is no blue  in sight,
I'm just gazing at the stars
shining bright.

I am wondering what you are
doing and if you're thinking of me,
Staring at the heavens and
trapped in my own daydreams.

I don't see a rainbow,
there is no blue in sight,
I'm just gazing at the stars
shining bright.

My heart is lonely, my soul
feels despair, waiting on a kiss
and not the wind through my
hair.

I don't see a rainbow,
there is no blue in sight,
I'm just gazing at the stars
shining bright.

The day passed so quickly and
the night lingers on as I lay my
head upon the pillow singing
silly love songs.

I don't see a rainbow,
there is no blue in sight,
I'm just gazing at the stars
shining bright.

Love is something that
can't be taken away, for it
was given to me and in my
heart is where it will stay.

I don't see a rainbow,
there is no blue in sight,
I'm just gazing at the stars
shining bright.

The silence now broken,
a warmth we both share,
is from the song of the heart,
that brings you near.

I don't see a rainbow,
there is no blue in sight,
I'm just gazing at the stars
shining bright.

I tried to shout it, I sang
as loud as I could sing,
and suddenly it occurred
that louder is not a need.


I don't see a rainbow,
there is no blue in sight,
I'm just gazing at the stars
shining bright.


 I whispered to the winter birds
 when you begin to take flight,
take my love and make him feel
it both day and night.


~
Here is a path, a journey to take,
hold my hand and a life we'll make.

In the garden, by the valley,
down by the stream, hold my hand
and walk with me.

Here is a path, a journey to take,
hold my hand and a life we'll make.

Dreams that bring you closer to
me, every corner of the earth and
in the clouds where we meet.

Here is a path, a journey to take,\
hold my hand and a life we'll make.

2012

I found a little book that I made in third or fourth grade. It was yellow with age, the outside done up in a array of flowers. Inside the book was notes written by teachers and classmates. Honestly I drew a blank when reading most of the names. How could I have forgotten teachers and other children? My mind was blank as if that moment in time did not exist. The mind is quite clever it erases passages of time that we choose not to deal with. The irony is that I don't really remember the people or the time period or why its completely erased from my mind. When working over the years I have met so many people, some of the faces began to fade like a collage and to this day others stand out like bright beams of light. Sometimes it's an action, a reaction, conversation or a moment in time, but whatever it is, it leaves impact on our being. I had a phone call from a customer, " Do you remember me?" I realized that those who did stand out pulled at  the strings of my heart in one way or another. The year comes with many memories and I find that I have a tendency to hold on to the positive and like a seed in wind blow the negative away.

Embracing the moment,
I thank the Lord above,
for he directed my soul,
to you my special love.

He waited till the moment
when he was sure, that
I would recognize such
love in you whom I adore.

Embracing the moment,
I thank the Lord above,
for he directed my soul,
to you my special love.

Wiped my tears,
renewed my faith,
and gave to me the
memories in which I
wouldn't trade.

Embracing the moment,
I thank the Lord above,
for he directed my soul,
to you my special love.



I am not up for a party,
I am not there to dance,
sitting here daydreaming,
of sunshine and sand.

There is no laughter,
nor stars in the sky,
the world is dark when
you're not here by my side.

I am not up for a party,
I am not there to dance,
sitting here daydreaming
of sunshine and sand.

~
Sing Heart Sing

~
Swimming in a pool of memories,
or it might be more like drowning,
 and over my head in dreams.

Open or closed you are all that I
can see, the joy of my life that
brought true love to me.

Like an unpainted canvas,
my heart awaits your love. 

Silk and Lace

Cleaning out the closet,
my fingers traced a negligee
of silk and lace.Stitched
with a delicate bow to my
cheek the bodice I placed.

I never chose to wear it, I
kept  it for so long and yet it
still looked pristine in a mystical
kind of way, touching on a
dream that never ever fades.

It stroke the mind awakening
memories of old , when youth
was so hopeful and time had
yet to take its tolls. .

I held back the tears of the life
that would never be, for I believe
this script was written by someone
other than me.

I would have paved the path
with sunshine and glee and a
bed full of petals, a love song
a day and a blue sky to chase
away any shade of gray.

I stopped all that I was doing,
as if time really could stand still,
and I listened to my heart and
no words could it speak so
again to my chest I placed my
hand and felt the story through
each and every beat.

Welcome 2012

The new year is quickly approaching and my mind floods with so many thoughts and memories. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow will be nothing like today. I danced on the clouds in the heavens high, smiled and laughed and sometimes I cried. Felt your love fill my heart with joy and the emptiness that the day employed. Raced the moment to hold still time as if you were in my arms and not in my mind. The galaxy inviting, the stars spell out your name and there my soul soars to embrace another day. Dreams are but a gateway to bring you close to me in hope that when I wake up you'll be lying next to me. The road is awfully fuzzy, the mountains do seem high, the rivers are widening but not the memories I keep inside. The winter is upon us, days limited of sun, until I close my eyes and allow my soul to run. Racing the wind to be where you are and feel your arms around me like the heavens embrace the stars. Life is so fickle that we don't know where it will lead, but if I follow my heart, I'll be living the dream.

The song I hear,
the music fills the air,
teasing the mind,
of another time.

The tears that fall,
 remember it all,
the days of laughter,
and dreams of forever
after.

Embracing the Silence

The winter sun is shining,
as bright as it can be,
a reminder of summer,
it touched on memories.

My heart quivered,
my soul stood in denial,
but the truth surfaced
and it's there behind
each and every smile.

The largest brightest star...Merry Christmas!

My hair is pulled up in soft loose curls. I had chosen a v-neck sweater dress in a not so quite turquoise, I think it is a little more green. Diamond earrings, my daughters snowman bracelet and camel color high heel boots. I have been anxious to head out for the evening and I am as ready as I am going to get for Christmas morning. In one breath I am happy to be celebrating the season and yet I find myself wiping tears that seem to fall without an obvious reason. Everyone of us has a time and place and a vulnerability. We wake up to a new day and that in itself is a gift. There are other gifts, as close as the stars and yet distant, one with the world and yet separate, bonding of hearts and yet divided. I find myself wanting to rejoice and at the same time feeling my body quiver and like the snow as it melts from the sun, I feel my heart melt from your love.

I looked to the sky, to the star shining bright and I knew at that moment you were holding me tight. No rivers nor mountains, no miles can divide, the love from your heart which warms deep inside. Half  of me is happy, the other half sad as the tears are a reminder of both my needs and all that I have.. No words from my lips but a whisper the same as I looked to the sky on this early Christmas day. Magical and wonderful if you let it all in , the joy of life when you bond with a friend. I looked to the sky, the star shining bright and I knew at that moment you were holding me tight.  Merry Christmas!

Love

~~~~
As I look back at older pieces....well my grammar is way off. 
More precious than any treasure royalty could hold, more valuable than that of the most highly prized gold . Heavier than a mountain , lighter than the breeze , warmer than the sunshine and more beautiful than any dream. You can float it on the river, and hold it in your heart and when you close your eyes at night you can see it in the dark.
It can comfort a distressed baby , wipe the tears from a broken heart , it can halt raging waters and cause a fire to spark. It can knot a field of flowers and at your feet a bouquet lay and when distressed and overwhelmed allow the child to play.
Love

What Makes The Sky Blue

The image of your smile,
the love that flows from you,
my heart void of emptiness
makes the sky so blue.

The joy we share,
the memories we made,
the dreams of happiness,
brings colors to the day.
~

The treasures of life make
a king and queen of you and I,
for the wealth is from the love
we share under blue skies.

Compassion over flows,
the joy lights the sky and
the bonding of our two
souls burst out from inside.

Treasures we share, like
passion through the air,
magical indeed, conquers
those who disbelieve.

Stars from the heavens,
shines down on you and I,
with a sparkling celebration
of the day our soul combined.

~

Loneliness is when you close your eyes,
and you can't see the love of your life.
As long as you want me in your heart
I'll be for I promise forever a day plus
eternity.

I am there with you, I'm holding your hand,
don't let it go, my heart so demands.
There are rainbows,dreams waiting to come
true in a field of happiness there is only me
and you.

Why so many tears?

I believed that love could conquer all,
I banked on my dreams that I could have it all.
Love in the morning when I open up my eyes
and love through the day with no surprise.

Endless tears of the memories that never fade
and the cold and darkness that rule the day.
Sorrow and heartache and my pillow and I,
catch the tears like the rain  falling from the
sky.

Peace and Contentment

Hum the song of love,
no words do I need,
happiness is central,
when I stop to dream.

The day is just beginning
and like the day before,
I wake up counting my
blessings to you whom
I adore.

~

My heart is filled with love,
my thoughts are of you and
when I slowly close my eyes
I am right there next to you.

My dreams the net to catch me
when I am blue and like your
warm embrace holding tight
all the night through.

The rain is falling, where snowflakes
usually lay, unseasonable the weather
a reminder of gifts sent our way.

Like the memories and laughter,
the joy that love brings and the
faith in tomorrow that around
the corner is spring.

~
I don't want to go on rushing time away,
each moment we are together is like the month of may.


~
Sing a song, sing of love,
the words from heaven, 
fell down from above.

Sing a song, sing of love,
rejoice in our togetherness,
the day we became one.

Sing a song, sing of love,
the words from heaven,
fell down from above.






Peace comes from knowing you are here,
contentment is in the moments we share.
The walk on the earth, the dance in the stars
the warmth of the beating of two hearts.

Happy thoughts and love filled dreams,
magical whims and sweet memories,
conjures up a spell to break the barriers
that distance held and place you here
next to me.

~

I woke this morning and my eyes were still asleep,
I reviewed my dreams just to hold you close to me.
The warmth of your spirit,, the magic of your smile ,
the power of love that extinguishes the  miles.

I danced upon the heavens and there we embraced,
following your footsteps while staring into your face.
Your arms around me , your heart beat next to mine,
as we continued the dance of love upon the clouds.
~
Sings>Pull me ever close,
till our hearts are one.
I'll follow your dance lead
on the clouds above.

My head upon your shoulder,
as you whisper words of love,
and we dance the dance of
lovers, heart and souls as one.

Pull me ever close,
till our hearts are one.
I'll follow your dance lead
on the clouds above.

Not just words but emotion scripted from life.

The  year is coming to an end and as I do each year at this time I look back  over my life. Sometimes I wonder exactly how I got here and then I remember something once said to me long ago” sometimes you find the road and  sometimes the road finds you”  As I packaged  products  for customers today, it occurred to me that I was packaging a little bit of heart and soul.  Each product that I make and sell is a tribute to my life on Earth. Whether it is writing or my skin care it is a journey in motion. I tried to understand each person who had come into my life and why and at first I was confused. We don’t always see the gift until years  later when we draw on the experience for the wisdom which is packed in each one. I looked at everything as  if it had to have a beginning and end. But in retrospect it has all been one , like a set of building blocks creating a new day.  Each block of life is formed for a very specific reason. Sometimes I have felt different and I understand now that difference is part of our individual character.


It is not about an angel singing a song,
nor a set of love birds wings flapping strong.
The magic of life, the mystery of a song, is
the sharing of life, knowing where you belong.


It is not  about a mountain where I call your name,
nor the blue sky where I script it like a flame.
The mystery of words that I write for you  are
left on your heart from the day I met you.

Merry Christmas

My sister called she said" did you hear that they are threatening again to remove the manger in town square." I find it amazing if you listen to the story of baby Jesus that anyone could be threatened by peace and love.  I have read the bible many times and the stories can take on many varied interpretations, but all in all they are lessons that have stood the test of time. I think of Christmas as a time of renewed faith. When you calculate the heaviness that is placed upon us, you find that having a faith can reduce the weight of negativity. Sometimes its about bringing peace and other times acceptance of that with which we have no control over. There are many things in life that might make you want to give up, the tragedies take on many forms. It might be so that the best angels are right here on earth.
Over the years I have lost many dear friends, those important people who helped in the creating of memories. As I have gotten older I find that not many people can fill the shoes of those special people. I was a bit melancholy and really not prepared for company. My son's girlfriend stopped in and asked if I could bring out the paints so she could make decorations for the tree. We cleaned off the table and she sat down with her spirit and smile. Grateful am I for those earthly angels that enter my life.
Life doesn't always follow the plan and as I thought about my disappointments the tears swelled and I could not hold them back. I feel robotic at times moving to the expectations of others. My heart is heavy and I hunger to be held.


Lights on the tree,
christmas bells in the air,
the joy of the season
 is a celebration that nears.

My dreams are all so simple,
and meaningful to me, they
place you in my arms as
we dance to memory.

My eyes are closed and still
I can see through my heart
the love that was always
meant to be.

Lights on the tree,
Christmas bells in the air,
the joy of the season
 is a celebration that nears.

~
On the clouds in the heavens,
this dance for you and I,
take my hand, take my heart
for all of time.


On the clouds in the heavens,
this dance for you and I,
from my heart to yours,
there will be no goodbyes.

On the clouds in the heavens,
this dance for you and I,
take my hand, take my heart
for all of time.




I want to give up in the worst way,
but I don't think it is in my genetic make up.
 ~
Snap, crackle the wood is burning,
the holiday is near. I find myself,
daydreaming  wishing that you 
 were here.

Snap,crackle the wood is burning,
the fireplace is all a glow and the 
season is coming fast as I sit here
all alone.

Snap, crackle the wood is burning,
as I vision you with me. Cliche, 
a bear skin rug and a look at my 
dreams.
~

I look at the stars, they are shinning awfully bright,
knowing they are a glow in your world and min each night.

~
My arms open and my heart waits for you,
my dreams of forever of a love of two.
I sit it wondering the night away, wishing
and wanting you both night and day.

My arms open and my heart waits for you,
my dreams of forever of a love of two.
Sliding on rainbows, jumping the clouds,
a silly dance spinning around..

~
If every dream brought you near, 
enough to feel your love, I'd never 
open up my eyes, in fear you 
disappear from sight.

High on a hill

When I was a young child I had a connection with a building that sat high on the hill. When ever I saw this majestic structure, I knew I was in one way or another close to home. The irony is the castle like building with this unusual globe was close enough that I could see it from my little corner of the world, but far enough away that it was never really within grasp. It had  a fantasy like quality to it and that might have been part of the draw. But really I guess it had to do with the fact that when I felt alone or lost I would turn around and it would be there, high on the hill.  I said to myself " one day I am going to take a drive by it to see it up close", but I do believe the building had been taken down long ago. I guess I have always had a sort of sentimental connection to places and things. As if an object held a memory which brought comfort and a sense of peace.
It was a long day today and I find myself trapped in total exhaustion. So as I sit back and relax my mind drifts to that safe place all those many years ago. Somethings never leave like the uncontrollable emotions that have me running away within my mind.

Runs fast, runs far,
to open heart and
there I find your
open arms.

Runs fast, runs far,
to love so true,
where I share
a kiss with you.

Runs fast, runs far,
beyond mountains high,
where all is seen from
the blue sky.

Runs fast, runs far,
I am safe at last ,
no tears or heartache,
in the dreams I clasp.

Runs fast, runs far,
I am all alone,
running circles,
which way do I go?

Runs fast, runs far,
an image I see,
who stands there
in the darkness,
waiting for me?

~
The darkness drapes the evening,
the stars take to the sky and it's
at this very moment that I quickly
close my eyes.

~
To close my eyes is to fall asleep,
to fall asleep is to live in the dream,
to live in the dream is to feel your arms,
to feel your arms is to know love,
to know love is to embrace peace.

From Earth To The Stars

Tears to laughter,
sadness to a smile,
heartache to a dream
and love all the while.

Stars to the heavens
your love to my heart,
an angel that whispers
the memories from afar.

We are the product of our dreams. 
~
To string the multi colored lights
all throughout the tree,represents
the diversity of every thought and dream.

~

I woke to the darkness and yet the light of your love 
lit the morn as it shines in my heart.  

~
Mankind placed upon a pedestal is the first step of failure,
for we are not superior in thought nor action until
 we are one with the world. 
~

Dreams are the catalyst which
place you in my arms.

In the Midst of a Snow Storm

Lullaby a sweet song, 
I'll sing softly for you, 
a melody of the heart 
of a dream come true. 

Rest my darling with your
head to my breast and
in the arms a comfort 
as we are truly blessed.

Lullaby a sweet song, 
I'll sing softly for you, 
a melody of the heart 
of a dream come true. 



I thought about all of the various holidays and not far behind comes the word expectations. Expectation clearly lines a path that may or may not lead to disappointment. I found myself torn in the belief that everyday is a holiday waiting to be celebrated and another part of me falls into the ummm Rockwell Christmas! With the children not always home for a holiday,there was collage, the military, living in different states and splitting the day with  in laws etc. So when my children were disappointed that they couldn't be home for a holiday, I would say when family is together any day and every day is a holiday.
But most holidays whether they are religious or not center around gratitude. We are grateful for the teachings of kindness that Christmas so celebrates, the opportunity for renewal that the Resurrection teaches and even those that celebrate presidents or labor day and our military. Each holiday has become  a way of bringing families closer together or at least it should be.  But in reality sometimes the joy of the season is over looked by our need to fulfill the dream of a Rockwell painting.
The true meaning of the holidays somehow gets lost in the traditions that we tend to follow. The perfect dinner, the right gift, games, entertainment and a host of the usual expected  such as ten varieties of baking cookie, that are gobbled up in the first fifteen minutes.
I have looked back over the many years, the parties, celebrations, joys and disappointments. I have learned allot and I have healed and grown not only as a woman but as a human being. Each day I wake up I am grateful that my eyes have opened, my health is with me and that I will still chance to take various paths on the journey. I am grateful for whatever came before us that created earth in its perfection. I rejoice in that I love and that I am loved. I celebrate the magic of life which has allowed the collisions of various souls. Bewildered and yet understanding of the trials in which we summarize and script as our eternal legacy. The coming together of spirit to dance freely upon the heavens, to sing from the heart and to make love to the moment.
With love as our guide, allow peace to promote a well being that can be celebrated each day of the year. May we remember that a day on the calender is just a reminder of the actions that we should live through out our life. Balancing our emotions with our actions and allowing the love to flow through is necessary in bedding peace in the heart. .


If I should  give to you a gift,
no gift wrap will I need,
for in your heart I left my
love and the joy of memory.

Our souls in unity,
harmony now resides,
for once peace has entered,
only happiness is what we'll find.









 “For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
... A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance...”
- Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

There is much that can be felt when love
is the source of energy. 
~
To eradicate the world of evil thoughts,
is the first step towards uniting in peace. 
~
All mankind benefits with respect at the helm. 
~
This holiday season is not about what we wrap with our hands,
but what we give with our hearts. 
~
These words are simply my thoughts...
~
The greatest weapon to keep evil from gaining ground is love.
~

Christmas flowers and holiday cards,
the three wise men following a star. 
Celebrations each day of the year,
in honor of the love you and I share. 

Trees decorated with so many lights, 
enough to brighten the  darkest night.
The road to happiness begins here, 
in honor of the love you and I share. 

~

Dancing with the snowflakes,
spinning around and filled with glee,
celebrating love and how much you
mean to me. 


Pulls you close and holds gently
in my heart, where I feel the magic
brought you here from a far. 



Dancing with the snowflakes,
spinning around and filled with glee,
celebrating love and how much you
mean to me. 


I can't hide the smile nor the sparkle 
in my eyes as I dream of you my darling
and the love I hold inside. 



Dancing with the snowflakes,
spinning around and filled with glee,
celebrating love and how much you
mean to me.


~
This poem resurfaced and I was amazed at the year it was written, seems like yesterday.

No Loneliness

Allow no loneliness to reside,
whispers of love to your heart
collide.

Branched upon a tree of high,
waiting the wind to come on by.

Take my breath and feel it near,
the breeze that blows is not to fear.

I have sent in the current above,
all the magic that exist in Love..
an old but goodie...


No Loneliness

Allow no loneliness to reside,
whispers of love to your heart
collide.

Branched upon a tree of high,
waiting the wind to come on by.

Take my breath and feel it near,
the breeze that blows is not to fear.

I have sent in the current above,
all the magic that exist in Love...

Early Christmas Kisses

> mistletoe<
Kiss Now!


Frazzled that everyone wasn't up and moving to get to the farm to get a Christmas tree, check out the holiday vendors and the festivities that were planned for the day.I was discouraged and just a wee bit under the weather and maybe a little temper-mental as I yelled that the day was not going to plan Much later in the day my young adult children went to the farm  without me to pick out  a Christmas tree. I have to admit as they placed it in the tree stand that the Douglas fir looked perfect. In its perfection I saw the pride in which they chose the tree, the joint effort in working together and a joy of the season that flowed through them . As I looked on at the tree  or maybe it was past the tree, I had found myself gazing as if through the eyes of a child. How could it be that the hopes and dreams with which we struggle to understand as a child stays with us to this very day? I believe all of our actions from early on to this very moment are accumulative. Like building blocks furthering the depth of character.
There was something my daughter wrote that stayed with me, she said " I wrote my life in pen, so that when I made a mistake I couldn't erase it." I imagine that is her spin on learning from your mistakes. But I found that we make so many of them because no two are ever the same. It seems that they are not always identifiable because they appear to take on a different feel so that we don't recognize an error until we already have passed through the water filled pothole. As the years press on I feel overwhelmed with  the child like emotions and experiences which meet with a maturity level that time itself brings. It doesn't change the story that has already been written but it does give a different view and a choice at an alternate ending.
Like balancing your investments, you look at what you have and gained and lost by the experiences. In all reality you never really lose anything as everything that happens is realistically a part of the journey. Why does it have to hurt? Looking into the eyes of the many people I meet you get a glimpse of their heaven and hell. I realized that is hell is not death, it is our inability to deal with a segment of the journey. That is what makes each persons experience a hell our lack of coping skills. I thought that maybe those who found acceptance of the negative to easily were just desensitized and therefore overlooked the obvious. But that would only be so if they continued to make the same mistakes. Of course there is a level of ignorance as well as circumstances that need to be addressed.
With my thoughts drifting off in different directions, I hope that with love in my heart I can redirect my thoughts and surround myself with the optimism that the season is capable of bringing. The responsibility lies within our own choices and guides us in a positive way.So as I stare once more at the undressed Christmas tree, I allow only the warmth of your love close to me.



My head on your shoulder,
your heart beat next to mine,
the flesh quivers, the soul resigns,
for we are strengthened by our
love and the words are written like
a scroll in the heavens above.
.



Sings a little love song,
hums a familiar tune,
writes the words in
the heavens blue.

Embrace life,
dance within your heart,
move with the steps,
that join us from afar.



Sings a little love song,
hums a familiar tune,
writes the words in
the heavens blue.




Under the Blue Skies

Under the blue skies,
down  by the sea,
near a pine tree or
rolling in leaves.

When I am with you,
heart, soul or mind,
I feel the love that
conquers time.
~


No Christmas lights, 
no colors do I need, 
for I have your love 
and that's enough for me. 




No sadness, 
nor skies of gray,
for I have your love
the sunshine that never fades.
~
Dreams
Here are my dreams, 
this is my life, 
far from perfect,
and yet it feels right.


~
Sometimes the holidays which are meant to be a beautiful celebration of life and the gift of love are overwhelmed with the disappointment  of  to many expectations. There is no greater gift than to be loved.


 Sharing my pillow morning and night, 
watching you dream under the stars 
bright light. 


Strolling down the lane,
 holding your hand turns
 away skies of gray.


By the sea, on a mountain, 
 in a field we lay, in the 
clouds through sunshine
 or rain. 


~


 Holly or mistletoe,
morning or night,
I'll kiss you sweet
darling for the rest
of my life.

~

Can't sleep until whisper in your ear> I love you...good night !

December 1st

Think... sweet kisses,
hands held tight,
arms around you,
love in sight.

Think... sweet blessings,
yours and mine,
grace our lives,
till the end of time.

Think... the moment,
when dreams are made,
some come true and
others fade.

Think... my love,
I give to you,
from earth to the
heavens, just us two.

~
Calms my spirit, soothes my mind,
the road to heaven is mighty fine.
You and I travel far as we meet
each night beyond the stars.

~
Heaven is when your heart is open 
and love walks in . 
~



I am most at peace,
when I can feel your love.

Celebrate

I spoke to my heart and I asked "what do you feel?" and at first the heart quivered and for a mere second it stood still and than it just whispered " sweet love, I feel, a tease like a rain drop cool on the skin causes a shiver and wakes from within" Amazed by the response I smiled and I giggled and the memories flowed and inside and out I started to wiggle. Love is empowering and fills  a tremendous need. pure, untainted and absent of greed. Again I questioned in an obvious plea " heart tell me what did you see?"" The heart  paused for a moment or two and suddenly chanted" I saw the love, the love that lives in you" Some sit in judgement rules are made and it feels like a caretaker digging a grave. One last question came to mind, I blurted out loudly as if temporarily insane " tell me heart, let me know, who wrote the script and which way to go?" The heart beat quickly giving my soul a test and quickly responded with " surely you jest?" " The journey is a script from the heavens above and the road is paved strictly of love. There are bridges and valleys, rivers and seas but the path of love can bring down the largest of trees. No barriers of brick, no mountains high as the path you follow comes from inside. " I pondered as I gazed through the window of life at a journey that was not always easy and right. Choices were made and choices I followed and some led me out of the depths of the hollow. Solemn I felt the shadows of fear that kept me from listening with both of my ears. The morning is nearing, goodbye night sky, I am ready and waiting for that first glimpse of sun light. With love in my heart and the path through the hollow,  I will count my blessing as my soul I follow.

Love is so wonderful and beautiful as can be,
like a warm summer breeze that reached on
out to me.


I  celebrate the moment you first said hello to me,
took  my hand and held it and redid all my dreams.

Sent to me your love  in a  gift for all eternity, with
a ribbon red upon your  heart  filled  with memories.

I  celebrate the moment you first said hello to me,
took  my hand and held it and redid all my dreams.

Triggered the smiles from deep down inside and
added the passion that set my soul on fire..

Sincerely The Moonglows

Barefoot in the Snow


To dance in your arms,
and feel your heart beat,
to the song of love that
you sing to me.

To whisper of love on
the clouds high and embrace
your love in the blue of the
sky.


~
Barefoot in the snow, 
dancing on the clouds,
snowflakes on my tongue,
love within my heart and
the dreams of the soul. 

~
It is because I knew what I didn't have, 
that I now know what I do have. 
~
When despair is heavy and drapes the eve,
I think of your love and I am showered by spring. 
~

Love is unselfish...
~

I ask for no more than you my love can give,
for I have all that is needed for in my heart you live. 


Unlock my heart that I may feel
the sweet touch of love to my
soul  leaves a  brazen chill.

Open my eyes so that I'll see,
the visions of love when you
are side by side close to me.
As the flames reach beyond their realm of existence,
I feel your love touch my heart and embrace my spirit. 
~



When hearts are pure and passion flows free,
the souls are unleashed by love to 
soar through all our dreams. 

~
Page by page recorded the steps we take 
through life, some are filled with heartache
and have not been very nice. But love is 
so endearing and wonderful indeed and 
as we travel further we have only to believe. 


~

Your presence is felt like the wind to my cheek...
~
I placed my faith in the Lord above,
I knew he guide me safe and like the
waves that reach the shore your love
in my heart can be traced.

The Lord said " no more sorrow, no
fear shall you face, for you have met
with the earthly angels and they will
bargain with the hands of fate."

Tears welled up behind my eyes and
I thought just one would fall, until I
heard the words of love from the
mountains call.

Thanksgiving Review

My eldest son held thanksgiving dinner this year and though I tried to help him in the kitchen, I laughed as he scrambled about trying to make sure everything was warm at the same time. I looked on at my adult children who had all come together in a family celebration. It was some feat from the little boys who fussed with the potatoes in the kitchen, slid on the baking flour and ran around in their Batman and Robin P J's singing to a broom as a microphone .   The flash of memories reminded me of all that I had to be grateful for, but it was the steaming hot gravy that brought to mind my grandmother. I never realized just how important she was in my life. My grandfather had passed away long before I was born and my grandmother was a very strong individual. She always did her best to make a holiday and though it was a standing joke that the gravy was the only thing hot, it was amazing that she did so much alone. Once each school year we would go to where grandma worked and there I think is where she had the most impact on me. I saw her beauty, her smile, the sparkle in her eye, strength, wisdom and the love in her. She played a big part in my life, she taught me courage, the will to do and believe and balance and  that hard work rewards us with the proper time to relax. She loved to dress up, she loved the shimmer and sparkle and she loved life. As the day came quickly to and end, I had to give thanks that through such a young life of turmoil that I had such a person to look up to. 

I am grateful for all the experiences, 
past and present. 






Nothing is more wonderful than reaching out 
for your hand and feeling you reaching back. 
~
...they must be tears of happiness....I love you. 




~


...wipes a tear and smiles, thinks of you!


Holiday movies and silly songs, 
wishes and dreams of where I belong. 
Snowflakes in a winter storm on
the stage of life they miraculously 
perform.


Love brings me close to you and there 
is nothing we can't do. We'll take all
forms of time and create a concerto
 out of a love chime. 




~


The words all mingled together and I knew 
not what they meant, except for the words
of love which appeared to be heaven sent.
They cast you in my dreams and placed 
you in my heart and gave light to the dark.


Scattered here to where you are and 
placed together ignited a spark. The
power of my dreams is placing you
in my arms for all eternity. 




My soul enlightened and the heaviness gone, 
for I  now know exactly where I do belong.
Stars in the heavens twinkling bright, the
glow shining down in a wonderful sight. 


The angels are singing our sing, the 
song of love and how time did us wrong. 
Stand still when I am near you and close
to your heart, don't let another moment 
keep us apart. 






~
Holiday dreams and I am with you, 
simple magic where dreams come
true.


No promises needed for you have
my heart and that is the reason
we will never part. 
~


It is not about the holiday lights,
but the colored ones will do, as
I decorate for Christmas with
colors from red to green and blue.

Twinkle of magic and a dusting from
a far sprinkled love gently over our
hearts. Sweet kisses warm so
tenderly share the spirit of love
that took a hold of me..

Flattened a mountain and bridged the
mighty sea, placed you in my arms
where you were always meant to be.
Dance my love, dance with me, for
we are forever, like forever should be.




my dreams of you.

Christmas dreams and I am with you,

Blue Sky Blue

I blew away the darkness,
I shook away despair,
I opened up my heart 
and I found you
waiting there.

I felt your touch it 
warmed my soul,
magically took
center stage and
there your love 
unfolds.  

Far, far away beyond the mind , 
I ran for your embrace and your
love is what I found.

I belong to you and you belong to 
me, cliche as it may sound we 
unlocked eternity. 


The words I write ,
a story  tell of a love
sick woman  under a spell. 
She laughed and danced with 
glee from heaven to the earth
and across the sea.

Wonderful the mystery ,
open or closed the eyes see,
the beauty of love , the soul 
soaring above. Opening 
the heart to see that love 
is is like a warn day in 
spring.

The words I write ,
a story  tell of a love
sick woman  under a spell. 
She laughed and danced with 
glee from heaven to the earth
and across the sea.

Warm memories and energy, 
 a bright touch to the heart at night,
Smiles, smiles under the moon,
as a fragile heart begins to bloom.


The words I write ,
a story  tell of a love
sick woman  under a spell. 
She laughed and danced with 
glee from heaven to the earth
and across the sea.




Always in my heart,
forever entwined in my soul,
infused with happiness and dancing upon the clouds.


~
Your love makes me smile... as it warms my heart and tickles my soul.

Stars shining bright  fill the heavens with
a magical sight, twinkle, yes, twinkle yes
 I love him so , twinkle bright so he
will know.

Stars shining bright, fill the heavens with
a magical sight,twinkle yes, twinkle yes,
I love him so , twinkle bright so he
will know.

~
As far as the mountains would have it and 
as close as your love in my heart. 


Singing oh! yes I'm singing,
singing of my love for you.

I'd just wanna tell you, I  just want
you to know, how much I really love
you and  need you so.

Singing, oh! yes I'm singing,
singing my way to your arms.
~
If I were gonna make a rainbow,
I'd make it just for you, give it
all kinds of color, like the red
of a rose, the blue of the sky,
and the sparkle from my eyes,
on a bridge from me to you.

If I were gonna make a rainbow,
I'd make it just for you, add
all my love and kisses and hugs
and stretch it  across the
heavens big blue, directly
from me to you.

The Window of Life

The weather is unseasonably warm and grateful as I am, I know it is a short lived moment. I spent little time doing anything of importance and mostly relaxed from a very hectic weekend. I was listening to music  while driving down the road and a song came on that kind of took me back in time. I rarely go that far back in time, but it felt like like a sixty second flip book, While the pages of life flashed before me, I went from a small child, to a young woman to the present. I tried to hold back the tears but they just flowed as I tried to reason with the memories. What is the meaning of our journey and are we really responsible for all that happens? I think up to a point we are responsible but a good bit is out of our hands. Kind of reminds of the statement, that "we all have our heaven and hell." Part of me feels like that child of so many years ago and I find an uneasiness with the passing of time. Reluctantly I have said good by to family members , a sister, brother, father and close friends and wonder what the future holds.


Whispers to my soul,
from days of long ago,
reminders of a lifetime,
storms of summer and
a winter snow.

Stories unfolding,
and still I do not know
 the meaning of this
 journey and where
it will go.

Play a little music,
sing a little song,
dance all night,
compassionately  in
your arms.

Live the moment,
let love on in,
as we celebrate,
the happiness from
within.

Without You

It is not a dark and gloomy November day,
for I feel your love bright and your heart
warm touch my very soul. 

~

Priceless treasures are with us
 from the moment we open our eyes. 


~

I would rather write the words of love for all eternity
than scatters words of heartache so that sorrow may breed. 

Sings> I don't need a mountain to shout
from heavens high, my heart does the
whispering of the love that lives for
all time.

I don't need a story to tell you how
much I care, the words indelible are
written like magic through the air.

I don't need a song to sing of our love,
my souls plays upon the heart the music
of our ever lasting love.

I don't need a dream to cast you in my arms,
you have been there from day one safe with
in my heart.

I don't need  a ship to sail my love to you,
I placed it on a cloud and I sent my love
to you.

I don't need reminders like blue birds in
the sky, the sunrise in the morning, I have
the look in your eyes.

I don't need a memory of yesterday, all
I ever wanted is your love to never fade
away.

I don't need rainbows arched across the
sky, all I truly need is  sweetness of
your lips to mine.

I don't need strangers to acknowledge
how I feel, as long as you know it
all is right with the world.

I don't need to write a poem a day,
but as long as my hands are willing ,
my heart will write forever and a day.

I don't need anything but you, for you
my love are the meaning of the sky
blue.

~
Happiness is an incredible emotion
 gifted to anyone willing to accept. 





Smile and be happy,
no clouds of gray,
I am there with you.
throughout the day.

Smile and be happy,
grateful am I , for
the magic of life,that
put you by my side.

Smile and be happy,
this moment is true,
from the moment you
whispered I love you.

Smile and be happy,
pull that joy from inside
like the stars in the heavens,
our love will shine bright.


~

There is no sunshine in the morning,
no nightly stars shining bright,
no laughter without you,
no love without you in my life.

There is no music in the air,
no doves above the mountains high,
no signs of love until I look
into your heart and gaze into your eyes.

Without you the skies loses their
brilliant blue, the clouds drift away
and all that remains is the darkness
that distance creates.


Sings>Without you,
 there is no love,
 no joy in my heart,
only sadness and loneliness
from that which keeps you
a far.

Without you,
there is no dreams
no dance on the clouds,
no arms to catch me,
when I am falling down.

Without you,
there is no meaning,
to the moment in the day,
no reasoning that we should
be separated by clouds of
gray.

Without out you,
I am lonely, sad and blue,
wishing on the stars
for my dreams to come
true.


The absence of your love creates a
 void that cannot be filled. 

~

Feeling Red

With love you have the world at your fingertips...







I always thought red was a difficult color to pull off. I think it is a bold expression of ones personality. Today I am feeling red. Whether this little bit of an obnoxious attitude is a good thing or not is to be seen. 

Brave and gutsy,
strong and bold,
feeling red, like 
days of old. 

Beyond the tears,
no more sorrow,
happiness awaits
our tomorrows. 



The more things in life we are involved with, 
the more complicated it becomes. 

~
Sometimes nothing is more...

Comfortably in your arms.

Gazed unto the bluest sky that I had ever seen,
strolled the shores of life waiting on a dream.
The wind blew like a storm on a winter day,
a roar that to my soul shouted out your name.

Gazed unto the bluest sky that I had ever seen,
strolled the shores of life waiting on a dream.
The heavens bowed gracefully as they cast
you in my path, showers of love in which
I take a bath.


Gazed unto the bluest sky that I had ever seen,
strolled the shores of life waiting on a dream.
Silence controlled the night until my heart soared free,
and there above the clouds you can hear it sing.



Gazed unto the bluest sky that I had ever seen,
strolled the shores of life waiting on a dream.
Rumbling and roaring, I ran into your arms,
felt life dissipate as I felt free from harm.


Gazed unto the bluest sky that I had ever seen,
strolled the shores of life waiting on a dream.
Grateful am I to explore a day, while on a
journey to where love makes a grand display.




Gazed unto the bluest sky that I had ever seen,
strolled the shores of life waiting on a dream.
Sand between my toes and waves that rush to
shore and somewhere in the equation our love
was born.


Gazed unto the bluest sky that I had ever seen,
strolled the shores of life waiting on a dream.
Felt your hand reach for mine and frozen I
stood still and yet my heart was racing as
your love was willed.


Gazed unto the bluest sky that I had ever seen,
strolled the shores of life waiting on a dream.
Laid down next to you , to feel your heart beat
and their I document our love for eternity.


Gazed unto the bluest sky that I had ever seen,
strolled the shores of life waiting on a dream.
I felt the moment, I felt your love, holding me
close as you whispering undying words of love.




Gazed unto the bluest sky that I had ever seen,
strolled the shores of life waiting on a dream.








Sings> Like the wind that blows from afar,
           may my love reach out to your heart.
           Counting the moonbeams, dancing
           on the stars in our dreams, holding
          you in my arms for all eternity.


          Like the wind that blows from afar,
           may my love reach out to your heart.
          Hold me  lose to you and don't let go,
          I'll see us through the winter snow.
~

When I need your lovin and to feel your warm embrace,
I close my eyes darling and we are standing face to face.
Pull me close as two hearts can be with the merging of souls
begins a new dream.


When I need your lovin and to feel your warm embrace,
I close my eyes darling and we are standing face to face.
Somethings are of an everlasting desire, a magic of life
that truly does inspire.
~
Dead end roadways no where to go,
running around in circles like a rabbit
on the go.

Stumbles and occasionally falls, but this
is where you reached on out and I
felt your love flow.
~

I feel the most sense of peace when your love finds it place within my heart....I love you.

~

It is a Need...I need you!

O, I hold close sweet love, 
  and in my heart it lives, 
the joy of happiness, that
  only true love gives. 

~
Frazzled until the wings of your love lifted me in flight 
there upon the clouds ...we dance. 


I have met many a soul, 
a few were worth the meeting, 
but one is extra special and the
memory worth repeating. 

~

It is not until you listen to the whispers of the soul, 
that you understand the magic of loves hold. 
~
Right now, at this very moment, 
I close my eyes, open my heart and 
embrace with my soul....your love. 
~

It was in the absence of love 
that I saw the truth of yesterdays revelation. 


It is not of want nor need
that I reach for you, naturally
it is of true love that I know
what I need to do.

To feel the embrace of your
sweet love, day and night
and wake each morning
with your love the guiding light.

My eyes do not fail me they
see what others don't, what
my heart reveals to me in the
shadows of the dark.



Overcome by emotions,
my heart I give to you,
smiles and dreams and
days of love await the
merging of sweet love
from me to you.

To brighten your day,
when skies are no longer
blue and give to you my
kisses to see you through.




If you can hear me, listen well
and my heart will speak to you,
no tales or stories or poems of
love, only my sincere love for
you.

If you can feel me, embrace my
touch, my soul reaches out to you,
let it warm you inside and out as
as I send my love to you.

~


I said "no tears, no tear shall fall,
no sorrow or heartache" and yet
the memories still haunt to this
very day.

I said" no fear, no fear will there be,
and yet the days of turmoil continue
to follow me.

Cemetery of the Alleghenies

It has been said that " war is hell". Long after troops are with drawn and a war is declared over, the hell lives on in the minds of our returning soldiers and their families. On Veterans day we give tribute to those who paid the ultimate price for freedom and that is with their lives. Yet many times the horror that remains within those who actively served during war time is overlooked. War does not end simply by saying so, it haunts the living and those who never truly understand the evil that puts a nation on the defense. I am reminded by a simple statement made by a child " we are simply educated animals ." It is mind boggling when I think of how far we have come and not. That evil survives through hate, greed and ignorance and that we can replace an organ and create artificial knee's and hips yet we can't begin to work together as one unit in the name of Peace.
I am amazed when I look back on childhood and think how much a ten year old thinks about. I remember wanting to find a cure for mental health issues. To this day the brain is still a guarded secret, as much as we have learned about  DNA and the chemicals that control it , much is still unknown. What triggers flash backs? Sometimes a word, a memory or  a thought. Why is it that some humans have difficulty of letting go of the negative? Many times it is those whose heart or emotions conflict with the minds thought. I hope that people begin to see not only the physical wounds that are contributed by war, but the mental wounds that for some may never heal.

The Cost of Freedom

It is true that many died,
so that we may live in peace.
Battles won and battles lost,
and days laced with defeat.

Some look at the cost as
a monetary loss, but life is
so darn precious each soul
to our hearts embossed.
