Pine needles

Falling to the floor.

The tree quit taking water,

No longer thirsty.

The New Year is calling;

The clock strikes 12.

Auld Lange Syne

As I wipe tears from my


For the loves lost.

(Thump goes my heart)

Grateful for every breath.

This year went by

Like all those past

And the quicker they go

The older I get.


Tick Tock


We all know times flows and it


Fast when we want it slow,

And slow when we want it to move fast.

But it is true

Things will happen when they happen

And we will get there when we get there.

Without a clock time

Still somehow moves,

So do our hearts

And our very cells.

So just be grateful and stop your fretting

Because letting go of all that worry,

That Tick Tock hurry,

Will set you free.

They Too


I used to run and hide when people hurt me.

I gave away my power without a second thought.

I used to give them my tears and time.

I am learning to turn around


To forgive and honor the soul of each heart and mind.

To give more tears and time

To joy.

To see beauty in both dreams and reality.

I am learning they too are afraid,

They just show it in a different way.




There you are,

A neutron star.

Your heart is my magnetic north,

Pulling me in closer

With such ease.


And on we go.

You and I



To explore

The unnamed constellations.

Unnoticed places.

Plans forgotten for the day now,

Sway into me.

Take me into

The hidden passages

Of your heart and mind.

The intersection

Where dreams meet reality

Creating a new dimension

In the soul.

Let us misplace our minds and

Vanish all together.



Little trinkets in my drawer;

My nightstand

Where i keep my most valuable


They would mean nothing to

Anyone else.

I put them out sometimes and reminisce.

What memory may be tugging at my heart?

What color am i feeling today?


Or happy.

Maybe sad and missing someone,

Missing someplace.

Maybe i should toss them all out

And start over.
