Blown Away

Her very special friends

Called her to come listen

To tales of where they’d been

So off she went

Her blanket on the ground

She sat beneath the trees

Her chin upon her knees

Deep in the woods

The stories she enjoyed

Stirring her eager heart

And she chose to depart

To join the wind

Quite a Tail

The little face poked out

Of the nest in the tree

Blinked, a new day to see

Sun on the rise

Happy little squirrel

Scampers down the branches

Off to take his chances

For adventure

Respected Repositories

Such wonderful secrets

Only best girlfriends share

With tender loving care

A precious bond

Confidants forever

The good stuff and the bad

The happy and the sad

Forge lifelong trust

Mitch is Da Man

It’s his Beatle birthday

My brother’s sixty-four

In, the good wishes pour

He deserves them

Wants not, a birthday cake

We’re buying him Chinese

We know it’s sure to please

He loves the stuff

To those who have no hope

An Angel pays a call

As in the manger’s stall

Watching over

Keeping them safe and sound

Wrapping them in strong wings

Be they, peasants or kings

Love’s always there
