light my fire



Rang and rang

Everyone jumped

Excitement ran high

What was in the big box

She watched as he opened it

Cheers rang out as each was dreaming

Of all the fun about to ensue

For the new kettle grill was in the house

Her around

From room to room

His feet between hers

She has nothing for him

In fact, she’d doing housework

He’s hoping she will drop something

Giving him a reason to be close

Such is a day in the life of a cat

blessed beams


Say that

The sun’s light

Is made from the

Smiles of our loved ones

Who have long since passed on

So we can have them with us

To warm our days and light our way

Their love reaches our hearts on its rays

Every sunrise, we can return the smiles

guardian glass



Was pelted

With driving rain

As the spring storm raged

Trees bent in submission

Animals ran for cover

The steadfast window remained strong

The thirsty earth and eager gardens

The only place the water was let in

The light

Of sunset

Silhouetting trees

Causing leaves to sparkle

Firing rainbow beams about

Day lilies prepare for sleep

Blue sky realizing its fate

Lets go of clouds in favor of stars

Dreamers everywhere prepare petitions

On your wings

Of feathers light

Calling me to wake

As you soar overhead

Singing to me as you pass

My heart connects with your spirit

Feeling the pull to share adventure

Your example of flying free offers

meant to be


Got the

Chops to make

Your life succeed

To reach all your goals

To make your dreams come true

Because you were born to be

A winner and a shining star

Your destiny was calling to you

From the moment you opened your bright eyes
