self fulfilling

I chose to use the ETHEREE format because I love the build!

If

I could

Promise you

That everything

Will work out okay

You would have to believe

To make that promise come true

This is where words can inspire you

But the real work must come from within

Your participation founded in hope

Wonder and Believe

I

Wonder

About my

Choices sometimes

And if they serve me

Since we are all here to grow

Do my choices hold me back

So I guess only time will tell

My choice to believe that gives me hope

That my choices really do serve me well

Grin Guru

He

Told us

To smile more

Because smiling

Makes you feel better

It must be true because

Whenever he is around

He smiles and we all feel better

His reminder is a gift so we

Can feel good whether he is there or not

Sprite Fright

As

The mist

Is lifting

Tiny beings

Find themselves exposed

Seeking sanctuary

Of trees, bushes, and flowers

Too timid for interaction

With elementals of human kind

Waiting silently for mist to return

Jean Kelly

When

I was

A small child

I’d watch the rain

Every time it fell

In full awe of the show

Wondering when it would stop

Excited to have big puddles

Stayed on the porch until it was safe

Took off my socks and shoes and went dancing
