In Honor and Appreciation …
When a poet dies
Life sprinkles all around us
Their words reaching out
All at once, for all time,
Essence of hearts
Once shared in delicate shades of love.
What to do
When a poet becomes a part of you
Without a trace of where they have gone,
Only words they have left behind
And an unwritten poem entailing why?
Influence, intellect, words so personally seeded
Is who they were, and what they had given –
Unselfishness to be remembered
For the poetry they loved for us
And wrote endearingly!
Poetic soldiers, writing fearlessly to the world
Until their words ran out of run,
Their passion lives on strikingly rich
For soldiered generations to come!
Echoes of their poetry bloom our hearts
Creating a path to walk easy in today
Paved by the words they had flowered –
In brightly painted gardens of yesterday!
Poetry always arrives with the snow –
Then off to Spring, such a pretty young thing
What better a place for a memory to grow
And melt the heart when remembering!?
For those before, and then Shakespeare, and all across the lands, to here and now
Whom have shared their words and touched our hearts so beautifully.

Me epistles, My poems
Have been to each of you my dear heartwarming friends, and acquaintances of my life. I am so beautifully blessed to have the most Gorgeous, Courageous, Influential movers and shakers in my circle of life!
To each of you,
You have been the bubbly surprises that fill my heart with love!
Mind and Soul
Whom hold understanding and Riches of heart in highest regard.
Your greatest attributes, and my Tender Mercies…
And your hugs and smiles conquer my vulnerabilities and sensitivity.
My soul shines remnants of our friendships, an any given time…
When we laughed, cherished, and unwantingly cried.
Life at our feet, and together we carry our burdens long haul
Together, the softer, through it all!
My love for each of you grows ripe along Vivacious Vine
As together we grow older, gracefully, like a sweet fine wine!
And as the good Lord barricades our Holdings of Sage
Let us raise our glasses to the importance of Saving Grace… for wage!

In the element of surprise!
Tiniest non-perishable where comfort lies!
The part of life that means everything to me
The part of life that often gets discarded in trivial pursuits.
Pillow soft marvels some call days
Difference of opinions experience sway.
Goodness morn, sweet doe eyed wake!
The good Lord branded this life bestowed
So be it, be it undraped
Joined at the heart, jeweled and sewn!
Where I end up, is where I have been
Climbing mountains and barreling again,
To land on my feet and brush off my knees –
In the upright position of mirthful blessings,
And my satchel of wisdom and sin confessings!
Be still my heart, in this element of hark!
Be still these ears to perilous noise,
Three steps back far wide from the mark?
Climbed too many mountains to disfigure rejoice!

Numerous times in death’s war zone, helpless.
Stripped down to the harshness of moments too soon
Watching loved ones die,
Not everyone gets to come home again!
Time nagged on about sunshiny days
Or drowning in sorrows
And why take a chance on tomorrow’s no guarantee?
“A river is deep, but an ocean is shallow”
On my own, with the infamous ruby reds
With skies still blue, what to do? What to do?
So I clicked my heels and fell in love with the world …
Inviting my nature to dance!
Anguish never had a chance to hold me down.
No! Not this time …
Though that was years ago.
I kicked off those ruby red slippers
And I ran with my loved ones deep within my heart
I ran all the way home into my life!
Chilled to the bones rattled my chains and I broke free!
Free to give the love that had been given to me
Free to pass down the ruby slippers –
By those who won’t be coming home,
Free to love this life, this world,
And the fragile I fuse
To remember that I am not alone!
