Itchy feet

This immense nation
With her brimming gorgeousness
Feeds my wanderlust

Cleansing concerto

With delightful abandon,
The role of a singer I don,
Orchestra in my fantasy,
Introduced by the emcee.

I belt out a few tunes,
Alternated by mellow croons,
I am the star of my concert,
With few high notes, I flirt.

The moment doesn’t last,
A peek at the time, I am aghast.
It was great while it lasted,
Music in my mind, I blasted.

The water stops and so do I,
Away from the eyes that pry,
My own stage, here I create,
With just me to appreciate!

Farther and Farther

One after another, my mind feels,
Life is a series of never-ending,
Setbacks and falling short ordeals,
And of tasks constantly pending.

A pause from it all I seek today,
Just for the catch up endeavor,
Over time, I realize in dismay,
Not today nor tomorrow, it’s never.

Wafting through the doors,
The smell of contentment,
Tinkling through the windows,
The sound of joyous giggles,
Shining through the glass,
The sight of blessed togetherness,
Tingling through the heart,
The feel of delightful camaraderie
Flowing through the homes,
The tasty deliciousness of the season!

Jolly Days

A time, it is now, to be with joy,
A time to look back and reflect,
To fondly remember and enjoy
The wonderful memories to select

A time to look within and assess,
A helpful hand to another, extend.
With hopes of bliss and happiness
And a lot of peaceful content!

Dawn anew

A new beginning to my journey,
Of life, a continuing tourney.
A resolution, I try to craft.
To not hinder my drift, my waft.

Unhurried and carefree, I hope to be,
Far from the unyielding rigid, I see,
Life is too short for stringent rules
Lay back a little, hoping it cools.

As I begin to start afresh,
My life with others does mesh,
With this hope that I set out,
a few will be touched, helped out!

Dreary misery

A belly load of laughter
Was the doctor’s orders
She’d rather pop the pills.

Life to her, hadn’t been kind,
But then she didn’t mind
Seeking love, she was in a bind.

She could never be happy,
Paranoid of it, she was,
Always a down followed an up!

She dodged the downs,
One painful blow after another,
They didn’t stop, so she had to?

A little one in her arms,
She hoped would do the deed
Would she get what she needs?

A belly load of laughter,
Joy beyond words
Things that money couldn’t buy.

A connection I had slowly built
A familiar face among the many,
Life has to go on, doesn't it?
As if happenings there weren't any.

A dull day it was overall,
As a fellow being affected I am,
Not a thing over which to bawl,
but my days shall take a slam.

Sending out a prayer unspoken,
For the well being of one and all,
For the one to recover from broken,
Give out good wishes, I shall.

Frigid fury

Grave warnings abound,
Storm watch and wind advisory,
Weathering pre winter storms.
Mixed precipitation pelted hard.
Slushy dirty snow flooded
Automobiles and people alike
Howling winds compete
For their share of damage,
Mother nature on an offensive
Ripping power lines apart,
Trees fall like toothpicks,
Manpower stands no chance
People lithely cancel plans
And patiently await the calm

Off color

Down I am today,
Achy all over I feel
Body doesn’t cooperate,
As much as mind wills it to
Croaky I sound groaning,
The cliched sore throat
And the archaic runny nose
Weird how I caught it
Careful that I am
Strange are the ways of,
The body, the human machine!

A snowy shindig

Just another day, it was to be
But set out, on our way to see,
Among them all, a special few
A visit that was long overdue.

A snowy day was predicted
Brave it we will, we indicated.
The little ones continued to enthrall,
A lovely time was had by all.

Nip in the air

Carelessly fondling my gloves,
A slight pull to my hat
I set out of the door

With a rude kick to my face,
The breezy chill awakens me,
Sending a harsh shiver down

Sumptuously dressed in layers,
I ready myself for the freeze,
Winter snuck up on me, uninvited!
