Today I am happy just because! Just because...the sun is shining, Just because...the sky is such a beautiful shade of blue,Just because...I got up this morning and I am breathing...well isn't that enough?

Cloudy Skies

Today started out gray; the weather forecast predicted that it would be a dark and rainy day, so I dressed accordingly.
Halfway through what I was so sure would be a dismal day- something happened. The sun came out and chased the clouds away .
Life can sometimes be this way, you may believe or have been told that your goals are unattainable and believing this never strive to reach those lofty dreams but when we listen and accept those negative thoughts they become a dark cloud over our perspective. Look for the sun in any circumstance and it will be sure to come out and chase those storm clouds away .

With one look I'm lost,
Captured as if within a snare,
My traitorous heart gives me away,
Pounding faster and faster within my chest,
Face flushed and with bated breath I return your smile,
Your eyes smolder as they gaze into mine,
The wonderment of shared affection,
It is only a moment-less than a moment,
But time freezes to a stand still every time you are near,
In your eyes I see a lifetime,
And just like that you are gone and I am left bereft,
Left feeling empty and alone,
And I wonder for the millionth time-could you be the one?
My other half?
The Teacake to my Janie?
The Mr Darcy to my Elizabeth?
Time will tell whispers my mind,
But when? Pleads my heart,


It is my favorite word, translates easily among foreign languages .

Only takes four letters to make my heart sing; it is LOVE . I wrote it in all caps because let's face it, it's not a wimpy word. It in fact takes courage to love .

In no other situation would one close their eyes tightly and jump blindly; but with love that is exactly what we do and with a huge Colgate smile pasted to our face as well .

For we have no clue when we take that leap of faith what will be waiting for us when our feet finally touch the ground -or whether or not we will even make it to land !

Nevertheless no sweeter kiss have I ever known than the kiss of love, and I crave it like dark chocolate; no matter the occasional bitter after taste .

My favorite quote by English poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson sums up my feelings on the matter entirely "Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all"

So no matter how many times I have to beseech love "Et tu, Love?"

I will keep c…


I'm thankful for.....
Sunny days Star filled nights Family and Friends offering kinds words during difficult times My vision being cleared to see that life is a learning process and that what is important is not the difficult times you may be going through, but how you handle it . Also never forgetting that every cloud, no matter how dark, and ominous has a silver lining .


What does happen to a dream deferred? This famous poem written by Langston Hughes poses a good question. I, like millions -if not billions of people world wide- too have deferred dreams. These dreams flit sometimes annoyingly across the the horizon of my subconscious . But unlike Langston's poem I view my dreams through a protective bubble of hope . I am a firm believer in hope and faith being the vehicles that bring miracles to life . My dreams hover like a tangible mirage just waiting for me to grab a hold of . The beautiful thing about life is that with each new day we are given a fresh chance at starting a new . A brighter dream I have never seen ...

Hope In All It's Glory

It comes unbidden,
Lips pressed to a cool pane of glass,
Eyes cast up to catch a glint of sunshine,
It is hope in all it's glory,
A rainbow at the end of a dark lane,
The touch of a feather against a weary brow,
It flickers bravely like an untended flame,
But once this fire starts it is hard to stop the blaze,


Shifting Axis

The world turns,
The seasons change,
The moon sleeps,
The sun wakes,
One constant that never changes is my love for you,
Apple of my eye,
Keeper of my soul,
You own the key that unlocks my heart's song,
Friends they come,
And friends may go,
But you my love are constant,


Day Dream

I dream of cotton candy clouds...of sunsets,
I long for fields of blooming lillies,
I float on the breath of a new day,
I dance to the song of the hummingbird,
Laugh out loud with the evening breeze,
I breathe,
I live,
I am,


And In The Beginning...
