A Future as One…

Swing with me

In a world of true make-believe

Where we are free

To embrace our dreams

Of tomorrow and today

Plans swirling as we play

Hold my hand, I’ll show you the way

Swing with me for eternity

Grow toward the sun.
Once planted, it’s begun.
New life springing forward.
Beauty progressing upward.
Warmth emanating.
Color cascading.
Lifting spirits high.
A floral lullaby.
Sorrow is left down below.
Happiness is in the glow…

Joyous Plumes…


My heart was troubled

Disconnected from the light

Deep in the throws of negativity

Viewing life with dark-filtered eyes


Serendipitously my attention refocused

On a small piece of creations’ beauty

Perfection in colors and patterns

God’s art arrayed, gloriously


With the filter no longer influencing my sight

I entered awe’s dwelling with a humbled heart

Experiencing needed pause and reflection

I was again centered in the moment, now unlocked


Hypnotized by the plumes of a peacock

I was instantly swept away

From the accumulated pain and sadness

I accepted throughout the day

I Choose Happiness… (Villanelle)



I will choose happiness today
It exists even when hidden
By life’s pain, I will not be swayed

Sorrow will surely come my way
Seeking my fall with ambition
I will choose happiness today

People will most likely betray
Channeling their anger wthin
By life’s pain I will not be swayed

My wishes will be cast away
Frustration Will attempt to win
I will choose happiness today

Annoyances will heavy weigh
Peace threatened by aggravation
By life’s pain I will not be swayed

Storms will come to lead me astray
Rain will impart strong affliction
I will choose happiness today
By life’s pain I will not be swayed
