Tropical Dreams

As I recall walking along the shore Waves lapping at my feet Thoughts of sunny days and moonlit nights Flood my memories It was from another time, another life A time of khaki shorts and tropical shirts Cheeseburgers in paradise And Jimmy Buffet concerts Summer storms, lightning flashes Watching for rainbows Waiting for the sun...

Old Stone Walls… Memories Of A Time Gone By

In a time many years ago, old dirt roads and homes were lined with old stone walls made from stones unearthed when fields were cleared and plowed. It was a simpler time, a time of dirt roads, sipping lemonade while sitting in a rocking chair on the front porch. Cows and horses roamed the fields... Continue Reading →

My Little Helper: A Cautionary Christmas Tale

A must read by an exceptional writer at almostiowa.com. you will love it!

Almost Iowa

Only rookies should make rookie mistakes.

Believe me, I am no rookie. I am a well seasoned spouse with decades of experience, yet I did what I did anyway.

We had just finished decorating for Christmas. All the ornaments were strung safely on the tree. Mary and Joseph waited patiently by the manger and the reflected glow of tinsel dappled the walls.

All was well.

Until….

I blame the hot chocolate.

Okay, I blame the peppermint schnapps I used to spike the hot chocolate. Surely, it was that. But whatever the mitigating circumstances, there was no excuse for asking, “Is there anything else you want done?”

She placed an index finger on her chin and pondered. “Let me think…is there anything else that needs to be done?”

As the milliseconds ticked slowly by and my stomach lurched into free-fall, I realized I had violated everything I learned in all my…

Blogmas Poem: Time to Remember

A beautiful Christmas poem by kaylaannauthor. 😃💛

KaylaAnn

“Howling wind slows midflight
At the sound of the infant’s cry
It too must take a breath,
To watch a miracle unfold.
The baying mule pauses its cry
When it hears the baby’s laughter.
He wonders who is the cream-colored creature
Asleep in his trough of hay.
A young mother pauses her prayers
To meet the heavy eyes of a father.
Their journey reflected in his joyful eyes;
A journey of trial and triumph.
Angels of fire and light release
A breath held, a too-long pause.
Their voices crescendo, shaking the Heavens
and waking sleeping men.
Magi with presents that shine
And shimmer; complete the fervent
Journey to bow in wonder
At a bundle swathed in cloths.
And now we students pause,
Suspend our studies, to remember
A story, to take a moment to praise
The birth of a Savior.​”

light bringer

A beautiful poem by my friend Forrest at Lithium Hammer.

Written in Blue Mercury

CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE

like light she enters
my mind when the sun rises
in the morning

throughout the day
I can’t go an hour
without thinking of her

at the end of the day
her sunset spreads like passion
in red hues across my mind

when it’s dark my thoughts
of her keep me safe from
my well-concealed fears

she’s my light bringer

The blackest night

A beautiful poem by my friend Trini at Paths Of The Spirit 💛

The Paths of the Spirit

As the days grow darker
A white frost comes
To reflect the light of Heaven,
And suddenly the blackest nights
Have become the brightest.
