#Sedoka: This Pain

When will this pain end?”
I said to myself today
Then fell to my knees to pray

Maybe God will help
If I ask Him this today
Please God, take this pain away”

Save Our Children – A Double Sedoka

Death is everywhere
No place is safe anymore
Our children are being shot

Stop all the madness
We’ve done nothing for too long
The time has come to end this

No more loss of life
It’s time to end this killing
Too much death, too much sadness

Now’s the time to act
Save our children, start today
Let them live to laugh and play

Our Highland Acres Ranch (A Double Sedoka)

Highland Acres Ranch
Home to our dogs and horses
Comfort for all of our souls

Life in the country
Where I write my poetry
I think I’ll stay here awhile

We have rescue dogs
Nine of them to be exact
Eight are females, one is male

He weighs just ten pounds
But he thinks he’s a Great Dane
Small body, large heart, no fear

My Writing Is More Than Words

As writers, we all use words as building blocks
Put together in sentences
Paragraphs
Chapters

My writing is more than just words
The words come from my heart
The writing comes from love
So much more than just words

When I hear the sounds of the night
The wind through the trees
The laughter of my grandsons
I start putting them to words

Words that describe how they make me feel
About love and life
Good times and bad
I write what I feel

Anyone can put words on paper
But can anyone create images with those words?
Feelings?
Memories in your own mind?

I write from almost 74 years of life
Ups and downs
Around and around
My words are my life

When you sit down to write
Let your mind fly free
Let the memories caress you
Like mine have with me

So open your mind
Let your fantasies unwind
They are more than mere words
If you just take the time

Whether your thoughts or mine
We’re all much the same
So write down your words
And your memory will remain
