Victory of Spirit

The drop of clean water

enters the dry mouth

and dry sky orange

vitamin C tablet follows.

The skin has begun to give more.

It has given thousands of seconds

of energy to help feed the world.

It is not innocent

although it came into the world

thinking of innocence.

Hoping to stay that way,

but time and knowledge

and loneliness pushed it

into different realms.

The spirit is stronger

then the skin.

Knowledge has to take

care of it all now.

Every soul the spirit

learned along the way

has made a positive

impression like the sun

or a negative impression

like the dark places on

a strip of film.

It is breath now

and hope to help

the spirit win.

As long as the spirit

lives the spirit wins.

You can find the spirit

looking at the mountains,

swimming in the sea,

or listening to the forest.

The spirit looks above

the negative words,

moments, energies

looking for positive

moments of nature.






Love In Surprise

carr 300

If you ever wonder

what loves is,

I realize there

is no easy answer to this.

What I have seen

is first, when I love myself

and I love someone else

and they love themselves

and all the love comes together

and just is,

surprise becomes

every word

and decision

and I do not even know what I

am I doing

I just do it  and believe

like say,” I love you,”

despite some falling apart

around us, we just

love one another

and smile

and laugh

and fight

and cry

and care.

I don’t have

a mansion

but I feel rich

I don’t drive a shiny sports car

but I feel I have more power

than one. I am not the richest

person in the world in cash, but

for every dollar someone might

have I have millions of moments of human

connection that gives me strength to make more

money than I know what to do with.

Love has no definition only examples

and experiences for those brave

enough to let go.


January Creativity Calls


January Embrace or Escape

The new year has started.

Where are you at in your life?

Where you just born,

are you striving or struggling in college?

Have you made your mark in the world?

Is it cold where you are?

Do you want to get on a plane

and go where it is warm?

Where the water is green, blue, and clear,

or do you choose to stay and embrace

the white of the snow,

the warmth of the fire?

Will you embrace

the time to stay inside

and work, to write, to be creative

when outside fun may be hindered by the cold.

What is your creative calling?

Do you not know?

It is time to find out?

Where is your creative capital?

Painting, writing, designing,

crafting, movie making?

There are so many options.

It is time to cook up your creativity

if you wish and find your unique recipes!

Every moment this year can be filled

by you to discover your very own escape.


Thank you for reading, liking, or commenting. Have a creative day!

New, Change, And Control By Not Controlling


Eyes up, mind Up

Your life can be yours

just like the DNA

you were born with.

What will you keep

the same this year,

your furniture arrangement,

your clothing style,

the way you treat your friends.

Do you need to change anything?

Will your life change without your permission?

Are you ready?

Do you want to control your life,

like a millwheel controls water.

Can you handle allowing

something out of your control

yet having the patience

to wait to do your part.

Having an open mind

to get to know someone you don’t.

The circle loves to ostracize something different.

There is always something to learn,

like how to cook that Cornish hen,

or what has that person done in their life

that is different from everyone else’s.

Here’s to the ones who brave to be different.

Here’s to the ones that see life new every day.

Never ask three major favor’s from a person

that saves you a lot of money and might inconvenience

them yet they are willing to be hospitable on

very short notice.

Strange to make them pay for the lunch or dinner,

and not even bring them a bottle of wine

or treats, or something.

It is just bad manners.

Are you looking for power

when there really is none, anywhere.

Have you realized we are powerless

yet we have to keep smiling anyway?

Sitting on the porch

sipping a cup of coffee

watching the mountains

is still an amazing feeling.

What Does it Taste Like?

A cupcake looks beautiful and tastes beautiful,

like a sweet cloud at sunset among pinks, lavenders,

and blues. The sugar runs through me like the wind

while at the same time damaging my already fragile

system. I don’t care as it is worth the beauty on my tongue.

Do I care it will add to my already full hips, recessing lips,

and aging skin, nope. It is worth it. Sometimes, I have to do

what I know is wrong as I spend my life doing what is suppose

to be right yet I see others fly so high doing what I dare not do.

Not Good Enough

Italy 2009 721

It is so easy to feel not good enough,

whether it is my own comparison to other people’s work, lives, or possesions

or because someone has made a comment that I need to excercise or

they tell me how I could be happy if I worked a 9 to 5 job that I hate.

It is a spirit and a hope pushing those feelings away

to make room for the new that I want to feel,

that brand new discovery of something I like.

I reach out to those who feel inclined to insult me to help me.

I try to just go to them to support them in their endeavors.

It is a bit awkward when I do yoga everyday and walk, so I guess

they are looking for someone a bit more perfect than me.

I feel like they think to themselves, why am I not getting what I want from her.

A few might think about what might insults a woman and there is the answer.

They never think maybe there are things I could insult them,

but I don’t, because it might make them feel not good enough.

My life is a momentary flash on this small earth in this great galaxy.

I want to be happy and healthy and a little fat is not what anyone

will remember in the end.

You may be traveling to get somewhere and have to forgo some things

in order to reach your destination for your next great adventure.

Some people will not know how to help you for sure and in the process

forget their heart. Do not ever let anyone’s momentary dementia deter you

from the love you want to be.

Following the Words

Swirling in the rhythm of life, my heart,

finding the words that match

the spirit inside that drives the day.

My heart swirls and finds peace for

a length of time the length of a twig,

before it is looking for more.

Why does it think it needs more,

there is always more.

Power is so uninteresting to my heart,

only love, only nature, only harmony

with the one I love.

My heart knows that peace does not last forever,

but mine is a patient heart and it waits for that amazing

moment when the peace happens all over again.
