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.






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.


Something to Buy



Searching For A Christmas Formula

The green Christmas tree

stands tall in living rooms.

Some may be small or white,

or with poinsettia blooms.


A little bit of nature inside

our houses and minds,

the lights  take flight

in our eyes, for life

with spirit is worth

living  and presents

to be. Where are you

at any present moment,

but a moment away from

the fence. A boundary from

freedom, but ready to fly

away free.

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.



Thank you for reading!!!!!

Poetry for a While


Sometimes you meet someone

who is just about everything

you ever wished for in a partner.

Just about is realistic as our imagination

leads us down roads that can put

our partners at a disadvantage.

This to me was where art was invented.

Loving someone is easy always at first.

As we learn more and more and repeat

ourselves, and get more comfortable,

it so where the fun begins.

The comfort of a long term relationship

allows for creativity and love expanding.

Every meal is a time to savor and make

life special together. Every word from

your life partner’s mouth is a chance

to know how to help them be happy.

And there strength and effort

to do make you happy can never be taken for granted.

We must love each other

no matter what. We must watch love

grow like life grows inside a woman’s

womb. This is life, discovering what is new

and finding the fantastic around corners

you would have never guessed were there.

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.


A Strange Link

For the Love of Travel/Travel for Love Poetry/Curtail Sonnet


Curtail sonnet is a ten line sonnet, give or take and is a basic shortened version of the regular sonnet which is usually fourteen lines. Originally from Italy and translated as “little song” , you can easily see the simple few lines as the transfer of the feeling of inspired love by a known or new found muse.

I finally realize love is an emotion led by many things and in different ways by everyone. It took me a while to realize how easy it is to make a conscious effort to call upon the love that I have in my heart and to reveal and be proud of feeling love and being loved. Travel is one thing that opens my love heart and inspires lots of possibilities and wonderful ideas. I am going to try my hand at a curtail sonnet about travel and hopefully a little love.

Your voice stops for a moment,

and you ask me how I am.

Your love repairs what’s broken

and humbles me to a lamb.

I cuddle to you dragon

no longer with fear,

our spirits vaporize

love, peace, and strength our prize.

Fur and bees and everything zen

drive our fantasies and join our traveling lives.

So there is a little ten line sonnet, a curtail sonnet. It if course ca be worked on a little more and edited, but it is a start. Try your hand at a curtail sonnet and read it aloud. Rhyme and rhythm play heavily into sonnets, so you can work on that to. The end rhyme can have a  pattern but they can also be free, whatever you would like, and whatever fits in with what you are trying to say.
