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

20160410_154146.jpg

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!

 

Something to Buy

 

Snow For Clarity

The window opens.

The snow breeze cools

my face and heart!

This is good as the chill

is like little hands

pushing me through the day.

I can accomplish

something as a woman,

as a person.

The mix of food is calling

me in the fridge.

What am I going to create

today? What mystery of spices

is going to warm my samplers soul.

They may be a victim

if the taste isn’t good.

The judgment can be harsh,

as we all have our own tongue.

Frosting is white, white cheddar

soup is white, maybe a little broccoli

representing the pines in the snow.

Do I go high fat or low calorie,

so many options.

Marshmallow snow cookies,

this may be the thing to bake,

while the chill of winter

pours into the bowl of

air outside.

I Do It Before

The Snow and cold are coming.

Although living in a tropical zone

for twenty years, I find myself

now near the mountains for love.

The snow and cold are coming,

on Thursday. Today is Tuesday.

The temp will be 50 degrees today.

I love it. There is a coolness to the air,

at 50 degrees, but not enough to make

me shiver. I will be outside as much

as I can. So that come Thursday,

I love being indoors, and not wish

to be out when the cold freezes

the path of my nose, and may freeze

my happiness if I stay out in the

16-degree weather for long. I make

sure to go outside before the cold

gets too cold. So curling up inside

feels like home and not something

forced upon me be weather nature.

 

Thank you for reading and liking!!!

Tofu For Two

When my tummy feels weak and I am looking for protein

I cut a slice of firm tofu and eat it

like a slice of cake.

It is cold and soothing in my mouth

and the taste is good if I am hungry,

very earthy but mild.

No, it is not a steak or even cake,

but it a satisfying healthy feel.

If I am really ambitious

I squirt some sriracha

on the top of this

strange spongy food.

I have to put in a sealed

container in the fridge

and hope I do not forget tofu

is there.

Cold is Beauty A Poem About The Cold

I am slap happy with the metaphors lately. I just can’t stop trying to come up with metaphors. So I have to write about the cold for this morning, since the northeast is feeling it and as I wake up hear in the south, I am feeling the shiver as well.

Cold is Beauty

The snow has fallen on the earth,

and white erases the blemishes

like foundation and the land

smooths for a photograph.

I here the quiet of the cold

and feel beautiful, somehow.

The cold brightens my eyes

and freezes the strife inside

leaving only angels to float

in my veins, and gather in my soul.

Cold is beauty, the real baptism

before spring comes and

real life begins again.
