Ruling

heart2

This obsessing has me fatigued
admittedly, you have me intrigued
For everywhere I look
you’re like a good book
I can’t seem to shake you
or bid you adieu
You live in my dreams
so real they seem
Invading my personal space
I need a hiding place
Your lips, your eyes
to be spellbound would be unwise
But, oh, how you make me feel
it’s positively surreal
I can’t commit to a declaration
of whether this is love or infatuation
although, I must concede to my desires
and the lighting of our fires
I’ve been arrested by your charms
as you hold me in your arms
My self control is missing
So sentence me to “kissing”

Man’s Best Friend’s Entertaining Antics

Ever since Copper became a member of our family,
squirrels have become the “bane of my existence!”
He shows tremendous confidence in being able
to catch the fast little critters, but to no avail.

feeling so close, yet so far
there’s hope for next time

 High up in the sky

looking down as if to smile

they always prevail

(but Copper also shares mellow moments
where he breathes in the beauty around him)

The enjoyment and fun our furry pets provide us
is priceless and worth a million smiles…

A Gift to Ourselves

two-hands-holding-a-glowing-heartIf nothing makes sense
and your world seems upside down
teetering on the brink
of emotional upset
Be Kind

If angry feelings harbor
in your leaden heart
tie them to an anchor
let it drop
Be Free

If the force inside your being
is pushing you to the edge
gather strength to offer your hand
take one step back
Be There

A simple act
made effortlessly

will have a loving impact
Two souls will no longer
feel somber
Two hearts will no longer
be heavy

I’m not sure if this would be considered poetry,
but it’s something to think about 
when our emotions are unbalanced.
Wishing you all a bright Monday. xo

Windy Fog & Duck Faces :)

Happy Friday, Everyone! I’m grateful for every day, but I can’t deny how glad I am when Friday rolls around. Anyway, for some “end of week” smiles, I’m sharing just a few photos taken yesterday at the Marin Headlands with my daughter and our dog, Copper…It was real foggy and super windy, but we still had a fun time. Although, I think Copper had had enough of the wind. 🙂 Gorgeous views even in the fog, which adds mystery to the photo, I think..you’ll see the Golden Gate bridge is trying to push through and make itself known and the sky couldn’t have been bluer. The last photo is Copper and I making duck faces, while my daughter looks beautiful. 🙂golden gate in the fog

Friday Flora & Fun

In my last post, I mentioned that I’ve always loved taking photos. So I’m sharing some flowers for your Friday, though they are amateur. Currently, my only camera is my iPhone, which isn’t the best, but it works for me and is easy! 🙂 Along with the flora, I’ll add a little rhyming fun for this day and I hope you enjoy!

Today is great
for happy dancing and
jolly singing, too – ♫
not only for a Friday,
any day will surely do!

Why Worry?

worried smiley face

What good does it do
except hang around
like super glue
causing nothing but
jitters in the belly
upsetting the gut

Your head’s a tornado
spinning
up a storm
Confusion
Concern
Anxiety
aren’t the norm

Emotions pour out
with implacable power
Oh, how you wish
the tempest would cower

What good does it do
besides make us blue?

By writing this doesn’t mean I never worry,
in fact, it seems there is more reason for it, lately.
But I think we all know it does no good.
So here’s to moving forward with Hope,
Faith and Optimism. 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by
and have a wonderful day! ♥
