A Valentine’s Day Wish

valentines-day tree

Candy hearts that say Be Mine
Red roses that mean forever
Fancy dinners for two in love
A night to spend together

But what about the lonely –
The broken hearts and souls?
What about the hopeless
Where life has taken its toll?

For even couples can show kindness
To those who feel unloved
Their lives are full of desolation
They long for a simple, friendly hug

So on this day where hearts abound
Give love where you find sadness
Then all of us can celebrate with
Rich emotions of gladness

Wishes, New Days, & Popcorn!

Visualize it: Close your eyes. Get in the zone, and focus solely on your wish – Nothing else!  Another idea is to make a Vision Board. Have you heard of these? Cut out photos from magazines that represent your wish. Or, if you’re super creative and skilled, you could draw, draw, draw! 

Believe it: Don’t let the face of doubt stare you down into a puddle of self-pity.
Don’t let the hand of
negativity hold you down in the sinkhole of “I can’ts.”

Do it: Take action! If you think by sitting on your sofa – remote in one hand, popcorn in the other – is going to make your wish a reality…think again!

(It’s as simple as that.) 

 

New Day, New Dreams

Today’s a new day
for that baby step
Don’t even look back
just take a deep breath

 Don’t listen to words
that may keep you still
Optimism is your friend
along with your will

 Keep your dreams in view
not allowing them to stray
With fear on the sidelines
You Can Be Brave

 Instead of your heart
wear strength on your sleeve
Stay focused with soul
and in Yourself, Believe!

So, did you make a wish?
If so, what are you going to do about it?

Poem from my book,
New Day, New Dreams

Ideal

Beautiful Blooms June 2011 004

With a shy confession, I must admit
sometimes, I dream of perfection
where the road ahead is one of silk
and balance has no objection

Where answers dangle from the trees
as butterflies gently pass by
and happiness bounces, abundantly
as high as the big blue sky

However, perfection would prevent us
from growing through the strife
and maybe being grateful
wouldn’t live in our life

So our heartbeats set the cadence
as we march with steps of brave
We find good in the clouds
as the road ahead we pave

If You Believe

Don’t you wish that you could fly
above the clouds in the clear blue sky,
soaring with the angels near,
erasing all your worries and fear?

Wouldn’t it be amazing to swim
in the turquoise ocean just on a whim,
gliding with a friendly dolphin,
serenaded by an elegant violin?

Imagine skipping through a lush meadow
with the company of a vibrant butterfly show
or tip toeing amongst the glowing stars
to the music of strumming guitars

Close your eyes, twinkle your nose
Cross your arms, curl your toes
Blink three times, twirl around
Concentrate; okay, here goes…

Momentarily

While walking down the street,
I couldn’t help but feel peace,
listening to the rustling leaves

without the company of cars.
Then something pungent struck me,
so tangible, I could reach out

and touch…the fragrance of wealth,
and for a fleeting moment,
eyes slowly blinking,

I felt a sense of yearning.
Perhaps, there are those moments
where wishes aren’t so Heavenly,

but very earthly, indeed.
However, the hunger subsided
  as rapidly as it came to be

and I sighed, contentedly,
knowing God has provided me
with everything I truly need
