Love Cake

Mix together and stir the ingredients well
A life time of loyalty and companionship
add a pinch of humor and a sprinkling of tears
place in a pan of sharing and caring
then bake in a hot oven of passion for years

Secluded Moments

Solitude is a time
when we sit alone
and think of what
should have been
and how we can turn it into
what will be

For within solitude
is a special silence
a space we
treasure

Secluded moments
when dreams become reality
if only for a time

My Daily Ritual

On waking and rising

First foot to touch the floor
Thank you thank you thank you

Second foot to touch the floor
Thank you thank you thank you

Such is my daily ritual
in respect, adoration and honor
of my creator

Without daily thanks
we cannot move forward
we will remain as we are

Without daily thanks
we cannot appreciate
what we are or who we can become

A Lost World

In a world of harsh reality
When nothing matters anymore
I find it hard to remember
what dignity was for

I know that once there were manners
There were rules that kept us in check
I think that children learned from respect
I am sure in retrospect

We never saw sex and nudity
on the television
What happened to the standards of then?
Who made this bad decision?

Since all the values went out with the aged
I fear for the next generation
they flounder in an unstructured world
of sex and deprivation

An Era of Change

In My lifetime I experienced
an era of change
Television was invented in Colour
Racism came to and end as we had known it for years
Countries that once were, were no more
Communism was liberated
The great wall of china came down
Sexuality became open and freely explored
Implements of war were refined and massive
The seas began to rise
Global warming increased
Mobile phones were refined
Computers were invented and computer games took over
and I grew from innocent child
to worldly woman supplying the earth with four new groups
of future generations

The Nit Picker

A garden full of tender care
brings joy beyond and above
NOT UNLIKE A CHILD
When given unconditional love
For like a garden that’s picked and picked
a child will not grow
for so much picking just destroys the roots
and no more blossoms will show
From the depth of the earth the weeds appear
their ugly forms take over
the child that’s hurt shows anger abound
and the offender should run for cover
So slow down now and think about
the damage that you have done
AS A PARENT OF SUCH A
WONDERFUL CHILD
who’s life has just begun
Don’t turn her into a garden of weeds
its time, from where I'm sitting
turn it around with love abound

What goes up

When is see the word FALL
I think about those foolish people who
with pride and prejudice
criticize and attack the under dog


I feel the pain of the downtrodden
The misunderstanding in their lives
The trails and the temptations
and the fear and frustration


The huge hole they dig in their distrust
their disbelief and their hate
causing them to miss so much
to suffer when suffering should not be


When I see the people FALL
I want to rush out and shout out loud

Dreams of Africa

There are days I dream of Africa
and my life as a child there
where running through the wild bush
was a joy beyond compare

Never a thought was given
to the animals who may be close
I loved them all and a big baboon
was one that I loved most

I travelled to the great Zimbabwe ruins
and walked within their walls
Thinking how it must have been
for people who were tall

I've stood in the rainforest's at Victoria Falls
one of the most magnificent sites to see
And the memory still makes me sad
for what has come to be

The fairy at the bottom of my Garden

There's a fairy at the bottom of my garden
she flits in and out of my flowers
I can sit on the step here
and watch her
she stays there for hours and hours

Her wings and so golden and flimsy
Her little body a few inches in size
but her heart is her biggest attraction
and that isn't any surprise

For the fairy at the bottom of my garden
spends her day saving the bees
for they keep on taking the pollen
but dropping it each time they sneeze

I bet you didn't know that the buzzers
had allergies from pollen, sad hey?
the sound that you thought was just buzzing
are bee's that are sneezing away

Earth School in Verse

I am spending more and more time
in Thought
Thinking great thoughts about life
pondering on what I have been taught
dissecting every trouble
every Strife

Understanding comes easier
each moment
That God gave us everything
and more
He said if we believed
we would receive it
No need to keep knocking down
his door

Instead of always asking him
to help us
Accept, he HAS already
and offer thanks
