You’re the magic


You’re the magic

In a snowflake’s kiss


You’re the scent

Of a new rains mist


You’re the radiance

Of a new found day


You’re the inspiration

In all you do and say


You’re the treasure

With a heart of gold


You’re the warmth

When it’s dismally cold


You’re the life

Created by God above


You’re the creation

Whose light shines with love

Time can be a blessing and yet sometimes a curse
Time is the essence of life and all that it’s worth
Time can be short-lived or even drag on for years
Time is the epitome of why we cry so many tears
Time can leave a heart feeling empty and lost
Time is the one thing that comes with a cost
Time can stand still when you’re with the right one
Time is the culprit behind most of what we’ve done
Time can point us to discoveries and precious treasure
Time is a provision whose value cannot be measured
Time can be taken for granted or genuinely admired
Time is one of those things that often leaves us tired
Time can be alluring or misleading in various ways
Time is the one thing we rely on to consume all our days
Time can offer us so much and gives us a reason to live
Time is the perfect gift that we should all want to give

Treasured gifts


I have a lovely treasure box
It’s full of many special notes
And in that special treasure box
Are an abundance of lovely quotes
There are treasured memories of all kinds
Even some that are hand drawn designs
There are also lots of encouraging phrases
And oh so many thoughtful praises
There are special Mother’s Day wishes
An absurd amount of written hugs and kisses
Dozens of scribbly pictures on little bits of paper
Each little piece is something I thoughtfully savor
These simple treasures are made with heartfelt love
Remembrances only a mother is sure to be proud of
Out of all the things I have ever been given
My most favorite gifts are the ones handwritten

Beyond Comprehension


Silky smooth waters drift along
A maneuvering of currents is the waters song
Beneath the murky and sultry waters lie
An abundance of treasure which captivates the eye
Glistening peaks bring about endless pleasure
As gales of windswept waves grow in measure
The water reflects the emotions of the sky
And brings with it glimpses of days gone by
The minds perception is simply an illusion
Because beneath the surface is dire confusion
Just as is true in the daunting days of life
We don’t always recognize the causes of our strife
Underneath there is always something more
Perilous and ugly lurking in the depths of the oceans floor

Unfathomable Treasures


Ever longing for the calming brilliance

Of the radiant ocherous colored rose

Her inviting sunset complexion

Is always a resplendent sight to behold


Eternally dreaming of the heavenly scent

Given off by the easily blemished ivory gardenia

Her delicate petals loathe the slightest touch

And yet she freely shares her intoxicating scent


Perpetually yearning for the consoling assurance

Of the velvety blushing carnation

Her impeccable celebrated pink ruffles

Are exquisitely formed and everlasting


Infinitely languishing the uniqueness

Of the extraordinary snapdragon

Her sophistication brings inspiration

To those who revel in her individualism


Forever grateful for the abounding beauty

Of the earth and the splendor which she reveals

Her mysterious treasures are abundantly scattered

Enjoyed by all who care enough to acknowledge her

You are a rare gift that I treasure more with every passing day

Sometimes I trip and fall over the words that you say

Some days I can hardly believe how close I feel to you

And then other days I am left wondering if what you say is true

I have never felt this way about anyone before

You are the only one that I have ever truly adored

Like an angel looking out for me you came along

And when I think of you I am reminded of my favorite song

The way you’ve treated me has always been with utmost respect

And because of this we’ve been able to completely connect

I will forever cherish the love that you have shown to me

Beloved you are my treasure and always will be

He was lost somewhere in the pages of time
Always searching for what he could not find

The treasure he sought just didn’t exist
Although the ache in his heart would always persist

Years went by and he gave up the fight
Never thinking he would find such a beautiful light

Then one day by random chance
He found his treasure under special circumstance

The sight was brilliant to behold
As precious as the purest of gold

He had waited all of his life to find
The gift that had dwelt in his subconscious mind

Finding the treasure had taken all of his life
Leaving him with undo pain and strife

If only he could have found his prize years ago
Instead of listening to lies and never letting them go

The pain and the suffering he could have foregone
Now haunted him from dusk until dawn

Broken he now had to make a decision
Would he listen to the past or make a revision

His choice could release him from his pain
Or hurt him more than he could ever gain

His choice of forgetting and letting go
Would help him more than he could ever know

Advice by his maker encouraged him to proceed
And by his choices he finally did succeed

A Chance Meeting With Splendor

Photo credit: www.lovethispic.com

Just happening by
She spies a hidden path
Light filtering its way
She is drawn to this place by unknown forces
She takes a chance
Gracing the sunlit path
Finding tranquility and serenity
Waiting for her there
Enraptured by loveliness
She hesitates to take a step further
The trees begin to blush in anticipation of her touch
With trembling hands she anxiously reaches out
She delicately grasps the new-found birth
Holding her breath
She is overcome with pleasure
She is delighted and finds her heavenly treasure
Bringing forth the branches closer
A profound sense of wonder overwhelms her
Fragrant overtures overtake her
She is witness to tiny buds aching to be born
Glorious little blossoms waiting to burst forth
Soon their mesmerizing scent will enrapture maidens
Who will come and dance beneath the fruitful boughs
Merriment and magic will in abundance fill the air
As the wind steadily gathers momentum
Older aging petals begin to leap in blissful measures
Into the cool soft breeze they dash
Floating gently to the ground
Bringing splendor all around
An enchanting world springs alive
With perfect pink petals dancing on the wind
Unaware of their purpose and intent
She finds herself holding onto hope
This path of delight brings healing and light
The trees curtsy and bring life anew
To the gentle soul who just happened by
