NaPoWriMo 2015 Day 11

On the 11th day at the 11th hour - I looked at the clock when I started to write and the time was 11:11.......

They say it's magical eleven, eleven
It means someone is nearby from heaven
In that moment peace is found
You can feel a presence all around
So just be still and not afraid
The love you feel never fades

NaPoWriMo 2015 Day 10

 It's National Sibling Day! We have been lucky and truly blessed. It was hard to choose one picture.  These are a few that have taken us through our life's journey.

Don is the oldest,
the serious one

Jim is so laid back
and he's lot's of fun

Barbara's a nurse,
a great mother and wife.

Mary is loving
so caring of life

Then there's the baby
and yes that's me

So lucky we are
my family!

NaPoWriMo 2015 Day 9

The rain sings gently

While I stare at a blank page

It helps not at all

NaPoWriMo 2015 Day 8

A seven - seven poem
seven lines seven words per line....

Is it true diamonds rain on Saturn

And does it really matter to us

Saturn is quite out of our reach

Yet it keeps us up at night

Pondering and thinking can it be real

Wondering and asking the question once again

Is it true diamonds rain on Saturn

NaPoWriMo 2015 Day 7

The last day of another year for me.....

I never see it happen
then it rolls around again
another year is over
or two or five or ten

I really don't feel different
another year's gone by
so many, many things I did
and boy time sure does fly

I'm grateful for all I have
my life, family and friends
tomorrow a new year begins
and now this one ends

NaPoWriMo 2015 Day 6

Easter break is over and my Catholic guilt tells me I should write a make-up poem.  So here is today's poem and a little Haiku.

Awaken the woods, the flowers the trees
The birds are coming home
Bring back the sunlight and longer days
The air is getting warm

I sing in the morning and dance in the night
My smile lasts all day
I say to the Winter - it's time you leave
I am Spring - get out of my way

Rest easy tonight
Know you've done your best today
A new day awaits

NaPoWriMo 2015 Day 5

I love Easter for many reasons.  It's all about new beginnings and it's perfect at the start of Spring.
I spent my day with family and just tried to be in the moment.

So no work and no emails and no poem today!

I wish you and your family a Happy Easter!
