Now is a quiet time

A place for verse

A space for rhyme.

What better way

In heart and mind

To end the day.

The day is ended

Work is done

Wrongs are mended.

The evening sky

In star filled dark

Asks not why

We search for love

‘neath silver moon

And stars above.

In this blissful peace

We find solace

(and) all else will cease.

The spirit inside

Finds its release

And no longer hides.

Words flow easily

The dream begins

And the page is filled.

~~ Holiday Greetings ~~   2 comments

**************************************************

I know this may be a day or two early, but I thought I’d better do it now rather than forget about it later.  This is a copy of something I posted a few years ago.  Yeah, I’m being lazy tonight, but the sentiment is real, and the message is the same……..

Thanks to each and every one of you who has patiently read and followed

my poor attempts at writing, humor, and art, for your friendship, commeraderie,

and even for your criticism at times (you know who you are) for you have

all helped me to grow as a person.  Bless you and your families and keep them

safe as we start into this holiday.

***************************************

Trailing stardust in my wake

I wander boundless celestial galaxies

The only possessions I take

Are my heart…, and my soul

My heart, to give emotion to the wonders I see

My soul, to be filled with the joy and beauty that I find

Out beyond Venus, and beyond Mars

On a galactic walk among the stars

I find the peace I seek

Then come home.

You can’t kiss an Irish girl unexpectedly.

You can only kiss her sooner than she thought you would…

***********************************************************************************************

…….now for a toast or two for the day, yerself, an’ perchance yer sweetheart….

I have known many,
and liked not a few,
but loved only one
and this toast is to you.

*****

May you have the hindsight to know where you’ve been,
The foresight to know where you are going,
And the insight to know when you have gone too far.

Slainte !!!

‘Tis time now for PapaBear’s traditional toast to all o’ me Irish friends out there…

…and wouldn’t ye all be Irish on St Paddy’s Day, wouldn’t y’ now ???

************

***********

May you always have

the sun on your face

And a dry path to walk.

May the stars fill your eyes

And the moon light

The way to your door

May you know

Peace in your dreams

And love in your heart

+ Sail wth Me +   4 comments

*************************************************************

Born in a land that is known as “free”

A land not what it seems to be

A land few can appreciate

Because of prejudice and hate

thAA6VQ19P

Come away and sail with me

To a land beyond an ancient sea

A place beyond the bright sunrise

Into a place called paradise.

+

Running past islands both starboard and lee

Passing beautiful islands that do their part

In opening the journey’s mystery

That each will hold close to heart

images[1]

Stop at one island and spend the time

To learn its verse and to know its rhyme

Then it’s on to another beach

To understand what it has to teach

+

Then up ahead, across the bow

A brilliant shoreline fills the eyes

The warm bright sun is setting now

Soft moonlight, stars rise in the skies

ef562e5ab30f579f510026bd38944c5d[1]

‘Tis on this shore that all will find

The means to ease and calm the mind

To find a happy world made of

The wondrous joy of peace and love.

*****************************************************

Take the journey and find your peace

Good Night Everybody !

~ Homecoming ~   2 comments

_full_moon_over_water[1]

Silvery moonlight wrapped itself around everything

and covered every surface.  A bright, full moon smiled

down on everything below her and painted the world

in a subliminal peace.  Like playful pixies, stars shyly

peeked from behind their heavenly blanket, then more

boldly became the gemstones of the sky.  A soft breeze

played a rhapsody in the palm fronds and the fragrance

of a thousand blossoms rose from all around.  The near

calm water at the moonlit beach shimmered like a beacon

welcoming me forward to where the sand met the surf.

Ah, finally, I was home !!!
