~ Prelude to a Valentine ~   1 comment

(Just some old words, crying for some music to turn them into a song)


Just an old familiar song I hear
Keeps wanderin’ back to me
Brings me back to times so dear
When you were here with me
It’s just a melody
That brings back memories
A soft and tender tune
Beneath the stars and moon
Along a lonely avenue
With nothing there to see
Notes ring out so clear and true
This haunting melody

It’s just a melody
That brings back memories
A soft and tender tune
Beneath the stars and moon
Don’t think that I’ll get over you
It’s plain for me to see
I’m still held by a love that’s true
A haunting melody.
It’s just a melody
That brings back memories
A soft and tender tune
Beneath the stars and moon
You come into my arms again
Your bright eyes look at me
Seems you heard that same refrain
That haunting melody.


It’s just a melody
That brings back memories
A soft and tender tune
Beneath the stars and moon

~~ HAPPY NEW YEAR ~~   2 comments

As we open the Book of Years to 2018.., to a new page.., to a new chapter…




May all of your roads be downhill

May your blessings be as many as the stars in the heavens

May you always have enough

May your heart always be too full of love for troubles to enter, 

May your soul be too full of peace to harbor bitterness or hate

…And may the sun always shine on your dreams.


These are my wishes for you for this New Year…, and forever, my friends

May they all come true. 


Peace and Love

~ Stars ~   1 comment


The night is crystal clear

And the slivered moon is bright.

Stars wink at me

From their place in the heavens tonight.

I see your reflection

In their eyes

~ A Celestial Stroll ~   4 comments



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.




Tonight   2 comments



The night was calm and quiet

Except for an occasional cricket, or cicada

The evening sky was crystal clear

Venus stood high in the heavens

Peering at the sliver of a pale moon

Slowly bringing itself above the horizon

She seemed to smirk at the sliver of a crescent

As if to say…, “Is that all you’ve got ???

I smiled as I watched the other stars appear

One by one enjoying the celestial contest.

Needless to say, tonight was a beautiful night.

~~ Na Feile Padraig!’ ~~   3 comments


na Feile Padraig!’

A Happy St Patrick’s Day t’  Y’all !!!



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


celt 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


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


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


‘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 !
