Send Me

rosary tatoo

Send me your

pain, despair

negativity and anguish

your loneliness, tears

diseases and sadness

And I will pray

for comfort, courage

positivity and light heartedness

companions, smiles

good health and happiness

So that HIS light will bathe you

with the hope for better tomorrows

HIS strength lift you and your heart

up in prayer for others who ache for

HIS pure love and courage too

Sharing over at Kate’s blog.  Happy Saturday everyone.

WeLcOmE

welcome door

The clock strikes midnight

and with or without fanfare

we brace for the beginning of a new year

The gift of opportunity

to begin again

smarter from the lessons learned

stronger from the pain experienced

joyful

or perhaps not

Don’t waste your time with regret

or resolutions you have no intention on keeping

embrace the days and nights to come with the grace

that you are love

and in HIS eyes

Enough

Blessings for the year ahead.  WeLcOmE  it with open arms.

I Adore Christmas

Is Christmas

A blackened sky with a star so bright

It led three wise men all through the night

To witness the miraculous birth of a child

A gift to us all

Our Lord Jesus Christ

Or is it

Twinkling lights on trees so grand

A blanket of snow to cover the land

Sleigh bells ringing out far in the night

With a jolly old spirit, whose just taken flight

Delivering gifts far and near

Making the child in us happy, and spreading good cheer

Or can it be

A time for family and friends to gather

To celebrate, make memories and to remember

Those we have lost,  be grateful for times past

Capture heartfelt moments and to make them last

Can you see?  It can be all three!!!

Whatever your reason

For celebrating the season

Spread the magic, hope and joy it brings

To those you love and adore

Merry Christmas/Joyeux Noel

Sharing today on FMF over at Kate’s place.  Write for five minutes not worrying if it’s right.   Hope you “adore” your celebrations.

Dear

We lead with you

and follow with the names of those

we love, pour our secrets into diaries after you

begin our letters to legends, or fabled visitors with you

 

We formally address those we don’t know

and speak to someone named “John” when we

fall out of love

 

We call out to you to make sure

you are near, while climbing over life’s

obstacles pleading for you

 

We look for you in the dark,  stay

surprised by you.  Witness happiness

with you, sadness too

 

We preface you with two letter words

Championing the good displayed by people

Scrutinizing the horror displayed by people

 

We beg for mercy with you

Pray to the divine with you

Begin with

End with

Dear

 

Sharing this one on FMF over at Kate’s blog.  It’s Saturday … oh “dear”.

 

 

Still

stillness

 

I entered the room

your shrinking body, dwarfed by the bed

clinically white save but for your mauve shawl

which played with the silver of your hair

and the light of day streaming in from the window

You spied one eye open

and held your hand out for mine

Cold hands, warm hearts

We talked about you

your dreams and the visitors

from the past and the present

You knew and so did I that

this was our time, albeit limited

Life is an accumulation

of connected moments

I was grateful for the connection

felt blessed to bear witness

we sat holding hands

while the light faded

you did too

never your memory though

I still miss you

 

So today is Friday.  Link up at Kate’s blog and write for five minutes not worrying if it is right.  Be “still”.

Turn

turning the corner

 

Turning means a change

be it a new chapter

a leaf

a corner

green

bright red

blue

softly

loudly

kicking and screaming

It allows for growth

and an opportunity to learn

I love to turn

especially when twirling

with my face towards heaven

showing HIM

I’m finding my way home

 

Try your hand at writing for five minutes over at Kate’s blog.  I know it’s Monday, and I’m a little late.  I “turned” up though.  Give it a go.

 

Leave

          What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone

           monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.

                                                                                           Pericles                    

 

telephone

I will be the gentle breeze

the rustling of the leaves

in the darkest of nights

I will be brightest of stars

and the guide when you are lost

I will be listening for you

when you call out to me

so,

Leave a message at the sound of the tone

and I will get back to you as soon as I can

In the meantime

I will be waiting

your arrival

“Leave” is the word prompt today over at Kate’s blog.  Write for five minutes without worrying if it’s right.   Have a great weekend everyone!!
