The Solstice of the Winter

Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice

Tis the solstice of the winter
When the days are dark and long;
The light is dim and the air is cold
The north wind blows a lonely song.

The sun hangs low in the distant sky
Snow blankets the ground of frost;
Ice forms on top of the lakes and ponds
As the warmth from the sun feels lost.

Bring on the winter months with glee
This is the season that keeps us chilly;
Sip a hot drink or a warm bowl of soup
Do something that makes you feel silly.

Trust the daylight will increase again
In the upcoming months of the New Year;
Fill your spirit with joy and laughter
Celebrate this winter solstice with cheer.

Accept the Path You have Taken

Accept the Path You have Taken

Accept the Path You have Taken


Accept the path you have taken
For that is the road you have chosen;
The path may not be perfect
Accept that it may stir some emotion.

Accept the moment that is given
For that is all you can control;
The moment may not be as you expected
Accept it down deep in your soul.

Accept the body you live in
For that is what you have molded;
The look may not be what quite you wanted
Accept that your wonderful life has unfolded.

Accept all that has been given to you
For this is what you have unconsciously asked for;
Be thankful for all that has come your way
Accept these gifts as they should not be ignored.

The Portrait of a Human

A Portrait of a Human

A Portrait of a Human


A portrait of a human
The expression on his face;
Does it really mater
What ancestry of the race.

The beauty in this portrait
Provides comfort from his soul;
The wisdom he has gained
From the years of stories untold.

Peace has descended upon this man
As he ages with amazing peace;
Life is a wonder of miracles
That never seems to cease.

We gain wisdom from his smile
And comfort from his grace;
Learn from our ancestors
What else can we embrace?

Spring Beauty

Spring Beauty

Spring Beauty

These daffodils pop up from the earth
To welcome the warmth of the sun;
Tis an early sign from nature
That warmer days are yet to come.

Bright yellow blossoms greet the eye
Upon their long sturdy green stems;
Flowering bulbs of the Spring season
Oh how we always welcome them.

Cut a few to bring indoors and admire
What a cheerful sight to see;
Yellow glowing colors stand out
Providing nature’s beauty to thee.

A cheerful message these flowers send
That this day is as precious as the next;
A moment of time not to go unnoticed
For life is not meant to be so complex.

Dawn of the Day

Dawn of the Day

Dawn of the Day

The dawn begins this day
Day for I know not what lies ahead
Ahead is the moment to be enjoyed
Enjoyed while time passes on
On this day I make a promise
Promise to cherish each minute
Minute to give thanks for this life
Life is a gift so make it count
Count not the minutes of the day
But all the blessings that have come my way.

Cherish This Moment

Cherish This Moment

Cherish This Moment

Cherish this moment
Right here right now;
It fades away in the distance
As time decides to allow.

Hang on to the joy it brings
Store away the thoughts of the day;
Of the good times you had
No doubt you got to play.

Places that bring happiness
People we love to be near;
The moment is here and gone
Time passes quickly on to the next year.

Dreams replay the moments
Memories fill the heart with love;
Cherish this moment of the day
What else is there to think of.

Follow the Flow

Follow the Flow

Follow the Flow

Flow like the water
That leads you to your dream;
Follow the current
That winds around the stream.

Life is a precious gift
So grateful to be here;
Follow the voice
That is whispering in your ear.

Trust that around the bend
There is a place for you;
Follow the raging rapids
That float towards your view.

In the distance not yet reached
Your destiny draws near;
Follow the bank of the stream
That is leading you this year.
