Good Morning Mr. Moon

(Prompt word for today;  Rhythmic)


Good morning Mr. Moon

Don’t you know our morn has come

Your beauty gave us light last night

Please sleep now, we want the Sun


The Rhythmic nature of our world

So wondrous and beautiful to view

You give us new each and everyday

From dusk to dawn and all day through


When human troubles get you down

The constant chatter of our time

Take a look at nature’s ease and grace

Let her calm your fretting mind

Glitter or Gloom


Some days our lives can be glitter and gold

Some days only shaded and long

Some days when I open my eyes to the sun

Last days thoughts pour in with the dawn.


Let’s take a deep breath, it’s time to renew

Let’s start our new day with a smile

Let’s all tell ourselves our worries can’t win

We will find our new strength for a while.


Hot coffee, good food, so ready,  refreshed

I shall go on, come what may

Open that door, stepping into the sun

Ah yes,  let’s bring on the day!

A Gift Of Love

Editor’s Note:  I dedicate this poem to Tasha and John who have recently lost their Mother, Bonnie.



Live, laugh, love and dream

These lovely words so true

She always taught us to believe

Feel love our whole life through


Our dreams are full with thoughts of her

We know she’s always near

The flowers in the garden tell

She planted them last year



 The Angels let me come each day

My presence as a warming glow

My whisper is a sweet soft breeze

I am always here you know.



Heaven is a lovely place

So peaceful, warm, so free

I did not want to leave so soon

But the angels beckoned me


My darling family please do know

How close I am to you

Watching, smiling, loving, caring

A breath away it’s true


We will love you forever more

On this you can depend

Things will never be the same for us

Without our Mom and our best friend.

Shall I Resist

Man showing stop gesture

Shall I resist to read the news

Of troubled people throughout this worldappreciate-happiness

Is there just no good out there today

Has happiness left, only sadness unfurled

So many in power predicting such doom

Can they not see a way to end all the strife

So many depend on their knowledge and power

Can they honestly bring us a safe happy life

Yes it’s time to resist sadness, to start anew

Please do tell all those who see no end

We have so much to be thankful for

Keep the light in your eyes and have love for a friend61010-excellentquotations-com-author-unknown

For if we lose faith, only see gloom and doom

Tomorrow will be lost, so please do fight

Look up, see the sky and the beautiful sun

Don’t listen to those who shadow your light

Now is the time  to say I have won

You have life, you have strength, a future to live

Don’t let the world’s troubles become yours today

You alone can change the future;  you have so much to give.

Infinite Beauty At Night


To gaze upon a star filled sky so infinite and bold

The stars abundantly shine for miles

Across the sky, a wonder to behold

So many nights we sit in awe, some nights we never see

The beauty of our mother earth surrounded by the glow

Billions of the planets as they circle you and me

We are a speck, a tiny spot in this wide universe

So awesome when you think of this

 So wondrous yet diverse

As I look up into that sky my thoughts go on and on

Just like the many stars out there

Can I stay here till the dawn.
