when written,

they seem so far away –

though they come from so very close

when spoken,

they feel like razor blades –

slicing away my soul

in a metaphor,

they can be interpreted –

in any given way


ad verbum,

they are morose and real –

the truth of which i breathe each day

ideas abound

looking far…. in the distance

revelations shine





feet up
staring out of a dorm window
… thinking …

a cacophony of sounds

creation awaits

My Special Guest Poet: Poetry by Pamela

Today is a fresh start
Possibilities abound
The mirror reflects my mood
Shining light on all I’ve found
Yesterday is behind me
Tomorrow is just a dream
Today is all I have to fill
With laughter and sunbeams
If clouds move overhead,
I will remember the blue skies
I will forget all the lows
And concentrate on the highs
Yes, today is a fresh start
Life begins anew
And when the day is over,
I will know I did all I could do.
Pamela Beckford

A few words – I am very proud to present Pamela Beckford as my First Special Guest Poet.   I can remember the first poem she posted on her blog ‘Poetry By Pamela’, which she began this past August.  Since this time, it has been a true pleasure to watch her writing evolve and grow into poetry which stretches the boundaries of many different thoughts and emotions.  Please join me in supporting this lovely and talented poet, with whom I am proud to call my friend.

Thank You Pamela.

To Imagine

Good afternoon bloggerbuds-

A few months back, I was gifted The Imagination Award from one of my favorite writers –

Richard of

“The Imagine Award” is an award that was created by Jenn Mulherin (who is the writer of the blog “My Fibrotastic Life!”) in October of 2013. This award was made in order to recognize the bloggers who express their passion and dedication towards their blogs through their creativity.

The Imagine Award

The criterium for The Imagine Award is as follows:

1. Copy and paste The Imagine Award into your post.
2. Thank the blogger who nominated you and link their blog page to your post.
3. List 3-5 things about the nominator’s blog that you like (which you think are very creative).
4. Nominate 5 other bloggers/blogs which you think display a fantastic use of creativity and imagination.
5. Notify your nominees.
6. Display The Imagine Award to your blog’s award page.

I am extremely honored to have been given this special award from such a talented writer.  Richard possesses an incredible ability to mold words into the most beautiful pieces of poetry.  Sometimes his poetry goes beyond that of the written word – he can bring to life a vision, a song, a dream, a picture, an experience.  His elegance as a writer is astounding and he brings a level of sophistication to WordPress.  I was enticed by his talents from the very first time I laid eyes on his blog.  I was hooked then and continue to be inspired by his creative imagination – now.

There are so many writers in the blogosphere who write with a passion and a level of imagination that never ceases to amaze me.  Whether they are writing a piece of poetry or a thought about something in life, I am constantly being inspired – not just as a writer, but also as a person.  Here they are…….

1.  My friend Dom at

2.  My friend Skye at

3.  My friend Hasty at

4.  My friend Michelle Marie at

5.  My friend Patty at

The above is the tippy, tippy top of my list – it can go on and on and on……so please, visit these incredibly imaginative and beautiful souls.  You will be inspired, I promise.

Until we meet again, I wish all of you

Happy Reading, Happy Writing and Happy Day

the words i write


words on a page

come to life in my mind

formulated by experiences –

little fragments in time




it’s the feelings and emotions

sustained by the heart

which bring the ‘essence’ –

their soul to life.

I would like to end this post by following the criteria of The Best Moment Award –

I have experienced so many wonderful moments.  Yes, there are the biggies such as every moment with my children, dancing on stage, finishing an Ironman, graduating college, …….. BUT the best moments are the ones which can be the smallest – a smile from someone running past me on the trail, watching the birds nosh from the bird feeder, having a cake bake just right, to name just a few…  Yes, all silly things, but they add up.  At the end of the day they contribute to a feeling of hope.  I would also like to say that my time spent on WordPress has been filled with so many ‘best moments’.  The feeling of accomplishment when a piece is complete and the publish icon is clicked.  Each comment that is made and reading the work of writers who have become my friends and finding new writers to enjoy and appreciate.  All wonderful ‘best moments’!

To the award nominees, please know that you are under no obligation to accept these awards.  Some have specific criterium, and if you would like to get this information, please drop me a line – I will send it right over.  The badges are yours to copy and to place on your own blogs.  If I have given an award to someone who does not accept awards, I understand and I apologize for not getting the memo:)  Let me know, and it will be duly noted. I have stated this before – I enjoy giving awards, because it is a way for me to show my appreciation for what you do and to share your blog with others who may not have found you – yet.

So, this concludes the mother of all thank you awards post.  I would like to end with one more BIG THANK YOU to say PLEASE keep doing what you do because you are all awesome!

Till the next time we meet – Happy Reading, Happy Writing, Happy Day!

clouds or …


I look up and see fluff

floating around in the sky

such as

sweet marshmallow topping

on chocolate creme pie.


there are soft pillows of cotton

to embrace my dreams


a poofy down duvet

to cozy up my sleep.


in the morning i see a frothy dollop

of au lait on my cafe


swatting a brain full of gossamers – – – – –

keep them from clouding my day.


as the hours drift along

i look up and see more –

lots of creatures, faces

and yummy treats galore.


did i mention the mountains

snow-capped in whipped cream


many balls of cotton candy

breezing about –

i have seen?


oh yes, they are all there

and you can see them, too –


open your eyes


quite simply

– – – –

enjoy the view.




i see a big grin!


pillows – lots of pillows


a claw or a Romulan ship*   (can you see the moon)

pinks and blues light up the sky

as the sun slowly sets


chorales of feathered beings

are quietly

being tucked away in their nests.


life all around begins to retreat –

it’s the end of another day.

one by one bodies set off to sleep


dreams come out to play.


the visions which creep out to taunt one’s mind

in the middle of the night,

can be darkness rising up from hell –

its mission –

to torture

with all of its might.



not all illusions floating about

derive from one’s tainted soul.

there are moments emblazoned

with beauty so serene


lumina of light shining bright as gold.


before one is aware, the night has passed –

the sun is about to rise.

another day is dawning –

bodies begin moving


the birds
