Wolf Moon

In and out
the waves,
catching me
in their flow.

In and out
the sun,
melting my heart
as the snow.

In and out
the moon,
changing my mood
with its glow.

Wisdom


Face into the waves
As they buffet
your boat.

Only One Thing Is Needed

Only one thing is needed,
one gift,
one smile,
one thought,
one action.

Let go the cacophony of much,
too much
and choose the better way.

One thing at a time,
one step at a time,
one thought at a time.

Allow time to be present,
engaged
and enjoying
just one thing.

Watching the Back of 2017


There it goes, another year past.
May the pain be forgotten
and the happiness last.
Bye 2017.

My Christmas Present

Reading in the tub while immersed in lavender bubbles, nibbling dried fruit and sipping Perrier is one of my favourite things to do. Hisnibs knows how to keep me happy.  This bath caddy was my Christmas gift this year.  He designed and built it of teak, spruce and cedar.  I can rest my book behind the plexiglass and have everything right there, no need to sit up or reach for anything.  Heaven!

The Old Year Is Fading

The old year is fading like a vintage photograph.
Bright spots highlighted in our memories
and darker ones harder to recall.

Don’t Put It All Back In The Attic


Don’t put it all back in the attic,
that generosity that moves us to give more than we take,
the happy greetings to those we never noticed before,
the desire to be with those we love
even though they are annoying
Don’t put it all away with the baubles and ornaments.
The spirit of Christmas was never meant to last
just one day of the year.
Let’s hang onto it for a few more days at least
and maybe,
just maybe
we will become the world
we all can live in together
in Peace.

Listen For Wisdom


The words of the wise heard in quietness
are better than the shouting of a ruler among fools.
