Happiness

Candle

A candle in a distant window

Flickers and smiles at me

I've hours before tomorrow

And nowhere that I'm to be

Rare moments in the darkness

Alone with the warm spring night

Tasting the distant sweetness

Of a strangers candle light

I choose a comfortable resting place

Lay my head against a tree

I feel her dim glow kiss my face

For there's nowhere I need to be

Sunshiny Days

Travelling north my friend

Warm days never end

Where I can be

Like a bird, so free.

Tropical breeze

No need to freeze

This heart of mine

In the warm sunshine.

You will see me soar

As my feelings thaw

I reach the highest highs

AND my body sighs....

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Just some pleasant thoughts ...seems to finish a little abruptly though.

Hanging Laundry

I sit behind my fence beneath the

summer sun

Warmed, but not by the sun's rays

Every Monday I watch the flowers

and garden lizards run

I don't care for them on other days

The neighbor's door opens

She doesn't know I'm here

She steps out to hang the laundry

And doesn't know I hear

Greater than a symphony

Gentler than a guitar strums

The lady means the world to me

With the happy way she hums

"Joy"

by Jeph Johnson

 

Exhilaration from happiness tries
But fails because it's trapped in time
Only joy can guarantee
A final expression of ecstasy

BIG SCREEN

Well.... when I came home today

in the spot where my monitor was,

there sat this big thing,

like a TV screen.



I was so overwhelmed

did not know what to say.

I have a TV to the left of me

a TV to the right

and in the middle it is just me....



yeap.... me....



and this huge monitor.....



I feel just like I could crawl up inside this thing.....





I love it.... what a nice partner I have....



wanted to have it all set up and ready to go when I came home.



This is my way of saying..... thank you hon... it was an awfully wonderful gift.....



I love you....

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Thank you sweet heart for this wonderful gift.... it means the world to me that you would think of me.... I love you...

Winters Memories

I Look Out In The Cool, Crisp Air,

Snow Is Falling Everywhere.

It Starts To Cover As It Falls,

Some Places Drifts, As High As Walls.



After The Storm It Is So Calm,

I Put Some Snow Onto My Palm.

It Is So Cold And Oh So Clean,

I Think Back When I Was A Teen.



I Loved The Snow, I Loved The Fun,

We Frolicked Under Cool, Bright Sun.

We Used To Slide, We Used To Play,

Were Never Bored In Any Way.



Had Snowball Fights & Had Our Forts,

We Built Them All Of Many Sorts.

Some Were Long & Some Were High,

I Think Back To These Days & Sigh.



Oh, To Be A Kid Once More,

Get Home From School & Out The Door.

I'd Take My Hockey Stick & Net,

A Game For Sure We'd Have, I Bet.



Now I'm Back To Present Time,

And Thinking Of A Word To Rhyme.

I'm Looking Out My Window Here,

It's Snowing & I Want To Cheer.

CABIN BY THE RIVER

I know a sweet little place to go for a real good time.

Walk if you want to but you will be covered in dirt and grime.

You really need a four wheel drive to get to the right spot.

It is such a quite out of the way place you'll like it alot.



You can listen to the water as it splashs under the docks.

You can soak up all the sun you want when you lay out on the rocks.

I love this place it helps me when I need to spend time alone.

It is wonderful and peaceful, no other place have I ever known.



The cabin by the river is just the place that is the best.

I like to sit near the water when I am on a type of vision quest.

So should you ever find yourself looking for some where to just get away.

Take some time for just this trip, I promise, your secrets it will never betray.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

another in the personal contest with TIM...... thanks for the title...

TAKING PLACE

AS ANOTHER DAY APPROACHES

AND BRINGS A NEW DAY,

THE BUTTERFLIES IN SILENT

COME OUT, TO KISS AGAIN YOUR FACE.



DANCING IN THE LIGHTS,

AROUND SHADOWS TAKING THEIR PLACE,

THEY WHISPER SOFTLY IN YOUR EARS,

AND THEN, THEY KISS YOUR LIPS.



ARRIVING ON TIME, YOU COME TO ME,

WITH YOUR SHINING FACE,

AND YOUR HAPPY GRIN,

AND YOU SPREAD YOUR WARMTH

ALL AROUND ME, LIKE YOU ALWAYS DO.



IN YOUR CARE-FREE FASHION

OF SUDDEN YOU GO,

AND DANCING THE SHADOWS,GO

TAKING YOUR PLACE.

Email

Well here i sit looking through my email.

And today i seem to have so many things,

I have friends that send me things with our fail.

I really like all that my email brings.



I always seem to have so many messages,

There are things of news and offers for free,

Sometimes people leave me some cool passages,

Just so many things here for me to see.



From all over the world i have many friends.

And they send me stuff of all kinds.

Some of what i forward on and some it just depends,

For some are sent by friends with twisted minds.



I am really glad that i have this way to communicate.

For with out it i think that i might be lost.

The best thing is, it's like opening a gate.

To talk with friends and travel at no cost.



So you see we all have the world at our finger tips.

You don't ever have to leave the safety of your home.

In my email i even get short flim clips.

I get in this little mail box and i just roam.



I tell you i just love the box that is marked "IN".

Words of humor, love and encouragement are what i find.

So see here is a place that i can only win.

So i log on, start reading and slowly i unwind.
