Happiness

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.

HAPPY THINGS

Misty rain falling on my face,

walking in the country at a slow leisurely pace.

My nephew Tyler saying "I love you Aunt Nee',

the smell of flowers in a nice bouquet.

The breath of a small little pup,

a sip of coffee from the mornings first cup.

The softness of a new borns derriere,

how my head feels after a fresh cut of my hair.

A slurpee brought home by the man of my dreams,

little children playing with their giggles and screams.

With no interruptions getting to read a great book,

sitting under a tree near a babbling brook.

These are things that make me feel good,

here is my list, now make one of your own, you should.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

just a few of the things that make me smile... hope that you have a list of your own....

Music In The Park

Music in the park and it is free,

get down there and listen up,

loads of people and sights to see,

people every where with beer in a cup.



Mirrors nonexistent for some of these women,

you can tell by just what they have on,

young ladies holding hands with old men,

growing out of ears I see a cell phone.



Big butts with pants fitting way to tight,

flabby bellies are every where you look,

with all this beer you bet there will be a fight,

I wish I had an easy chair and good book.



Painted toes walking on the grass,

men with tattoos and a sleeveless vest,

she is feeling no pain and having a blast,

he loves her and thinks she is the best.



Mr. business man shakes his butt,

the beat is making them want to dance,

he is breaking out of his hum-drum rut,

through the crowd young girls prance.



Kids eating pizza and playing with a balloon sword,

moms trying to keep up with her kids and their dad,

he drinks the bottle of wine she wants to hoard,

she hits the joint that the guy next to her had.



There are young people as well as the old,

some in wheel chairs some walk with a cane,

smoking dope in front of cops, that is bold,

drink too much and your head will be in pain.



This will go on from now until summers end,

a cool place to hang out every Thursday night,

so grab your family or maybe your friend,

and listen to the music what a wonderful delight.

NEW BOOTS

Have you ever found shoes that are just you?

I did and they are Dr. Martens....

I love them so much I had 2 pair... boots no shoe.

I have had one pair for 4 years and they are shot.



When I wanted a new pair I could not find the same kind.

I already have a pair of what they call 20 holes.

I call them my bitch boots..they are tall, oh what a find.

They are just too much some say... but hey that is me.



Today just for kicks I went in search of my Doc's.

We went to the Army Surplus shop, low and behold they had them.

I could not be any happier... I am struttin' around like a peacock.

In nothing but my shorty white gown and my brand new black Doc boots.



I love these things... "most women would not be caught in these",

that is what the young man said, well hon, "I am not your usual women".

But he said I was cool..."never have I seen a lady shop with such ease".

But hey I am just me.... don't go for shopping until I drop.



I have much better things to do with my time, poems to write and post.

So that all my friends can read and let me know... is it a winner or what?

So here's to my new found Doc's.... of my town they are the toast.

I am happy and so are my feet..... this is all it takes to make me happy.

tribute to my Dr. Martins....

REVELATION

Your words are like summer thermals,
lifting me steadily beyond the clouds.
My spirit soars with your melodious words!
My breath, takes on your rhythm as we enter onto the dance floor of heaven,
Together...
Skipping cloud to cloud,
Hand in hand,
Word for word.

Even as your song lays to its point of cessation,
No fear encompasses me.
For you bring me always to earth, upon gentle praises...
In Robes of Saffron.

TIME ALONE

The family is out for a short time

I passed on the chance to go.

Work all day, most of it on my feet,

besides I need my time alone.



I use to spend alot of time with just me.

And I have to say I liked it, maybe too much.

Now I have someone around all the time.

That is the hardest part I think.



For those of you that don't know,

I had a stalker last year and moved.

Started a new life, everything strange

getting to know new people, finding a job.



Things that I thought I was ready for

and still know that I made the right choice.

There are times that I wonder..........

well here I am finally all alone.



Awwwwwwwwww this feels so good

music playing with out head phones.

Writting what ever I want to write

don't have to feel guilty at all.



I don't do guilty all that well

as you may have already figured out.

Wow..... this feels really good

I am glad that I have this time.



I hope to kick out some really good work.

My mind can just sort of float

stopping on a topic here

maybe a topic there..... what ever I want to do.


Author's Notes/Comments: 

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWW I AM IN HEAVEN RIGHT NOW........ WHAT A NICE FEELING..... BUT GLAD THAT MY SWEET WILL BE HOME LATER...... LOVE YA BABE

lesson in writing

the objective today,

is what I will say.

with the paper and pen,

it comes out then.

I  never do know,

the end result will show.

these  fruits of my labour,

all my words to  savour.

its fun as im writing,

its better than fighting.

with emotions and such,

it doesnt take much.

just pick up and start,

thoughts straight from the heart.

just a little ditty..

Sincerity

Folder: 
Friendship

When the clouds fade

And the moons shining

May we be looking at it

At perfect timing

For i'll whisper words

And blow u a kiss

You'll recieve it well

And make a wish

So let this moon to be the symbol

Of our friendship and happiness

Maybe that's thanks to her that we met

On this great road of sincerity


Author's Notes/Comments: 

Thanks for helping me write this Yann!
