I wish it would rain in flowers just once,
I'm not a fool, silly or dunce.
But just imagine the joyful outcry,
If beautiful flowers fell from the sky.
Blooms and petals floating in the air,
Falling all around, landing everywhere.
Like bright scented confetti falling down,
Covering every city and town.
Not all the time or every day,
Nor when the sky is dull or grey.
But when it's blue and bright outside,
Think of the smiles that would provide.
My poem was lovingly made into a 'Me to You Bear' video:

i dream of you when the sun falls to her knees
i watch as she sinks,
to raise your eyes into view
how lovely
how brown
filling the open sky with fond stars
that watch as your brown glimmers in their place

i dream of you when the clouds join forces
i watch as thunder roars and lightning blares
your smile into focus
how lovely
how bright
filling my mind with wonderous thoughts
and my heart with shock waves of joy

i dream of you when i close my eyes
to reveal your hand searching for mine
how lovely
how kind
filling the air wth hot bursts of laughter
that find their place in my affection
and settle in

i dream of you
all of the time
how lovely you are
how blessed am i
- thank you
This day you have made! I will rejoice and be glad in it!
Yet again, you gave me a chance. I will rejoice and be grateful of it!
Another day to feel your presence! I look forward to the day ahead!
to God

the first time he held her hand,
he wished for it to last an eternity,
somewhere far away,
a magpie sang a song joyful and lovely.

I knitted a scarf
It took me many years but
it was for a Giraffe
Fun one :)

I've never known this kind of love before
Hand holding in the grocery store
Smiles across the way while you're working
Not getting angry at your snores
Laughing during sex
No pressure
Dreaming of seeing sunrises with you
Staying up to see the sunsets
Not caring about punctuality
(Okay maybe a little)
Wanting to be with you at 3:00 in the afternoon
Drinking coffee staring at the ocean
Thinking any date was the best date
Truly being happy
I've never known this kind of love before
I'm writing a lot about love... I've got good inspiration

I see myself being who I am
And still reaching for what I can be

I see myself  ready
Ready for obstacles,challenges and mountains that will be moved by faith.

I see myself...
Believe in yourself, even when others don’t. Sometimes we have to imagine ourselves where we want to be even if we aren’t there just yet.

I see you now
Unraveling the past in my future

On days when my mind is like a bramble brier
I’ll find sanctuary in a single bloom on your jagged stem

Patterns of attention
Fractals of thought

In the storm, Each wave greater than the last
Until calm and the terror of the doldrums

Turn off the world
Retreat into the sanctuary of bliss

What a perilous gift this is
The power to write and to speak
But what choice we have
These precious days

To snarl and bicker like fractious dogs
Or to make such sweet harmony
That life itself seems too good to waste

The depths of fear and pain and terror
Are as real as the tombs of living souls
Yet one smile on the face of innocence
Is all it takes to enter heavens door

My path is clear
Each day to be lived
Black or white, light or dark, each day presents a choice

I opened a tub of butter
And saw a sunlit ray
I spread it on a slice of bread
And made a summers day
Inspired by buttering toast :)
