Ain’t Gonna

  You ain’t gonna take it away. You ain’t gonna take it away. Not what’s nestled in my heart. Time allows fluctuations in all our situations. Daily do-s. Yes, we have those now. Consider time’s actions— a swing, a sway, a tilt, a sting, a twist, a turn, a change, a rearrange. A halt, a […]

Remembering You (The Peaceful Pub)

Remembering You Dedicated to The Peaceful Pub How do I love you? I can’t count the ways. I can’t count times day or night you’ve been there, through the years season after season, through porch-light hours welcoming the writer-in-me. You’ve been there all along for so long catching my rhymes, herding my verses line by […]

Self-Aware

Indeed, I am swamped with balancing eLearning with my precious 2nd graders and their families at this unprecedented time in our history. However, because it’s National Poetry Month, I felt a nudge to post at our Pub today, April 1st, the beginning of a month celebrating poems and poets. I quickly skimmed old files and […]

While Sun Streams Through

Light from the window is a hug from heaven Warmth from the sun my needed hug Hush from the rush Break from the work another gift straight from heavenly realms Refreshing times frame no race No race defines restoration Grateful for quiet times Grateful for Our Maker’s light Thankful for silence heard When the sun […]
