Time Clock (tanka)*

waves breaking on shore~

constant as each day moves on~

much like ones own life~

time moves perpetually~

forward into earth our end

*Note: what can I say, life is short and to be lived to its fullest. In many ways we live it solitarily, for our inner thoughts are ours alone. Do you have an opinion? My music taste is quite eclectic, you might have noticed in past posts. I like options πŸ™‚. I very much like Queen and this song works, enjoy! Always 🌎✌🏻❀️

Provençal Romantic *

bluebirds flew

wings fluttered

lightly against her

bare skin

like His touch

they brought

memories of

His Words

she’d read the words

they whispered softly for her

she’d watch them grow

they beautifully bloomed for her

she’d sense their meaning

they were intoxicating for her

she bowed her head

too read them


now she waits

to fully

*Note I chose Requiem for a Dream, this version is simply beautifully enchanting. πŸ’˜ I love that the instruments they are playing are old world and new world. Always 🌎✌🏻❀️

Alpha *




exuded strength,

each one

bayed in


glowing light,











in the


no longer,

*Note: Luna is their Alpha 🐺 and She is a Wild Woman, enjoy the song by Sleep Machine (look them up on YouTube I’ve grown fond of their music).

If you have a dog(s) they will pick a person in the family to be their Alpha, meaning they will always obey that persons command more readily than anyone else’s. My inquiring mind would like to know what is it that makes them choose that person. If you have an idea why, let me know. I also have two cats and they definitely don’t answer to no one! πŸ˜‚

Tea for Two (tanka)*

made for each other~

design threw them together~

a kiss seals their love~

now each day fills them with warmth~

hoping their bond never breaks

A Thank You

In the words of T. S. Eliot

For last year’s words belong to last year’s language

And next year’s words await another voice.

And to make an end is to make a beginning.”

And so my fellow bloggers, writers, poets, we begin. In doing so I’d like to thank you for taking the time to read my poetic thoughts and time to comment. It was always my desire to start a blog for my writing and some of my photos. This past year I finally fulfilled that desire for better or worse. Much love to you all.

I look forward to sharing more and too reading and seeing more of your informative and creative works. Wishing you all the best for this year! The song is for all of you. πŸ˜ŠπŸ’—

Always 🌎✌🏻❀️🎢


He Is Delivered (tanka)*

~Bright star leads the way

~beneath a small manger stands~

~awaiting child’s birth~

~family friends beasts surround~

~the Messiah has arrived

*Note: Below is a link to Hendal’s Messiah preformed by London’s philharmonic Orchestra. No matter your faith the music is beautiful. The church I attend is named Church of the Immaculate Conception it is beautiful in it’s simplicity

May the Spirit of this holiday season be held in your hearts daily.

Always 🌎✌🏻❀️
