All-consuming are these
Murky, long winter evenings
Becoming mood changers,
Impeding hours spent in daylight –
Except there is a means to
Navigate through the blackness…
Candles! Let them emerge from hiding;
Entertain their glow and coziness.
Thank you for stopping by
and stay warm!
Let’s hang the streamers
a rainbow of colors
then dress the tables
and add some flowers
Get the cake ready
for sweet, sweet frosting
and top it with candles
with everyone watching
What a day to remember
of wishes and laughter
yet many want the hands
of time to move faster
It’s the aging of souls
another turning of a page
focusing only on gray
they’d rather disengage
Each day, though, is but a gift
unlike “store bought” with dollars
Tomorrow makes no promise
for any of its followers
Let’s not take for granted
another chance to make a wish
Celebrate another year of life
and be happy we exist

Happy Birthday to my Hubby,
who is very grateful for another year
and his family is very grateful for him!

Once again, I’m behind on reading all of your wonderful blog posts.
I’ve been working on a project, which is consuming most of my time.
I haven’t written any new poems
and actually, I need to get inspired…I can’t re-post forever!
Anyway, the real busy part should be ending soon and I’ll be
visiting you again and trying to catch up a little.
To end your week, I’m sending some “calm” to soothe your “crazy.”
Have a wonderful Friday and weekend!
