She Is Spring

She needs no invitation to come inside
Only a window that is open wide
There need not be an knock at the door
For her to know she’s whom I’ve been waiting for

Bringing with her early morning sun
And more time outside before the day is done
Changing my alarm to a bird that can sing
She is so welcome here, she is Spring!
Eat,pray,love and welcome the Spring season!

For Sheri~~~On The Other Side Of Ugly

During a stroll on an Autumn day
I saw an old,dried out leaf on the ground
The next time I passed that way
This image was what I found

I found it quite extraordinary
Such a beautiful sight to see
And that’s when I thought of Sheri
The angel whose blog so inspires me!

On the other side of ugly there’s beauty
Who shares daily inspiration as if it were her duty
Who couples beautiful images and words
And sends them into the universe to be seen and heard!
Eat,pray,love and get inspired at Sheri’s blog titled “The Other Side Of Ugly”.

The Wonder Of It All

Sometimes my eyes grow weary
Of skies that are grey and eerie
And my ears tire somehow
Of the symphony of the passing snowplow

The dragging of snow chains on the concrete
The numbness feeling of my frozen feet
And I may be quick to complain when I can
But I would never want to miss this Winter wonderland!
Eat,pray,love and be patient with this long,stormy Winter

A Mid Winter’s Night Dream

Keep me warm
In yet another storm
Hold me tight
Through another cold night

Huddle with me in the snow
Promise not to let me go
Burrow me oh so deep
Watch me as I fall asleep
Eat,pray,love and dream of Spring!

I’m Not Going Out In That

You can give me booties,a coat,even a hat
But I’m still not going out in that!
My daily walk becomes such a rush
Schlepping through snow that has turned to slush

Searching for that right spot for me to wee
Because there’s too much ice under my favorite tree
Don’t get me wrong, I love when we are out and about
But I’ll say it again ” I”m not going out in that”!
Eat,pray,love and believe me when I say,this has been a very cold and snowy Winter!

Full Of Bull In NYC

Who wouldn’t wanna visit this city?
So full of things big and pretty
Plenty of things to see and do
24 hrs a day there’s a train running thru

Uptown,downtown and everywhere in between
There’s something to be eaten,heard or seen
And even if your day is totally full
You just have to stop for a pose by the famous Wall Street Bull!
Eat,pray,love and enjoy NYC even in the winter!

Stone Cold Compassion

Do you see me?
When your’e walking down the street
Do you see me?
Would you share a bite to eat?
Or would you just walk by
And turn your head up to the sky
Do you see me?

Do you know me?
Can you call me by my name
Do you know me?
Or do I just look the same
As all the other guys
Cross the street
Or close your eyes
Do you know me?
Eat,pray,love and show compassion for the homeless and hungry in this freezing weather!
Even the statues in New York look cold right now!

Keeping Warm In A Storm

The Winter storms keep coming and going
Freezing temperatures and strong winds blowing
Making it hard to get around the city
At the time of year when it’s oh so pretty

I dared not brave the cold
But brazen was my friend from days of old
Who set out in a Winter’s storm
To capture an image to keep our hearts warm!
Eat,pray,love and make 2014 your most creative year ever!

The First Winter’s Storm

The first Winter’s snow fell in the night
Bringing with it a freeze over the city
Covering it in a blanket of white
Creating a scene oh so pretty

Jack Frost left when the morning’s sun
Came brightly shining through
Causing the snow to come undone
Making it appear like fresh morning dew

Gone is the first Winter storm
Which has come and gone so fast
Filling me with memories so warm
Of Winters from my past!
Eat,pray,love and embrace this wonderful season!
