Have You Seen Me Lately?

I apologize for not being as active on my blog
Lately I find myself in a bit of a fog
I have to wonder if there is anything worse
Than finding myself as an unemployed nurse

Lost my job not due to any errors or slack
But while on the job I hurt my shoulder and back
Pain makes it hard to lift or bend
Not sure if I can hold my camera steady ever again

It’s getting harder and harder to sleep
The pile of bills gets more deep
Poetic words don’t easily flow
How long will the grief last, I just don’t know
Eat,pray,love and thanks for your understanding and support!

She Is So Much More….

She is so much more
Than a thrift store find
She takes me back to years before
And fills me with memories of the sweetest kind

Memories of when I was young
And oh so small
The house where my life had begun
Pictures of friends with big eyes on my bedroom wall

She is so much more
Than a yard sale steal
A treasure I will always adore
For the way she makes me feel
Eat,pray,love and surround yourself with things that make you feel good!

Keeping Your Chin Up

Grey skies
Sad eyes
Hopelessness takes it’s toll
It becomes a battle just to stroll

It becomes a challenge
If I really even care
And then I look down
And see her there

My best friend,companion
My Japanese Chin, my pup
It’s like she’s looking back at me
Saying “Keep your chin up”!
Eat,pray,love and let support come from all forms of nature!

It’s The Time Of The Season

Beautiful colors of pink,gold and green
Like a vintage postcard’s scene
Making this the reason
Autumn is my favorite season

A soft breeze blows
Leaves cover the ground
And oh how my shoes know
That crunching sound!
Eat,pray,love and enjoy strolling in Autumn!

The Autumn Berries

Long gone are the sweet,red summer’s cherries
Replaced by the autumn’s short lived berries
That dangle on limbs already almost bare
Like prisms on a fine,crystal chandelier

Are they sweet or are they sour?
We may never really know
For they are not here for us to devour
But to admire and wonder at how they grow!
Eat,pray,love and enjoy the change of season!

Wonders Of The Waterfall

I stood before the waterfall
In search of peace and serenity
And though her power made me feel so small
In my heart and soul the essence was of plenty

I took a deep breath in and closed my eyes
And listened as the water created a beautiful tone
Soon I began to realize
I wasn’t there alone!
Eat,pray,love and take a close look at the photo!

Springing Back

Looking back to when the cherries were in bloom
And how they seemed to fade away too soon
Of the beautiful songs I heard
From the choirs of mockingbirds

It seems like just yesterday
I was strolling on a perfect Spring day
Looking back on a photo I happened to find
I close my eyes and I go back there in my mind!
Eat,pray,love and let the memories of your old photos take you away!

Falling In Love

As Summer comes to an end
I stop to welcome a dear,old friend
The most colorful season of all
Are the green,red,and gold leaves of fall

I adore the way they line the street
And the crunching sound they make beneath my feet
So when it comes to strolling,you need no reason
Just go outside and enjoy the beauty of the season!
Eat,pray,love and enjoy everyday of this colorful season!

The Last Blooms

Awaiting Fall I slow down my stride
I stop before these flowers sitting side by side
As they quench their thirst on the morning dew
Their beauty gives such a beautiful view

Before Mother Nature calls
Before the last petal falls
And before the daylight loses some of her hours
Slowly I stroll enjoying the last of the season’s flowers!
Eat,pray,love and enjoy the last treasures of the season!

Never Forget

My emotions are far from small
As I stand before the Remembrance Wall
To honor those who were oh so brave
Who went out that morning seeking lives to save

And for all who were lost that day
I take a moment to stop and pray
I feel a sense of loss and grief for people I have never even met
And I whisper to them “We will never forget”
Eat,pray,love and never forget!
