Mom Thoughts

Welcome Bear lawn statue

How fast the toilet paper goes

And the shampoo too

Food in the fridge

vanishes

Yet laundry and trash pile up

The house is filled with people

Chattering, moving,

Echoing life

To rooms once empty and silent

Peace is now hard to find

Among so many different

Personalities

Cupboards are looking bare

As is my bank balance

But my heart is happy

The kids are home again

Free Verse

(Inspired by my daughter whose four grown children are all living at home with her and my son-in-law again for awhile)

Thanksgiving

Fall Oak Leaf

Thank you God

For the trees that wave

Good Morning

To me

As I gaze in wonder

At he whose wings beat wildly

While he drinks nectar

In the rain

The breeze brings

a brown leaf to greet me

Upon the window pane

He stops briefly

As if to say

We are both aged

yet

let’s keep moving, seeking,

Another day of life

As if on cue

future minded squirrel

scurries past

gathering acorns

supplied by the waving trees

Ah, so much life surrounds me!

I give thanks

For all that be

and for eyes that see

thru the window to the world

Just outside my door

Where all God’s creation breathes

And lives

And encourages me

To do the same.

Perplexity

Helping hand

Just

Do not

Understand it!

I am a helper,

I love to help,

But why doesn’t everyone?

Why are some selfish,

Unwilling to give a helping hand?

I just don’t understand it at all!

They are missing out on so very much.

Squirrel’s Storehouse

Backyard Planter

Squirrel scampering

Hiding acorns ‘neath

The slumbering vine

Truckload of treasures

Delivers in Winter

Syllabic Verse

🍁The pesky squirrel is back and digging in my plants burying his treasures. He’s cute but I don’t like the fact that he digs in my plants to store his food for winter. 🍂😩

Fragile

Box makes Fragile

Boxes

All shapes

And all sizes

Like people

They hold things inside

Secrets, treasures, dreams

Or maybe unwanted things like

Bitterness, unforgiveness

Handle all boxes with care because

They can be damaged inside and out
