Make a Wish

Dandelion Puff in Forest

In the forest green

Silky circle of lace is seen

Picking it I glean

A feeling that’s so serene

Suddenly I’m queen

Filled with wishes umpteen

A magical scene

Filled will sunshine sheen

Parachuting seeds careen

Past-Present-Future

Bridge
Life

Is short

Waste not.

Time is precious

Record memories.

Capture each moment

But dont dwell there, move on.

Fixate your mind on the future.

Wake every morning and proclaim: 

“The Past has no Present in my Future”

Etheree 

Thanks to my daughter, Laura, for the last line which inspired me to write this poem.

Good Deeds

Daisy, flower, hand
Taking time to show you care

Offering up a sincere prayer, 

Meeting a strangers need,

Doing a small kindly deed,

Sometimes means a whole lot more

Than lots of money given to the poor

Do something small for the least 

Let God multiply it into a feast
