Grieving

Chaos acrylic painting

Peace is lost, chaos reigns,

As masked voices protest

“We cannot breathe”.

Colors war with one another,

All seeking their rights,

As Covid looms, bringing death.

“Be gone from us!”

We cry out in desperation

Grieving for what used to be.

Slow Down and Breathe

Mirrors reflecting shoppers in a shopping mall

Gasp Gasp Puff Puff

Life’s not made of this kind of stuff

Run Run Race Race

Life’s better when you slow your pace

Pant Pant Rant Rant

Stop to smell the flowers by the garden gate

Busy Busy Dizzy Dizzy

Life’s too precious to spend in a tizzy

Just like the movies you watch and the food you eat,

life does have an end time, an expiration date

Take time to breathe. Enjoy every moment before it’s too late

Rhyme

Blessings

Rocks painted by me and my grand-daughter
Rocks painted by me and my grand-daughter

Smile! Imagine Peace.

You Matter. Breathe.

Be Happy! And Dream.

Have Faith and Hope

Syllablic Verse

My grand-daughter and I had a “painting day” together today. We had fun painting inspirational rocks to put in my rock garden.

She was very creative and imaginative and turned two of the rocks into a horse face! 😊

Breathing in Life

Breathing, woman, freedom, life

Breath is a blessing

Our life is but a vapor

Thankful for each breath

Senryu

If you have ever lost your breath for a moment I am sure you can relate to this poem.

Having recently had an asthma attack that literally took my breath from me for a few seconds was very scary and made me realize how precious each breath I take is.

Life is short, breathe it in and give thanks for every breath!
