l am a bird in a cage
pretty and loved
yet I feel so alone
people delight and stare
they love my cage
and the clever way I get carried around
when the admiring is done,
it is back into a box I go
what good is it to be pretty and loved
if I can’t be free
lush, beautiful … soft, sensuous
gentle rhythms pulsate — in the tremendous
flight of imagination … that takes place
when I am drawn into that creative space
of canvas, acrylics and the artists need
to create the emotion that begs expression
all because my computer misbehaves
PL calendar day 9 It’s interesting because it’s different
Free your mind to consider other and all possibilities.
Happy start to a new week!
no tropical blues,
just simple flowing waves,
happily rolling in to cool
on a hot humid day
when no one wants to come out to play
it is just one of those days =^_^=
PL calendar day 21 –
Let’s be thankful for everything we have rght now
Now is an accuulation of every moment leading up to it and everything that continues to progress and develop to become NOW.
Be thankful for everything.
it was a restless dream
I heard my thoughts,
the challenges from various sections
of my overworked gray cells
the unfinished sentences
the words of wisdom
clashing with aggressive shouts
the voice of reason was not to be ignored
throught it all
a part of me sat unmoved
was this nonsense
or merely me
unable to make sense
of the prattle and the inner voices
that when all vying for attention
at the same time
make no sense at all
PL Calendar day 2
Live each day with hope Even in those situation when you feel trapped with no way out, face every challenge with purpose and enthusiasm and you will always find a way.
Everything we have today, was built on the hard work of our ancestors..
Always remember to be humble and thankful. Every moment you live, every experience you have, becomes part of who you are. Be yourself, no one can do it better than you.

Moderation, small helpings. Sample a little bit of everything. These are the secrets of happiness and good health. Julia Child
When a stranger lands in your space – There is nowhere to escape
The eyes reflect the night, you look for life inside, but find there is no sight
Others wander the night, some with seeing eyes, but not the stranger in your space
what brought her here, will tomorrow a tear be shed, or will we both stare into the night
waiting for the starship to return for her. Of my world she cannot be, for in my world, there is room for only me I have eyes that see and a heart that breaks, vacant eyes belong in another time and space.
Be calm and kind hesitating to share true feelings, can hurt not only ourselves but others. PL calendar .. day 17 Oyashikiri
I came, and went, laughed, cried, blossomed and flew away.
You missed that moment, didn’t you?
A moment comes, and vanishes, within seconds,
true intentions come from the heart
no day is like another
a moment lost in anger
is time not lived in happiness
with winter comes a calming bliss
purity and stillness
no matter the chaos around us
when we are present in every way
a moment is never missed
life is what we make of it
choices we make,
be happy today, make it a special day
why, because you can!
