No Time Like the Present

NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT

The day after yesterday
is when I’ll begin.
I’ll take time to play
the day after yesterday–
nothing will stand in my way.
With a giggle and grin,
the day after yesterday
is when I’ll begin.

Ekphrastic Love

EKPHRASTIC LOVE

If
a
picture
is worth a
thousand words, then he
shall borrow all that he can to
describe the beauty he sees while gazing upon her.

In turn, he will lend her his eyes so she can see her
-self as the beauty that she is,
to see her full worth.
Their true love
is give
and
give.

Foundation Of My Heart

FOUNDATION OF MY HEART

Iowa ~
where the tall corn grows.
lightning bugs
dance at night,
and the work ethic is strong ~
it’s where I’m from–home.

The Trail Lies Ahead

THE TRAIL LIES AHEAD

The morning mist surrounds her
and vast open land awaits.
Nothing stands in her way ~ yet,
she hesitates,
waiting in silence.

Sensing her world will soon change,
she pauses to soak in this
place of peace.
