Explore, Dream, Discover.


“Twenty years from now

you will be more disappointed

by the things that you didn’t do

than by the ones you did do. So,

throw off the bowlines, sail away

from safe harbor, catch the

trade winds in your sails.

Explore, Dream, Discover.”


  ~  Mark Twain


Elfje:            (Cinquain)          

sail away
from safe harbor
catch the trade winds

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

God blessed the love birds
always and ever happy
thoughts of each other

sharing and caring as one
God met their needs, not their wants



the one who held the family together
always there despite the weather
feast or famine, healthy or sick
she was there through thin and thick

clinging to her apron strings
she was an angel earning her wings
year after year as we grew
she always did what a mother should do

us from the world she did protect
and when we did wrong she did correct
many good times stored in memory
events supplied by her boundless energy

sadly celebrated only one day a year
I see her reflection in every tear
kudos to mothers everywhere
the world would cease without their care


ME and the Boss
