Tales To Spin

.

“If you are a dreamer come in

If you are a dreamer a wisher a liar

A hoper a pray-er a magic-bean-buyer

If you’re a pretender com sit by my fire

For we have some flax golden

tales to spin

Come in!

Come in!”

.

― Shel Silverstein

.

Elfje:

.

imagination

contrived situations

falsehood bordering truth

people, places,things changed

tales

.

Haiku:

.

what you think you see

the chameleon changes

natures hiding place

.

Poem:

.

let go or be pulled along

replace it with something better

does every life need a theme song

are we marked with a scarlet letter

.

seeking positive reinforcement

family and friends the preferred source

proud to receive a personal endorsement

stepping stones to  life’s best course

.

the devil dines on the negative

set your table with the bright optimistic

the attitude, good or bad, is never inherited

allow the mind and soul to grow synergistic

.

focused on the here and now

have faith, you do know how.

Spring

flowers lowes 050

.

It has been

a month … plus.

No excuses …

just being me.

Elfje:

.

Blooms

Multi colored

can pollinators discern

or is it smell

fragrance

.

Haiku:

.

Hummingbird flits by

Spring migration going north

Florescent traveler

POEM: Some Things Never Age
.

Old bones long for a warm sun
The winters have become longer, colder
The spirit grows weary and impatient
The curmudgeon becomes older, bolder

The memory begins to fade in and out
The eyes are clouded, the hearing diminished
Crows feet and ear hairs begin to sprout
Thoughts are begun and left unfinished

Friends and family begin to disappear
Love is now a warm ember, no longer a flame
If age and attitude are causing you fear
Don’t fault God, you have only yourself to blame

The soul never waivers, God’s will to be done
Each day an adventure, His name to proclaim
Mother Nature inspires each spring a renewal
The Uni-verse all glorious its wonders to exclaim

A legacy becomes a motive to achieve
Can I make this world a better place
Find the heart and open it with compassion
Make a wrong right with a warm embrace

Can you become the person God wants you to be
Enjoy your age, whatever it may be,
life has no guarantee
