Almost 2018

Signed - Snow Falling from the Pines

what does it mean

what will it bring

what are your dreams

mine are filled with some of  these….

writing, hiking, and more snaps

travels, walking and taking naps

a grandson arrives in Februar

so does the winter and perhaps more white hair

in the Spring, a little more sunshine gives way to plant more trees and a garden to til

up to my elbows in poetry, a book and art

no day or night should pass without a kiss to my heart

peace I believe begins with me

seeds to be sown one letter at a time

A is for Alicia, B for Bed, C for Cathy, D for Dad, E for Elephant, F for Faith, G for Gretchen, H for Home, I for Italy, J for the Joy still unknown

sow seeds of love and peace, of green trees and saplings, breathe oxygen into this space

Signed - What It's All AboutTradition

Holiday

Family Reunions

Fireworks

Sparklers

Games and Barbecues

Hot, steamy, humid afternoons

Time for a swim in a creek, river or backyard bin

When Americans immigrated from all  corners of the world collide and celebrate the freedoms we have with one big grin.

Today we don’t celebrate quite the same, the America I know is divided, Republican and Democrat, Liberal and Unaffiliated, White or Black, Woman or Man, Child or Adult and so many other prejudices I care not to name their parts.

What holds me in Gratitude, is Faith. A Faith that God exists and will prevail over the injustices of this country and world. Peace will once again settle in all of our bones and hearts.  Until then, I will continue to share the peace and love planted in my heart so long ago with all of those I meet through writing and art.

Peace. Shalom. Heiwa, Pace, Paix, Sholem, Beke, Pax, Paz, Frieden
