Oceans - a true story.


Oceans with her ebb and flow
always seems to have the "know"
female energy at its' best
always churning even at rest.

Thought I would edit and add this to today's blog - my true story

I absolutely love the ocean but very scared to go out too far.   when I was seven years old, I was out in the Atlantic Ocean by Montauk Point with my mother and a friend.  We went there every summer and I played and dove threw the big waves all the time.   But on this day, my mother was holding hands with us both and one of those big waves broke too far out.    There was no way to get to it in time.  The wave smashed down on top of me.   Needless to say, I lost hold of my mother's hand and went down!

Once I came to my senses, I remembered to swim toward the light  But what - the water was churning so hard that I couldn't tell.  Instead at seven years old, I decided to just "be".  I watched the crabs go twirling by as they were caught up in the wave too.  I spoke to the Creator and just then my head popped up into the air.  "Mom, I want to go in!" I heard myself scream.  Then another wave smashed down on me.  

We got to the beach; my friend had been washed up there by the wave.  And I must admit, I have never gone out that far in the ocean again.

Darkness #1


Experiencing the separation
Believing the lies
Walking into oblivion
Only to recognize 
The spirit -

The reflection of our 
Our Image.

SO SO - SHOUT OUT on Bethany Dale

My dear friend Bethany Dale posted my poem, "The White Morning Dove", on her blog  She is still in school and already bloggin' away.  Check out her page -

Written in Black & White


Here's her intro:

Welcome to the world of Written In Black & White. Here I invite you to take a look around and peek at my daily rambling about life, fashion glitter, cakes, books, films and much more. There is no limit to the wonderful and bizarre thoughts floating around in my mind that you may come across on this very page. Make yourself comfortable, get out your box of chocolates and enjoy! 

and this is how she started the blog - check out her beautiful and stunning writting. 

I have always admired people who have a strong passion for writing and the English language as a whole. People such as Shakespeare, Wordsworth, Bronte, Rowling, Cox and several other freelance writers that I just adore. I love their ability to manipulate words, mixing them together to form such stunning sentences and phrases. Its probably one of the reasons I love blogging so much. That and the friends I have made along the way such as Val from Vallee's Blog. We actually became friendly on another website and it wasn't until a  while back that I realized we both had blogs of our own!
Recently Val, ever the inspiring poet, posted a beautiful poem on her blog called The White Morning Dove. I just loved it. It was so true and honest that it brought tears to my eyes- not that I'm trying to depress you or anything.

She is such a wonderful inspiring person and guess what else?

Let's do a SO (Shout Out) about her BIRTHDAY!!!!


July 31st!

So let's rock 'n roll all week long especially since it IS the start of your vacation!

Flowers for my friend!

Twings & Twangs

 Twings & Twangs
 Tears flow I know not why
     but lately it seems all I do is cry.
    Back hurts as I stretch and bend
     as if I am a body to mend.
    Tendinitis they say is in my wrist
    though it only takes the slightest twist
    to scream the aches into my veins
     telling me simply to deal with the pain.
    But what about the hip with its' twings and twangs
      reminding me when I walk this is more than a "dang"!
       Or the burning of back flowing down through the legs
     attempting to escape but one can only beg
      to let itself known and attempt to rest
       for all we can do is our very best.

Fiery Morn


Caressing colors of orange and blue,
my thoughts wonder as I think of you.
What are you doing to start the day?
I have not seen you lately; I wonder if I may...
to share the colors oh so bright
if you didn't know it could give you a fright.
Do we see a fire from the East
or is it merely a gorgeous feast...
of yellows, oranges, reds and blues
reminding me of a love
lost but true?
This is my Sunday, a fiery morn
bringing back memories of why I was born

Soul Mates


One heart beat
one thought
one dream
united in love
torn apart by life
creating pain
and sorrow
causing God sadness
the angels to weep
and the Universe 
to wait

The White Morning Dove

I don't usually blog twice in a day - but have something on my mind this morning..... 

                        THE WHITE MORNING DOVE

What is this sadness I currently feel?
Is it the wars or am I in fear?
Could it be the hunger and strife
Which so many today have begun to call life?
I walk through the grass as I hear the birds call,
clouds overhead, the rain begging to fall.
Oh how serene the day has begun;
I close my eyes to imagine the fun.
But behind these eyes of baby blue,
I no longer see peace that comes with morning dew.
Instead I travel to lands near and far
only to find my soul shaken and ajar.
It seems that man has encompassed the hate
rather than  what the Creator wished to be our fate.
We have the free will to choose good or bad;
so why choose the evil?  My feelings are mad!
My heart cries for the children who live without "home";
no longer cries of joy, one hears only the moan.
The battles of war fought under the sun
are beginning to promise that our world is done.
I came here to cherish, bring faith, hope and love.
I circle the Earth as a white morning dove.
But now all I feel is sadness and gloom;
I am so afraid this is our doom.
So what is this sadness I currently feel?
It is the cries for hope and the love to heal.
