Slumber Daze

Wrote this in 1998 when I lived at the end of a road looking out into the fields with grazing horses.


Dew dripping from bent stalks of grass
Pansies looking at the ground
Still asleep in their nighttime slumber
Horses leisurely strolling through the fields
Dispersing the dew
Parting the grasses
Enjoying the coolness
of the morning after the rain.

Another grand POTTI team member


Welcome to The Vintage Teacup! Our other Etsy Store is Vintage Keepsakes. It was a natural progression from linens and doilies to teacups and teapots, they just go together!

Enjoy all our stores, we are happy to combine shipping across the stores. Just drop me a note when you do so I don't miss it.

Thanks so much for visiting!

Todays' blog somewhere in the past

Something I wrote somewhere in the past...

Leaf green
Breezes caressing
Slowly to the ground
Dancing swirls
Penetrating spirit
Soulful songs.

Busy Breezes

Busy Breezes

From the Northwest
flows the scents
of the upcoming hours.
Humidity rising
heat flies by
overcome by a minute
whisper of coolness.
Quickly eradicated
by a moment
of pure hot sun
beating down on
black pavement
increasing the
question of what's
to come -
blowing tablecloths
and then a cloud
Essence of busy breezes.

Here are some photos of the outside art fair I participated in when I wrote this poem several years ago.  Boy I had a lot to seel - too bad almost no one came that year cuz was too hot!

Today's sunrise.... and a special prayer for a special friend.

Wanted to share today - especially to a special friend in West Virginia - we'll call her M. - and she can use your thoughts and prayers right now - thank you.

Our sunrises sometimes completely amaze me!  This next one looks like a ghost flying across the sky to me -


If flows
through sunrises
clear skies
enlightening dreams
cutting through demons
encompassing the process
which defines

Here's a poem I wrote in my one and only correspondence poetry class so it's a little different. 


Dellece awaited the moment
with enduring patience,
the arrival of her prince charming
galloping upon his stead
of brilliant white,
to consummate the
scintillating attraction
of two quivering lovers.

He enveloped her within
his robust forearms
showering her golden locks
with unending kisses
immersing Dellece into a
land of enchantment
as the mingled
their souls
into One.

Silhouetted figures
dancing on your lampshade
wisps of light crossing
your vision
a breeze
a chime
a momentary
wisp of warmth

listen to the angels...

your heartbeat to life
the joy of mornings
warmth of afternoons
and the moonlight
of the evening

the smile of life
is always with you
within your

I know that often times many of us stop and scream - nowhere - I sure have....


Too many voices 
Too many directions
to turn
One syllable fills the brain
with a million emotions
One vision thwarts
rationality - 
Nowhere to go
No avenue clear
No path offering

perusing our minds
every instant
of every moment-
yesterday, today
and tomorrow....

What have we done
left undone
need to do - 

What happened
may happen
could happen
would happen
if we changed
our course
tried harder
worked more
dreamed less
all the while
to let go
let God

Luckily- no money here

My mind is always going from here to there and back again and then around the corner.   If I had the money, I would have thousands of things made, created, etc..  and they would begin to think that I was dinner.  Therefore, I say luckily - no money here.  I do what I can with what I have; I think it makes one focus more...  anyway.  I picked up some photo cards from the local store where I have been selling them and decided to put in my Etsy shop.

Here is the first one I posted today.

           Took off of Santa Monica Pier, CA USA - is actually more colorful than this
