bCounseling Theory Class

Of course being a fifty-something student,
In Counseling Theory class with twenty something females.
Tactfullness being superior to modesty,
Honesty supreme over misdirection,
Should I have told then about giving Joe a Viagra?
They were astonished and outraged!
Joe was a little hyperactive and foamed around the mouth for a couple days.
But he's really Ok now.
Got him back from the vet yesterday.

bDandelion Moments

Those dandelion moments
Before they descend
Waltzing among breezes
Then gone with the wind

Beautifully arched rainbows
And warm summer rains
Fleeting like new love
And sips of champagne

Red roses in winter
Sipping Chateau Lafitte wine
Swept up in the moment's
With you on my mind

Honeysuckle's aromas
Mingling among summer light
Hummingbirds suspended
In the middle of flight

Drifting in on fairy wings
Hushed silence all around
Fleeting hallowed layers
Untarnished all around

Cuddling under the goose down
Whispering love in an ear
Clinging to you forever
Til' longing disappears

Those dandelion moments
Before they descend
Waltzing in breezes
Then gone with the wind

{Inspired by Fiona Davidson}
'Desire reaches out, delicatly tracing face, with fingers of love'

bDaughter

Sometimes her little wings are hidden,
By little outstreched arms that care.
At times you can't see her halo,
Yet you know its always there.

Her angels gown of brilliant white,
Is shielded from mine eyes.
Yet my heart and soul confess,
An angel in disguise.

Her soft, serene little spirit,
Makes even cherubs cry.
As they rejoice, and laugh and sing,
For a spirit that never will die.

In stature, so petite and small,
How could one exude such love?
Unless the Father, and the Son,
Sent her from above.

bDay Dreaming

I often dream of such places
Where solitude and lilac scented breezes
Usher me off on the wings of an angel
Among the hidden confines of leaves
Changing their colors with the wind
On lily pads ruffled by the August breeze
While bream underneath stir their beds
Drifting with borrowed light at dusk where
Martins swan dive and serenade meals
Listening to death rattles of pecan leaves
As squirrels scurry and scramble for nuts
Squadrons of crows circling in flight above
Cacophony of symphony echoing the sky
I often dream of such places
