Balanced strength

Living a life, like most everyone else
Balancing thought, faith , need
Amongst the status quo.
Who we are,
Reflections of ourselves
If we sleep well at night
What we believe shouldn’t matter
Except between ourselves and
Our consciousness.
I am me
You are you,
I could not change
A thing,
But you wake each day
in your belief system and I in mine,
We respect each other,
LoVe each other
Believe in each other
And that is our life.
This universe has brought me to be
Who I am,
I can sleep, dream, believe,
I have it all at the touch of my finger
Peace being grounded,
Woods that embrace me as their own,
My world as I know it.
My friends in the great world,
I hear you, I read you,
I cry and laugh with you,
Just in case on this fine evening you who wrote words
Yet still felt so alone,
Just a thought to let you know,
Tomorrow shines a new day
And please do smile,
Through loss of family members,
Self, it doesn’t matter…
We all lose as that’s what this life
Just does….time is a system which no one
Can measure to,
Today, tomorrow,
How about now,
Right this very second.
Someone is here after all,
Funny how that works…
We’ve got you….
Just smile believe and hold out that hope…
Tomorrow is just another day
For you
For me.

Flowers for mom

Sun is shining
A beautiful day once more
A bouquet to brighten
A Mother’s day.
Easter plants on sale
Brought myself home two,
Tulips and hyacinths
A gift from my husband
I thank him kindly
Though I bought them myself,
I say they are just the ones I wanted,
He tells me you’re welcome
With a grin and a chuckle.
Surprise for me
I laugh.
That’s what love is all about,
We pick each other out cards,
Then put them back on the shelf,
Money saved for vacation days
Is what the fun is all about.
But a watering can
Filled with color,
Pricey ones for my wonderful mother,
As she is worth every dime.
After all,
She’s put up with me these
Forty seven years
And I can still make her smile.


Scenes from a Mexican restaurant

A bottle of tequila , a glass of margarita ,
Perhaps a glass of mojito instead.
We’ll get a table near the street
Well eat some nachos
With Chorizo Frejole Dip,
Maybe a Shrimp & Lobster Quesadilla,
So much to try
I cannot lie,
I could live here forever and smile.
A bottle of Corona, a bottle of Sol,
It all depends upon your mood so mellow,
I’ll meet you any time you want
In our Mexican Restaurant.
And Gina will be there,
With all that you need,
A smile so bright,
You never want to leave.
We can go there anytime you want,
Fish tacos, oh my they rock,
Can I have one more to go,
It’s never enough, don’t you know?
One can feed two
But I like it for my breakfast too,
At my favorite Mexican restaurant .

Thoughts on my fave place in East Aurora NY Arriba Tortilla. Mmmmmm
With thanks to a few lyrics pilfered from Billy Joel.
