Poor pimpled pumpkin
twisted sister of season
Perfection over-rated
Unique in your divine self
Gift from the earth.
Set with your kin
Front porch in autumn
The others pale
In comparison.
Bumpy beauty
Svelte gourd
From the patch
We hail the pumpkin princess
Warts and all,
Belle of the harvest ball.

Life is heart

Life is heart
Beating strong
Blood flowing like emotions
Atmosphere of warmth filled
With healing and happy thought.
Life is heart
Colors swept upon all you see
People and places unique
All connected
Invisible thread
Love of all.
Life is heart
Endless joy of each moment
Lessons learned
Friends made
Beauty beheld forever
In memory.
Life is heart
Each fragment a part of the whole
Spun artistry of the world
Painted for you
For me
For eternity.
