A Journey into Creativity

Missing You

Boxes, wrapped in white and silver, still sit in my closet, Sixteen years later, unopened. You left us this day, unannounced. Unexpectedly. I talk to you all the time. I wonder if you hear if there is a beyond. Or perhaps your spirit lies behind one of your own great-grandchildren’s eyes? You are still missed. […]

All in All

Gifts for him, for her, gifts for one and all, Have you seen boxes stacked six feet tall? They litter the table, they clutter the hall, Is online shopping better than the mall? What happened to gifts homemade and small? I’m not so sure about this craziness, y’all! No matter what, I mustn’t stall, It’s […]


Snappy, feeling so snappy. Turn to the left, boom!, Finally the pieces arrive; Turn to the right, blam!, installer on his way. It takes a team, but, I feel so so snappy. Things are falling Into place. Finally. Is the end in sight? Is that what I see? Please, oh please, Let it be! Snappy!!!


The light sparkles on snow flecked antlers, as the quiet deer sits among the pine upon a blanket of white. Moonlight streams through the branches, bringing sweet serenity to the forest floor.

“Is your dragon red or green?” He looks up with an arched brow. “You know, those are evil dragons.” She smiled, unaware. He continued on. “I’d rather my dragon be silver or gold.” She lowered her head having learned once more. But a red dragon would be sublime, and she’d love to see a green […]


Crisp air and blue skies dotted with cotton clouds Yellow and white flowers abound Butterflies flutter among the buds The birds sing their songs High up in the swaying trees A few moments in nature bring relief Here I find a little peace.

Decorate My Heart

Hallmark movies playing in the background. Pecan bars and warm tea on the table. A new tree adorns our living room, Full of warm white lights and berries. A woodland theme I chose this year. New ornaments first, gently unwrapped, Collected throughout the year. Some homemade ones added in. It looks full, but I want […]
