blossoming individual

blossoming individual

women who pride themselves on being different
defying clichés
say they wish not to be given flowers for they die.
what if the Creator thought the same?
meanwhile desiring to be taken to the garden of Longwood
gasp at the fragile orchid petals
twisting their faces towards the Son in praise
finish the day sipping chilean merlot in an Italian café
those prideful, different, women
sip chardonnay and convince men we are all the same
as our vases stay empty

…is beautiful

…is beautiful

there was sunshine, laughter and a kiss
only things missing were the words
thought you heard innuendo tossed in the air
but it was partly cloudy

years later the forecast called for clear skies
you were surprised when i boldly asked
why is it i always kiss you first

your smile put me at ease
when you said let’s change that
pardon me if i am forever forward

precious granddaughters

precious granddaughters

Giggling bubbles of happinesS
Rays of sunshine which seem to shimmeR
And never lose their shinE
Now it’s a given they’re intelligenT
Designing their own triumpH
Destined for greatness from the beginninG
And perfectly designed like a haikU
United syllables within a stanzA
Gorgeous in the face and gifted in the minD
Honest, considerate and kinD
Three angels straight from heaveN
Each one has a brilliant aurA
Replicas of their beautiful motheR
Singing in harmony the most melodic sonG
