Memories of Thanksgiving

travelling along the old country lane
a long way I have come
a long time
seeing the landmarks of my youth
the old trees at the bend
welcoming those who come happily
warning those of no good.

Each footstep leaves its mark
from my fine leather boots
in the snow that dusts everything overnight
the sweet smell of chimneys
mingling with the crispness
of the mid-winter freshness in the quiet
journey of days long past.

the goose is stuffed
overflowing with old bread
apples and herbs from the summer
onions baked slowly
sweet potatoes added to the pot
I take myself
through the memories of my past

have I been forgotten
out of sight and out of mind
a whisper in the night
Mother, have ye not had a single word
from that child of thine?
the best to him
as he travels beyond the bend

the laughter comforts me
warmth from the embraces of love
changes will rule this day
as I once again
sit at my mother's table
taking in her tears of comfort
as they cut the Thanksgiving goose.

Horton Hears A Who


When was the last time you read a children's book?
I grew up reading everything
an obsession before I knew what obsession meant
I read all the fairy tales that used to be
in the Encyclopedias
hours upon hours sitting on a neighbor's floor
starting with A and finally ending in Z.

I went to every movie show from Disney
sitting in large theaters with airmen and eating my popcorn
I colored every fairy tale
coloring book that was produced in my time
then I found libraries
it was like giving rich chocolate to a child
a whole building filled with book after book
giving me a new floor in which to sit.

Children's books are stories
the entertain children across the world
written in languages and illustrated to bring words alive
but...
children's books are really lessons
lessons of morals, lessons of love, lessons of compassion
they teach the path of giving, sharing
and just caring.

Horton Hears a Who
is about the importance of each of us
the importance of good against the foes in our path
the importance of standing together
fighting for the right
of each and every individual on this round ball
of humanity.

Dr. Seuss taught many lessons
and we need to raise our voices for good
for rights, for love and for the future.

WordPress For My Published Books



I have started a free page on Wordpress that hosts all of my published books and unpublished short stories.  I'm still learning the site and whether it will work to highlight my writing.

Let Go, let go and live



Holding by the last thread of life
a breath lost
in the audible breeze
teasing with adventures upon its breast
Let go, let go and live
there is nothing in life to fear
for at the end of the road
waiting with open heart 
a tear maybe two
our destiny measured in breaths
each one gratefully renewing our existence
in the blink of an eye
the road travels beneath our feet
the wind sings
of our wild spirit and loving heart
emerging from the earthly circle
the leaf
one surely beautifully unlike another
feeds and nurtures
all that exists in the world
from the beginning until eternity
it hangs
golden orange and curling
accepting the cycle
as the audible breeze whispers with confidence
Let go and fly with me
as it rises first up
before catching the currents
living life without fear
of the adventure foretold millions of years ago
all start the same
all end in their own time
Let go.
