hmmm Poetry thru my eyes

It is difficult to express the magic of spring when the temperatures remind us more of winter. But here goes ...

I relive the moments
that bring the greatest joy,
smiles and laughter
even though my soul you

I relish in the memories
that places me the clouds,
taught my heart so sing
as I danced round and round.

Spring is fickle,
sunshine and rain,
cold and dark
with skies of gray.

Flowers frozen in bloom
like a snapshot of my love
for you.

I relive the moments
that bring the greatest joy,
smiles and laughter
even though my soul you toyed.

Life is not a fairytale.

For as much as we try to control, life is pretty much out of control. In this decision making process I find that my heart does most of the thinking. Not that I so much regret that but in all reality I would have surely taken a different path had I let my brain do a little more of the thinking.
Which is good that my daughter is finding herself and coming up to the plate with some really cool Ideas. She has been overhauling Autumns Boutique and bringing some really great ideas to life. I do hope you take a look at the website when its finished and leave a note and less us know what you think. We have some of our traditional products and introducing some new products to our line.

and the page turns.

My father use to always say " No goodbyes, I'll be seeing ya" From that time on I have had a difficult time with goodbyes. Every person that crosses our path somehow becomes a part of us, as if our character was nothing more than a sponge. It wasn't so much with death as death was a closure but more it had to do with the way some people just walk out of your life. No goodbyes, no I'll be see'n ya , they just disappear as if that time never existed.

In all reality everyone puts a different spin on the chapters of life. I didn't realize how much interpretation altered the experience for each and everyone of us. I think that unknown that we succumb to is void when the path we walk is laden with truth. There are times in my life where I still don't completely comprehend the lesson. Are we to experience heartache, pain, as well as the love and peace? Maybe when all the chapters are said and done our place on this earth is over. For me it is like a massive headache , the more think the more my head hurts.

I have desperately tried to put all of life and the experiences into perspective to no avail. My guardian angel must have been working overtime.

Awakened a child of ten,
to see the world from within,
gazing out I could see
reality and a dream.

From there a child to a teen,
I stood before the world
and bared all that was
truly a part of me.

I cried down the aisle,
erasing all my hope
and leaving me with
a smile.

I was lost and lonely,
until I found you
and my life changed
forever and to the darkness
I said adieu.

You decided there would be
and end, without ever saying
goodbye my friend.

Now the pages of life turn,
but your vision inside me burns,
that is how it goes,
I know your love still grows.


I feel trapped in two webs,
of dreams of happiness and the pain of reality.
One letter would have changed my world
and the direction of the path.

mixed desire,
troubled heart,
soul on fire.

heavens blue,
faded sun shine,
stars adieu.

Reality writes the next chapter.
Fear of the unknown is wasted energy.
The final chapter is the same of all of us,
only the place and time change.
Embrace the moment,
for that is our only guarantee.
It is true tomorrow may never come,
therefore I acknowledge my love as the powerful magic that it is.
For those who believe,
the pages turn.

It is those who crisscross our path over and over that amaze me. They seem to give an otherwise meaningless journey reason. For those who stand by me throughout this journey with many hills and bends ...thank you.

The truth is love begins...
There is no replacing,
I couldn't even try.
You took my heart
and left a void inside.

Tucked away like a
bear on a winter day,
hiding from reality
of the dreams I cannot

My heart was given
away and you have
held it since that
very first day.

Poetry... the documentaion of an empty heart.

I danced in the heavens
and I fell from high,
the experiences of life
we cannot deny.

I sang and I laughed,
I most certainly cried,
I felt my heart live
and I felt my heart die.

I have loved and been loved

As I looked back in kind of a review mode, I saw not only my experiences and accomplishments but lessons of life. I felt myself placed upon the clouds in a higher plateau that seem to be surreal and also the slide backward that reality can bring. I realize that it really is chapters of ones life. I have touched with my senses and explored worlds that had not even existed in my own mind. It was when I tried to retain in a rigid box all that is that missed the greatest lesson. No matter where our travels take us, no matter the end of the story, we have touched and been touched by many. In a odd way the past is just that and does not have the weight it once did. The future does not come with fear. I see that life is a gift and amazing and wonderful gift that without notice can be taken away. Therefore I will spend the rest of my days in celebration. I have loved, I have been loved...
