Hawaiian Set of Mind

Just when you think it wouldn’t be
The world sets you free
In a way you wouldn’t believe
Don’t think I’m naive
I have seen what I need
To understand what will be
For me to live happily

Airport Thoughts

I’m stuck between time zones
3 hours behind of where I have been
3 hours ahead of where I’m going
No one knowing what will happen
But you have to board the plane
To see where the destination takes you
It may be somewhere new.

The Uninvited Truth

I mean no harm when I speak the truth
I’m just trying to watch out for you
But now all I hear is silence
Knowing my words did not come invited
So I sit holding my breath
Till I hear the familiar tone
Of  your message on my phone.

Euphoria

So much joy
To be expressed
On paper

 

Can’t find the words
to show the feeling
of my heart

 

skipping beats
of exuberant delight
at the thought

 

of my life’s blessings
as I sit
in pleasurable denial.

Fortune Cookie Poem

Sometimes the world
Has a crazy way
Of putting you in situations
So that you can be surprised
Just in time
Of what type of person
You really are

Feeling Yes

Sometimes you have to say no
To the nibbles and kisses
Before opening your eyes in the morning
Making you smile before the day even breaks

 

Sometimes you have to say no
To the walk in the park
Love that is ever so easy to see
In the reflection of their eyes

 

Sometimes you have to say no
To the life you thought you’d live
To search for the person
With eyes that don’t reflect you

 

But stare in a way
That makes you feel the warm glow
Of their love upon your skin
So that you can sometime say, yes.

Hitting Pause

What a week!
Or was it a month?
Everywhere I turned
So many emotions
A business venture
A funeral
Late nights
Early mornings
So much joy
Yet so much sadness
Mentally exhausted
I never let myself stop moving
In fear of a mental lapse
Even in sleep
Wheels keep turning
Needing a way to escape
My world
So I thank you all for writing such beautiful works
Allowing me to take a few minutes
And take glimpses into your worlds
While hitting pause on mine
