Happy Birthday, USA

 

 

Our flag proudly flies
holding men and women in

its bold stars and stripes
Colors in the sky
together we “ooh” and “ahhh”
Independence Day

Wishing you all who celebrate a fun and safe Fourth of July!
Each year we go to our county fair, which is our plan for today.
And each year it’s the same, nothing changes,
yet the experience is still fun as we view the exhibits, the animals,
ride the big Ferris Wheel, take in the great music, enjoy some wine and beer
and of course, enjoy the fair food…my faves are gyros and root beer floats. :)

So have a Happy time and a Wonderful Weekend!
Sharing Love and Hugs, Lauren

Duet

Our dance
continues
beneath
the sheets

where our
movements

stay in sync

taking turns
as conductor,
we never
miss
a beat

this melody
we composed
has us only
wanting more

leading to
a beautiful
crescendo,

absolutely
loving

the score

Voices

They are in control of
Their content and volume

They can spread love universally
Their intent can increase cruelty
They are powerful to a higher degree
Their gift is not to be taken in vain
They are us, they are you, and they are we
Their capability can beautify our world
They are counting on us to nurture
Their ability to mend what. has. been. broken.

Facelift

Dear Friends,

After four years of blogging, I am ready for a transformation. So if all goes smoothly and WordPress doesn’t throw a wrench in my plans :) my blog name will change to ‘Baydreamer’ today. For those of you who know me well, I’m sure you’ll realize where this name came from. The content of LScott Poetry will remain the same though. Also, I’ve recently done some remodeling to a new blog theme. This “makeover” is a fresh beginning to a new season and a continuation on this journey of writing, reading, and of course, meeting new friends. Thanks again for all your dedicated support to my blog. 

Wishing you a smooth start to your new week and to the beginning of summer!
Much Love, Lauren ♥

Accomplish picassa with Sabrina's photo 2015

 

In honor of our daughter’s university graduation, I found this quote, which I thought was perfect for today’s festivities and celebrations. The gorgeous photo is from my good friend, Sabrina.

Our daughter has persevered not only academically but also personally and today she’ll walk across the finish line with a Bachelor’s Degree in hand. To say we’re proud doesn’t even cover all the emotions. :)

So go out and Live, Dream, Act and Believe!

Sending much love, Lauren ♥
