Just to see you smile

 

kitten and deer

If I could,
I’d give you the sun
wrapped in joy and love
because it’s you
who I think the world of

I’d bring a cup of warmth
for your coldest days
and my eraser of compassion
would take away your pain

If only I could
you know I would

Have a wonderful day! 

A Moment’s Peace

shade tree

Relaxation finds me beneath this tree
pondering life and sweet serenity
Butterflies do their carefree dance
in the air is the scent of romance

From where I sit in a patch of shade
squirrels scamper on the carpet of jade
Birds join in with a song or two
their melodies erase my moods of blue

Life bounces by, yet stillness abounds
calming every nerve with all unique sounds
Even so, complexities of living have me baffled
but deeply I feel there’s nothing I can’t handle

This pillar of strength shelters and embraces
while emotions change to different faces
I close my eyes to the whispers of the breeze
allowing my mind to finally be at ease

Celebrating 4 years with WordPress! :)

Happy Anniversary!

Man’s Best Friend’s Entertaining Antics

Ever since Copper became a member of our family,
squirrels have become the “bane of my existence!”
He shows tremendous confidence in being able
to catch the fast little critters, but to no avail.

feeling so close, yet so far
there’s hope for next time

 High up in the sky

looking down as if to smile

they always prevail

(but Copper also shares mellow moments
where he breathes in the beauty around him)

The enjoyment and fun our furry pets provide us
is priceless and worth a million smiles…

and hold Copper at the same time)
