week 515 ~ sometimes easy wins

with 2 comments

sometimes easy wins
not overthinking
as a smile begins
overlooking sins
one eye is winking

sometimes easy wins
the roulette wheel spins
if you’re not sinking
as a smile begins
ignore might-have-beens
dreams are lost blinking

sometimes easy wins
end up in dustbins
time’s always shrinking
as a smile begins
avoid luck’s tail-spins
raise glasses clinking

sometimes easy wins
as a smile begins

week 450 ~ there is a scent of green in the air

leave a comment »

there is a scent of green in the air
breathe in and exhale leaving flowers
as you pass they bloom the weather’s fair
there is a scent of green in the air
a smile pauses to look lingers there
while joy transforms minutes to hours
there is a scent of green in the air
breathe in and exhale leaving flowers

week 378 ~ here together happily

with 2 comments

me.278a

here together happily
we will close this old year down
joyful friends and family
here together happily
misfortune you plainly see
has left us nary a frown
here together happily
we will close this old year down

Happy 2016 to all you readers here as well!

week 335 ~ there is just something about

with 2 comments

me335there is just something about
a sunny day warm dreamy
half close your eyes grin and shout
look around there you’ll see me

 a sunny day warm dreamy
a baby’s smile bursts open
look around there you’ll see me
chortle flap your arms now when

 a baby’s smile bursts open
the height of pure happiness
chortle flap your arms now when
all you imagine is bliss

the height of pure happiness
when turmoil’s over through
all you imagine is bliss
a day with nothing to do

when turmoil’s over through
there is just something about
a day with nothing to do
half close your eyes grin and shout

week 292 ~ a sonnet for baby S sound the horns

with 2 comments

me.292a sonnet for baby S sound the horns
so long coming so welcome in our hearts
see he grins and wriggles with a newborn’s
instinct for the right reaction then starts
to coo non-word words whose subtext imparts
a comfort being here with us so new
and yet exactly right worry departs
with winter’s snows and somehow we are through
to bluer skies and smiles yes crying too
for he firmly announces something’s wrong
until we figure out what we should do
but spring now fills our days with light and song
and we sing too breathing the scented air
for this sweet boy the answer to our prayer

my first Spenserian sonnet
abab bcbc cdcd ee

week 264 ~ reach out and touch you

with 4 comments

me.264reach out and touch you
as you float away
it’s all I can do
can’t make this time stay

as you float away
have to dry my tears
can’t make this time stay
then your smile appears

have to dry my tears
you’re where you should be
then your smile appears
that makes me happy

you’re where you should be
I love you you know
that makes me happy
now before I go

I love you you know
it’s all I can do
now before I go
reach out and touch you

week 260 ~ I know that Mona Lisa smile

with 7 comments

me.260I know that Mona Lisa smile
one corner up the other still
unsure deciding if it will
let joy sing out or wait awhile
savor the moment to beguile
time but when the corners begin
to slide apart and discipline
succumbs to delight well you’ll see
it’s less mysterious merely
DaVinci’s prelude to a grin

week 89 ~ I want to feel like there’s a smile

with 46 comments

I want to feel like there’s a smile
in my shirt pocket happiness
in the five day forecast no guess
work about it when I speed dial
hope I want it to answer trial
and error won’t do any more
this time when I walk out my door
I want the full optimistic
package with me so I can pick
living happily evermore
