What We Worship


Money gaining and losing value
why do we worship
such a fickle commodity
easily manipulated
by greed and corruption
all the while ignoring
the advice of our forefathers:
In God We Trust

The Bath


Take a bath
soap, steam, shampoo
wash away the day’s grime
sweet baby fresh
I start anew.

Life can be as simple
as we wish.

No More Princess

spoiled princess

No more princess
spoiled woman
I’ve been taken down
a notch or two
seen how the others live
been given a big lesson
in humility
struggling with it though
knowing others must be elevated
rather than me being lowered

Morning Song

coffee at sunrise

Sky of gold, air crisp and cool
morning birds calling
another day unfolding.
I awake with wonder
delighted to have one more day
to listen to the angels sing
the morning song of love.

What If?


What if I’m making it all up
no such thing as spirituality
miracles, Creator, eternity
just wishful thinking
to justify what I can not explain
to make me feel less afraid?

Did you ever ask this question?

Penny Wish


Pennies in a row
wishes waiting
to be wished
dreams yet to be identified
sometimes knowing what we want
is the hardest part

Don’t Kick the Cat

mopping floor

I pick a chore
any one will do
decide I don’t like it
kick the cat
d0 the hated job
wasn’t so bad
wonder why
I made it so hard
