Body Art

body-art

Painting pretty toes
sticking rings in our nose
tattoos everywhere
body art if you dare

Mom’s Piano

piano
Piano sits unplayed
silent songs unsung
no more do we gather
around mom’s piano
to sing songs
times we loved so well.
Those nights have long passed
they’re now just stories to tell.

Parades

parade

Pretty ponies prancing
Jugglers tossing balls
bands marching to the rat-ta-tat-tat
people cheering the parade
as ladies on floats
throw candy to the kids

How we love a parade
any occasion will do
old veterans marching
Boy Scouts, too.

Floats of flowers
flags a waving
followed by picnics
on the Green

And in her hour of glory
we crown the Festival Queen
a day of sweet memories
created for us all
anytime is good
winter, spring, summer or fall

Gone Fishing

Hook, line and sinker
I put no hook on the end
Just fishing for peace

The Dance

dancer

Bend, stretch, flex
turn with grace
each movement slow, subtle
moving to the peaceful
rhythm within
ignoring the clatter
of the world
I move to my serenity

Melody of Life

symphony

Every sound is part of the symphony.
The music of life is everywhere.
Breezes. sounding whales. rhythms of tides.
Every sound is part of the symphony of life.
Timpani’s of thunder, lovers’ sighs.
Life is ever creating melodies.
Every sound is part of the symphony.
The music of life is everywhere.
