Someday Again

Fist held against your chin staring beyond, adrift in recollection. A ponder of well-being was the focus of those faraway eyes. Rock…rock until contentment, unbroken ritual. You miss, you worry, because you loved. The tittle-tattle of your kindred always spawned a glow in your half-cocked smiles, your infectious being. Dear grand, by and by with a […]

Dandelions to Babes

Out the door, I pick up the pace. Time to play…no time to waste. Down the yard, tightrope the curb, As I zipped up the road, not a “hello” was heard. Along the path such a pretty site, Dandelions, Dandelions like a sea of white. Where did I go you must be starting to ask, to […]

Leave Alone

As I stare at the branches the leaves fall away, Barely able to hang on, the season won’t let them stay; Their colors deep shades of orange, some the darkest red, I watched as the wind held you as you fled; Your journey has ended and you now have to go, Where will you land, […]

Just stop and smell the ocean…

Just a couple days ago, while completing a task on behalf of my employer I had the pleasure of taking an extended drive to a community by the name of Conception Harbour, Newfoundland.  I had never been to this place before, but I was elated that I had the opportunity to visit this small town […]
