Another Week Off


Hi Guys!  I am still busy with my middle grade novel, so I’ll need another week off.  Again, if I need more time off next week I will let you know.  Just to give you a heads up, if I do need more time next week, it will probably be awhile before I post more poems; probably more than a week.  If I don’t need more time next week, I will post more poems then.  Take care!


New Experiences


Try new things
Explore new places
Meet new people
Eat new foods
I’m going on an adventure!

Try new things
Explore new places
Meet new people
Eat new foods
I don’t know what to expect!

Will I still…

Try new things
Explore new places
Meet new people
Eat new foods?


Spring Green


As far as I can see,
I see green.
The woods is greener
Than I’ve ever seen.

(At least for six months)

Green underbrush,
Green leaves on twigs,
A green canvass for the forest’s
Beautiful things.

Through clumps of green,
I see something glimmer,
The babbling,
Rattling, rambling river!

I feel it quiver,
I see it shine,
The river’s here for everything,
As much yours as mine.



Sweet, soft, tender doughnut
Strong chocolate icing on top
Soft, light, fluffy dough beneath,
Crunchy sprinkles way high up



What is success?
Learning alongside of:
All different colors in a rainbow,
All different voices in the chorus,
All different critters in the woods.

Giving your own special gift
To this struggling world
With passion and with love.



If I want to loose weight,
I must wait.

Wait to buy cheese
Until I’m ready to cook with it.
Otherwise, um num num!

Wait to visit the used bookstore
Until I’ve lost weight.

Wait until next week
To stop being extra careful,
Otherwise, I’ll give up.

Wait to make excuses
Until these excuses are reasons.

Wait until mealtime
To eat something again,
Otherwise, points down the drain.

Wait to make oven fried chicken again,
Until it’s the week’s only treat.

Wait until I’ve made progress,
Until I can feel good about myself.
Or can I feel that way now?
