Plus and Post

I’m running late on this whole PAD thing.  Too many reasons to list.  So I will be playing catch up the rest of the week.  Wish me luck.

PLUS

One plus one
and that was fun

Then Love became flesh…

One plus one equals three
and the more, the merrier, you see

Then Love became flesh
again…

One plus one equals four
and life’s full of adventures galore

Then Love became flesh
once more…

One plus one equals five
Love around here really thrives!

POST

What do you mean you sent me a post?
Did you publish a blog?
Write an article for an online news?
I haven’t heard from you in ages!
What do you mean you sent me a post?

Mail? What mail?
I was just on the computer earlier today.
My inbox was full of spam.
I didn’t see your name.
Mail? What mail?

A “real” letter sent to me?!
Handwritten on paper with pen and ink?!
Stamped and sealed with a kiss?!
I didn’t know those still existed!
A REAL letter sent to me!

O happy day
I got a post
The mailman
is on his way
I got a post
from my friend
In reply
a card, I’ll send
– the non-electronic kind
of course. (The End.)

Hold That Smile

happy toddler run with ballstop

right there

freeze the time

I want you to

hold that smile

for me

smile

I need to remember

the dancing light in your eyes

as the wind tousles your hair

and carries your laughter

to my heart

I need to remember

this joy in my soul

this feeling of content

that life is beautiful

just the way it is

stop

right there

freeze the time

I want you to

hold that smile

for me

smile

Tentative

to-do

Breakfast

Lunch

Dinner

Cleaning

Homeschool

Shower

Planting

Laundry

“Reader”

So many on the list

I’ll

get

to

it

Eventually…

 

Bright / Dark

Standing on the
edge of sorrow
looking to tomorrow

Should I just jump
and fly a little
before the end comes near?

The mist is thick
The way unclear
All alone with my fears

The horizon
spread out beneath
my every hope and dream

Where is the light –
that bright beacon –
to pierce a soul so dark?

Should I just jump
and fly a little
before the end comes near?
