Admirals Harvest

August 27th, 2013

Admirals Harvest

Labor Day approaches! It's back to school time! It's time for nature to shed her greens of summer, and take on the firey colors of autumn. This poem/ painting celebrates the harvest and the 'autumn' of our years.

The harvest is in on the old man's farm,
The sun is setting,
The air is warm.
An Admiral by trade,
With a farmer's heart,
He spent many weekends,
Pulling a cart.
Jacket on the chair,
Hat on the table,
He sips his wine,
Glad he was able,
To provide such a bounty,
For those in his care,
With the butterflies,
He is happy to share.
Admirals as well,
They feel right at home,
Tasting the fruits,
The Admiral has grown.
The butterflies dance and float,
In the cool mountain breeze,
Persued by his grandkids,
Who chase them with ease.
They giggle with glee,
As they chase them around,
And our Admiral thanks the Lord,
For the joy he has found

Simply Elemental

Simply Elemental

Greetings! I hope each of you are having a marvelous summer! Today's post is a painting which is part of my 'Casting Call' series. This piece will be used for the cover of a book being written by a very gifted holistic practitioner. I have found great 'inner' peace by connecting to our natural world, and I believe our answers come when we still our minds and listen.


It's simply elemental,
The key to eternal bliss,
Connect yourself to all that is,
You'll find your happiness.
Greet the warmth of the new day sun,
With a mighty lion's roar,
Feel the energy flow,
From Mother Earth's inner core.
Listen to the wind,
When it gently blows your hair,
It has traveled far my friend,
And has so much to share.
When fire consumes all that was,
And only ashes remain,
Like the mighty phoenix,
You will rise again.
Trust the moon,with it's glowing light,
When it asks you to wish on a star,
Remember the elements,
Are part of who you are.

Catatonic

July 16th, 2013

Catatonic

Good morning! I hope everyone out there is having a wonderful summer! Mine has definately been busy! My poem for today is a story about a wise little mouse and a feline with a weakness.

We all have our weak spot,
Something we can't resist.
This little mouse has discovered,
What tops his kitty's list.
He knocked the bottle over,
Then quickly removed the pin,
Our feline didn't know,
What trouble she was in.
She collapsed on the floor,
In a catatonic state,
Surrounded by the puddle,
Which determined kitty's fate.
Bested by a mouse,
With a clever brain,
Who realized the key to his success,
Could be poured down the drain!

The Artistic Spirit

June 23rd, 2013

The Artistic Spirit

Good morning! This post is for ALL of the creative people in the world. Whether you are a painter, a sculpter, a photographer or musician, the artistic spirit resides within you.

The artistic spirit is often a lonely soul,
Adrift in a sea of possibility,
When consummed by inspiration,
It's thoughts become reality.
It seeks your acceptance,
With each new endeavor,
And longs to feel your embrace,
In it's moment of surrender.
Like a child who pulls on Mamma's dress,
Asking for a glance,
It begs you to stop and admire,
Give it just a chance.
For when an artist creates,
Or a photographer captures the perfect shot,
Rest assured the spirit there,
Is giving all it's got.

Dog....Gone Happy

Dog....Gone Happy

Happy Memorial Day to ALL! I hope each of you has a wonderful holiday!
My poem today is for 'Dog...Gone Happy'. This piece won second place in one of our local art shows, and is one of my personal favorites!

It's a glorious afternoon,
The red car is in motion,
Our passenger consumed,
With joyous new emotion.
A road trip with his best friend,
And a beautiful sunny day,
There's a ball on the seat,
What game will we play?
The trees become a blur,
As they travel down the road,
The sights and smells delight him,
He's in happy mode!

Good Conversations

Good Conversations

Good morning to all! Today's weather is supposed to be HOT here in Chesterfield, so I am sharing one of my 'beachy' renditions.

Let's all go to the seashore,
Where the conversations flow,
We'll kick off our shoes, and stay awhile,
A fishing we will go!
We can claim our spot,
Set up a chair,
Watch young girls giggle,
With every stare.
We'll have a nice lunch,
Sip a cold drink,
Feel the wind in our hair,
Take time to think.
We might find a hermit crab,
Or a starfish in the sand,
We'll soak up the sun,
What a good time I have planned!

Thunder Is Heard

May 4th, 2013

Thunder Is Heard

This piece is my rendition of 'Thunderous Herd', a play on words to be sure...but I can't help it!

The sunset fills the sky,
As the thunderstorm approaches,
It's brilliant hues reflected,
On everything it touches.
Lightning flashes and thunder roars,
The wind a mighty force,
Sound assaults the rabbit's ears,
Soon he sees it's source.
Dashing for cover,
The herd is in sight,
Their bodies aglow,
With the afternoon light.
Beautiful they are,
So wild and free,
A thunderous herd,
In our storm by the sea.

Painted Ladies

Painted Ladies

Good morning! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend planned! I am giving you a couple of shorter poems today!! My first is for "Painted Ladies", a piece I created after visiting our local botanical gardens. There were two little girls recieving SUCH joy from all of the dancing butterflies, I wanted to capture their moment!


The ladies dance in a field of flowers,
Giggling with glee,
Surrounded by the butterflies,
A delightful sight to see.
With painted faces and ruffled dresses,
The butterflies might compare,
The adornment worn by little girls,
To the beauty of the flowers there.
Painted by the Lord above,
Their wings a work of art,
I hope the floating ladies know,
The joy they bring to a little girl's heart.

Fishy Business

April 26th, 2013

Fishy Business

This one is for all of the mermaid fans out there!

The mermaid anxiously waits,
Bathed in aqua light,
When suddenly she sees,
The loan shark now in sight,
The sunlight lingers,
Upon his dark blue skin,
And evil thoughts reside,
Behind his toothy grin.
He said he would help her out,
But borrower beware,
For every clam you borrow,
Double will be your share.
So be careful little mermaid,
Before you sign in green,
Know the fella you're dealing with,
Things aren't always as they seem.

Crab Pickin

Crab Pickin

Good morning! My next poem/art post is for my 'Crab Pickin' piece. My previous posts (April 4th) have received a lot of veiws, I hope you are enjoying my renditions!

The family gathers by the shore,
Beneath their bright umbrellas,
To reunite and reaquaint,
To discuss the other fellas,
They've brought their coolers and their floats,
Their fishing poles and kites,
They've settled in for some fun,
To last into the night.
The crabs are cleaned and ready,
For a hoedown to commence,
They take their places,one by one,
On their instruments.
Do you think they'll really play?,
Or is it all a joke,
I know,delicious they would be,
After a butter soak!
