I am thrilled to accept this beautiful award from

Whispers Online Magazine for Women


to My World of Words


I love the beauty of the sea and the sky with their many shades of power. I love the beauty of music and dance. I love the beauty of a genuine smile and all that it shares. Come share my loves with me...


...and I will share my thoughts and dreams with you...

Speak to me of quiet places
Where peace is seen on children's faces
And love is felt like summer's heat
As kindness sings and spirits meet.
 
Let me glimpse that place of peace
Where anger ends and battles cease;
A paradise at once it seems
Of fantasy and poet's dreams.
 
I need to taste the joy of love
As antidote to unheard of
Atrocities and bitterness
That darken hearts of humaness.
 
Perhaps the search begins within
As longing makes a change begin;
So I will chase infinity
To that island of serenity.

DAWN

Dawn awakens day

as giant pitchers pour sunbeams

from heaven's hand.

Sunflowers smile greetings

and pine needles sparkle in the glow

til salmon colored sunset

liquefies day into night,

and daylight

is stashed away once more.

Absence of light...

cold as cubes of ice...

til morning light

cracks the curtain of night

once more


SUMMER NIGHTS

The warmth of summer nights inside the mind

Lends soothing comfort, lifting humankind...

Replacing days of icy fingered hate

With gentle hands that rehabilitate.

No longer speaking words that so confined


That all who heard were left both deaf and blind

To any chance of learning or to find

Forgiveness for mistakes that isolate.

The warmth of summer nights inside the mind


Affords the opportunity to wind

The fragile strands of love that tightly bind

Our lonely souls together and create

A world in which our seasons celebrate.

Accepting without judging has defined

The warmth of summer nights inside the mind.


HIDDEN BEAUTY

storm clouds hiding light

flowing darkly over seas

while behind the mist

stars are dancing merrily

with night-sky's crescent guardian


DEMONS

As fever wrapped herself around my child

And burned his brow and made his world unclear.

He ran from tigers claws beside his bed

And nothing said could make them disappear.

Though all alone the two were in the room,

The demons of the night would not depart

Til with the dawn her grip on him was loosed,

And calm returned to mother's anxious heart.
