If Time Did Stop

Time ticks away by the seconds
Minute by minute, hour by hour
Awake we all, as the sun beckons
Rise from the bed, into the shower

 Starting the day that awaits
Fresh from head to toe
Off to work, or whatever in states
Going here and there, to and fro

But I wonder sometimes
If time came not to be
Also do bells and chimes?
The waves from the sea?

No more songs from birds
No more wind or rain
 Silence, we hear no words?
 Hearts feeling no pain?

Would there be peace
At long last for sure?
Or does life cease
For all to endure




My thanks to The Poetry Palace for this award.


Blessings come from God, and people with love
The award you see, yes the one up above
Has been given to me, for the poem I wrote
“If Time Did Stop”, with lumps in my throat

I wrote it with care, and much in mind
And they who voted, were oh so kind
I write this with love, and appreciation
I accept this award from my, writing station





Times Like These

While going through my muck (my time in ugh!land), there is something that I already knew but had come to realize, that I never should have stopped writing. 


I can’t explain why I completely shut down other than another thing I have come to understand. I’m drained. I believe that it is more than just a matter of months, but quite possibly a matter of years that is the cause. 


It just seems no matter what I do to move forward, I keep getting knocked back down. Now I know that it’s not supposed to be a bed of roses all the time, but come on…it seems a constant barrage. Mind boggling. But I somehow manage to stay above water to avoid drowning. 


Then I open my mail to find that someone else has shown kindness. 


I was recently awarded a Creative Blog Award from Becca Givens. I must apologize to Becca for me taking so long to accept and share the award which I did here





And then there’s Promising Poets’ Parking Lot showing appreciation with this award.      

It’s times like these that help to take some of the muck away. 

From now on, when I get hit, I’ll try to write instead of turning off the switch.

Oh how I wish.

I’ll Take Them

It is better to give than it is to receive.
It is a pleasure for me that I am able to take
part each week in giving of myself
through poetry.

I have been blessed to receive these awards
for giving of myself for something
I truly enjoy doing. 

In my heart I feel as if I don’t deserve
them, but I accept them with honor.

My Participation Awards 

Many thanks to everyone 
who makes all of this possible 

It Is You

I am humbled to receive
Yet another award if you believe
It is I who have done
This which is so much fun

It is not I, no not at all
I have accepted the call
To read, write, enjoy the view
It is not I, it is You



I’d like to take this time to thank everyone for all of your support. I am still learning as we all are. For Life is our teacher and we as students continue to excel. 

My special thanks to JingleThursday Poets Rally, and so many others.
