Love’s Piece Is Love’s Peace

Love’s piece cannot define that which it exhibits with love’s peace

Love is by the worth it gives as receiving to love

Smoldering hearts heated cores to burn for love

Sensations to ends of nerves endings heightened

Yet be it exuberance, to still the senses to pause, reflections

Rain Storms

A popup rain storm is one that is not predicted by the weather personnel. When the conditions are right, they just appear. The lightning strikes, the thunder, the high winds and of course the rain.


Yes storms can do damage that can be costly, but they can also be beneficial. Breaking lose dead tree branches, clearing the air of pollen and pollution. 


When the storm is over and the damages are assessed, it can’t be denied that everything looks cleaner, refreshing and you can smell it in the air. 


I guess it can be said that storms in our lives serve the same purpose even if we don’t see it that way. It is not pleasant to be caught in a rain storm without shelter of any kind and the same can be said for the storms that develop in our lives. But how can anyone deny that once our life storm passes, we feel refreshed and stronger….triumphant. 


Do I welcome or seek these storms into my life?….no way! But I cannot deny that it is a good feeling when all is said and done. 

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





Refreshed

This is what it kinda feels like right now. I had talks with I believe are some key people very recently. I was able to be candid and straight forward. I couldn’t believe how much better I felt when I was finished after each conversation.

Apparently this was long overdue. 

I don’t know what the end result will be when all is said and done, but what I do know….I feel as if I can now really move forward….no matter what happens.  

I have my sights set on other key changes/additions that I am sure will help to bring me to a state of even more stability and the want to continue in a positive direction.

Are you still with me?……I sure hope so.

Life’s Changes

Endurance is different for everyone, in many different situations spanning so many astounding lifestyles. Someone could look at my current goings on and say this is a cake walk. Then there is that one who looks and has understanding and wonder how hard it really can be….simply by the change in the flow of things on my blog.


Endurance plays a key role in how any given moment, be it short or long standing has affects on….gosh, where do I begin?….this can go as deep as the soul of a person or as shallow as a mosquito’s touch. 


For me I did endure, and I’m not out of the woods, but it was/is a real struggle this time around. I did learn a few things along the way and that is always a good thing….right?….of course it is. I’m in the process of learning how to adjust to the escalated stress level. Cutting out a few things from my daily work eating habits helped a lot. I was having an affair with sweet pastry….and it was very good, but nearly eliminating that portion of the day was very helpful. 


When you’re dealing with all aspects of life such as work, home, romance or the lack thereof, emotions strewn together like spaghetti except it seems there is no end. That makes for an emotional roller coaster equipped with all the “fun” surprises that help to make these rides even more exciting!

~~~a nice peaceful sigh~~~

Then there’s the moment I find out that it isn’t really my 200th blog post. What I do find out is that the drafts count as posts…..albeit not published, something I didn’t pay any attention to. In the same post where I proudly announced my 200th blog post, I also mentioned I was about to do something I thought was somewhat down the road. Well I guess it is still down the road because I was going to write a poem on a theme and for various reasons, that didn’t happen. 

So life does tick tick tick away filled with its surprises.

Sunday Morning Ride

It’s really been hot the past few days and I had decided not to ride my bike. Today it’s a bit cooler in the mornings, which I prefer to ride, so off I go.

This is my first pit stop along the way.

This is Town Center of Virginia Beach. It’s a nice area with places to eat, areas to sit outside and enjoy the view or your company. It can get pretty busy here.

Here I arrive at my destination…Mount Trashmore. For those who don’t know, it is a landfill converted into a park…a rather nice one at that.

This is the Mount Trashmore emblem located at the top of the hill. You can find kite flyers here during windy times. Lots of people use the hill for working out. The guy on the left for example is walking backward down the hill. Some jog all the way around the top instead of using the path.

I’m not sure if they are together, but backward they go.

Of course we can’t forget the children who want to enjoy the play area before the sweltering heat sets in.

Here I have my stuff set up after the ride around the park after arriving, preparing for this post. It is a really nice breeze blowing to help squash the heat. I’m gonna be heading back after I post this. It’s about fifteen miles round trip. This is my second trek here since I got the bike.

Time to head back….
