Just for Today (A Poem of Thanksgiving)




Today I offer a few words I wrote back in 2011 when I started blogging and sharing my thoughts online. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, going through…may these words be words that edify, and multiply thanksgivings in your soul.



Coffee with Poppa




The blonde haired boy walks tall past each of the singly occupied tables with a sweet confidence that defies his small stature. Finally, he rests his juice box on the seventh table, climbs onto the chair, legs dangling, slides into a seated position, immediately scanning the room with keen blue eyes. A wall barrier separates the seating in this coffee shop from the ordering counter.

Although there is no adult in sight, the boy begins to call out, in a steady rhythm,

“Poppa, Poppa, Poppa”.

Happy Monday, friends! I’m delighted you are here. Will you join me at Faith ‘n Friends today where I am serving up a coffee shop tale of prayerful proportion!

Rise Up America (A Prayer of Hope)

I wrote this poem this morning…it came to me as a song. I am not a musician, but what can I say…I just write what comes. God bless America. Thank you Lord, for this great country, for all the sacrifices and bloodshed it has endured. For all the hope it has shared, for the dreams, visions and hopes you Our Father have had for this adopted child.


Daughter Fall (A Poem about Letting Go)


Poetry can be a snapshot of the day, a moment, a memory, a season. It so often captures what I find hard to articulate in essay form, and like paintings leaves room for varied conclusion. I have written this poetic response for my blogging sister and friend Karen, for her Tuesday at Ten prompt. It was perfect because I had already captured the morning in images by the ocean, but this prompt allowed me to approach with words the unspoken emotions pumping through my mom heart today.

I invite you to have a look at the amazing pictures (amazing because RI is a beautifully photographic state, not because I am a great photographer! ) I grabbed and linked for you to enjoy: Narragansett, RI/Fall.

I hope you enjoy the poem and the pictures…


Random Journal Day #56 with Sylvia Robertson




Welcome to Random Journal Day!

I am sorry this post is a bit late today, but would you believe I was trapped in an elevator? With a vampire? Um…yeah, NO. Would you believe I’m late because the Great Pumpkin  actually showed up? Um…yeah, NO …again. OK, I am sorry I am late. I really don’t have a good reason or excuse. Besides, better late than never, right?

I am not sure how I first found Sylvia Robertson’s Blog, but I fell in love with the loveliness of her shared books and and pages immediately. However, there was one problem…her blog was very vague about the lovely person behind the dashboard. Eventually, I connected with the mysterious writer and invited her to be our Featured Journal Writer,  and enjoy for yourself, her Sylvr Pen. You are in for a real treat, friends!

Without further adieu, please welcome, Sylvia.
