Playful Imagination
Playful Imagination
Today, I felt you on the breeze
You gave my heart a warming squeeze;
I hope our paths will intertwine
To see your eyes smiling in mine,
Laughing with all kinds of weather
As kindred spirits together
We will have our season in time
And you'll be my reason to rhyme!
Until we are a matching pair
We'll learn what is and isn't fair;
On our own little adventures
We'll learn which are the better doors;
So when the wind wills our spirits
We will find each other culprits,
Holding our missing love story,
Rooted and supple like a tree.

Middle Child
“Quiet down!” Deborah McPherson yelled as she came in her front door.
As the babysitter, I was surrounded by her three children in a state of interrupted chaos.
After leaving her clutching position on my legs Milly, Deborah’s middle child, scampered over to her mom and exclaimed energetically, “I’m normal!”
I tried not to laugh, especially when Deborah grimaced and said, “It’s time for you to clam down.”
I instantly stiffened up and tried to remember she didn’t mean me, she meant Milly.
Her two sons, one older than Milly in fourth grade and the other younger and in kindergarten, were quiet as rodents in comparison to Milly. The younger son whimpered and whined about losing a toy. The elder son, David, stood quietly, observing his mother’s entrance like not even a change of expression—except maybe slight relief.
Whenever Deborah reprimanded her children, I felt like their misbehavior was my fault. What was worse, I didn’t

Pictures of Me and You
I watch you climb towards me now.
On the ascent I wait for you.
You are below from where I’m perched,
and blurry, indiscernible,
too hard to see, so I flitter
away to the ocean you love.
I wait for you above the tide,
but the water reaches my feet.
So I dabble my toes in wet
sand that buries my feet so deep
I’m trapped, watching birds with envy.
They fly free in the air above.
I join their flight, searching the skies
for you, my love. Can you see me?
You are the glow around the sun.
You brighten the world and my life.
But I’m flying alone in dark
and you aren’t near to comfort me.
Hold me, darling, and don’t let go.
I’m stuck inside a cage of life
and I need to hold on with you.
Let my feelings tumble over,
as irrational as they are.
Can you love me unfailingly?

Just be
“Just be. To just be.”
She runs away, hair and dress
streaming, flying behind her.
A daisy filled field ends in
sky with clouds and forever
blue beyond. Where freedom lies
like it always does.
Red hair flashes in golden
sunlight and exposes bare
white feet, arms, and hands glowing
with heat. Sun and horizon
are before her as she runs.
A tea-stained color covers
the pages of the open
book. A thought or hope to be—
“Just be,” she whispers.
Freedom is ahead and hope
no matter what the past was.
Both her red hair and white dress
dance and flow as the wind wills,
only restrained from flying
away in the sky.
The yellowing sky with clouds
and the green grass that is brown
are dreams in a book’s pages.

I will write a great poem that will live longer than me.
I will write a novel that travels farther than the restraints of this world.
I will express myself through art and someone will listen and hear.
I will learn how to help more than hurt.
I will love regardless of the consequences.
I will overcome my fears and throw myself into a worthy cause...or two.
I will live life, instead of just surviving.

Wake Up and Sigh

Plans for me often go awry,
which may indicate I should live life on the fly,
while I write stories from clouds in the sky.
All around my darting eye
each broken road opens a new path to try.
I will never stop asking why.
Hello, for me, is like goodbye.

A lucky star dropped on earth one night, and it asked me,"What do you want? A million dollars, or a true friend?" I chose a million dollars.....because I already got you.*Send this to your truest friends of DA; if you get this back you're a true friend!
