Always Amused

Heartfelt laughter filled the air.

Crisp with sounds of fun and cheer.

Finding a moment or two

To look at the world and laugh. It’s true.


Always amused by the way the light filters

Through the glass on a clear morn.

How the patterns resemble hearts, catterpillars, squiggly lines

which remind me of the early drawings that hung on the refrigerator.

Smiling at that. Amused at the fact, the sun can deliver a memory

worth savoring, shift slightly and create something new.


Always amused by the way the mind works in undulating patterns.

Appearing random, but intricately laced together to form a life

of pleasure, woven through the tapestry of time, beating to a rhythm

uniquely mine. A rhythm easily and always amused.


Filling the air with laughter and joyous noise.

Enough to bring this life a glorious choice.

The choice to remain always amused.

The Unfolding Of A Day

Thankful it starts.

Grateful in our hearts.

Prayers to those who need it most.

Prayers to those who might not know.

Gratitude for the rising sun.

Grateful for the day has begun.

Smiling, holding space for what?

Laughter and a lighter heart.

Condolences to those who need.

Quick smiles and long hugs.

Love everything so much.

Even when it gets hard.

Gratitude still drives the car.
