Luggage

I fit in the carry on!!

Yes you do,

And I wish I could take you,

But sometimes we have to carry those we love in our hearts

and not on our luggage.

Dog meets Crow

Nose to beak,

Befriend what you seek.

Safe

The thunder and the lightning were outside,

The rain was too.

The walls were sturdy,

And the roof was new…

But the still the little dog shook.

Sometimes feeling safe on the inside is hard,

And we need others to show us how,

Or to simply hold us when we shake.

Glee v Joy

glee v joy

“Do not confuse joy with glee”

said the old dog to the pup,

after the latter had stolen the elder’s bone.

For while you have the bone,

I still have the joy of seeing you with it.

Ruffles

Be proud of your ability to ruffle feathers…

All good duck mother know it’s the only way to lead.

Don’t be afraid to strut your stuff

Sweet

We all need a soft place to lay our head and dream.

Cycles of Joy

The lemon tree is full of green lemons ripening slowly in the sun.

The leaves are sparse,

Having been eaten by caterpillars .

The chrysalis, looking like a turd, hangs empty

As Joy emerges….

As large as my open hand.

.

And then She arrives and begins laying eggs…
