Many thanks!

 

 

 

Thank so much to everyone who has visited my blog and

liked” and/or become a follower.

Thanks also to those who just stopped by. I truly

appreciate each and every one of you!

I am happy to say that

I have reached the magical number of 100!

Yes, 100 followers that is!

I could not have accomplished this without you,

and a huge accomplishment it is, as I have not been

in this blogging game very long. How awesome

it is to share an arena with so many talented

and like-minded people who seem to get me.

It has been a pleasure to make your acquaintance

and I look forward to growing with you and

learning from you as I grow in my own writing.

I will strive to continue to bring you content

that you can thoroughly enjoy!

I am inspired by all of you! Many blessings and love to you all!

Every day is Mother’s Day

 

 

A designated day to commemorate

all the wonderful mothers.

A nice thought but these women

are mothers every day of the week.

Not just for one day

that has been decided on

as “the” day.

Mothers across the world

are holding things down

taking care of their families.

Some in school and holding down a 9-5

A friend, a daughter and so much more.

Mothers get up and do their duty

consistently and without a second thought.

Countless moments of frustration

and despair, as theirs is a huge undertaking.

And not everyone is a great mother.

But at the end of the day

they do the best they can

with what they have.

After all, that’s what a mother is…

one who makes things happen

no matter what the odds are.

A thankless job, motherhood can sometimes be

But a huge “thank you” is indeed in order.

Burning Embers of Passion

 

Burnt orange embers glow endlessly,

beneath the smokey flames

that we have created.

Our starving souls hunger for

untamed spirits to intertwine

The smoke of the flames smolder feverishly.

Our hearts searching and yearning for more.

Unquenchable and insatiable

are we, for we burn in eternity

Through hearts of fire,

driven by passion-filled

supreme love and desire.

Fem-Flirtation

 

The wink of an eye, the gentle sway of her hips,

the enticing way that words fall from her lips.

A sideways glance, the hint of a smile,

all eyes on her, a sight so worthwhile.

From girlish giggles to womanly laughter,

she’s the main attraction ~ the before and the after.

A jazzy walk with a stylish flair,

the icing on the cake, her beautiful hair.

You’ve caught her attention but only for a moment,

the ball’s in her court ~ she definitely owns it.

Good Sense

 

Sometimes when we are in love,

we seem to lose our good sense.

Foolishly, we let down all our guards,

giving up our means of defense.

We want to relax and bask in the glory,

of the wonderful love we have discovered.

Pushing caution aside and forgetting  our fear,

the real person in us is uncovered.

Before we know it, we’re in so deep,

it would take a crane to dig out.

If only we had listened to our inner voice,

we could have thought before taking this route.

Good sense is something we all should possess,

and for our sake, we should cherish.

If we don’t make good use of this gift we’ve been given,

we are sure to perish.

The best for me is you

 

I know with all my heart ~ the best for me is you,

although I don’t admit it, deep inside I know it is true.

I’m afraid of the feelings I have for  you ~ they’re growing everyday,

At times I’d like to run and hide and escape the easy way.

The gentleness of your ways ~ the kindness that pours from your heart,

makes me want to stay around, and in your life be a vital part.

The patience you have shown is more than anyone should ask,

just dealing with me daily can be quite an exhausting task.

That’s why it’s very clear that the best for me is you,

I anticipate much happiness and all the things we have yet to do.
