It’s a misty
November
evening.
Light the fire
and stare.
As we
thoughtfully
thaw
and dream
wistfully
of summer!

poem from my heart; then I
Am ready to start!

I am teaching a book about a war
In my English class this month.
It’s main character is a young
Child soldier and it shares how
He does not want to be there and
How he desperately tries to just survive in a world which has gone so crazy all around him. My goal is to teach this month about heroes and I see that I find that in choosing this story, that I already have done so. As we all read this vividly terrifying account , which has been based upon the true story of others, we all cannot help but feel ever so grateful that we are only witnessing this as a group of readers. I pray that our big, beautiful world will find
peace one day very soon, so
that none of our children in the world over, ...

She forgot what she would say
When she felt an odd twinge-
Then she took herself away
To determine what happened.
He, & his busy self doing it all-
When his heart hurt like hell.
A colleague insists get checked!
He has arrived to the emergency
in time to have a heart attack.
It’s a shock; so strange to see—
How many of us care for others
& forget the person known as me.

As I arrive home and park I am caught,
I hear the sweetest birdsong of the day!
The sun still shines in that corner spot.
It seems sparrows wish sing her away!
This golden eve’s made much warmer
I’m heartened by their exuberant glee!
As I take a peek they end their song-
To my dismay & fly away magnificently!

Do you do like me?
Invest yourself in
everything you see?
Or do you do like he
Run from all you see?
Do you do like she
Block all that is mean?
Or what do you do?
How are you acting
Exactly like you?
I wonder this, too...
Am I imprisoned
Or am I simply a
free spirit
Just like you!

Snow arrived
again yesterday!
The rain froze in
the white sky.
Even I have to say,
how lovely it is
As I wipe it away.
Snow arrived
again yesterday!
I wonder if this time
it’s here to stay.

Somehow it’s good to return home
after such  a busy week on the go.
I find I realize things I didn’t know;
And it’s of great comfort to me.

I often feel a secret shame
for all the gifts that I have.
I wear them like the bane
of a bittersweet salve.

Not sure why I do this.
Having anything is okay.
I don’t  begrudge anyone else~
except myself in some way.

I know I have worked hard.
For all that I have received.
So feeling  that I am deserving
is what I wish I believed.

I’m told I’m at the top of my game.
I hope that one sweet day I’ll see-
In the meantime, I can’t help but
wonder if anyone ever feels like me.

We talk about the things that scare us on the news and in the world today.
It really helps us to share this because
we find comfort in what others say.
We see the world can be a scary place.
But it also can be one of such beauty.
I am trying to notice the good in case
I think it’s an important, great duty.
So to all the souls that are raging and struggle with day’s events & trouble,
I hope you find a little peace today.
To those who send love and light
I thank you for the good you create!

I wish men who
wish to hurt women,
would feel exactly
what that woman
feels at that time.

I wish women who
wish to hurt men,
would feel exactly
what that man
feels at that time.

I wish a child
who wishes to
hurt another child
would feel exactly
what that child
feels at that time.

Then perhaps in
that second of grief
would then change
their own beliefs
and that would
be the last time.

They told their stories, filled with
Inexplicable, challenge and pain.
They recounted some hardships,
Yet, they were now smiling again!
These brave newcomers from so far—
Their resilience is so extraordinary!
They are now so happy where they are!
I was captivated by their good humour,
And the love in their great, big hearts
For Canada, my country, of new starts!

He told me that he
was wearing his pain.
In fact, that his
friends were, too.
It’s what happens
after many years
of not fitting in.
And it’s what
many will do.  
It’s explains a lot
and I think that
maybe  this I
already knew.  
I have seen this
before, and it
was something
I used to do.
Now I am just
digging in, and
releasing the past.
I am seeing that
for every nail
in my back,
is just an awful
distraction that
is leading me
off my path.
So now I redirect
my focus to
the things I wish
wish to see then
I find happiness
is coming back to me!

He didn’t know
what he wanted
But then again,  
neither did she.
He did know what
he didn’t want. &
Interestingly,
So did she!

Interesting how things can go-
From just one day to the next.
You stress because you don’t know.
When it all falls apart, we’re vexed .

Change; it’s different & unexpected.
Not sure just why at all though-
When we  feeling so unprotected,
Often we go farther than we’d know.

Good Thursday morning to us all.
Feeling happy about raking leaves
Before our second, early snowfall!
Getting back into the world it seems.
Feeling so grateful and a bit magical!

On this cool October morning I lie in bed. I contemplate the day as it will be. I am praying for only gentle distractions and to finish raking the leaves. The sudden snow was melted by cold continuous rains and we have all been given time to do our autumn cleanups again. It’s only 8:47 am and I am aware of the minutes I waste. I need to get my house in order for I have company tomorrow in my place.

It snowed yesterday
on the 3rd of October.
It was the first
snow of the year.
It’s a shock we say-
Even though it’s a
Surprise every year.
It’s not like we don’t
know what’s coming.
It’s a bit like the
realization of
our worst fear!
Most of us feel much
better when she arrives
later in the year.
I have to admit I do, too
dread the white stuff.
But no matter how many
first snows I see, even I  
Must acknowledge this is
Nature’s beautiful mystery.

October dreams seem so cool.
Leaves release their branches.
I find myself back at school,
Grateful for second chances.

Autumn is now proving to me-
Joy’s truly around every corner!
The sun says she shines for me
As she creates a new order!

We’ve had many days of cold rain.
The thought of winter is so scary!
Not sure we want to be cold again.

A little bird flies in my heart.
She flutters and tickles my ribs.
Whenever I feel somewhat anxious,
Of my worries, she claims dibs.
A little bird flies in my heart.
I think that’s where she lives.
A guardian to start, as needed,
It’s her hope to me she gives.
