Sometimes I growl

image

 

When the “F” word
Is at the tip of my tongue
And I’m fighting hard
To shove it back in,
Sometimes I growl!

When the anger builds
And I’m consciously
Trying to count to ten,
Sometimes I growl.

When she knows
I’m at my limit,
But she keeps
Pressing all my buttons,
Sometimes I growl.

When frustration is
The “F” word of the day
And nothing’s going right,
Sometimes I growl.

When the walls
Of this tiny room
Feel like they’re closing in,
Sometimes I growl.

When I want to cry
But I’m tired of the tears
And just ready for a turning point,
Sometimes I growl.

When pent up desire
turns to agony

And needs an escape
Lest I burst,
Sometimes I growl.

When I’ve done all I can
And there’s nothing more
I can do,
Sometimes I growl.

Like a mama bear
Frustrated with her cubs
Who just don’t seem to understand,
Yes,  sometimes I growl.

Parting is such sweet sorrow

image

 

Today, I placed many of my treasured possessions, into the hands of others. They served me well. They gave much joy. I loved them dearly. I was reluctant to part with them, but delicately placed them into the hands of others in hopes their new owners would love them as much as I did.

Letting go lightened my financial burden but warmed my heart knowing that someone might also be enriched by my gifts.

Recycle the treasures, share the love.
Letting your love flow freely allows it to float into the arms of someone who may truly appreciate it. In so doing, you too will be richly blessed.

My darling,
I must let go of you now,
For I must toil for our daily bread,
But I will return to you in the morrow,
For it is you to whom my heart belongs.

My friends,
I must say goodbye this season,
For I must resume my duties after good tidings,
But I will cherish our festivities,
For tis you I choose to be my brethering.

My precious treasure,
I must let go of you now,
Though you have given me much joy,
So you may give pleasure to another,
For in giving shall I also receive.

My happiness,
I must part with you for this period,
As my heart is full of grief,
But I will see you on the other side,
For tears bring cleansing and clarity.

My sadness,
I must bid you adieu,
As I exchange you for laughter,
But fear not I will visit again
For true joy comes from understanding pain.

To return,
One must first depart,
So as you read these words
Don’t be sad that this poem ends
For it only signifies there is a new one to begin
And we shall all meet again.

Farewell my darlings, I love you all.

Hugs,
A
😔🌷☺

In flight

image

 

Between the wing and the engine;
The sound of flight up high in the clouds;
Returning to what once was home;
In hopes of taking one last glance
Of a life filled with both pleasure and pain.

Turning the leaf of one chapter
In anticipation of what wonders lie ahead.
Seeing every word, reading between the lines;
Blurred vision slowly becoming clear.
A new chapter has begun.
