Feeling safe

I’ve always been the one 

To run away, afraid 

That’s why I was surprised

When I heard him say

Wow you were really brave 

For a change

All coz he made me feel 

that way…safe

With exuberance


Your everyday life
might not be paradise, and
that’s alright

When you come to realize
it may never be perfect, but
it’s always worth it

Enjoy the simple pleasures
protect your treasures, so
they last forever

~~~

Sunrises and sunsets
never have any regrets, which
we tend to forget

Stay snug as a bug
in the warmth of a hug that
radiates pure love

Sing and dance
Like it’s your second chance
by circumstance

Floss-silk

Her thorns are a mystery
each a sweetbrier
of history

With roots running deep
there’s strength
in her beliefs

She reaches for the sky
no rhymes or reasons
to justify

Thriving in a cold world
fighting for space
to unfurl

Bestowed by unique beauty
I find myself beguilingly
on duty

Barren of emotional leaves
yet still a formidable
tree, needs

Note: These trees are in my neighborhood, I’m not certain what they are, but Google indicates this is a  floss-silk tree common in California.
