at times you’re impossible
driving me over the edge
while taking my breath away
dancing that thin line


Monday with the Muse

I do not need cake or
champagne to celebrate the years
bits of magic dazzle me just fine
things like warm smiles, long kisses,
poetry, baby’s breath, belly laughs,
blue skies, and breezy mornings
are all I need to fill my cup

Manic Monday – A Prayer for Exiles

A Prayer for Exiles

captives mourn
in exile here
wisdom teaches us
to rescue them,
give them a safe abode
bright morning,
bring us comfort
from the night and
light to bind the hearts
of all in peace.   


Today’s Manic Monday Three-Way Prompt is based on the Word: Rejoice, the Photo: (a portion of the original) above and the Song: Oh Come, Oh Come Emanuel (lyrics below). When I think of God/Emanuel coming, I think about the innocents that need him most. At least for today, there are many who are still suffering. And so I decided a prayer would do for today’s Manic Monday.  I’m not sure why my thoughts and heart went in an opposite direction with today’s prompt. It’s not exactly an example of rejoicing. But perhaps it’s a means to an end. Peace, kindness and love to you.

O come, O come, Immanuel,
and ransom captive(s) Israel
that mourns in lonely exile here
until the Son of God appear.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Immanuel
shall come to you, O Israel.

2 O come, O Wisdom from on high,
who ordered all things mightily;
to us the path of knowledge show
and teach us in its ways to go. Refrain

3 O come, O come, great Lord of might,
who to your tribes on Sinai’s height
in ancient times did give the law
in cloud and majesty and awe. Refrain

4 O come, O Branch of Jesse’s stem,
unto yourown and rescue them!
From depths of hell your people save,
and give them victory o’er the grave. Refrain

5 O come, O Key of David, come
and open wide ourheavenly home.
Make safe for us the heavenward road
and bar the way to death’s abode. Refrain

6 O come, O Bright and Morning Star,
and bring us comfort from afar!
Dispel the shadows of the night
and turn our darkness into light. Refrain (to)

7 O come, O King of nations, bind
in one the hearts of all mankind.
Bid all our sad divisions cease (in)
and be yourself our King of Peace. Refrain 

Psalter Hymnal (Gray)

weekends are for taking naps
movie marathons and snacks
window shopping, playing apps
Monday comes to soon


December Dodoitsu #15

how many snowflakes does a
heart make, to catch my eye this
wintry night, reminding me
that love’s everywhere


It is a known fact to anyone who knows me that if there is a scattering of rocks, I can be found in the middle of them searching for the heart shaped ones. Over the years I have found hundreds of them. And I have also been known to give them away in hopes to brighten someone’s day. These are no ordinary rocks you see. They’ve been battered and chiseled, losing parts of themselves to become that familar shape, a heart, a symbol of love. I found my first one when I needed it most. I’ll never forget how it made me feel. I’ll never forget how I felt when I gave that precious lump of limestone away to someone who needed it more than me. I find them everywhere now. Heart shaped rocks, seashells, leaves, flower petals, and sometimes, clumps of snow. It helps me to remember what matters most. It reminds me I’m never alone. Love is everywhere you know. Peace to you ❤️
