behold face in glass
red, blue, orange veins straining
wanting to explode

Brightest Star

Mind full of my cares
Today’s errands
Tomorrow’s to do list

Hand tired, listless   
Loads of my laundry to do
Multi-tasking all the time

I look up to see gloden sun
Serenely splashing its yellow light
Across blue canvas, green fields.

Reminding me of cheerful spirit
of my frail aunt, a widow  
taking care of poor, abandoned
street children with laughter in her eyes
and light step in her gait

I keep still and breathe slowly
The quiet of the day  
Heart warmed by brightest star

Haiku: Lullaby

night sang melodies
twinkling stars chimed a verse too
eyes drooped in slumber

Move on

It is a holiday today in Canada; a long weekend.
I have been smiling lately because I have been writing a lot
and meeting new friends in the writing and poetry community.

I believe that you can always start again; like it is a new day. 
Let go of yesterday's hurts and disappointments.
Move on today.
