Don't Forget To Smile

Don't forget to smile

A smile can kill a thousand frowns
And the mist on a foggy day.
But what it can kill most of all
is sadness where it lay.

Cause when you smile you let loose
all the darkness trapped inside.
Smile's windows open to let light in
so love can radiate and abide

His smile was Love

Love is something that can't be contained
if you truly mean it from your heart.

You can feel genuine love without even
hearing that person utter a word.

You can see it in their smile.



The mouth of the River happiness is a smile.

Hump Day joke: Water

Ya see, two camels walk into a bar, ya see. One camel says to the bartender "Can I have a glass of water. The bartender says, "Whoa dude, don't you have enough water already?" The camel says, "Oh no it's not for me. It's for my friend. He had a dry hump."

Happiness is

Happiness is a measurement of a condition
an ends to a mean
a smile pressed upon a kiss
The state of my mind
A choice

Shine baby SHINE!

Today I'm caught shining the 'O' in POSITIVE.

There are two sides to everything

the good & the bad
the light & the dark
the positive & the negative

In this world, one depends on the other

You must educate yourself about the dark to make your light SHINE brighter

Shine baby SHINE!

On Michael Jackson...

God was definitely using him. I believe long before Michael was born, his soul chose this way to come to us. God sends "angels" to us all the time in different forms. He has to because the problem is we all don't see or hear the same thing. I've always felt that if Michael did not come to us this way, he would of been a great charismatic preacher of some sort. But look at the limiting factor in that. Not everybody believes in certain religions and etc. But music... now THAT is the great communicator. How brilliant is it for God to send his light to us through modern music? Through a humble human being with a simple name, "Michael Jackson". It amazes me every time I think about it.

She looked through the screen door and admired
the pattern the sunlight made through the trees
on the sprawling pavement
sometimes she saw faces, patterns... WORDS

Outside, she stood beneath the tree,
letting the sunlight tickle her face.
That is how it began.
She found her inspiration in the sunlight.

Crescent's Jealousy

oh Crescent
You are not magical and mystical
as my favorite
She is voluptuous, full
and circular like our original shape

She is effervescent and coy
She beckons me to the pool
to look at her reflection
In it I see esteem beauty
playful woes of another day

She loves to instigate
endless peek-a-boo
along Cumulus Row
She leaves me longing
at first blush when her starlit
curtain is drawn

oh Crescent
Your forlorn jealousy
should be stacked, pasted
written on the wind
It is unwarranted yet benign

For you have looked behind yourself
and beheld her
etched kindness
her intimidating haunt and
her incredible gaze
as she dances along the open plain

You long to be something you will never be
most opportune

my favorite

Laissez Faire la Food

(Do not take the food)

Saturday is the day that we always got up
We’d have a croissant, a little coffee in our cup
We’d talk about our plans and make a few
We’d sit at the table, we’d do what lover’s do

Sometimes we’d have orange juice instead of coffee
Sometimes it was cinnamon rolls with hot butter toffee
But no matter the food it is now met with rue
Saturday is just not as delectable without you

I Got the Party Planning Blues

I planned a child's party
To which I was tardy
Oh brother! My job is in jeopardy.

My balloon delight
Caused such a fright
When it popped in the middle of an ice cream fight.

The party was ruined
The birthday girl was boo-hooin'
And her mother shouted, "Oh yes, I'll be suin' "

The life of a party planner
Could never be grander!
After this one I quit. I'm now a panhandler.

That dreaded washing machine

My character hates reality television.

Oh yes, she loves being real but she revels and gets caught up in the masked identity of fantasy. Bold colors, engaging action and bellowing music scores make her tingle with enthusiasm and takes her to distant exotic places where she can no longer hear car horns, bill collectors and the washing machine.


Back to reality.

That dreaded washing machine…

The Spring Show

ah! your sweet tender leaves remind me of spring!
I am green with envy of how you reach out beneath
the crystals
that cover your safe beginnings. I shiver as I observe and marvel
at your lesson. Even though the seasons try to cover your sanctity
and callous
your exterior, that inner spirit precipitates life that can’t help itself.
Thank you for this conjured moment; I look forward to your next show!

Love Life and Laugh Alot!

I love you. Three words that can start a fire.

Inspiration is felt stronger in the morning.

If you think today was good, wait until tomorrow.

A dash of life is never enough.

He was shallow when he went off the deep end, ending a life long obsession with water.

Make her kindness your weakness.

You're the best cure I've ever invented.

If I didn't know I was living this life, I would swear I was looking at a movie.

Do more for LOVE today than yourself.

Let's meet at the intersection of Love and Understanding.


Through the Storm

But I got you baby
forever and a day
Throughout the year

Men have set fire
to ropes of danger
Trapped behind doors,
burned to the core
But I got you
to keep me true
Through the storm


He turned his thoughts into parachutes,
little words that lifted people up.
He thought of life as less dense,
like lemonade in a coffee cup


Soon is not soon enough/ when it comes to seeing you. Tough/ when it comes down to this/ It's you everyday I miss


Fail's request / seen on a 20 x 20 screen / not conducive to / entertainment's behest


The ocean is full of love. Love has done it's part. The sky is full of forgiveness. And love is in my heart.
