Everything I See ~

The wind whispers your name 
Stars begin to blink into focus 
I wonder how many wishes have
come through to those with dreams?

The sky reminds me of your eyes 
Birds awaken happy and praising 
I wonder how many spirits live in 
each creature of the earth?

The sun shines like your smile 
Dewdrops slide from leaf to leaf
I wonder how many tears have fallen
upon these radiant flowers?

I wonder why in all my life 
You seem to appear in all living things?
Everything I see reminds me of you.

I miss you mama
and love you 
every single day of my life

I am sorry I have not been visiting any of those 
wonderful blogs and lovely people that I so enjoy.
I still am not feeling well and have a Dr's appt 
for this coming Thursday. I have confidence my 
Dr will be able to find the cause of all the pain.
But I am actually more concerned for my sister 
than myself as she has to have a breast biopsy 
this Wednesday. Please, keep her in your good thoughts 
and prayers. And say a little one for me as well.
I hope to get by to do some visiting of your blogs today.
Happy New Year to everyone.
I wish all of you many blessings in 2014.



  1. Such a gift and a blessing that you have your poetry to express deep thoughts about your Mom and Dad, and all else that enters your mind. I love the way you relate to nature. It's something about looking at it and getting a feeling that it contains all the delights and mysteries of life.

    You and your sister have my sincere prayers and best wishes as you cope with health issues. I'm looking forward to hearing about the progress that each of you will have. Just get over the hurdles. Hugs.

  2. ps. We all understand that blogging has to take a back seat now and then. Though I love hearing from you, please don't worry about it.

  8. A moving poem. And the photo has a familiar aspect --I have lots of pictures of my own mother in front of a classroom chalkboard in the 1960s. From both poem and picture I get an image of someone dedicated to encouraging what is good, positive and useful in people's lives. That sort of influence never ends --certainly a legacy of strength and health, for you and those you love. Best wishes.

    A healthy New Year to you and your sister!

  15. Margie,

    I find great comfort in your words, as I always consider my mother in many instances. I think about her in ways you have written here in your poem too. My mother died over eighteen years ago, and I bitterly miss her every day.
