There are days when...

There are days when

I just want to sit on lake's shore

reading, writing poetry

while sipping on a warm cup

of Earl Grey tea

watching the ducks

flitter about their play

and reminisce about long lost loves

Then, there are days

that I just want to go to Haiti

and do what I can to help.

Wednesday, January 13, 2010's complicated

No one ever said it was easy
we go up, we go down
around and around
can't quite figure out how we got there...
need to take the time to stop, listen and learn
in the end it will always turn out
one way or the other
and if it doesn't turn out
the way you expected
then turn it into a piece of art,
frame it, so you'll always have it
to look back on, and remember
to never go that way again.

Thanks for the lesson Dad.
