My Garden Christmas Eve

MY GARDEN ON CHRISTMAS EVE

Carrots from my garden
will be part of Christmas dinner.
To be gardening on Christmas Eve
makes me feel like a winner.

We still have roses blooming,
primrose are showing their heads.
Birds are noisily feeding
before they seek their beds.

A Downy Woodpecker, Hummingbirds,
Chickadees, Pine Siskins, Juncos,
Sparrows along the hedgerow,
are all birds that come and go.

Soggy lawn but lush and green,
kale is still prolific.
To live here on Canada’s south west coast
I feel blessed, it is terrific.

Merry Christmas Everyone

THANKSGIVING SUNDAY

2015 Oct 11 s

THANKSGIVING SUNDAY

On this Thanksgiving Sunday
I gaze out to the east
at another lovely sunrise,
to my eyes and soul, a feast.

I’d like the peace and quiet
I’m experiencing right now
to be felt worldwide in others
as we all connect somehow.

I’m grateful I’m alive and well
in my spirit and my soul.
I can overcome aches and pains
that make me feel less than whole.

Today we’ll cook a turkey
to share with family and a friend.
It will be a fun and happy time
as our personalities blend.

Some of us have challenges
that are difficult to face,
but we’ll be guided through them
with loving support and Grace.

Happy Thanksgiving

THANKSGIVING 2015

THANKSGIVING 2015

As greens change to yellow and red
and daylight succumbs more to night,
I appreciate all that autumn provides,
scenery becomes a delight.

Sunrise into a striped cloudy sky,
outlining trees with pink, gold and blue,
made me take some photographs
of that spectacular view.

I enjoy early morning quiet time
before busyness starts once more.
Time to energize and prioritize,
so I enjoy tasks, not make them a chore.

We’re starting a long weekend,
it’s Canadian Thanksgiving.
Stay safe and travel well my friends.
Be kind, loving and forgiving.

Be grateful for all around you—
people, places and things.
Don’t forget to say “Thank you”
and return the smile that brings.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Canada Day

HAPPY CANADA DAY

July 1st in a heat wave,
Happy Canada Day.
Take time to honour our country
and celebrate in your own way.

We have so much to be grateful for.
Start each day with gratitude
for all the freedoms we possess,
our health relies on a good attitude.

Natural wonders are within reach
mountains, rivers, lakes, the sea,
beautiful trees, flowers and fields
All available for you and for me.

Let’s celebrate each other –
neighbours, family and friends.
with a smile, handshake, a cheery “Hello”,
or a phone call to make amends.

Be safe when you are traveling,
be courteous, helpful and kind.
Be proud you are a Canadian
and keep gratitude on your mind.

Happy Canada Day

Summer Solstice and Father’s Day

Summer Solstice and Father’s Day

June 21, 2015

Summer Solstice and Father’s Day
two reasons to celebrate.
To Dads everywhere, blood-related or not,
your role’s important, make it top rate.

You’re observed, appreciated, admired
by young people in your life,
some of you doing it on your own,
others with support of your wife.

What you say and what you do,
how you react to what’s going on
is how children perceive you—
what they’ll remember when they move on.

Being gentle, kind and affectionate
are qualities you can share.
Being approachable is key,
letting them know you’ll always be there.

Make time to give a compliment
for all small tasks they achieve,
don’t let goals won go unnoticed,
let them know that, in them, you believe.

Use your inner wisdom as guidance.
Be ready to offer support
through all their perceived challenges
in academia, friendships and sport.

They need to feel loved and protected
and that home is a good place to be.
Tell them you love them often
and you’ll get love reciprocally.

Happy Father’s Day, enjoy your summer.
