Help, Save Me!


Do you hear it?

It’s frightening!

Scratching, clawing,

as if something buried alive

is trying desperately to survive.

Do you see it?

Common sense and decency,

respect, trust, humility –

are all trying to find their way to light.

They’ve been buried for so long

I’m afraid all hope is gone.

But wait!

I’ll reach out, I’ll be brave –

try to pull them from their grave.

I’ll do my very best to set them free.

Will you?

Filtering Thoughts


In pensive mood, I reminisce –

apply a filter, so to speak,

to events that have made me who I am.

Special times out-number tragedies three to one!

I’m left to question what is yet to be done

when all that’s best in my life

has already happened,

…or has it?

A sunset dinner at Les Bourgeois Winery’s Blufftop Bistro was filled with ambience at its finest – both inside and out. This charming restaurant in Rocheport, MO sits on a hill overlooking the banks of the Missouri river. What a beautiful evening!

We all face tragedies in life. Certain events happen that change and define us forever. That’s when we pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and convince ourselves to get back on track. The road is always uneven; some ruts are just deeper than others.
