Sunday Pause (Paws): It Might Be An Angel

its-sunday-aafbt

Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy some poetry.

I wrote a poem to go along with what I think is an adorable photo of Cino that I recently got with my new camera. I hope you enjoy it. 🙂

IT MIGHT BE AN ANGEL

When I look at that sweet face
I see an angel among this place
For me the word “just” doesn’t exist
Your needs are always high on my list Continue reading

Teaching By Example

I WOULD RATHER

The circus is in town
Everyone is going there
The kids would have a good time
But I would rather teach them to care

Tricks that are sure to amaze
Entertaining the crowd all night
It’s an event for the whole family
But I would rather teach them what’s right

Clowns with big feet & a red nose
Elephants, lions, tigers, & bears
It’s quite the variety show
But I would rather teach them what’s fair

Sunday Pause (Paws): The Conversation

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and hopefully enjoy taking a little time to read a poem I wrote. It’s a conversation between Cino & I.

THE CONVERSATION

You brought me into your home
From that place you set me free
We’ve been together for a while
But do you really know me?

I first saw you online
And then drove miles to adopt you
You convinced me you were the one
With that look and meow I knew

You keep me safe and fed
Even though sometimes you make me wait
Minutes between my meals
Uh hem…I need to set you straight

I love it when you decide
It’s time for you to eat
Your persistent meows and stares
Until you get that treat

Sunday Pause (Paws): Eyes

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and look deep into my eyes. You’re getting sleepy, very, very sleepy. OK, so maybe not but I did write a poem about “eyes.” I hope you enjoy. 🙂

EYES

When you look into my eyes
What is it that you see?
Am I just “another”
Are you truly looking at me?

The gateway to the soul
It seems eyes can reveal
A bit about each of us
And how we may feel Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Butterfly Wings

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, grab a cup of coffee or tea, and take flight with a butterfly.

BUTTERFLY WINGS

Oh you beautiful butterfly
Those wings can take you oh so high
Oh to have those butterfly wings
Oh what joy they must bring

Oh butterfly with wings so great
Can you fly beyond the golden gate?
Please find my dear beloved sis
And give her a big butterfly kiss

Stay Strong

My heart literally breaks for animals and how they are treated in our society by so many. And my new favorite word for anyone that I hear or read about that hurts an animal is jack***. You see, I’m not one who curses, but that seems to be a favorite word of mine lately.

Is it because I’m older and less patient? Is it because my sister passed away and I’m more sensitive? Or maybe it’s both. Whatever the reason I wrote the following short poem to express some of the emotions I have been feeling (swear words not included 🙂 ).

We are their voice…stay strong!

Sunday Pause (Paws): For Paws, Hooves, & Feet

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and come along with me to take a little closer look at a few of the animals I have featured in my banner.

Dana loves animals. Her family adopted Sarge when he was just a puppy and was a beloved family member for years. Here is Dana with him when she was 10 years old. Awww.
