Not “Just Another Day”

20180805_175119536_iOS (1)

Every day’s a new day

Not “just another day.”

Offering possibilities . . .

Whether sunshine, snow or rain.

Moments to laugh,

To dance and prance and sing;

Moments to think

About basically everything.

So enjoy every moment of this completely, brand new day

Revel growing into the best human you can be in every mind, body and soul way.

Because that’s why we are here — to live, work, love and grow

Guided by God’s loving light

Figuring out how to love sow.

America’s Moral Compass


America voted in evil to its congress

In the form of Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar, who make no bones of their fondness

For terrorist groups who teach hate of Jews and Israel

They disseminate their hate because it helps them feel swell.

How sad that America’s moral compass has lost

Its direction and morality in its voters’ box.

I pray that Americans now recognize the demolition

These women have in mind for their congressional mission.

Their singular plan is to stoke the flames of antisemitism again

To bring another Holocaust to Israel, like the one through which my father lived.

I pray they do not ever get close to their goal

Of turning congress into another human antisemitic shoal.

A duplicate of the United Nations hateful rot

Who meet seemingly for one purpose: Against Israel to plot.

Please, God, help America vote these women out.

For hate has no place in America — May this be every American’s shout!

Something Good


Something good we all can do

To battle racism, hate, antisemitism and imbue

Love, understanding, truth, empathy and compassion.

Is model and teach these beautiful fashions.

For if we do this, we save the next generation

From a life stoked with hate, and an Earth of hateful nations.

So if we want our children to learn love, happiness and joy

We must teach them to never hate any girl or boy

No matter their color, religion or sexual choices

In doing this, we give them loving voices

And isn’t that what we all want for them?

To live in a world full of love and happy kin?

Human Haters

Human haters . . .

Who are they?

Your neighbor? Friend? Sister? Brother? Aunt? Uncle?

All of the above? None of the above?

And why? Why are they haters?

They were taught.

To hate the one that is not the same . . .

The one whose skin is a different hue . . .

The one with less money — More money — A bigger home — No home —

The immigrant — The refugee . . .

The Jew — the Muslim — the Hindu — the Buddhist — the Christian — the Catholic — or the Protestant

There is no good reason to teach hate.


One is not born hating another.

One must be taught.

Humanity must stop teaching hate, and instead teach: That beneath our skin beats the same human heart,

That each of our hearts are alike.

That inside each of our physical bodies resides an everlasting soul light

That that soul light connects us to one another

And to all living things.

We need to teach that the time is now to BE one seamless life light,

To begin healing our human souls

And the Planet on which we reside.

We must do this before the last bee’s flown, the last flower’s bloomed,┬áthe last cricket’s chirped.

Now is the time to begin the healing.

New Beginnings

Tammy & Dolley in the Grand Canyon

Life is such a roller coaster

The unexpected becomes expected, and that becomes life’s place holder.

So when we find ourselves starting anew

After so many hurdles, so many unsavory brews

All we can do is try to keep our footing

Through the challenges and the off-puddings.

I’m so glad life’s been a rough ride.

I wouldn’t be the woman I am now able to abide

By God’s plan instead of my own

For (S)He’s the one who knows how to grow my spirit before returning me home.

Crazy Miracles

Screenshot (418)Screenshot (424)

Nineteen years ago I used to drive past

A yellow and white house in Potomac, quite slowly, not fast.

I’d forgotten all about that sweet little place

Till I went looking for a new Virginia home space.

Twas then that I tried and tried as I might

To find a home on a tiny budget, but I ended up giving up that fight.

For everything within that small little sum

Needed thousands in repairs for years to come.

So when my realtor recommended a sweet yellow and white house

On a street called Potomac, the memories came pouring out.

I have always known that life is a real mystery,

Much of this one a miracle full of twists, turns and epiphanies.

I am so grateful for all of its twists and turns

For every day I live, I hope to continue to learn

That we are but travelers on a journey only God knows.

With lessons to be learned and miracles yet to be disclosed.

Thank a Soldier

military cemetery

Thank a soldier today and every day.

Without them, we wouldn’t be free — They led our pathway . . .

To freedom, equality, a place to call home . . .

A place for our children to grow and happily roam.

A land of green hills, streams and trails,

A nation where people of all colors and religions happily sail.

For we are Americans, who dare to be free . . .

To be who we truly are without all the politically correct cacophony.

The men and women who’ve given their lives

Were fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, husbands and wives.

Their families were split for long periods of time

Praying and hoping their loved one would return healthy, fit and fine.

While most did return without e’er a scratch

Many thousands gave of their lives when they were dispatched.

So thank them today for their service and for all that they gave

Without them we wouldn’t be: The land of the free and home of the brave.
