A Take - From the Turtle



The Chair 

She walked the golden path
To the door
She opened the door
there was a chair
placed just so....
she sat down.....
no one there!
She walked the silver path
To the door there..
She opened the door
there was a chair
already there...
placed just so....
She sat down.....
no one there..
she took a deep
breath!
She walked the graveled path
to the door there
She opened the door
....always there
it was the chair....
always there....
placed the same way.....
she sat
She took a deep breath..
..........
no one there
it was dead air!




Love and hugs,

SueAnn

A New Take - From the Turtle


No License to Kill 

Where never is heard...
A discouraging 
Word.
A compliment....
Instead of a 
Slam?
A praise.....
A cheery smile...
Not a scowl.
A hug.....
Instead of a
Punch!
Wouldn't it be
Nice?
For kindness and
Grace?
For kisses 
And a smile on the
Face?
Words of hate and
Disdain....
Do kill!
For a lifetime, 
They do such
Harm!
Remember to deliver 
Your message with love!
And not a punch...
In the arm!!
Be kind!!
Words kill!!



Love and hugs

In the Distance 

I felt the warmth
Must be the sun.
Then I saw them,
Dancing lights..
Off in the distance. 
I was drawn to them...
Mesmerized!
Closer I crept...
Slowly...quietly!
Afraid to make any noise!
Afraid they would 
Disappear!
So enchanting....
So brilliant in their
Beauty!
SHINNING!
Stunningly  beautiful!
But as I approached...
A dark shadow approached as well?
Twinkling white lights
Blocked by a black, ebony shadow with
Glowing red eyes?
Coming closer to me...
As I got closer....
It crawled closer.
Blocking more and more of the
 Twinkling lights!
Were they lights?
I could reach them now....
Touch them!
They were WET!
I was amazed!
Confused?
The shadow was almost upon me!
The glowing red eyes...
Hypnotic!
I WAS STUCK!
I could not move?
Then I understood...
The twinkling lights were
DEW!
As the furry creature 
Surrounded me
With her web!
How quickly we succumb to
Illusions of light!
Of lies!




Love and hugs

A New Take - from the Turtle!


Tales from the Darkside

Tentacles  from the Shadowland reached out....
Snaring me from it's cold, dank reaches.
Caring not for my fear!
Actually,  relishing it!
Celebrating it with glee.....
Blood dripping from it's fangs!
But I escaped!!!!!
With a joyous laughter escaping my mouth!
Outloud I laughed!
Then, louder I roared.
I shouted, " You have no hold on me!"  " It's all a trick!"  "A figment of my weariness!"
"Be gone you fool demon!"
Just as quickly as I felt the snare.....
I felt the release....
A comforting spring filled my joints and I felt the power surge my limbs!
Ahhhh!  Precious Spirit!!
You've come through me yet again!
The Shadowland whispers such horrid lies, and yet again, in my weariness,  I almost fell prey.
Will this ever end?
Remember.......
Small steps!
Magic!
IMAGINATION!!!!
Trust!



Love and hugs,
SueAnn

A New Take - From the Turtle!


And so it begins....

She opened her eyes
To see a new sun give birth to newness!
Bright....
Metallic!
Glowing in the distance!

Just for her!
MAGIC!

Steering clear of the  Shadowland!
Whispers in the far Darkness!

She travels towards the Glow rising in the Horizon!

MAGIC!



Love and hugs,
SueAnn
