Hello March Winds

Your Smile

Missing You!

Orange Leaf Maple Tree

A Sure Sign Of Autumn

Dishes Waiting To Be Washed

Is Silence Golden?

Begin Anew

The Birds

Life Is Like A River


Orange Leaf Tree



Summer Is Ending

Nature Spoke To Me

Chilly Fall

Fly Away

I Miss

Without You

Happy Father's Day (Repost on June 16, 2013)


Although you are not here
I feel your presence near
We removed so many of your things
Yet, your spirit forever clings
We can never erase traces of you
Sometimes this makes me feel blue
By now you would be planting seeds
Tending your gardens, pulling weeds
Your love of the ocean, fishing, the quilt with the ships
I made for you, from scratch cut into strips
Thinking back on my childhood days
Your love unfolds in so many ways
There was nothing that you could not do
If something broke you would fix it like new
I could always count on you to come through
Nothing was ever too much for you
The little things you used to say
I can hear your voice loud and clear repeating them to this day
In the front yard a tree I can still see the swing
You made me feel like I had wings
Like the tree big, strong, and tall
You being my father I knew I would never fall
Now you are among the angels on high
Rest in peace for it's never good-bye

With Love, Happy Father's Day!
