Thanksgiving Musings

October 10th, 2014 No Comments Tags: , , , , , , ,

Time for (Canadian) Thanksgiving
Are you taking time?
To ponder your many blessings
Or following through blind

Is it just a day off?
Or do you take time to dwell?
On special people around you
And the stories they tell

Do you plough through the day
Like a freight train at high speed?
Or take a few quite moments
To just stop and take heed

A deep breath is a blessing
A warm abode is too
Does this fill you with appreciation?
Or do you just sit and stew?

Do you have legs to walk with?
And eyes that gleam bright?
A heart that beats loudly
And a strong will that ignites?

If you woke up this morning
On the green side of the grass
Make the best of Thanksgiving
Help your gratitude last

Idaho Harvest

Idaho
Gotta go
Just to try
Beloved potatoes!

Always in style
So versatile
Enjoy any time
Conscience reconcile!

Good for you
Side dish or stew?
Vitamins & minerals
Plus fibre too!

Farmers field
A lot of yield
Have to say
Such a big deal

Hospitality
Generosity
Honest and true
From everybody

Idaho
Potato
Cherish the land
Now I know…

Any Day Musings

September 26th, 2014 No Comments Tags: , , , , ,

Time ticks on
It whizzes past
What do you do with it
To make memories last?

Days filled up with
To-do’s galore
Does it leave you feeling like
You’re longing for more?

The sparrows flutter
In the yard close by
The barn swallows lunge
Then soar to the sky

The waterfall trickles
In the Kettle Valley below
A rainbow arcs
For a wish to bestow

A friend who appreciates
A kind word and deed
Special time together
Without rush or speed

Taking stock each day
To appreciate
All the blessings we have
With priorities straight

Breaking bread together
Clinking glasses to cheer
Finding simple things to celebrate
Any time of year!

Rhyme Time Friday – Feeling Sunk?

August 22nd, 2014 No Comments Tags: , , ,

Feeling sunk?
And in a funk

Don’t despair
Life’s not alway fair

Call a friend
Don’t pretend

To take it on
Like it’ll just be gone

There are many ways
Your spirits raise

Family’s there
To help and care

Why go alone?
Pick up the phone

A ray of light
To lift your sights

Think positive
Not causitive

Flower or song
To help what’s wrong

Always look up
And get unstuck….

Shrinking Spirits

August 15th, 2014 No Comments Tags: , , , ,

Wine
May be divine
In the good ole summertime

Port
May give support
After dinner on your porch

Beer
May make you cheer
While sitting out by the pier

Alcohol
Awareness overhaul
Before it overcomes us all

Consideration
For moderation
Food for thought & contemplation

Take a sip
Between your lips
Just cut back a little bit

Who’s Retiring Anyways?

August 11th, 2014 2 Comments Tags: , , , ,

Someone I know is conspiring
That they might consider retiring
Has worked a long time
Many achievements have shined
Inspiring many behind him

He believes that anything’s possible
Stays the course, and is always unstoppable
Has made a huge mark
Is a remarkable spark
To all that are all around him

Has a way to make you get better
His approach is always unfettered
Helps you rise to new heights
Using all of your might
Never taking the credit because of him

Has learned to have his priorities straight
Which for me is absolutely great
Work/life balance is fine
Our life together is so divine
Special times just being with him

This person I know can’t retire!
Just shift gears of his inner bonfire
Not able to slow down
Always runs fully wound
Boundless energy with more ahead of him

Thoughts to Move You

August 4th, 2014 No Comments Tags: , , , ,

Climb a mountain
Walk a trail
Jump a rope
Hoist a bale

Walk a block
Ride a bike
Dance to music
Take a hike

Fly a kite
Hit a ball
Whatever you do
Just don’t stall!

Get outside
Enjoy the weather
Play some golf
From the heather

Take a swim
Have a splash
Saunter along
Or run a dash

Move your body
Do all you can
Either spontaneously
Or make a plan

Look up
Full cup
Sunshine
Sublime

Bird song
Days long
Warm days
Sun rays

Embrace
New pace
Outside
Don’t hide!

Produce
No excuse
Lots of choice
Let’s rejoice!

Dance or swim
On a whim
Walk or run
Have some fun!

Fresh air
Can’t compare
Summer time
Feeling fine

Seize the week
No defeat
It’s up to you
What you choose to do!

World Cup or Stein!

July 14th, 2014 No Comments Tags: , , ,

World cup
Play tough
Suck it up
Need some luck

Yellow card
Play hard
Ref jarred
On guard

Head shot
Make it pop
Gotta stop!
Believe it or not

Long game
No shame
Who’s to blame?
Too tame

To and fro
Watch them go
Goetze he
Stole the show

Game’s done!
Germans won!
How fun!
Undone!

Get off the duff
Move that stuff
No guff
Enough’s enough!

Oh Canada!

July 1st, 2014 No Comments Tags: , ,

Canada Day
I say
Appreciate
Our way, eh?

Maple leaf
Wheat sheaf
Apologize
Beyond belief

Sea to sea
Land of the free
Lots to do
For you and me

Cultural mix
Country hicks
So distinct
City flicks

Health care
You dare
Other countries
Don’t compare

Seasons change
Mountain range
Maple syrup
Hockey game

Being free
Is for me
The best part of living
In this country!
