  9. Hello. I’ve been super busy. My apologies for not posting in comments sooner. I will make a separate post for my friend who is not a blogger, but you can link her on my page. She’s an artist trying out her writing wings, and it’s beautiful. (Below is mine from last week.)
    Rockabye baby
    When the wind blows
    It brings messages of hate
    Don’t listen my baby; don’t listen

    Rockabye baby
    When the wind blows
    it touches with dark shadows
    Don’t touch my baby; don’t touch

    Rockabye baby
    When the wind blows
    It brings the taste of innocent blood spilled
    Don’t taste my baby; don’t taste

    Rockabye baby
    When the wind blows
    It brings the sight of
    Flags waving at half mast

    Acknowledge, but don’t linger your gaze my baby; don’t linger.
    Please don’t hold on to any of these messages
    Because the real world isn’t really all this negativity and darkness.
    The real world, my baby, is so much more

    Than the feedback from the news or the people enamored with it.
    When the bough breaks
    It is you my baby who will make
    The difference
    It is you who can change it.

    Bring your sweetness
    Bring your joy
    Bring your positivity
    And radiate your messages

    Of love and hope
    Out into the world.
    Be you my baby
    Be you

  10. Here is my friend Gloria Escobedo.

    Thank you!

    The wonder of it all
    Upon arrival I walk to our favorite spot
    As we have done so many times before
    The sun with all its glory soon fades away
    In its place black clouds come creeping in.
    As if on a mission they’ve blown in overhead quietly and unnoticed
    Instantly the sky is covered in night
    In the distance shadows and sprinkles of twinkling lights
    Stars, above all around then one by itself strong and bright
    Some in formation as if at attention
    Others – hundreds, the likeness of many loose diamonds
    Delicately shimmering so very distant – lifetimes away
    Before me is water as far as the eye can see
    An ocean so vast so big so proud with its mighty waves
    The water seems to go on forever
    until into the bottom of the sky it respectfully tucks in its skirts
    Choppy waves clap and flap then away they rush again
    It is a windy night
    The smell of salt water in the air
    Out goes the shrimp clinging tightly to the hook
    Destined for the perfect catch
    Hello Mr. Sand trout
    A golden beauty up late!
    The seagull flutters by laughing dipping but not finding
    He wont give up though
    He knows all too well that soon he’ll get his.
    Upon a happenstance I look up
    What is it moving so quickly barely catching my eye
    Oh wow a shooting star!
    Look, darling! A shooting star!
    O wait- its gone
    how quickly it vanished almost as a vapor.
    Then I ponder on all this beauty.
    And think of the whole world of beautiful places I’ve yet to see
    Alas many lifetimes could not suffice!
    Looking around busied bodies about their business
    Can it be true no one stops to take in the beauty
    Then I wonder if per chance a person might say
    That all these elements just happened per chance
    Burning embers landing somewhere through flight?
    In no way could one thus say!
    Wait!!! Look up, look around for the very things of this earth
    They testify of a Creator.
    Alas, alas to no avail
    No one cares to seek, to find, to know
    So much beauty in life and still the word resounds in my head
    The fool has said in his heart there is no God.
    Awake to life, get to know the Creator, enjoy His creation
    and the wonder of it all.

    • Ooops. I tried to delete the one above. I have the corrected version here.
