Stairway to Heaven – Beauty beyond Belief

Reflect back personal life assessment
True-to-life dreams sudden omnipresent

Loved ones gone many years before me
Decide while asleep appear awake faces see

Twenty minutes notes taken from memory
Certain future make for quite interesting story

So many signs – so many repetitive numbers
Honestly scared to rest my head to slumber

Strange happenings finding rather creepie
Message to self early turnoff creepie-peepies

Hot cup of tea ‘n good book to read choice
Hopeful able prevent more nightmarish voices

Wonder reasons attribute dream remembrances
Alternative be heaven-sent messages significances

This morn this poem I wrote untold facts between lines
Notebook status storage space private thoughts self mine

Sunday Writing Prompt “Life Changing”

I think back to elementary school years and a special teacher who took interest in

me and my home life situation. 

By today’s standards I definitely grew up in a dysfunctional family. 

This teacher graduated with me each year as she moved up to teach the next grade.

On Saturdays she held French classes in her home and I was able to attend free of

charge – yes, the poor of the parish with hand-me-down clothes, a father who 

drank away his weekly paycheck leaving only enough money for bare necessities  

and a mother who people referred to as different. 

Years later after graduation from high school I included this teacher on my 

wedding invitation list. 

She did attend the church ceremony; however she passed on the afternoon

reception.

For years each Christmas she sent me a beautiful card – inclusive were 

words of encouragement.

I presume she saw in me what I didn’t see within myself – power to succeed

and from best I can recall she wrote ‘never give up on your dreams no matter

your age’.

I managed to accomplish quite a bit within my life amid personal struggles.

In the early 70s while in conversation with the primary builder of my 

marital home I mentioned a dream goal I’d hope to attain in the future.

The man’s response was nearly the same wording as my favorite teacher

from elementary school. 

Sadly dreams don’t always come true; however, I learned to substitute and 

be thankful for that which I was able to accomplish. 

The alternative for my craft shop was a stay-at-home sewing venture that

supplemented my fixed income.

From 10:00 a.m. through 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. I’d sew dancewear and 

custom made-to-order outfits. 

The hand-made items were sold to people I knew, online and at my 

hometown’s yearly craft fair.

In year 2017 totally retired from crunching numbers and sewing for $$ I started

blogging more and during the past few years made some nice virtual friends.

Sitting at the kitchen table this morn eating breakfast I reflected on a few of the

morning reads.

At my age I’m not certain if I wish to continue blogging in hopes of publishing a

book before the Lord calls me home.

Perhaps blogging and being able to place the word ‘writer’ following my name is

as close to being an author that’s in God’s plans. 

It’s not that I’m giving up 100 percent – more like I need to do what makes

me happy.

Thus I have thought of returning to my love of crafts in hopes of earning a

few extra bucks.

Questions about Departed Loved Ones

Realization is many in life ask the Lord for assistance when in dire straits.

For some wishes are granted while others receive unanswered prayers – a mystery.

I’ve often heard loved ones speak of signs from dearly departed relatives.

Cardinals, butterflies, feathers, pennies in strange places, rainbows and visitation

dreams all were signs shared with me.

Personally I have experienced visitation dreams and the presence of a former

spouse numerous times to the point of awakening in a cold sweat thanks to

the dream being too vivid. 

Immediately I wrote down exactly what I remembered and then no more

dreams visits from individual. 

The areas with regards to signs I think about are:

  1. How does a person know exactly who is visiting from the other side from those other signs?
  2. If an individual is in a long-term marriage for over three decades, is that person 
    considered the soul mate or another from a second marital union?

Comments are welcome!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What Ifs !! Last Life’s Dream

Words gripped my soul
A quote written on a rock
Dream bigger than imagine

Numerous times told self
Continue – never give up
Discipline self – could happen

Move forward ‘n join in
Blog posts – poetry readings
Attendance authors’ conventions

Events thus far on writer’s journey
Small tokens inspirational interest
What if happiness doors ’bout reopen.

Cemented Memories

Sometimes darkness night
PTSD recurs, dreams fright

Ghastly ghosts ferment
Stories, turmoil, torment

Night pattern familiar
Sights bizarre, peculiar

E'erlast prediction doom
Switchover kick-ass gloom

Insomniac heartless witch
Costume designer lover stitch

Mood capable reverse
Positivity skills rehearse

Mornin' meet attendee
Necessity anxiety free

Breathing techniques
Calmness overcome thee

Underneath covers cower
Await daylight, pleasant tomorrow.

Searching for a Miracle

Trapped within crystal ball
Prayers await bless miracle

Fish descriptive clairvoyant
View past, future 'n present

Persona classification genuine
Choice settle versus wrap-up line

Majority dates heart and soul rare
Both sexes tire weary process nightmare

Wonderful chemistry combo good energy
Cheesy signs transfer exchange friendly

Vivid dream hopeful one day come true
Experience butterflies plus sparks flyin' too.
