Living legacy

of sweet love, Barry and me.

My heart, he, Kristie.

I miss Barry,

Gone too soon, my heart aches,

for my sweet husband.

I never left you poem

God, take care of him,

As you know, he is my sweetheart,

Give Barry my love.

Grand-mama, My 2 Smallest Doggies


One dear little dog in the back, on my lap, 1 little, but growing  pup,

Mela, the wee one of the pack,  while Freyda says, “What’s up?”

Giving a tired, but loving, Grand-mama  joy and a smile,

When she is worn out & her chair won’t go another mile!

10 – the most interesting Number….?

It is the very non-original number, repeating 0 and 1.

At the conclusion of Pre-K, small children should know how how to count up to it.

Children get so excited when they reach that age, “Wow, I’m now in double digits!”

Ironically, it is not long at all before we wish aging was done.


100’s are often counted by tens, how very useful it is indeed!

10 has a prefix, deca, to measure time, especially years, decades.

I think 10 is very special! Anniversaries are counted – I did succeed.

Performances are often measured on a ten point scale or grade.


Now, you may agree that 10 is an important number.

If you don’t, it is fine. It isn’t a great big bummer.

To tell you the truth,  I love best the number nine.

That is for another day, another poem, another time!







3 Things I Wish I Could Do

3 Things I Love


How does this photo inspire you? Here are my feelings about it.

I wish, like the wind, I could dance,

Lightly on my feet & full of romance.

While taking in the smell of wild flowers & fresh air,

During afternoon Spring showers without a care.

Putting away sadness and regaining my peace,

For a moment, the tears of grief  would cease.

My Funny Cat


This is my calico kitty, Isis, my Egyptian goddess. This is my contribution to:

Awww Mondays



I am just lovely, really, the best queen calico cat ever,

I have my mom & my dogs wrapped around my claw, so clever.

I am so kind & fair that I allow them to sit in my chair.

I have manners you see, and I love with all of them, to share!
