Wake Up…

Wake up to a beautiful morning.

Embrace the glorious day.

But be aware that negative people

will steal your dreams away.

 

Start your day so happy.

The sun shines oh so bright.

But meet hostile folks today

and joy goes out of sight.

 

Don’t know what to do

with this stressful world today.

Looking for a strategy to help

my peaceful attitude stay.

 

The mid-day is working out so well,

even fit in a mellow break.

But walk in the path of an angry person,

and goodwill is truly at stake.

 

It’s tranquil as the sun goes down,

and feeling oh so fine.

Dodged all combative people,

and the day was so divine.

 

Stay groovy…

The Roadmap…

As I passed an elderly woman,

I knew I had lost my way.

I was in a foreign city

feeling confusion and panic that day.

The older lady held the secret

to know the lay of the land.

She must have been in her mid-eighties

with beauty and knowledge as old as the sand.

Years of loyalty to one zone or town

gives infinite knowledge of the space.

The sags and wrinkles she proudly wears

serve as a guide from place to place.

As we sat and chatted she shared many stories,

the awe in her voice made me stare.

She offered a plethora of information

no GPS or map could share.

As our conversation came to a close,

I gave her a gentle touch.

I was no longer concerned with being lost,

for her roadmap offered so much.

Stay groovy,

Simple pleasures of life…

In no particular order…

Reading,

eating chocolate.

listening to music,

playing guitar,

sipping wine,

laughter,

sitting before a fire,

Netflix,

cuddles with your puppy,

cuddles with your partner,

cuddles in general,

writing,

chillin’,

visiting with friends,

listening to the rain,

cooking a good meal,

enjoying a good meal,

singing your heart out,

interpretive dance,

hanging out with family,

a bubble bath,

relaxing in bed,

a leisurely stroll,

baking bread,

baking anything,

reminiscing,

a back rub,

a nap,

taking photos,

observing artwork,

creating anything,

clean sheets,

a burning candle,

the scent of someone you love,

a fluffy blanket,

feeling your best,

a new journal,

…just to name a few.

How about you?

 

Stay groovy…

If…

If you grew to be precisely like me

would you feel joyful or sad?

Because with me comes many good things,

but are there attributes you’d perceive as bad?

 

Not anger, hostility, or a negative vibe;

I’m simply different than most.

But how shall we label the difference that’s there?

Is it a used car or a junker that’s toast?

 

We are very alike and two of a kind,

But with that comes some imperfections.

Together we combine to make one awesome person,

so don’t dare divide us into sections.

 

You are my child, my life, my other half,

and I’ll always be here for you.

Just please don’t allow the “if” to take over

or distort your personal point of view.

 

Stay groovy…

–Susie
