Today I might...

Today I might
Listen to music

I might
Long and loud.

I might dance
With my daughter

Cuddle with a cat
Or maybe

I might
Talk with a friend.

Or tip tap on computer keys.

I might
Stay silent
Being still

Birds sing
Steps sound
I breathe.

Many things I might do
This day…

I might…
I could…
Now begin.

This is an entry for One Shot Wednesday and 6 Word Friday!  Enjoy and share in the fun.

Suddenly Spring - Tanka

March enter softly,
Sapphire blue, crisp, clean and bright
Washed clean, Sun shine dried
Overnight, flowers burst forth
Spring teases, Nearly close enough to touch

March begins and it is time for a One Shot Wednesday!

Short and Sweet One Shot

Hands, Fingers
Smoothing, Playing, Caressing
Promising, anticipating possibilities

A Short but Sweet One Shot for this busy January day.

Child of All Seasons

Diamonds grace her head
Jewels from the sky.
My summer sprite turns to winter princess
Before my very eyes.

Cloaked in powder blue
She is the ice upon the lake.
She is giggles and laughter and candlelit nights,
Snowmen, igloos, and snow cream shakes.

She slides upon the ice
While I struggle to stand still.
She delightfully cries “snow!"
I pull the duvet as far as it will.

Snow boots replace sandals
Wool hats cover pony tails.
Icy winds pull and push and tease
Sending  child and flakes to swirl.

In spring she blooms with flowers
Summer she is butterfly  performing tango with the bees.
Autumn she shimmers in vivid  jewel tones,
Winter brings its own sparkle, like the crystals of icicles and bejeweled trees.

Every season she embraces
This elf that shares my heart.
One with nature
Finding its treasures,
This brilliant star with a passionate spark.

Join in the fun at One Shot Wednesday!

Everyone is... Gifted

Talented, Beautiful
Creating, Thinking, Sharing
A spark within each. 

“Am I gifted?”

Any Day at the Office

Amidst the abundance I sit
Books, Binders, Boxes, Business
Colorful artwork splashed on bulletin boards
Door partially closed
Eyes fixed to computer screen
Fingers fly across the keyboard
Getting the job done (and a few other things) with grace
Helter-skelter, thoughts wiz
Imagination tickling, aching for attention
Jen on the phone reminding me to laugh
Kid, contracts, emotions, schedules
Lunches, meetings, teleconferences, trainings, e-mail
Minutes into hours into days
NPR – my office mate with opinions, stories, and always something to say
Organization of the out of order variety
Pens, Pencils, Papers, Pins, Proposals, Possibilities
Quality Assurance and Quick Responses
Reports due or in process rein supreme
Sun shines out there… somewhere… possibly?
Tomorrow more of the same
Unless creativity is sparked
Visits from the muse, unexpected e-mail or phone calls
Weekend Countdown in process – 5 days, 4 days to go...
X-citing news, X-hausting project, X-amining the information provided
Yes I can, Yes you will have it, Yes it is possible
Zipping closed, shutting down, locking door – Until tomorrow.
