granted grunt

it was there i swore
now this diamond ring doesn’t shine for me anymore
a glare turned to stare
omg, my ring finger is bare
it was always there
i should have exercised care

re-traced steps, it must be somewhere
tell the giver, i wouldn’t dare
praying for a miracle rare
a lesson fare

you don’t know what you’re missing till it’s gone
might be too late to dawn
easy to take things for granted, regrets spawn
it’s only material stuff to pawn

quit pining
start appreciating
quit self-frying
start drying

to lose is to find
things you’ve being blind
things that wrongly bind
encounters of the third kind

if it comes back
then not meant to lack
meanwhile silver lining spoke
“yea, i must have lost weight” croak

appear, appear my dear
pierre cardin is trop cher
why i hate to own
things that cost when lost to groan

today on the family feud game
a participant had “hadiya” for her name
she explained it means a “gift”
i connected “hadiah” in malay, from arabic lift

then came across a quotation floss
from wayne dyer, an inspire toss

“with everything that has happened to you,
you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat
what has happened as a gift.”

yea i can sift
my spirit to rift or uplift
to be sore or to soar
to whimper or bravely roar
to temper or peace pour

each life is a gift to give and live
a lifetime to treasure sieve and believe

thanksgiving around the corner
from a grateful jack horner

for now

finally onboard
with our hoard
let’s build more cupboards
sorry old hubbards

wiki commons
what for?
to keep what score
to fill our bore
to burden our core?

can’t decide
put aside
may need it later
spreadsheet sentiment incubator
we can be attic curator

for now
for later declutter wow
for renewal of life vow

for now
before we exit with a bow

we have plenty to luau
for now

fall colors



in order to enter new old
our hearts to hold
be gently bold
to zap mold

sweep the dust
a renewal blast

provence of our lives at last
in God we trust

we fled
we bled
now new wooden floors to tread
stuff to enjoy and dread

autumn mood flavor

orange skies to savor
eat persimmons of our labor
do ourselves the favor
amazing grace to neighbor
