"Home of the free,
because of the brave.
May we never forget
that our freedom
is never free!"

The Lord is our light and salvation...
for whom should we be afraid?

The Lord is our stronghold of creation...
for whom should we be in fear?

Psalm 27:1

Imagining spring gardens from balcony above
bring warm thoughts to dawn air:
the serenity of breathless moments,
the sight of finches in flight,
and the silent peace of early spirits.

Sunlight peeks from heavenly sky above.
Rays fill my body with warmth.
Spring crocuses and then tulips
provide weekly surprises,
sneaking and popping out of the rich fertile black earth.

There's passionate energy of new birth challenge:
first green, then baby blue blossoms,
white, and pale yellow colors.
I will be dazzled by beauty, as rows of vibrant banners
fill my dreams with blissful sights.

They go to another dimension,
where only angels appear.
Listening for flowers that whisper
and sing music to my ears...
anticipating a special kick-off to a new warm year.

True joy kindles from the heart.
It is the way we feel,
......the way we talk.
......the way we smile.

Our hidden passions
must be shared.
The soul within touches
what our eyes cannot see.

A genuine friend
attempts holding our hand,
with unidentified style and warmth,
but unexpectedly connects to our heart.

The greatest rewards
aren't seen
with our sight,
but from the spirit within!

With one-step forward,
there are three-steps back.
then try a swirl!
Believe in yourself to achieve.

Take a step in the direction,
maybe receive it in a dream.
Thoughts attained
are meant to succeed.

Finding them comes from the mind,
. . . . . . . . . . touches our heart
. . . . . . . . . . tingles the body,
. . . . . . . . . . our soul entwines.

You can,
you will,
and you believe!
So, do you want to dance?

Customer Review

Secrets of a Heart is wonderful.   I write poetry and have been pub'd at and other places online. Haven't written my poetry book yet, but I am working on it.  I also have unpublished works by my Great-Grandfather, and will publish his works also.  Writing poetry is a wonderful outlet for me, especially in 2006 when my husband was so ill, and writing was an outlet for my feelings. I would read him my new works, especially the poetry that I wrote about him and our relationship.  This was comforting to him.  I lost him on Aril 27, 2006.  Thanks for sharing.

When Christmas comes,
my mind shifts gears to holiday cheer.
The ham's a roasting in oven aglow.
The pumpkin pie smells sweet and nice.
The cookies bake to fill us with delight.
The Christmas tree is tall, snowy, and bright,
and glistens long into the night.
Our home fills with warmth and laughter.
My sister and brothers merrily talk of memories past.
The children play and sing by the crackling fire.
Oh, the lovely sounds, aromas
and sights of Christmas cheer!

Smart Alternatives On-Line!

Smart Alternatives On-Line is helping families
and couples to rebuild.  "Pick a Passion," allows
someone to restart and take a positive step
in their life.

The Holy Bible indicates (Isaiah 65: 22-25) that
we should have a life with adequate housing,
food, and work to create a happy marriage,
family, and home.  I am on a mission to help
people put balance into their lives, be creative,
and explore their unique potential.

As fast as this world is changing today, people
barely have time to think.  With so much to do,
it seems easier to just to do it all rather
than stress yourself to decide what's really
important.  Doing all the work still won't
guarantee you'll reach your deadlines or
accomplish your goals in the current economy.

Your challenge is to find a way to choose
the special things, not everything.  Doing the
right steps to add creativity to your life is
important.  These tips have worked for both
my readers and I in choosing the important
things to focus on in order to lead a less
stressful life and feel successful.

Use Smart Alternatives On-Line as a tool
to help you achieve this in your life.
God Bless!
