Unperceivabley Seen

unseen

Longing for beauty

To fit society’s norms

To be accepted

Never included

Always watching from afar

Secretly wishing

Far from a size two

No matter how much she starved

With little success

Hair is too frizzy

Atop her face that’s too round

And nose that’s too long

Silently passing

Begging for them to notice

To be thought pretty

But no one looked up

A silent wind passing by

Openly hidden

Town apart inside

Her heart aches for their friendship

No matter how fake.

Blisstastic

mirror imagesBursting at the seams

Filled with love and excitement

Too hard to contain.

Most can’t comprehend

The magnitude of Blissdom’s

Unfathomable joy.

Ready to be embraced

By my internet soul sisters

Let’s get our BLISS on!!

Vanquished

fearlessSearching the mirror
For the truth that lies within
Pushing pain aside

Reveling in me
The pieces that make me whole
So wonderfully made

Forging through the past
They can’t hurt me anymore
I’ve conquered my fears

Seeking Clarity

Enlightened to change

To view life differently

Alter perspectives

To seek the unknown

Search deep within my soul to

Beautifully transform

Overextended

Brain on overload

No time for pen and paper

This is all you get

A Poem of a Lassie

Most friends call me Kat

The others call me Momma

Some don’t even call.

Wife, mother, sister

Maid, writer, confidant, friend

Short order cook too.

I’m the only girl

In a house loaded with boys

I am out numbered.

I like many things

Soccer, wine and chocolate

Don’t forget coffee!!

Sand between my toes

The colors of a sunrise

Smelling burning leaves.

Holding Hubby’s hand

A piece of cheesy pizza

Spring rain, a clean house.

I don’t like spiders

Ironing, clowns and onions

Heights and loud talkers.

Doing dishes – yuck!

Conform to society?

Not this sweet Lassie!

I can’t touch my toes

Can touch my nose with my tongue

Can’t sing worth a darn.

So now you can say

This Momma Lassie you know

For better or worse.

Run Furby Run

Oh little hamster

Trapped once again on that wheel

Running in circles

Make the crazy stop

I can’t keep up with your pace

I’m too old for this!

Living In The Fray

Searching for the thing

That got lost along the way

Leaving me empty.

Craving Solitude

kayaks

Feeling overwhelmed

My to-do list is growing

There’s never enough time

Longing to return

To the simple island ways

Of my Utila
