Inspiration Has Struck!!!

I have spent the majority of my weekend writing. I wrote letters to pen pals, I’ve written numerous poems, some I am saving for later days.

I shared two poems on Instagram, and I thought I would share them with you. ❀


Spreading Sweetness

cookies

I bake because I care.

I understand the importance of balance & a healthy lifestyle.

Carbs aren’t bad, in moderation.

 

Life is too short –

to not have cookies,

cake,

or rainbow sprinkles.

 

The world is bitter –

so I will continue to spread sweetness.

One cookie at a time


 

Something About Hanging Baskets

hanging

There’s something about hanging baskets….

Maybe it’s the Mother’s Day tradition,

maybe it’s the flower itself,

as you were always just as bright, & beautiful, & delicate.

 

The reasons don’t really matter.

It’s a reminder that you’re still with me.

There are so many reminders –

the sound of geese, the smell of freshly cut grass,

& whenever I bite into a peanut butter cookie.

 

There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think of you.

Your love for so many things left a great impact.

 

I carry that same love for so many things inside of me.

It’s a comfort –

to know that when I’m no longer here,

I’ll too leave so many reminders for those I leave behind.

 

I miss you mom!
