I saw you while you watched your love But a moment it was, a glance I seized like a common thief, snapping a photo without permission. As soon as I did, guilt left me stricken. You’re an opportunist, I thought, Always sniffing out the raw, the real, Feathe

I wrote a little piece for fun yesterday which I posted on my blog. Do celebrities think they can really buy everything? Makes you wonder. Would I want to cash in on my baby's name? What do you think? Do they really need more money? Take a look. Warning! B

Fade to grey No one sees No one knows Would they even care? What am I doing? It hurts but I feel relief Nobody sees the pain inside of me Nobody wants to know Not really I disappear in front of their eyes But they’re too blind to notice Or perhaps th

This is the last time I will tell this story.   I need my mother’s love.   I knew this all of my life and It is still true today.   I need my mother’s love.   She was beautiful and I would have told her so if I wasn’t so afraid she’d hit me.   I need my mo

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me, And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter. I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired

Freeing myself from within is a huge job for me.  I have been working on it, on different levels, for decades. Still, I find comfort in words that, at once, reveal and guide me through the seemingly endless maze. This poem always helps stoke my inner power

  Thank you for allowing me good housing, warmth, ample food, healthcare and good health.   Thank you for my eyes and having the ability to see without them. Thank you for my ears and not needing them to hear.   Thank you for the gift of intuition, compass

I didn’t even know, My little hitchhiker, I never caught his name, Over highways we flew. I was all warm inside, He took his ride outside, Holding on for dear life, To the trunk of my car. http://weethreenews.blogspot.com/2011/11/hitchhi
