Daily Quip

How many days have you been alive? How many days have you truly lived?


Stimulating the Senses

Cologne on the neck

Of the man you adore.

Perfume on the woman

You leave wanting more.


Rain on the grass

Just after a storm.

Brilliant new flowers,

The air silky and warm.


The breath on your cheeks

From a baby’s wee cough.

A delicate moment

Where nothing is off.


The sight of a sunrise

Just kissing the sky.

A snow covered lake

The air crisp, cold and dry.


The senses were meant

To be stirred and caressed,

A stimulating moment

With which you are blessed.

Looking For a Hug


I looked for a hug

From a silly old bug

But his arms were too short

For that kind of sport

So I asked then a deer

Who did magically appear

When he shook his big head

I looked around me instead

There were trees all around

Whose branches were sound

But not gentle their touch

That I wanted so much

So my journey moved on

Til I next saw a swan

Her wings were so wide

But to me she did chide

Look to your own

She said with a groan

You will find what you need

My words you must heed

So I nodded goodbye

As she flew to the sky

Now my heartstrings do tug

As I ask you for a hug

And so the spirit dies

As in all the world alive

The final chapter written

The day that ends in night.


And now the tears will fall

The pain is on the surface

All alone to ease the hurt

We walk the forest lane.


And yet the world won’t falter

The sun will ever rise

Day to night the cycle

The change is not felt here.


And forward on our steps must tread

For we will never yield

Our destiny awaits ahead

Our spirits rise again.
