Bouquet of Daisies

I’ve never seen a sight as white and bright, As brilliant when the bud, though still entombed in purple deep, becomes a vibrant sight, Near blinding, once that flower’s fully bloomed. Emerging one by one, these daisies’ flumes bestir the heart and take the breathe away, Distract and turn the heads of hardened grooms, Who […]

Wanderlust

In March, while on a SHU Booster Club trip to Indianapolis to support Seton Hall at Butler, we made side visit to the fantastic and historically significant Indianapolis Speedway. Not a racing fan, I was less than enthused, until we got there. The enormity of the track, the steeply banked turns, the historic bricks, did, […]

This Earthly Plane

This earthly plane on which we mere subside, Seems other worldly, wistfully serene, A plane between where sky and sea collide, Where humankind do live and dare to dream. Is earth a conjured backdrop for our schemes? We know it’s mere a sphere amid the vast of deep, dark space; yet more than it may […]

Village Nights

My “village” wears a shawl of winter snow, Yet folks return each year to take their place, And lighting from within the homes we know, Create an air of warmth and welcoming space. ”T was only hours ago they lay in crates, Securely stored to spend the warmer climes, Anticipating joy on grandson’s face that […]

Carry

After an exhaustively satisfying jaunt to Disney Springs, we return to our Polynesian Paradise, with visions of plunging into a refreshing Oasis Pool. This photo captures many emotions for me, transporting me back to the warmth of that day; tasty lunch on the deck of the Boathouse, our traditional “Downtown” shopping and snacking adventures, and […]

The Maze

She, tempted by the lure of the unknown, And yet she feared the secrets held within, She should have turned away, she should have flown. Aroma cedars bunched, full overgrown, Soft and nestling teased her to come in, She, tempted by the lure of the unknown, The sign was clear, the entrance etched in brown […]

Buttercups

In striving for fulfillment, seeking light, She almost overlooked the golden blonde, For brilliance oft confuses, blurring sight. Throughout her teenage years the buds so slight, Wee blossoms rose from lush and limpid ponds, She sought fulfillment, ever seeking light. Against the glistening of the leafy heights From dewy droplets clinging to her fronds, For brilliance […]

American Eagle

While visiting the beautiful city of Indianapolis last week for a basketball game between our beloved Seton Hall Pirates and Butler, we made an unexpected stop at the “9/11 Memorial”, that had been erected in the middle of the city. Suddenly and unexpectedly, the events of that morning more than fifteen years ago engulfed my consciousness. […]

Made for Each Other

Each year as Christmas time swoops swiftly in, With hectic shopping sprees at malls and such, Unlike my friends, I spare myself chagrin, And opt instead to add a personal touch. I raid my stash (I never have too much), To find the perfect fiber for his gift A cover warm with softness to the […]

Who Am I?

Mid jokes and jibes of thriving in the dark, Beneath peat moss and soggy, brown terrain, I rise near unperceived, yet here I be, Surviving rapid spinners, I remain. I’m often thought a nuisance causing dire consequences, if ingested by mistake, But you should know that I’m the harmless growth, And you may reap my harvest […]
