VISTAS: An awareness of a range of time, events, or subjects. A broad Mental View.

If I could catch a rainbow I would do it just for you...
and share with you its beauty...
On the days you're feeling blue.

If I could build a mountain ...
You could call your very own;...
A place to find serenity,...
A place to be alone.

If I could take your troubles...
I would toss them in the sea,...
But all these things I'm finding...
are impossible for me.

I cannot build a mountain...
Or catch a rainbow fair,...
But let me be what I know best,...
A friend who's always there.

The headlines these past weeks have been so sad and disturbing, a 10 year old missing, a few days later a mother and her three daughters strangled by thier father, both lived less than 2 blocks apart, then today the finding of the missing 10 year old’s body. I had so hoped they would find her alive. They suspect the murderer of the 4 others, but of course it’s to soon to really know much by the headlines in the news.

How can one person kill another person? Why is their so much pain inflicted on the surviving? For what purpose? Why the evil? My thought to ponder today.

2003

when things become so complicated that the mind can not come up with a solution for resolution then we must take a step backwards and re-evaluate why or what has brought us to this point and then go forward

no it doesn't matter the who of whom I am
no it doesn't matter the who of me has feelings
and the who is me deserves more than the who is I has
but yet who am I?

they swarm like bees
buzzing and pushing and struggling to get through the combs
I'll be so glad when this Christmas is over

Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that the stuff life is made of.

1999

Today the wind proved the chill that I have felt for so long, As winter seeps into the fold, the days will become longer the nights less bold. Soon we will again feel summers warmth within our hold. Then will look back at what was now and think of it as old.

1998

I only ask to be loved
I didn't think that it was much to ask
but yet my prayers go unanswered,
I have faith that someday they will be granted
but if they were would I know it
For do I know what love is
would I abuse it
as I have been taught from the past
would I treasure it as it should be
would it grow and bloom
or wither and die

1997

I'm sad
I'm alone
I'm scared
I'm so tired
