Chapter One

Inspirations

All Day Long

All day long I try to keep busy, All day long I work myself dizzy.

All day long I try to do it fast, All day long time flies right past.

All day long I wonder what's next, And all day long things are fixed.

All day long I think about life, And all day long I long for my wife.

All day long ready to be home, All day long, finally at my dome.

All day long finally turned to night, Awaiting tomorrow that's filled with light.

Celebration

No matter what time it is, there's always something to celebrate.

Be it good times or an achievement Or a joyous occasion; Celebrate.

If nothing else comes to heart, There's one thing you should always celebrate. Life.

Your thoughts: ________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________

Clouds of Fire

The light blue colors just above the horizon of the tree tops Ignite the red flame-filled clouds as the sun Slowly sets.

These meshed colors signify an end to another Day in our lives, in hopes to wake up the next Morning.

The burning sky always a pleasant array of emotion spreading From setting, to setting To setting.

Your thoughts:

Dream Catcher

Sleeping soundly with the day's thoughts on my mind. I drift slowly, further and further Into the world of the dream catcher.

Images suddenly race through my head Thrashing from side to side and then stop. An array of peace and beauty come forth. Spiritually awakened, the dream catcher goes to work.

Collecting thoughts of good, letting the bad slip through the Sacred webbing. The eye of the eagle carefully watches Protecting us from all evil.

The morning comes and its job is done. We wake up to find it still hanging over head, Night after night and dream after dream.

Your thoughts: ________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________

Expressions of Nature

Birds chirping in trees swaying, Bees humming and squirrels playing.

Crickets singing, frogs leaping, Through muddy waters, snakes creeping.

Just a few of nature's expressions, These beautiful creatures teach life's lessons ...

Little rabbits running fast, Cubs romping having a blast.

Bats shrieking sounds of joy, Ants are small but still employ.

Expressions of nature are brought to you, Life it is, so live it true.

For our Mothers

These women in our lives carry us through everything. As simply as she brought us into the world, It's just as easy for her to love.

We depend on them, for they Are known to keep stability In our families. Always acting Out of goodness and heart They are so special to us.

They are at our beck and call, Yet still hold a firm hand. They love us and we love them. We wouldn't have anything if It wasn't for our mothers.

Your thoughts:

________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________

For Those Who Have Died

I surely hope for peace, in those who've had to die. I ask the Lord His blessing to help their souls to fly.

Up into the heavens and at the pearly gates, Your home of freedom and love that is where it waits.

Your families they may struggle, for peace I wish them too. I'm sure they miss you just the same and send their love on through.

Reasons you have passed, no one may ever know, But live within our spirits, like you never had to go.

With the Lord our savior, may he keep you safe as always? Walking beside you in heaven, that is where he stays.

Your thoughts:

Friends Together

A common goal, two people share. It could be love, it could be care. Somehow they meet and gain their trust, In friendships made it is a must.

They walk and talk and share their time, That time they share can be sublime. They're there when times become real bad. When things are worse or even sad. A shoulder to lend, to cry or lean, Now that's a friendship to be seen.

Friends together, they pal around, A friend in need is a friend just found. Together as one they are a team, And blessed they are, so it would seem.

Your thoughts:

________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________

Growth of a Man

The growth of a man depends on many things, From father figures to motherly instincts, Love is what that brings.

As the young boy grows learning facts of life, All he gains is knowledge. Into his years he learns some more, And prepares himself for college.

Maybe he doesn't know what life has had him planned, But sooner or later he'll figure it out, And his purpose, it will stand.

Taken into his own account, never afraid or ran, Stood up in beliefs and never backed down, This is the growth of a man.

Your thoughts:

Hump Day

Hump day, bump day, work day, It's the middle of the week. What's in store this weekend? I'd like to take a peek.

I hope its fun, with lots of sun, Maybe it's the beach. Maybe it's a picnic park I think I'll bring a peach.

Should it rain and the day turns plain, We'll play some games inside. When it quits and goes away I think we'll take a ride.

Hump day, bump day, work day, The weekend is coming soon. I hope its very fun filled From sunrise to sunset, until we see the moon.

Inspirations

Anything and everything that comes to mind is an inspiration. Thoughts incurred by deep heartfelt visions plaster my brain With ideas of goodness. Straying always into the world of wonder, dreams, and mystery, My heart embraces and translates the new meanings of life. Cradled by thoughts of love lingering impatiently through my body, These inspirations speak to me in tongues otherwise known to the average human. God and His spirit float influentially and gracefully within Faith-stricken lives. I prefer to think of it as dwelling peacefully in those who trust. In my heart I believe, I strive and I take for all things that come to me are inspirations.

Your thoughts: ________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________

Out of the Blue

Out of the blue I feel so free, I search for more.

Out of the blue I feel happy, I search for more.

Out of the blue I feel joy, I search for more.

Out of the blue I feel sad I search no more.

Your thoughts:

________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________

Peaceful Surroundings

Nature; sounds of soothing symphonies resting in my heart, Painted pictures, wonderful works of art.

Music; tantalizing tunes are terrific, they tame the savage beast. Every kind of harmony, heavy metal liked the least.

Home; the comforting class of quietness, it's the best thing that I need. Spending time with family, loving them as they plead.

Peaceful surroundings are times when we relax. This is what we need, to fill in all the cracks.

My name is Geairra Savalli. I am the sister of Leona. Unfortunately we do not know where she is. She dissappeared at age eleven. By now she is nineten and would be marrying. My father the swords crafter has just died. I am writing in my journal the last time. I am dying. I imagine Leona wouldhave her ebony white hair long and wavy. Her eyes are sweet. One a stel grey another a vuolet. A deep violet. She was such a sweet and innocent girl. But the outside world is dangerous. And she will be the only living shapeshifter female evwr bor. The others are all dead and I will be. Thy c be made but being born gives you nine lives. And the ability to birth born females. She will be hunted. I hope she is not captured. She has never ben good with violwnce. Always the peace maker. She is the rare phoenix as well able to control fire like a mage d shift jno any form she has sipped blood from. The exact copy. She is precious. But she is alone. I wish you well sister....

For a poetry book and first publication, I would give this book a rating of four stars. In the amateurish writing style the author lives and dies with the daily livings of life. I can say that on more than one occasion I could personally relate and was touched by many of the pieces written in this book. I am a fan of poetry and although this is by far not the best I have ever read, it is very modern and contemporary in its own unique way.
