treats left for those bringing joy
Years ago, a lady would feed the
animals that roamed her wooded
property. She could see them safely
from inside thru a picture window.
Part of the caregivers duties was
to place treats for the different
creatures in specific spots for them
to enjoy.

Memorial poem for Lucy, the grand-cat, a Halloween
treat.. or is it trick ? ten years ago. She belonged to
my youngest grand-daughter and had to stay behind when
the family moved to Texas in 2010. Lucy aka Smeeks, then
lived with my ex-hubby #2.
I learned a lot about being a more loving person from Lucy.
The time near
Escape planned
fast as a bunny
ninth life wanes
rainbow peace

The events in Vegas on October I, 2017
did not remain in Vegas ~ word spread fast.
Young and old, rich and poor, strangers, friends or family.
no discrimination of color, religion or national origin.
Heroes and angels, visitors and locals
appeared out of the crowd and town.
cherita form
may they find peace of mind or rest in peace
despicable evil
heart wrenching pain
unspeakable flashbacks
our flag weeps

note: “snowbirds” a word play on
the people who go to warmer climes for the winter
and we call them “snowbirds” in Maine.
the geese come to Maine from Canada as their warmer climate
