this morning   Leave a comment

this morning the clouds rolled in and it looked to be midnight at seven-thirty am.
I love it when it is like that.
It almost felt like fall had come to Iowa.
I honestly can’t wait until it does.
So sick of heat and humidity.

the clouds and wind promised rain, but alas….we did not get anything but a few sprinkles in Iowa City.
A lady in West Branch told me she got drenched there and my daughter in law said she and her daughter walked through a lake to get to my grand daughter’s school this morning.

Darn it!
I want a soft gentle rain to last all day long, and to not get warmer than 65 degrees.
Come on Mother Nature cooperate with me!

Free falling   Leave a comment

the shadows lurk just beneath the surface

as I stand tall on this precipice

I want to jump and free fall

I’m scared though and not sure if I really want that at all

I’m mixed up, screwed up and a baby most of the time

I want this, I want that, I change my mind on a dime

I want adventure, romantic love and a kiss full of passion

my life is stagnet, unromantic and unfulling, even when I’m askin’

I search, I look, I seek, I find

and all around me I see a land mine

if I step this way, who do I hurt

if I step that way, I could fall face first in the dirt

Do I dare to seek and search and find

something I can be happy with and call all mine

I’m a chicken and unmotivated and when it is all said and done

I will probably just sit here dreaming about it all and miss out on the real fun

the adventure, the excitement, the world is mine for the takin’

but I know me and I know how my mind works, and I will probably  just keep on fakin’

stay in my safe zone, and not move at all

just keep on dreaming and wishing for that free fall…………..
