Golden Ribbons Swirl

Marmalade Sea









I hear the sound of the whistle, and the splash of water.

The sun is waking, over the sleepy sea.

Spreading shimmering light, upon the waters.

Golden ribbons swirl, in a gelatinous sea.

Washing over sandy hues, drenching tooth and tongue.

Sweet tang bursts forth. Taste explodes!

Senses awash, in orange flavor.

Tea and marmalade.

Outside the Lines

Coloring JoyIf you are still battling the winter doldrums

or can’t face another Monday,

it’s time to shake things up!

Just for today,

do something you don’t normally do.

Live on the edge,

just for a little while.

Color your life,

outside the lines,

and enjoy the bliss.

Fling off the remnants of winter,

Have lunch with a friend,

Say something silly,

Laugh till it hurts,

Sing out loud,

Do something unexpected,

Rock the boat,

Make some waves,

Turn the volume up,

Buy something just for you,

Shake things up,

Take a risk,

Dance and feel the bliss,

Color outside the lines,

Call someone you miss,

Get carried away,

Order dessert,

Climb out of the box,

Shout, Woo Hoo!

Make someone smile,

Sing a song,

Jump for joy,

Have a great day!
