Acrostic Poem~ On My Own

In the depths of isolation.

Glued to the TV for the latest news.

Usually tired from my inactivity.

Annoyed that every day feels like the same.

No one said this will be easy.

Another day shut away from the world.


Happy March 1st! From Sadie, The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel


New month, new opportunities

Let them unfold, at their own pace

Take your time in everything you do

Along the way, embrace the beauty around you

When Faced With Hope And Fear

Hope peaks out like a sun behind a total eclipse. 

Paint the sky with my dreams, let my thoughts manifest my desires.

Reflect on my emotions.

Excitement and anticipation come as I think of the possibilities.


With reflection come the snaking fear of doubt.

The snake curls around my roots,

Threatening to suffocate me.


Look ahead, take in the surrounds.

Sway right, sway left.

Feel the loosening of the snake.


Softly,  shake off the fear.

A bright glow of golden rays blooms in my trunk.

Move my gaze past the darkness to the bright horizon.


A vibrating sensation moves through my branches.

My branches may take a beating but my roots, my core 

will stay strong.

Whatever comes my way, 

I am the tree of life.
