Half moon

I saw the moon, I thought of you

This half moon shining brightly

Do you see the same moon I see?

Is yours as bright as mine?

This half moon I see,

It radiates happiness

From my side it is so bright

It captures my thoughts

It shares them with the stars

They twinkle brightly

We search for the stars we know

Stories unfold, memories shared

As the dark sky fills with tiny lights

So even when you’re not with me

And when the clouds are dark

The moon is always there

Waiting for the moment

To share its light once more

So you can see the moon

Is it look the same as mine?

If I painted a picture

If I painted a picture

What would you see?

A bright moon shining

In a blue velvet sky

Glistening in the dark sea

.

If I painted a picture

What would you see?

Warm breeze running through

My sun kissed hair

Ruffling it up

.

If I painted a picture

What would you see?

My smile laughing

As you joke and laugh

Making me happy

.

If I painted a picture

What would you see?

Bright blue skies

Turquoise lagoon

Water lapping at our feet

.

If you painted a picture

What would I see?

You smiling back at me

You laughing, your happiness

You being you, me being me

Summer weather

Storm clouds gather, darkening the sky

Water streams from them with hail

Thunder rolls and crashes around me

The sky is light with sheets of lightening.

Wind blows them away quickly

The sky becomes a brilliant blue

The leaves on the trees so fresh and green

Sun’s rays, quickly warms the air

Summers weather unpredictable

Soaking up the sun, heat on our skin

Smiles on our faces, happiness in our hearts

Measured

measured

Time measured by clocks

Liquid measured in a jug

Heat measured by thermometer

Weight measure by scales

Distance measured in miles

Sound measured in decibels

Wood measured with a tape

Happiness measured in laughter

Sadness measured in tears

Heart measured in love

Love measured in kisses

Measurements important in time

Love important to live

Happiness is…

Happiness is sun on my face

the hum of bees on the super highway

distant lawn mowers on a summers day

Children squealing with delight

The dog snuggling against me

.

Happiness inside me is

the feeling of love and kindness

the ability to smile at the world

the memories of my life

Choosing to be happy with all

Read your words.

Today’s poem is a little more challenging, the prompt from napowrimo today was use social media quotes from friends and followers.  So I have

words.

A story a day challenge

Bubble trouble

Nothing beats some free time to relax

Unexpected Twists,

visually rich writing style, The Devil Came looking.

I’m back in the game,

a little follow up to the sea moving poem

I put my soul into superhighway,

I believe the whole world will read it

What is the secret of happiness?

Discuss. It can’t be that difficult

Procaffeinating

The tendency not to start anything.

Until you’ve had a cup of coffee.

You can just come into someone’s life

and make them feel special

Today is the day that will never come again

So make it a good one.
