    I planted seeds of love, on a warm, sunny day
    With tender care, and resilient roots, they burrowed in to stay
    The blooms were that of which poets dream, a masterpiece unveiled
    The constant nurturing, and soothing words, alone, have never failed
    I wrap my arms so tightly, to embrace this inner peace, in a world of
    such uncertainty, my heart's compassion, a sweet release
    These seeds of love, were sprouting, acceptance and forgiveness
    Lord, change our hearts, and change our minds, put an end to all this madness

    LEO---Lioness

    Long may she ROARRRRRRR!!!!!


    The Leo woman is strong, and compassionate,
    but is no pushover
    She is very protective of those she loves, and will
    fight to the death, when someone harms or mistreats
    them
    She can be the life of the party, willing to have fun,
    and get along with everyone, or....
    A angry Leo woman, can scratch your eyes out, cuss
    you out like a sailor, and love harder than you ever thought possible.
    A good ally, that will always have your back, and she is loyal
    to a fault
    She is kind, warm hearted, loving, generous, hard working and
    Willing to do what needs done, for the cause!
    Recap::: she will be your best friend for life, until you hurt her, and
    then, you are erased! She can cut out anyone, or anything, and
    be sad, but function like a real trooper

    Intense sunrays, scorch her tender skin
    As she thinks upon the pain, her bodies in
    She prays for dark, not knowing what lurks
    The shadows hold her secrets, dreams, & quirks
    Night is upon her, with a spectacle of stars
    As she lays her head for slumber, alone, with
    only scars

    The morning dew is kissing my cheeks
    They are my tears, I've cried for weeks

    The sun shines brightly, warms my bones
    I confess with each breath, my sin atones

    Pulling me back from the depths of despair
    The queen of drama, I have such a flair

    Humming a tune I remember from childhood
    The message of lyrics, I never understood

    Get on with the day, and complete all my tasks
    I've been at it all day, in case anyone asks

    The last tiny sliver of the moon
    Was disappearing in the distance
    I noticed it, and tried to focus there
    So I wouldn't be tempted to glance
    The empty space next to me, still
    Smells like you
    I want to bury my face in your pillow
    And absorb every last bit of Razor Blue
    It was soap handmade from Italy, where
    I grew to love that scent
    It became the only thing mixed with your
    manliness, that kept me weak and spent
    It's a comfort to me, knowing you are
    Looking out for us,
    Yes, US! I'm carrying a piece of you, that
    Was conceived in our Volkswagen,
    Hippie bus
    I receive that bar of soap, every month
    come rain, or come shine
    It's all I use for fragrance, it reminds me
    That you are here, & you are all mine

    When I woke the next morning, it was all over the news that there were 12 women all together that had come
    forward and told of their encounters with, none other than the "kissing Bandit". I was smiling from ear to ear, and just about to rub it in, when I spotted my daughter in the kitchen, looking as if she was crying! Well this shook me to the core! I didn't want to hurt her feelings, just razz her a little bit! When I asked her what was wrong, she simply shrugged, and hung her head even lower! When I made it over to her, she about knocked me over, giving me the biggest hug I'd ever had! She apologized for not believing me, and for getting upset at my behavior. I apologized for embarrassing her, and everything got back to normal! Later in the day, the cops from the night before showed up to say they had arrested the man they believed to be the offender! This made me laugh out loud because the media had tagged the man as The Kissing Bandit, without me saying a word! They were going to do their level best to not refer to him as, kissing Bandit! It turns out that the Bandit was actually a middle aged man with a diminished capacity, and was actually in the mindset of a nine or ten year old! I felt sympathy, for this man-boy(aren't they all, really), he was just looking for love in all the wrong places, and here I had torched him in the heat(pun intended), of the moment, and had no idea what his injuries amounted too, or if he was even alive! I must have looked dreadfully sad, because the nicer of the two officers grabbed a kleenex box, and patted me on my shoulder! I appreciated the effort, and I asked if it would be possible to go and see him! They agreed to take me in the afternoon, and then they left! That poor man child! I caught them before they could drive away, and asked if they knew who had rescued me! They both shook their heads no! ��

    I woke up alive
    I have water to bathe in
    Water to quench thirst
    Family is doing well
    Flowers are blooming rebirth

    Free to come and go
    Do as I choose, and prosper
    Walking in the rain
    A soft place to rest my bones
    Dancing like no one's looking

    Babies being born
    Puppies and kittens at play
    Driving anywhere
    My feet walking in cool sand
    Happy thoughts keeping me sane

    Make a Wish

    Make a wish......
    Then set it free
    Let it ride the clouds
    Guided by the wind
    Swishing and swaying
    On its chosen destination
    You on the alcove.......
    Hypnotized by the clouds
    Drifting by.........
    A smile to your lips
    As my wish hugs you
    And warms your heart

    My tears fell today
    The song in my heart was sad
    A loves knot broken
    Shattered dreams not to come true
    A good hug could help I think

    The hug was a start
    To changing my heartbeats song
    My tears have dried up
    I see my future purpose
    And the love that comes with it

    I seem to recall that I heard a loud noise, and when I started to rise from my nice warm bed, I was knocked backwards by a smell that was very pungent and burned the inside of my nostrils! It was familiar, like an old man's aftershave, that was put on to take your mind off of what was really happening! I felt that I would surely faint, when my face was grasped on each side, and the lips that belonged to those hands, proceeded to kiss me so hard, I thought for sure I had to be bruised! Who was this person that thought they could kiss me without asking permission? As the nice EMT people were looking me over, I regained another memory! After being kissed, I panicked as I didn't know what was coming next, so I grabbed my lighter that I keep bedside for my candles, and sprayed my deodorant and fired up the lighter at the same time! Well the masked man immediately was in flames! That aftershave was a fire hazard! When he started screaming and flailing around, I dropped to the floor with a loud thud, and the next thing I know, I'm being carried over someone's shoulder, like a sack of potatoes! I was only able to see the back of my rescuers neck, but long enough to realize, he was well groomed, and had a tattoo on his neck that was spelled, "ybab legna! It was a language I had never heard of! The nice officers asked me how I had gotten out, and I explained! I could see them all look at each other, agreeing, without words, that I was looney tunes! When they asked about how the fire started, they really made a lot of faces and rolled their eyes as I laid it all out as I remembered it! Even I thought it sounded pretty unbelievable, and I had lived it! Someone called my daughter, and she showed up, with a look of complete terror on her face! Whoever called her, had said I was involved in a fire, so she expected to see my burnt body, and for me to be unrecognizable! I assured her I would be fine, but I wondered if I would be! I was explaining about the masked man that had kissed me, and my daughter got that same look that all the others had on their faces! My daughter got so embarrassed because I kept referring to the masked man, as "The Kissing Bandit." She kept apologizing to everyone, like her mom had finally cracked and was totally crazy! This amused me, so I started making smooching sounds and saying how if the fire hadn't started, I might be calling him something more than just, "The Kissing Bandit." That horrified my daughter, so she put me in the car and took me to her house! It was always fun joking on the kids! Now for some much needed sleep! I went to sleep smiling as I remembered the kiss, but it was the rescuer that I was kissing! Aahhhh! Sweet dreams �� Aja, !����pronounced (Asia)

    Tune in next Monday, when we might discover who the kissing Bandit is, and possibly
    who that hunk of burning love was that swept me off my feet!����
