Soft and sweet and comfortable;
you're one of my best friends.
You offer peace and joy and rest;
my troubles, you suspend.
My children love to see you,
they light up when you're near.
We huddle close together
to chase away their fear.
My doggie jumps to kiss you,
the moment you appear.
If he loves me best--or you--
isn't quite so clear.
You take us on enchanted trips,
where nothing can compare…
It makes my heart rise up in joy
to ever see you there.
Soft and sweet and comfortable;
you're one of my best friends.
I love my bed and its so true...
 can't wait to get back in!

This month (July) celebrates National 'Cheer Up the Lonely' Day.  What a great idea!  Here is the poem I wrote to honor this occasion:

Cheer Up the Lonely

Cheer up the lonely,
offer them hope.
You may just become
their reason to cope.

Offer them love and
a hand to seek out
when swamped by waves of
fear, grief and doubt

Liven their days with
bright bits of aid,
something they’re needing
when doubt pervades.

Cheer up the lonely…
remember it’s true--
what you give to others,
they’ll give to you.


Wherever you are and whatever you're doing, I hope that you aren't lonely.  If so, here's someone who cares.  Sending hugs to all!

Hello again.

Wow.  You thought I had forgotten about you.  But no, no.  Things have been rather busy at the Corum household - and I'm sure you can all relate.  And though I'm not promising to write again everyday, I did have something to share that I wrote recently in honor of the lovely weather we've been enjoying.  *smile*

Pit!  Pat!  

        Hear that?


Plip!   Plop!  

       Wet drop.

Plunk!  Splat!


         Clack!   Whack!        
             Sky black.

Bang!  Smack!          

             Thunder crack!

Winds blow –            
                       Light show!

Rain slows    
                   Cloud goes.




          Wet lawn.

Clean street.

Please have a super spring!
