Haiku

thoughts of you always

slip into my mind, precious

time, just you and me

My Grandmother (Décima)

She was feisty, spirit so rare

Time in my life was a blessing,

Her honesty was refreshing,

Love and care she showed was sincere.

Enjoyed hearing stories she’d share

Joined at the hip, me her and mom,

They brought me peace and kept me calm

When monsters plagued my bedtime thoughts

Or my stomach was tied in knots,

The Final Hour

softly she whispered

as her final hour had come,

she transitioned to

a place where pain and sadness

are gone, never to return.

In a Frenzy

If the excitement of a mid-day or after dinner snack hasn’t made you sing, clearly you’ve never been properly treated!

Yesterday I made the mistake of going food shopping on an empty stomach, and my plan to purchase just two small bags of groceries turned into a cart full. At one point I found myself surrounded by all types of desserts, including some of the modern classics like apple pie and chocolate cake, and somehow I managed to walk away with only this vegan, fat free, low-calorie trifecta of juicy fruit goodness.
