ELIXIR OF LIFE

ELIXIR OF LIFE by Paula Perron

There are many forms of Elixir

Many think it is an alcoholic mixture

an intoxicating spell or cure

Not a spell-nor to lure

We need reminders of what is good

 and is happening in our neighborhood

To learn to keep Motivation growing

And our inner health flowing

We are one people living on this earth

living the best we can for what it’s worth

Together we will find the miracle Elixir

and heal the world so much quicker

A NOTE TO MYSELF

A NOTE TO MYSELF

I wrote myself a note today—that I want to share with you
Some you’ve heard every day— some you may think new
Keep on learning day and night—never, never, give up the fight
Show others kindness, when you can,—help to choose a worthy plan
Keep those you love very close—share your love in a large dose
Support those who need it most—be a gracious, thoughtful host
Be ready to serve when called upon—be the person they count on
Trust the faith in your heart—to direct your choices from the start
When the threat comes to an end—you will always have a friend

MUSIC THROUGH THE YEARS

MUSIC THROUGH THE YEARS

In the 20’s and 30’s Louis Armstrong inspired Jazz

  Duke Ellington gave it pizzazz

Ella Fitzgerald came around then

Gene Autry was in the saddle again

We go to the 40’s and in demand

Is Harry James and his band

Tommy Dorsey plays his best

Doris day is his guest

It’s the 50’s and who should appear

New Groups and Singers I had to hear

Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Johnny Cash

Kay Starr, Loretta Lynn, Ink Spots, make a splash

In the 60’s and 70’s, Pop Music is in

Beach Boys, Beatles, Carpenters win

Elton John, Carole King, Marvin Gaye

Hot. Hot, Hot, all the way

The 80’s on there’s lots of mix

County, Pop and Rock gives us the fix

Rihanna, Phil Collins, Taylor Swift, all great

Take the time to listen, don’t wait

THE MAGIC OF THREE

                                        By Paula Perron

What is the magic of three?

Superstition or factual, let me see

In football, a field goal’s points are three

In Baseball, you are out at strike three

A turkey in bowling is strikes of three

In math, the triangle has edges of three

The circus has rings of three

The Holy Trinity is three

Jesus rose on day number three

Bad luck always comes in three

Superstition or factual- the answer I see

I love you, is the greatest magic of three

QUARANTINE -HOME

I have stayed at home for one month and five days, obeying the rules of my State, New Jersey. My children have kept me fed by bringing me groceries, and leaving them at the front door of my home,

I have not left the house, except to sit on my patio in the backyard, and get some fresh air and sun.  I have not ventured out or gone to any store, and cancelled all my appointments. I am working hard at keeping my spirits up. I know many of you are feeling the same as I am and understand what I mean.

My Television is on constantly, watching movies, shows, and learning what so many others are doing to keep us safe, and they inspire me—a thank you will never be enough.

However, there will be a time when this will pass and we will resume as normal a life as possible.  Like any other pandemic or wars, or 9/11. We will never forget, and we will go on.

My hope for all of you out there is keep positive, keep busy and most of all keep safe.

SCENTS

The Pleasure Of the Scent of flowers by Paula Perron

We all enjoy the scents we know

At the park, the beach, the mountains of snow     

The flowers, the fruit trees and the pines               

The wonderful fragrance it brings to our minds

The lingering smell of a roast in the oven

The chocolate chip cookies baked by the dozen

The lingering perfume filling a room

That always takes away the gloom

Scents we could lose and I would be remiss

If I did not admit  how much I would miss

I SEE THE LIGHT

by Paula Perron

I SEE THE LIGHT             

  Today is a very special day—for most of us, it is Easter Sunday, or Passover,  and we are faced with the most destructive contagion seen in a     hundred years.  

Remember, in this country, when we are faced with a pandemic, we keep on going, never to stop in defeat. In the past, we have never given up—always fighting for freedom and justice, and we will, once again, overcome this latest setback.

                               I see the light and it is bright. DO YOU?
