Haiku ~ 8/21/15 ~ Octy


There are times I wish

I had more than just two hands

Oh! What I’d get done!!


Lorrie ❤


Then I think of the mental ability it would take to coordinate 8 arms and hands…ugh!  I’m good with the two beautiful hands I have!  I’m good with EVERYTHING I have 🙂

I’ve been a little obsessed with octopi lately…so I decided to draw one.  I may not be done with them in the form of art…

Hope you all are vibrating in the energy of love ❤

I ponder what is there in the dark

That prevents my beautiful soul from resting

I wonder what is in my mind that does not allow me to have peaceful sleep

It does not surface and perhaps the idea that there must be something

And my searching for what it is makes me stay awake longer!

So I say a little prayer

Dear Lord

As I lay my head down at the end of the day

May my heart feel free

And ready to express the love that lives inside

May my mind be clear

Because when I examine the day

I know that I hurt none

Helped many

And did the best I could

May I have compassion for all

And withhold judgment in all cases

May the fruits of my labor

Produce all that is good

May I lay my body down to rest

And to repair

And may healing restore my weary bones

Yes, Lord,

May you restore all that is good

All that you have given me

And may my sweet dreams of slumber

Bring a smile to my face.

Cavern of Yesterday


When the light fades

and the day falls into the cavern of yesterday

may your dreams be refueled

as the night stars take the sky

and lighten the way for dreamers to see

what was written in the days of creation


May you follow the lead of your heart

that plays beautiful music on the harp of time

etched from a fine staccato

with a flowing melody of faith and hope


Reach for those stars

the same ones that come out to view every night

against the backdrop of an azure sky

endless, timeless

etched in the memory of love


Yes, as the day falls into night

and your eyes are filled with dreamy wonder

may you always believe

and achieve

your hearts wildest desire.



Lorrie ❤
