For many Mothers Day will remind them of the
Pain and the sadness of loss
Been there not once but twice
A Mom and a Mother both who loved Unconditionally
Their Children and their Step Children
And the only soluntion I have found is
Remembering the Good Times
Eases the Pain
So embrace the memories
Celebrate their life as they celebrated life
While they were here
If you remember the feel of their hugs
Pass a Hug on…

It;s Sunday and the heart is flooded with tears..
Frat boys who throw throw things at Wounded Soldiers
Spit on them and their Service Dogs, Urinating on our Flag.
Life was uncertain while they served our Country, many now say and write the now understand the returning Vietnams…Continue

This is just a small insert from a book that I am currently writing:
~Chrysanna Aiyana Mahina
“Good Morning Beautiful!” as I look at myself in the mirror, fully naked at that! Brownish hair with streaks of glittering silver here and there. Two sparkling eyes of ocean blue. A smile that warms your body. Curves with few places that needs to be toned. A mother's body, for sure. Of course, there are still times I feel that I am “not beautiful”. When those days hit, I just listen to…Continue

There were but two beneath the sky-
The thing I came to kill, and I.
I, under covert, quietly
Watched him sense eternity
From quivering brush to pointed nose
My gun to shoulder level rose.
And then I felt (I could not see)
Far off a hunter watching me.
I slowly put my rifle by,
For there were two who had to die-
The thing I wished to kill, and I.

Oh our Mother the earth, Oh our Father the sky,
Your children are we, and with tired backs
We bring you the gifts you love.
Then weave for us a garment of brightness;
May the Warp be the white light of morning,
May the Weft be the red light of evening,
May the fringes be the falling rain,
May the border be the standing rainbow.
Thus weave for us a garment of brightness,
That we may walk fittingly wher ebirds sing,
That we may walk…
On this Easter
May you be Blessed to see Easter through the
Eyes of a Child
That has been taught the Real Reason for Easter
According to your…

So many struggle to tell their stories
Yet as i listen and try to put their stories into words
I have to see the emotion in their eyes
Is it great sadness or great memories
Watching their hands
As they clench them into a tight fist
Or silently place a hand…
