Sonnet to the Middle Sister

Only the middle sister truly knows
The challenges of being two in one:
A mentor to the youngest as she grows,
And scapegoat for the eldest to have fun.

You always know the perfect thing to say
To make us laugh until the point of tears.
You’ve cared for us in each and every way
And brought us so much joy throughout the years.

And neither of us know where we would be
Without you there to make life such a game.
No matter where you stand among us three
We both adore and love you just the same.

So Happy Birthday, Sister Number Two!
Love always, the big sister who loves you!


Happy Birthday to my awesome little sister! Keep on being the amazing person you are! I love you!

The Most Important Man

The most important man
That a girl will ever know
Is the man who gives her everything
To help her learn and grow.

The most important smile
That a girl will ever see
Is of proud encouragement
For the woman she can be.

The most important words
That a girl will ever hear
Are the first to say she’s beautiful,
Intelligent and dear.

The most important lesson
That a girl will ever learn
Is that he’s the only man
To whom she can always turn.

He loves his daughter dearly,
Gives her everything he can.
And I wouldn’t be this woman
If it weren’t for that man.

I don’t know how to thank him
For the things he always did
To give me the greatest life
Ever since I was a kid.

But I know he’ll always be there
To catch me if I fall.
And of all the men I know,
He’s the greatest one of all.

So thanks for being awesome
And for everything you do!
Happy Father’s Day to you, Dad,
From a daughter who loves you!


Happy Father’s Day to my amazing dad! Thank you for all the love and support you’ve given me my whole life! I love you!

Tease If You Please (Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge #151)

Every time you tease
I can’t help but laugh out loud
To please your humor

Please forgive my tricks
But I just could not resist
Teasing you that way

Tell me if you please
Why I can’t stop smiling now
At the way you tease


My responses to Ronovan WritesWeekly Haiku Challenge #151: Please & Tease. For once, I’m actually posting in the same week! Hope you enjoy the haikus! Thanks for the prompt, Ronovan!

In Memoriam

Memories, old and new, of
Every life lost among the
Many brave souls who fight for an
Overwhelming love for their country
Remain in our hearts with our
Infinite gratitude for their service.
America remains free thanks to the
Lives of those who defend it!

Don’t forget the sacrifice of those who
Always gave everything for our nation.
Your lives will always be remembered!


Blessings to all you readers who have lost a loved one in military service. Have a peaceful Memorial Day weekend!

Beheld In These Eyes (Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge #146)

All that others see
Contradicts the truest love
Hidden in my heart

Plain dark irises
Conceal the sweet perfection
Only I can see

Wonder to behold
All the beauty I have found
In your lovely eyes


My responses to Ronovan WritesWeekly Haiku Challenge #146: Behold & Eye. I know I’m late again, but I just couldn’t resist this theme either! Thanks for the prompt, Ronovan!
