Springtime Snow

You think that winter is over?
Well, friend I’ve got news for you
Because winter took a drastic turn
It has more it needs to do

For the snow fell during the night
A white-out as far as we can see
Yes, spring is on the way
But it doesn’t look that way to me

It’s important along with some sun
To get a few springtime showers
To help Mother Nature create
Our wonderful and fragrant flowers

I guess sometimes it is necessary
But I hope this is the final show
Before Mother Nature turns the corner
She must fashion some springtime snow!

Winter dies into the spring,
to be born again in the autumn.

Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things,
but just look what they do when they stick together.

Laughter is the sun
that drives winter
from the human face.

I was just thinking,
if it is really religion with these nudist colonies,
they sure must turn atheists in the wintertime.

Naked Tree

The naked tree of winter time
She has no clothes to wear
Nature took her fancy leaves
And left this tree so bare

She has no leaves to adorn her
She no longer dances in the wind
But come the Spring she will once again
Get some fancy leaves to shimmer in

She will have the leaves to shelter
The birds that come to nest
She will keep the baby birds safe
From the winds and rain and sun

She will sing and dance
In the Springtime breezes
And hold her arms up high
Yes, she has her summer dress on now
And loves to face the sky

My mom taught me

When everything is coming your way,
you're in the wrong lane

You are strong...
when you take your grief
and teach it to smile.

UNDONE

by Jan Helmbrecht

The ice
in crackle-crisp
caresses grassy blade;
invades the inclined glade.
I take the trip,
precise.

Intent,
I slip around
and land upon my face.
In vertical disgrace
upon the ground,
I'm spent!!!

Now one
who trusts my sense
will find me lying flat --
my nose within my hat.
I wax intense;
undone.

Ice and Fog

Like ice and fog, many things we take for granted until progress begins to take them away. Now we face the question whether a still higher 'standard of living' is worth its cost in things natural, wild and free. For us of the minority, the opportunity to drive through Lake Overholser Park is more important then a high definition television set.

In the bleak midwinter Frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, Water like a stone; Snow had fallen, snow on snow, Snow on snow, In the bleak midwinter, Long ago.

One More Mile

In only one more mile,
That is where I need to go.
There are trees covered with Ice and Snow
It is a beauty to behold,
This world now held in God's mold.
Tree branches laden with ice, brought down.
Some to lay upon the froze ground.

Animals and People alike, in disbelief.
They will be ready for the sunshine's relief.
But it is so good to be provided with
Food, water and Shelter.
To them, this is their world, and this
is what God's has dealt her.

I look at the frozen power lines.
They look as though covered with clear vines.
During the day the world looks coated
with other jewels and diamonds.
When the sun goes down in late evening,
The diamonds turn to gold. This makes
a beautiful and magnificent sight God has
Magically made for all eyes to behold.

Night soon to come when the sun has gone
below the horizon.
The colder and clearer it gets, as the
Moon in its splendor appears.
The moon makes it's hue of purple and blue,
in the tree branches icy limbs so frozen.
Eyes can hardly behold
The unique beauty as it unfolds.

Thank you God for this day,
for which you have made.
I thank you too for the length of time
You have provided for me to stay.
I never cease to enjoy,
All the bounties you employ.
Each day is an experience to behold.
Always a change of beauty and sites
for the eyes, ears, and hearts we were told.

I look to the Masterful Guide,
as I pass through life's way
To him I surrender all my pride,
He is my leader day after day.
I bid these beauties before me goodbye,
As I start toward home.
Only one more mile, down this icy red dirt road.
These branches, laden with ice, breaking and
falling to lay upon the red dirt.

This day is over and I must rest,
Before morning light again comes along.
I bid my lovely wife goodbye,
or she may come along.
To enjoy this world as I have discovered it to be.
Always, it seems delighted and welcoming to me.

Wise Words by a man named Don

Photo by John McCornack


1. Years of effort by residents and staff have resulted in Spanish Cove becoming one of the most desired retirement villages in the state.

2. Yet, how do you take one of the state’s premier retirement villages and make it better? Fortunately for me, I now have about 300 resident advisors with vast experience at making improvements. There have been many ideas and suggestions that if implemented, could make this place seem like the Promised Land.

3. To do everything is unrealistic. Yet there are clearly areas of focus that can soften the blow of an unstable economy and provide lasting benefits for current and future residents.

4. Though we face uncertain times we also have tremendous opportunity. Our climate is ripe for change, due to the Affordable Care Act and aging Baby Boomers. There is no better time than now to establish services and gain new revenue streams that help complete our life care offerings.

5. Great days are behind us but even better days are ahead. We are Spanish Cove and our desire is strong to leave things in better shape than when we first found them.

A Simple Redneck Poem

Dandelions

Bubba used to love to run and play in the snow
But now he just sits and looks out the window.
