In Tuscany

???????????????????????????In Tuscany

In Tuscany I learned magnifico

As sunshine danced his classic face, my mood

Da Vinci would embrace; Bravissimo!

I had Chocolate; He, pistachio

In a Bistro we bestowed our gratitude

Arms entwined we did define magnifico

His eyes a deep insight of indigo

Mere pleasantries we ascertained as prude

The atmosphere it was bravissimo!
A kiss, we christened this our interlude

As a cry escaped our sighs; “Magnifico!?????????????????

We ventured to an obscure bungalow

The sunset on the distant multitude

A crowd cheered from afar; “Bravissimo!”

Chianti, candles, tiramisu, and Oh!

These flames exude his name with magnitude

In Tuscany I learned magnifico

Leonardo never knew bravissimo!

Learning to Lose Love (When people you love are disloyal)


Post from the 2012 Presidential Election on Third Party Jill Green

sharon sharing insights

Do you feel like you just do not want to vote in this Presidential election because you aren’t comfortable with either candidate? Or do you feel that you need to vote for one whether or not you really agree with all of his party’s platform? If you do not want to vote for either one of these two corporate-funded Presidential nominees, please don’t just vote for the less of two evils, and don’t sit-out the election in despair and protest, instead I urge you to please go to Presidential third-party nominee Jill Stein’s and her VP running mate Cheri Honkala’s Green New Deal Party website @  and and see what they have to offer you. Stein is the only candidate who is for the 99%…the rest of us! If all of us who do not really like or want to continue as we are IN the hands of…

Learning to Lose Love

LoyaltyThe Loyalty Firm 2Never let anyone diminish youLearning to Lose Love

To delve through this heap of trash piled high before my eyes

From the cold dark black reaper who brought down our blameless lives

How could I have borne his children? Played the virulent role of wife?

Those I loved and raised through sunshine and tears

Carried in my body nine months; love endlessly through years

Tried to mull through all the mire; should have left once more than many times

But you love(d) him so it seemed no matter what or why

You have no conception of the countless nights I cried… and died

Survival often times dictates that we create our own reality

And you live yours as I do mine… and for me it’s desolate right now

Since my very soul, it bleeds.

For I am a person of flesh, blood and bones, no validation needed, I am me and me I own.

But words defy how icy cold I feel to be me standing endlessly alone.

And I don’t have to agree with your philosophies, principles or how you live your life

I discern you are you and though I feel it is unequivocally fundamental to have been loyal and true

I will never beg for the same gifts of trust, respect and loyalty from a superfluous you.

I won’t ask those things of anyone but I know what’s right for me

And degradation and betrayal choke my life-blood, currently to an insurmountable degree.

And it will do the same to you because, as you will someday see

Perhaps long after I’ve departed from your life, maybe for eternity

You have blamed, berated, and slandered me for every adversity in your life

I’ve allowed you to smash me down to nobody and worship the “powers” that you perceive to “be”.

And for those insolent trivial persons you bashed in my skull and left me here to bleed

Only when karma comes around to you will you wake up and see the deed

And it’s all so dirty, not so pretty, so I’ll remove myself and hold my peaceful solid ground

And I’ll stand for what I believe; and care not a scrap for the (crap) that they fling around.

Because words cut deep for a little while and indifference prickles my heart

But disloyalty can never be quite ever squared for it breaks the foundation of unconditional love

Without which we all crumble around into the sacred ground that used to house our hearts.
