Post Cards

Standard

As you may know I have been raising funds for the Royal Council Foundation in order to support less privileged children across the globe. The Foundation provides these children shelter, medical services, nourishment, and education in their home country. Donations are always welcome but here is a way you can support these children without access to their daily needs by buying a postcard.

Who buys postcards these days? Well you of course. Humans still desire that need for a handwritten gesture from a friend, colleague or family member. It says a lot when you see their writing that says come visit, it is fabulous to be done with that project, grandma has finished her cancer treatment and other greetings I am sure you have wanted to say.

This is your chance to aide two birds with a pen, thank a friend and support those in need, all the proceeds going to the Royal Council Foundation. Whether you buy the 4 of them together or a single one you will be bringing happiness and smiles to several faces. Thank you so much in advance for your donation purchase.

OASIS

Surrounded by barren land

Viewed as devastation to many

Amongst the decay and ruin

Comes perfection beheld

In the thought of the on looker

For each it is different

The images soaked in history

Or in what lies ahead

Though the feeling is the same

Ability to completely relax

Assured in their goals attained

Oasis

WELCOME

A city so calm

Relaxed is the atmosphere

Where you are from, doesn’t matter

Where you are going, need not worry

Stay and rest

Talk if you want or don’t

We don’t mind

Hunger or thirsty, we’ll quench that

There is plenty to eat, so rest your feet

Accept my hospitality, this is our home

Welcome

A great way to invite someone to come visit and tell them you miss you.

HAPPY ENDING

Guru talks wellness of being

Monk silently shows compassion

Preachers give sermons of love

With love,

Would Want

Standard

try to be passive
only to fail
try and be assertive
not a personality trait
try to survive
put food on the table
though received
those unable to stomach
try to work simply
find continual bombardment
try to be one self
told this is who
you are
left with only the freedom
of wanting to be me

-Jennie Nawrocki

Images

Standard

images melt
into stories
one person
in many parts
all absorbed
shows with
each picture
feelings imposed
through manipulation
bring emotional
dealings and healings
they say
are quick fixes
why does it
feel so horrible

-Jennie Nawrocki

Optimism 

Standard

optimism once came freely

able to know that

there would be something 

not more worse

than this moment 

however presently

these have become 

crept into our daily lives

shedding off these

layers of issues 

leeches among us

our emotions find

something to

look forward to

-Jennie Nawrocki 

Be

Standard

unable to concentrate

for the world

continues to be active

with so much

barrage of info

being completely

everything and nothing

for it all closes in

those walls pressing

saying just

do this, be this

leave this but

what ever you do

be there

just be there

-Jennie Nawrocki

 

 

People and Places

Standard

people and places
they increase
with every year
meeting new faces
and some
so familiar
it is as though
they never parted
though with each
day full of events
this travel
for business
or time off
taking in
all that surrounds
only gives
wisdom amongst
activities experienced
allowing us
to age well
though feel
as young as
those just beginning

-Jennie Nawrocki

Castles

Standard

its edges slope
into deep crevasses
filled with
water thick
of sludge and waste
rank smells
travel moss walls
ornate in design
with towers interspersed
rising even taller
giving a border
to contents within
a city shining
with several
profitable exchanges
completed by
serfs and vagrants
the first greeters
with their
own neighborhood
functioning within a
larger kingdom
with rulers
present and past
all different qualities
of government
living in the
enormous main
rooms for individuals
of varying status
with others inside
or outside
the outer perimeter
are Invited for
wonder, marvel
and general ambiance
of pure enjoyment
within one room
of those
larger walls
comprised of
stone, wood
soil and sand
holding formation
all around
while furniture
dapples the
empty interior
trimmed in gold
or covered
with fabric
the simplicity
of it all
depends on
fortunes of kingdoms
and all
their contributors
from communities
having built
every spot
from the middle
to the outskirts
of their very
own castle

-Jennie Nawrocki

Links

Standard

missing links
you think
of time passing
that lull
between frames
of meetings
when events
of the past
frequent in moments
become non existent
again beginning
something again
that never thought
you would do
for the cessation
of activity
to resume again

-Jennie Nawrocki
