"Lenny-Lee Fest"

Today, I'm spreading
some LENNY Sunshine.
And we could all use
a little more sunshine, sometimes...

Slip Your Hand in Mine...

Take my hand,
And I’ll walk with you.
Make footprints in the sand
For an hour or two.

We can chat and laugh,
Or maybe just think,
With flirty eyes, a chuckle,
And cheeks scrunched up real high.

White snowflakes,
A Fall breeze,
Leaves rustling,
And warm sunlight wafting by.

We can dream on clouds,
In time or space.
Maybe fly on an elephant,
Or ride on a moose.

Feel the rain speckle our faces,
And our bare feet splash in puddles.
We can eat ice cream
And licorice, too. Red licorice.

Cuddle in a blanket on the couch
Or on the beach will do.
It matters not where or when.
As long as you Slip Your Hand in Mine
And we’ll be together again.

TO Lenny,
Close your eyes and imagine...
a voice & a face. 
Let this be FROM whoever you need it be from...

  1. Ditto, Jessica! Like I needed to get all weepy this early in the morning ... But it made me smile, too! :)

  2. Oh goodness. This is so beautiful.

  3. Oh Sheri, I was loving this until your note at the end, and now I'm crying.

    I think we all know who you mean, but that only makes it the more beautiful.

    Thank you.

  16. Your poem is so sweet. It makes me want to go outside and blow bubbles and draw with sidewalk chalk and fly a kite! I'm loving these Lenny posts. He and I share the same birthday. He's a beaming ray of sunshine in the blogosphere!

  17. I'm loving the sunshine, it's just what I needed today! Thank you!

  25. Beautiful poem, Sheri. You are such a gifted writer.

    I'm sorry I've been missing from the blogosphere lately - I can't see my favorite blogs from work anymore (firewall), and I used to do all of my blogging during my coffee and lunch breaks. Boo hoo, I'm so frustrated!

  26. This is really wonderful Sheri. A fantastic poem.

  27. That was really good! Got my memory banks activated...


!SPLAT Your Awesomeness! I'd love to hear from you!
