Ballerina Down Downtown

By Theresa H Hall, published on Sep 6, 2013

City lights surround

The stage set with a

Cast of three dancers

Ballerina down downtown

Transfixed I watch as your hand

Gracefully plays across imagined

Waves etched within the

Air around you

Ballerina down downtown

~~~

You lift your arms effortlessly

Reaching up as heavy drops of rain

Pound their rhythmic

Splashes of song

Ballerina down downtown

Two male dancers lift and

Pass you to-and-fro

Your slim body

Embraces the quickening beat

Ballerina down... (more)

It Does Pay To Take A Stand

By Theresa H Hall, published on Jan 20, 2012

Yesterday the Blackout only lasted for twelve hours, but the impact was very real, swift and made many U.S. Senators in Congress blink. It's really nice when this happens. The Internet is supposed to be the final frontier (let's face it, we'll never get on board The Enterprise), and a free space, whereby we Earthlings can do a walkabout without big government sticking their noses into our freedoms. They certainly have been trying to take some of our rights away for the last ten years, and we really need to continue to be vigilant watchdogs of this cyber environment. It's green here ... no noxious... (more)

Deck The Halls

By Theresa H Hall, published on Dec 6, 2011

Deck The Halls is that fabulous tune most of us hum or sing along with when the holiday season is upon us. You do not need be religious to enjoy the impact of Winter Solstice, Christmas, Old Saint Nick, Santa Claus, Hanukkah, Kwanza, New Year's Eve, colorful decorations, sleigh rides, or any other type of tradition or celebration people like to share. This song is joyful and frivolous, fun and nostalgic.

Deck the Halls Lyrics (A Welsh Song)

Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa la la la la, la la la la. Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la, la la la la. Don we now... (more)

Organize Your Pantry Before The Holidays

By Theresa H Hall, published on Nov 14, 2011

Ever open your refrigerator and groan when you find foods that have wasted away into puffy mounds of moldy spores? Ugh! Now is the time to get your refrigerator and pantry cleaned out, organized, and to check those use-by dates. Giving the pantry and refrigerator the once-over reminds us what we have hoarded away. Use it! Make a list so you don't duplicate ingredients or products on your next shopping trip. Look through recipes or cookbooks for ways to incorporate these foods into your upcoming meals.

Preparing for the seasonal holidays and festivities is a good practice. Before you... (more)

Dancing With Death

By Theresa H Hall, published on Jul 26, 2011

~~~~~

~~~~~

~~~~~

~~~~~

I am suffering yet I hear a tap within my head

I lie on hospital bed tubes attached to my arms

The pain I experience incredibly intense threshold

So I decide to close my eyes to open my mind

I behold a figure dressed like Macbeth

~~~~~

Strong arms reach round and guide me

Robes floating gracefully with each movement

We drift deeper and deeper away from pain

We reach a depth where I feel calm

Shining elaborate mask of Macbeth

~~~~~

These arms beckon me to dance

Senseless Brutality

By Theresa H Hall, published on Jul 24, 2011

(posted today on "Sleeping Kitten-Dancing Dog!")

Up until yesterday whenever I would think of Oslo, Norway , I visualized a clean, peaceful and safe place, filled with law-abiding citizens and a calm serenity most countries do not enjoy. Cultured comes to mind, too. On July 23, 2011 all that changed. No more will Norway’s people feel secure, and they have a diabolical cold-blooded murderer to thank for it.

The fact that this man wants to speak out at his hearing in court tomorrow is ludicrous! He want to justify his brutality delivered to the innocent and unsuspecting. He wants... (more)

Sixty Hours

By Theresa H Hall, published on Jul 15, 2011

Sixty Hours

Of the days in a week

Fridays the ones we seek

They make us pause think

Weekend's here in a blink

~~~~~~~~~

So from Friday evening

Till Monday's dawn

Sixty hours for enjoying

No time to yawn

~~~~~~~~~

Grab some friends

Cards food and drink

From gardens we tend

Cut flowers pink

~~~~~~~~~

Spread blankets down

Sitting on the ground

Enjoying the company

Making new memories

~~~~~~~~~

Between Midnight And Mondays

By Theresa H Hall, published on Jul 12, 2011

There's a place

I know

A place where

I go

Between Midnight

And Mondays

It takes no time

For me to find

Before tomorrow

Behind tonight

I enter the realm

Between Midnight

And Mondays

While I'm there

I dance and

Twirl my skirts

Flowing colors

Swirling round

My ankles bare

My head adorned

With roses pink

No thorns

My wings

Adorned by

Spirits filigree

Is Shared Residence Becoming The Trend?

By Theresa H Hall, published on Jul 1, 2011

I recall moving out of my Parents’ home and into my first efficiency apartment. It was one large room, with a full bath, and large walk-in closet (off the main room), and a tiny functional kitchen (I could barely turn around), but there was a small notion of a counter-top. No dishwasher though, unless you counted me, and back then I would let the dishes pile up. I met myself coming and going. My workdays and nightlife followed each other so closely, that I was barely and rarely home. I got about four to five hours sleep at night. This extreme living lasted a whole four months before I gave... (more)

A Medal Of Honor

By Theresa H Hall, published on Jun 1, 2011

Why is ours a world of badges and medals? This is a very good question to ponder since we just passed another Memorial Day. I question why we seek to join clubs, win badges of prestige and Medals of Honor? Who decided to use these little ribbons and coins of glory as measurements of our loyalties? Why do we strive so to accumulate decorations so that they can be displayed, seen and noticed?

I give thought to this matter because I have been deeply saddened from the time I could understand about war, and joining clubs, and societal displays of ones own dedications to a particular thing.... (more)
