Grace 


I’ve inhaled tbe spell of honeysuckles
I’ve invented my own fortune,
spinning them into the fabric of my skin.
I leave poems behind for you to read
I sing you songs made of
moonshine and starlight.
The keening of my heart
in every note.
I no longer believe in stories with no endings
but I do believe we create
our own beginnings.

    Hope and sadness are not so different sadness is when you are so down you see no light even in a room full of light. Hope is you looking for light in the darkest time but still have doubt that no light is there. I think in sadness we find hope because in hope there is sadness if it weren’t we would believe with no doubt and without doubt no sadness. Or maybe I am just rambling

  2. Oh, that is just beautiful.

    I just made a playlist I call “Special Songs”. It’s only two songs long, at the moment. I love them because your voice on them is so spectacular and the subject matter deals with things sacred and spiritual. The songs I’ve chosen from your soundcloud recorded songs are: “Have Yourself a Very Merry Christmas and ” Hallelujah”. I have to say that that is the best version of ‘Christmas’ I have ever heard!

      1. Hi, Sherrie! Enjoyed your site, also!
        Better yet is to visit Tosha’s soundcloud account. You can listen on Android, or just through the browser. There isn’t a way that I know of to link to the specific songs (I wanted to add them to my blog playlists), so you can just go to soundcloud and listen to them there. You can also make an account to have your own playlist, do follows, etc.

  4. The hundredth person to like this sad but beautiful poem; a little mystic too, but look to the light and leave your sadness behind, even though it is very difficult in these trying times. The song goes really well with the poem, and enjoyed it a lot. Sometimes the writing of a wonderful piece like this can in itself help. Strength, happiness, best wishes and blessings, Charles.

      1. You know if I told you everytime your posts have inspired me, well, I would have to change the blog name to thelonelyToshablog. You are a wonderful writer. Now let’s get down to more serious matters; your Avatar,
        is that a dress or a blouse. You know I love women’s clothes. And I just adore the loo of that outfit. (Now, all of your followers who don’t know me thinks this Chimp is gay). lol Have a good one. xoxo

    I love this, Tosha, as I love all your words. Thank you for sharing your beautiful soul.
    My apologies for not stalking your page lately. I’m doing Camp NaNoWriMo (last years was my first time,) and so naturally, I’ve been busy writing. I have really missed visiting and getting to know you. Hopefully I can be around more consistently pretty soon. Until then, I wish you and your girls the best, and have a lovely evening!

    ((((Hugs)))))

      1. Come on, I can´t read that at 9 a.m. makes me…. well, it melts my heart and I feel like you know like…. I will have to write a love poem thinking about you, although I should add that I picture you nude, it may not sound ver correct, well actually it sound not good at all, but, I even told the psychologist of the hospital when she was “interviewing” me about my “bad” drinking hobits, well I did tell her I suffer from OCF ( Obsessive Compulsive Flirt) or that every girl I see to me I want to, well, nail her, there has to be something wrong, or out of control in my brain…. 😉
        Love ya beautiful

      2. Ha! Happy to see your illness hasn’t impaired your inappropriate talent for flirting. You still got it, kid. Look after yourself and feel better. Hope your on the mend soon

      3. No illness will amend my phisical troubles, ask the nurses. I´m like a kid ain´t I ? At the same time I did live a life that very few will ever know. I´m a walking contradiction, but the “kid” always be in me, I can “act” like an adult, but bores me, so, what do you want me to make you for dinner?
