              Messages just about anything





Fluttering on a gentle prairie breeze





Spreading happiness and harmony.

Old badger looked out it's den
And with a special look said to me
Watch out if you get close
Otherwise I will let you be.
I'm still watching you

Effigy Mounds National Monument is in NE Iowa along the Mississippi River. is amazing artwork done with soil.The mounds preserved here are considered sacred by many Native Americans, especially the Monument's 20 culturally associated American Indian tribes. A visit offers opportunities to contemplate the meanings of the mounds and the people who built them. The 200 plus American Indian mounds are located in one of the most picturesque sections of the Upper Mississippi River Valley.

Thoughts Of Tranquility



How could I ever forget


The gentle moments


We have spent


On the prairie


Looking at the moon


And stars realizing


Where we should really be.







Let me make it plain to say

How much I love you



Each and every day



Let me tell you a secret



What kind of secret you say



You are the most beautiful



Ladies in the world



And just knowing you



I realize how well



Everything is going my way.
