Quirky (three poems)


          (My lovely quirky girls)

she is unusual and unexpected
in ways that may surprise you
or worst worries you

for that, you call her quirky

but her weirdness is her best asset
she stands out from the crowd
she is inspiring and memorable

still, you call her quirky

she is indeed quirky for
she is interesting and unique
in a most adorable way


She is not your average girl
Not even by far close to normal
She’s off-kilter
Her smile though
Is romantic
Promising and charming
It wrinkles up her face
And when it’s gone
You knew its hidden somewhere
You alone can find

She is not your average girl
Not even by far close to normal
She’s off-kilter
Her heart though
Is affectionate
Amiable but ambitious
It makes her vulnerable
And when she’s weak
You knew it’s her strength
You alone bring out the hero in her

Oh, how you love her just perfectly.


She doesn’t don’t know how to act
but with a sense of urgency

She doesn’t know how to care
without thinking too much and feeling too much

She doesn’t know how to be quiet and sit still and allow her mind to settle

She is always asking, experiencing, struggling and finding meaning

She is passionate and misunderstood of being finicky rather than simply striving for excellence

She is an artist, deep, creative
And not your average girl

Dream, Princess -Quadruple Etheree


Dream, Princess -Quadruple Etheree



Dream bigger

“Go my princess”

My! you love it Dad

Oh gee such a dreamer

Like Ariel, “Little Mermaid”

I frequently lose track of time

Skirrs museums and art galleries

I was a dreamer, back then as a kid



What I see

To everyone

Around in me

Optimist, you said

Reminds you of Belle from

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast”

Dad, I was your princess always

Curiosity is innate in me

You applaud me for that, how proud you are.


It’s been

Years you’re gone

I remembered

We dream together

To Disneyland, we go

That didn’t happen you’re gone

“I went to Dad, with my princesses”

They too are dreamers, like you and I

We dream we soar, and we make it happen


You know

I almost

Forgot, to say

Pocahontas is

Who I grew up to be

I am always a dreamer

With a great sense of optimism

Empowered, vested and entitled

Has become of me, your little princess.






A whimsical etheree in remembrance of our recent trip to disneyland and in honor of “believing in dreams and making it happen”.
