’57 Chevy

My Dad gave me
his car when I
went off to
college in 1971
 
A green 1957
4-door sedan
considered a classic
 
Not the coveted ’57
The 2-door one
the sporty one
with chrome
and sassy interior
 
But…
the family sedan
Basic…
Radio and
3-speed column shift
 
It’s only redeeming
quality … the color
Emerald green
My favorite color
was blue
Green…so, I
named it
the Lizard!

End of the Day

With a relaxed sigh
my favorite chair
before the fire
and a glass of wine
I begin to unwind
 
A long day…
But …
A good one
A day that
leaves me
happy…
smiling…
and
remembering…
 
I have friends
who love me…
care for me…
and do special
things for me…
 
I am blessed…
And…
Give thanks to 
the ones who
make it possible
 
A perfect ending
to a wonderful day
having loving friends
and being loved
in return

The Longest Day

The Longest Day

Why…
We have argued
All Day…
 
At this point
I can’t even
remember how it
started…
or who said what
 
But…
It has been a
battle all day
A war of words
 
The longest day
And…
I still don’t know
Why?…

The Sky You Were Born Under*

The Sky You Were Born Under*

Looking up at
Midnight the sky
is amazing
Winter stars dancing
Through their paces
 
The view from outside
the city is unbelievable
There are things in the 
night sky you see
no other place
 
The Moon whispers
to the Stars…
This is how 
we made them…
how we gave
them life…
language…
their souls…
their true being…
 
Their place under
the heavens determines
who and what
they are..
will be…
will become…
 
If they only
listen…
Hear the ancient
words…
Heed the wisdom
And…
Learn the lessons
of the Old Ones
 
So…
 
They will be able
to pass this life along
to all who will come
after…
becoming one
with us…
the universe…
the Moon and
Stars

An Echo in Time

An Echo in Time

During my life
I have lived in
many houses…
many apartments…
many places…
 
Always…
there is that special sound
a slight noise
almost unnoticed
 
A sound across
Time…
The tinkling of a bell…
is it a spirit…
a ghost…
a lost soul…
my soul…
 
Could be all…
Could be nothing…
Yet…
It is always there
in a new house
in a new town
following me
across Time

Shadows

Shadows

Shadows …
They are elusive
and mysterious
 
Not always as
they seem
Sometimes they
follow…
Others
they remain still
 
Taking time
to observe…
to wonder…
in hidden
silence
 
I feel my
Shadow is
often more
alive than
the real
Me…

Nearing Midnight

Almost Midnight

Waiting…
Nearing midnight
Longing…
 
This is my time
To share
Or
Not…
 
To give of
myself…
Or
Not…
 
Where are you?
Why are you so elusive?
My needs and
Desires go
Unnoticed
You ignore me
Ignore my will
 
Waiting…
Nearing Midnight…
Longing…
 
Neither comes…
Sleep…
        Nor
my Muse

Setting Me Free

Setting Me Free

I look down on
your sleeping face
So different from
the waking one
 
I see the scared
and lonely little
boy you try
to hide
The one you
try to protect
from eventual pain
 
Tenderly I brush
a hair from your
eyes…
Swallow a sob
And
Turn to go
 
One last look…
An eye-blink snapshot
in my mind
to hold you to me
like this…
a reminder…
a treasure to keep
in my heart…
 
I can’t stay…
 
My Pain is so
much deeper
than yours
 
Leaving is the only
option to set you
Free…

Summer Time

Splashes of blue
and purple on
a field of white
 
My favorite colors
repeated over and
over again on my
eyelet sundress
 
The one you love
for me to wear
The one that
holds memories
 
It makes me
smile to see the 
light in your eyes
 
Knowing what
is planned later
A country drive
in your convertible
to worship nature
and each other

Wings

Walking outside
Gazing at the
Full Moon
 
Basking in it’s
Magick
Face upturned
Arms outstretched
in Praise…
Worship…
Supplication…
 
A gentle roll of
the shoulders
And…
Her Wings
Unfurl
Freedom…
At Last
