Fog …

On this last day of

February – a leap day

the fog slid in quietly

not on little cat feet

as Frost tells us

but…

as ghosts floating

among the skeletal trees

 

This February leap day

began with a wide open

expanse of a stars in a

deep purple velvet sky

A heavy dew dripping

from the eaves like a

unseen spring rain

 

In the light of day

the ghosts arrive and

hide what I know will

be a spectacular blue

sky day … warm and

inviting us all outside

 

Days like this are the

true jewels of spring

hiding a surprise

of the day that will

be appreciated more

as the sun breaks through …

To Touch the Stars

To Touch the Stars

There are special times in life

when we are given the

opportunity to experience

something remarkable

 

To reach out and

touch the stars…

to become one

with the night…

one with the

Universe…

 

Never let that

opportunity pass you

by in life

It is something that

may not happen again

 

The Universe is there

for us to experience

yet, we must be open

and aware when the

right time is presented

to us and realize

that amazing moment

for what it is …

Melting Time …

Melting Time…

As I become older

time becomes more

and more fluid

Daliesque …

Melting …

Moving too quickly

Or

Too slow depending

on what is going on

in my life

Age does that to

a person or so

I have been told

 

Recently, time seems

to be melting faster

than before

In the blink of an eye

hours have passed

nothing is accomplished

 

At this stage of my life

however …

I have no schedules to follow

No deadlines that must

be met daily

So time melting into

itself is something

I can enjoy when

I lose myself in a book…

Become one with a

story I am writing

or reading…

and suddenly the

day is drawing to

twilight

 

I smile and tell

myself it is what

was supposed to

happen today…

or yesterday…

or even tomorrow…

 

Time is a fleeting

precious thing and

I intend to enjoy it

in any way possible

Those melting periods

are absolutely delicious …

No Grudges…

No Grudges

No Grudges…

I have come to a point in

my life where moving on

seems to me the norm

rather than the exception

 

I have grown and changed,

different interests,

what once was important

I now realize were distractions

 

No regrets …

I have simply outgrown those

people…

activities…

thoughts…

that once controlled me

 

I realized I do not want

or need to be controlled

I want to be me

Do, feel, and say what

is important to me

not someone who could

care less about me and

my feelings…

my wants…

my desires…

my needs…

 

There are no regrets

and most important

of all …

There are no grudges

 

A former boss and a

former boyfriend both

had this motto:

“I don’t get mad …

I get even” …

For me I just not

longer care about

what once seemed

important

People who only were

available when they

wanted something

therefore …

my growing…

my moving on…

was because they and

their presence became

irrelevant in my life…

Finding My Way Home

Finding My Way Home

From time to time

I find myself lost

Not knowing where

to turn next

Not knowing what

to do next

Not knowing who

I can trust …

I can turn to …

 

In those times

I have to find

ME…

I have to get

to know myself…

I have to decide

which way is

Home …

Or …

Look for a new one

Create a new one

Because …

I can never go back…

I can only go

FORWARD …

Missing You…

Missing You…

I miss you …

in the morning

when your pillow is empty

I miss you …

when I come home

to no one

I miss you…

the way you pulled me

tight in your sleep

spooning …

I miss you …

kissing each eye and

then my lips

I miss you …

calling me ‘Kid’

the name only

you called me

I miss you …

when I put on

your flannel shirt

and floppy socks

I miss you …

your essence

your presence

your heart

your love

I miss you …

the place under

your chin is no

longer there

for me to

rest my head

I miss you …

every time I change

the sheets and your

Ropers are right

there under the bed

I miss you …

every minute of

every day

I miss you …

with every visit

to your final

resting place

I Miss YOU …

Always Open …

My downfall …

Or is it …

Always Open …

Open to new people…

Ideas…

Opportunities…

Too trusting of these

Always thinking

the best of others

the best of opportunities

Yet …

My open trust has led to

pain …

heartache…

and being taken

advantage of by  those

who prey on the

trust of people like me

White Noise

There it is again …

The noise that is

there but not there

Running through my

brain in the middle

of the night

 

Soundless … yet

so loud it wakes

me night after night

Frozen in Time …

Frozen in Time …

She held his pocket watch

in both hands

Remembering…

 

How many times

had she done this

same thing as a child?

 

He had two actually …

The railroad watch

with a train running

across the bottom

just below the ‘6’

His everyday watch

The one that he

slipped into his

right pocket each

morning before going

off the work

to build another bridge

connecting ribbons of

highway all across

the state

 

The other …

A gold watch with  a

snap cover and a red

stone embedded in

the top of the stem

His Sunday watch

The watch with a

chain that draped

across the fancy vest

he wore that sported

a special pocket for

the watch and a

buttonhole for the

toggle end of the

chain ..

draped just so across

his mid section

 

I inherited both

upon his death

And …

even though he was

buried in his Sunday

best, the full suit

I kept the Sunday

watch as mine

And …

his Railroad watch

went in to its rightful

place in his pocket

as it should have been
