Obsession

I have to admit I am

a bit obsessed

I have a blank journal

addiction and see it

continuing for a long time

I am drawn to them

To plain covers

To covers that are

funky and unusual

To the old school

black and white lined

composition books

There is never a blank journal

that doesn’t grab my

attention and twist

my arm to take

it home with me

 

My most recent find …

Lined composition notebooks

with plastic covers

Just what I needed to use

for my gardening journal

 

Now …

Colored pens are a

whole different story …

To Each His Own …

She was neat as a pin

Everything in its place

And…

A place for everything

Orderly …

Her life and her spirit

Always planning to the

final minute

Never wavering from

the original

 

He was spontaneous

A free spirit

A system of organized

clutter was his life

Yet …

When asked he could

put his finger on exactly

what was needed

 

She was the dark

to his light

The yin to his yang

The reason to his lack there of

 

Some wondered how they

could be a couple

Others saw immediately

the perfect fit

Never far from one another

Always touching with a

sly smile

Not caring what others thought

Knowing what worked for them …

Countless

 

There are countless

times in my life where

I thought I could depend

on someone

Trust them completely

with anything and everything

 

Silly me …

One day I will learn that no one

is as they seem

No one is truthful …

No one can be trusted …

 

The only one I can depend on

at all times …

in all situations …

is me

Make It So …

 

Life gives us the opportunity

to do and be anything we choose

It only takes a small step of faith

to get started

Gently words of encouragement

And …

Friendly support

 

In the words of

Captain Jean Luc Picard

MAKE IT SO …

You Were But a Phase

You Were But a Phase

 

Life like the Moon comes in phases

Maybe not as often nor as regular

but phases none the less

 

You came into my life when I

wasn’t looking nor wanting

a relationship … but there you were

 

Things were awkward …

Never really gelled well

between us …

Perhaps we were too much alike

and each refused to submit to the other

Not that submission is a good thing

But … for us we had to realize it

would never be a 50/50 partnership

 

As e.e. cummings suggests …

“…for life’s not a paragraph

And death i think is no parenthesis…”

We were in a phase

Never to be one to sync

Never to be on the same page

at the same time

 

That phase ended and

so did we …

Possibility …

What do you wish?

What do you think you really

want to do … to be?

What do you dream?

 

Life is full of possibilities …

we only have to reach out

and grab the brass ring as

the world goes by

 

Hold tight and never let go …

My Life …

My life will never be

some wonderful love story

will never be a saga for the ages

will never be even one book

But …

I get to live all those things

when I read

I get to feel things I

could never feel in any

other way

I get to travel and have

experiences that will

never be reality

I get to escape when needed

I get to dream

I get to be anyone I want

each and every time

I open a new book …

Midnight …

Midnight …

Spring and still awake

deep into the night

Through my open

window sounds of darkness

Crickets …

An occasional night-bird calling …

A roaming cat’s lonely call …

Tires singing on the highway

as travelers make their way

home … or running away

A restlessness comes over

me as I cannot sleep

Oh to be a cricket enjoying

the cool spring night

Or … a night-bird sharing

its song for those awake to listen

Maybe a cat … free to roam and

enjoy the night

But …

Most of all …

to have tires singing beneath

me as I drive away to parts

Unknown …

Nature …

 

Spring is my favorite time of year

Entering the scene with a flourish

of blossoms and greening of the world

 

Each day brings something new…

wonderful…

and …

amazing…

 

My daily walks are uplifting to

body…

mind…

soul…

as I see something new and

beautiful each day

giving thanks to the wonder

of Nature …

Outside My Window …

Outside My Window …

 

Early spring morning watching the fog

melt away to the dawn I wonder what

is in store today …

 

This my time …

The time of day to be a bit

Pensive …

Reflexive …

And …

Make plans … that always

change in the blink of an eye …

But …

That is my option …

my choice …

my  life …

going with the flow

knowing that if it

doesn’t happen today

there is always tomorrow

 

I continue to remember

the following Mary Oliver quote …

“…to learn something by

being nothing …”

 

I don’t think of myself as

‘nothing’ but the nothing

is a quiet observation that

opens not only my eyes

but my mind and my senses

 

When the fog lifts and the

mist has burned away will

be my time in nature …

my time to fuss over my

small garden

and be surprised with

new sprouts and newly

appearing veggies from

the day before

And …

Content with my life

I smile …
