Southern Comfort – April PAD 5

Leave a comment

Southern Comfort

I grew up

in the South

with Deep Southern roots

Family and food

Go hand in hand

Food for comfort…

Food for celebration…

Food for family…

Too many wonderful

recipes to count

But…

When things were

not going well

we always turned

to basic comfort food

And…

To me

that was

Potato ANYTHING!

Winter Magic

Winter Magic

There is a strange silence

in falling snow like living

inside a cotton ball

 

Outside the absence of

sound is comforting

like being cradled

in a mother’s arms

 

Inside the sound is so

different …

Similar to wearing

ear muffs of childhood

 

I am sure there is

a scientific explanation

for the silence of

falling snow

But…

To me it is only

Winter Magic…

Country Morning…

Leave a comment

Country Morning…

Country life…

Early morning walk

and the accompanying sounds

 

The neighbor’s Palomino

Whinny’s softly as I go by –

he is home this morning

and not in my barn lot

 

The rooster on the corner

has been crowing since

4:30 AM but now he has

company …

Never before heard cocks

are competing with him

today trying to wake the sun…

One to the north on the

next street over

And…

Another one somewhere

to the East

 

It is a definite serenade

in the early morning darkness

Silencing the owl that

usually greets me when I

enter his domain

 

What new wonders await

me before I get home to

the warmth of my

kitchen and a cup of coffee

Rain Down

Low and sweet
Your soul rains
down on mine
Bringing a music
only we can hear

Coming Home

Escape was all
she could think
Driving all night 
through pouring
rain that kept
the windshield
fogged mixing 
with her tears
 
She didn’t know
where she was…
where she was going…
the road sang beneath
her tires accompanied
with drums of raindrops
 
Just around the bend…
a rise in the road and
dawn splitting through
the last of the clouds
She saw a neon sigh
 
Flashing…
     gas…
guitars…
     gas…
guitars…
 
A sign in a 
sign in a sign…
She needed gas
and it was time again
to have a guitar
 
Stopping…
she felt like she
was coming home…

Happiness

Happiness

My happiness does not
depend on you
Nor…
Does your happiness
depend on me
 
There are times we
have to accept that 
there will be
unhappy days…
weary days…
and give each other
the space needed to
find our own way
home
 
So…
 
We once again
are able to be
Happy Together…

Lead Me

So many concerns
and insecurities
always just below
the surface
 
Lacking in knowledge…
education…
Yet
Always willing
to learn
 
You guide me
through the insecurities
Encourage me…
Compliment me…
Always there for me
to catch me…
Pick up the pieces…
Leading me on
my continued journey…

The Darkness

The Darkness

The darkness is
calling…
pleading…
 
Come to me
Come to my side
I will shelter you
 
The Darkness is
comfort…
support…
 
A place to turn
when all is lost
And…
All hope is
gone
 
There is a 
strange beauty 
in the Darkness
 
I choose to 
go there as
I turn and 
walk away from
the Light

Blessed

You give more
than you ever
receive
 
Always taking
care of me
my wants…
my desires…
my needs
over your own
 
I am so very
Blessed to have
You in my Life
 
One day I hope
to give to you
as much as You
always give
to Me

Celebration

You surprise me
with your love…
 
Taking me to
new heights…
new places…
new pleasures…
 
We have celebrations
and grow closer
every time with 
a deeper sharing…
a deeper understanding…
a deeper passion
 
Accepting each other’s
needs…
differences…
desires…
 
In a celebration 
of our Union
