High School Graduation

Selecting gifts at our local mercantile

I fell in love with Pink Champagne

 

On my wish list each and every

possible piece of this coveted luggage

 

When it was all said and done

I received all the pieces …

even the garment bag

 

Unbelievable …

I had never owned luggage

of my own and this was

like winning the lottery

 

Never had I received

a gift so important

To a small town girl

dreams of travel

danced in my head …

Hawk’s Paradise

Early Saturday morning…
An outdoor chapel
atop a hill overlooking
the winding Guadalupe
as it meanders through
rugged hill country beauty
 
Gracefully…
Majestically…
Soaring overhead as
poetic words are
shared with the group
 
The hawk…
drawn to the beauty
of an early Autumn morning…
the gathering of believers…
Or…
the soothing words being
read by our leader 
Glides above us in
all its glory
 
Regardless of the reason
The Hawk becomes 
A Prayer…
A benediction of sorts
Honoring nature’s 
grace and beauty

This poem was inspired from a moment years ago when I attended a Writing Retreat held at Mo Ranch Presbyterian Center located in the Texas Hill Country along the Guadalupe River outside Hunt, Texas. The picture above is the actual place … Chapel on the Hill at Nicklos Place overlooking the amazing Guadalupe River Valley below. This retreat is very special to me and where I go to unwind, recharge, and regroup when life becomes more than I want to admit.

Rain Down

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

Leaves…

That Autumn
I saw a blaze of
color against a
brilliant blue sky
 
You took me where
the beauty came
shining through
 
A beauty that can 
only be seen where
the nights are cold
and the afternoons warm
 
Leaves like I have
never seen
Colors I did not
know existed
 
My excitement
through your
eyes reminded me
of Van Morrison 
And…
When the Leaves
Come Falling Down
 
Such a happy time
Neither of us knew
it was soon to end

DUST…

We are of the Stars…
Beings from long ago
living on borrowed time
 
The Universe at any
time could revert to 
the past…
Scattering us all like
dust particles and 
grains of sand
 
What holds us all
together keeping 
that from happening?
 
Our love…
The purity of
that is recognized
and honored
for Eternity
 
Give me your hand
My Love…
Follow my heart
for our two dust
specks may just
be the thing
holding the
Universe together…

Secret Afternoon…

Secret Afternoon…

Late Spring…
A gentle warm day
The afternoon spent 
lazing in the sun
Sharing their passion
Stolen moments…
 
He had to leave…
She must stay…
lounging in the 
afterglow of 
what they shared
 
Later…
She collects her 
book…
quilt…
 
And…
 
with sandals in hand
walked barefoot to
her car stopping to
check where she had
been quietly reading 
for any signs…
any indications…
of their secret 
meeting in the park
before stealing away
to that lovely…
     private…
            meadow…
 
She smiled knowingly
secretly…
reliving the afternoon
 
A deep breath
Squaring her shoulders
she resigned to go home
prepare dinner as though
nothing had changed

Someday…

Someday…
Life will be
Different
Secrets will be
Revealed
Trust will be
the Norm
Not…
the hoped for
 
Someday…
You and I
will not hide
from each other
 
Someday…
You and I 
will not ignore
what we feel
 
But…
 
Embrace our
friendship openly

The Mirror

“… I’ve brought you a mirror.
Look at yourself and remember me.”
~ Rumi ~
 

The Mirror

I am who I am
Because of you
 
There is nothing
I could possibly
say to you…
give to you…
do for you…
to express
my feelings…
my gratitude…
my caring…
for who you 
are to me
for what you
have done to 
make me … Me
 
Find a quiet place…
A peaceful time…
and
look at you in a mirror
 
What you see is
what I see
The person in my
life I could never
be without
 
And…
 
Smile because
you are
Loved…

Halcyon Days

Halcyon Days

Gone are the times
Those summer days
When all we needed
was one another
 
Halcyon Days…
That left us hungry
Yet…
Only for each other
That left us thirsty
Yet…
The only quench was
a deep kiss
 
We only needed
love…
laughter…
sun…
And ~
time…
 
Days spent in
each other’s arms
The only solace…
The only need…
The only respite…
 
Youth spent
Yet ~
Wants…
Needs…
Desires…
Still the same
 
I long for those days
Those Halcyon Days…
Wrapped in your strong arms
Holding me…
Leading me…
Teaching me…
to live my life
Enjoy myself to
the fullest
To love…
 
Old does not
mean aged…
Nor forgetful
of what once was
 
Old…
gives those memories
those days of youth
spent in love and longing…
desire and fulfillment
 
Searching still for the
will and passion to continue

relationship openly
