Where’s the wind?

Juliet's Window II

it’ s October, and I’m wearing sandals and short sleeves…

Where’s the wind…

the door’s wide open and there’s no breeze

Where’s the wind….

the trees are asking and so are the leaves…

Where’s the wind…

she asks to lull me to sleep on a warm October’s eve

Silencio…listen…

… crickets and the rumbling of the dishwasher  must do

Dear Sophie

Don’t worry about …

the hand me downs worn until too tight

or the education they never believed you deserved

Don’t worry about …

the acknowledgement of any of your achievements you never received

or the way you were told to stay in your room until a month had passed

you’re free now — you’re the only one holding yourself back

You are free now …

to do as you please

to live your dream

to fly above the clouds

to shine your light so bright

to believe in the person you are and always were meant to be

trust God who knows all and remember to quit holding on so tightly.

Flying Dream Card

Moon Flower

Signed - Moon Flower

September moon shone brightly upon the lawn

tiptoeing outside in the evening dew

one ginormous Moon flower blossom beams bright white as it greets the night for a one night show

oh what a beautiful sight…

…soft, luxurious, delicate, velvety blossom – divided by soft lines of gold nectar to reveal a starfish hidden within

its debut – always unknown – like a babe born into this world

yet, the Moon flower’s purpose is to razzle dazzle like a magician – and put on a show – and a show it did put on – shining brightly through the night

thank you Moon Flower – until we meet again – good night!

Nightfall

 

he wrote once …

Signed Window Light

 

where does love go when the light goes out

a question to ponder

the answer, I believe is under the covers

faith steps in  and out

a dance, a rhythm of breath and sound

where does love go when the lights go out

love is always present

just whisper and listen

I’m here under the covers

August Anniversary

it’s been eleven years since we said i do

eleven years of adventure, challenges, laughter, travels, heartache, grief, courage, friendship, adapting to one another’s schedules

my love for you continues to expand

my gratitude for you grows like the pines that flank our property and the marigolds blooming in mid-August

love, ever grateful for you

happy #11 ~ love, me
