Where Did It All Begin, My Love?


Where did it all begin, My Love? you embracing my spirit

drawing me into your essence, as if we had always known

each other? The smell of your hair, your eyes

holding infinity, I was lost in you

from the beginning. Perhaps

it was the depth of your dark brown skin,

I had never known such beauty

before you.

Where did it all begin, My Love?

I’m still lost.

In Our Miracles


In our spirits My Love, we are the flowers, having received our gifts

surviving the sun and the rain, the roughness of brush

a few storms bending

our wills, but we live for the beauty now

and the miracles

of our colors blending.

Our Nation


Regardless of your affiliation, regardless of where you live in our world, please pray for our nation. We are at a critical point in our history.

I like what Governor John Kasich has said recently. He is a Republican that did not support Donald Trump, but he said this not a time for gloating. It’s not a time for saying, “I told you so.”

It is all very serious, and many of us are tempted to run this administration into the ground with our words. But may the facts be known, and may the correct action be taken.

Thank you for your prayers, and positive thoughts. Amen.


Note: I don’t usually post twice, this close together in the same day, but I was having difficulty with the internet today.

There is a Warm Breeze Now


There is a warm breeze now, slowly pushing its way over the lake,

holding a scent of water and trees, coming to rest

on the poet’s face. He looks up

realizing his sky is not empty, as he reaches

for the pen that’s filling itself

with words, and holding the photograph

in his mind, he begins

to write.

A Mothers Day Blessing



May all mothers be blessed today.

May God continue to bless your relationships with your children, and give you the strength to teach the good, and right things. May you always be blessings to each other.

And for all the millions of women, unable to have children and yet pray that they can someday, may you receive comfort in knowing that you are loved, and not forgotten.

And finally to all women fighting cancer or some other horrible illness, may you have the courage to remain positive. You are loved. We do hope and pray for healing.

May we always honor mothers, today and every day.
