When we are talking, and I look at your hair,
the mystery deepens.
How can the world be in
a few strands, of black and grey,
with a little bit of brown?
How can one set of eyes, hold
so many answers, give so many clues,
so that the world makes sense?
how can skin be so soft,
so exhilarating, when I hold you?
Listening to you breathe,
hearing your heart,
50+ years, and still holding the fire,
still climbing mountains,
still conquering galaxies,
how do you do it?
May I always be worthy,
of your love.

How beautiful! I love this!
Thank you for your great comments! Peace to you and be blessed.
So lovely!! “still holding the fire”, love that line!
Thank you JR! Yes I love that line too. A long time ago I write a story about Native Americans, a woman had that name, “Holds the Fire”. Peace to you and great blessings.
Oh did you ever post that story? 🙂
Yes all on this site. Maybe the best way would be searching by the term First Nations. Some main characters are, Thunder Speaking, Bluebird, RedHawk. And then there is the old wise woman, a healer by the name of Cricket in the Meadow. And I made up some names of tribes so I would not offend anyone including the Ite and the Grie.
Thanks!! Sounds interesting!
I have alot of fiction here – short stories, and some were a series, including The Last People on Planet Earth, and The Escape (a romance on a sailing yacht by that name).
Will have to look them up. 🙂
There are hundreds of fiction stories here, more than 2,000 posts of various kinds.
If I count right, The Last People series was 36 segments.
