Even After All These Years

20180707_155445

I said to My Love, I don’t feel very handsome anymore,

she looked at me, smiling

with that twinkle in her eye

and said, “You’re still

the man of my dreams…..

did you know that?”

My Love.

Note: My wife and I have been married for more than 30 years now. Yay!

Summer’s Last Breath

20171028_150417

Heat still lingers in the poplar trees and maples,

summer’s last breath, refusing

to yield

and yet the cool air

begins slowly

enfolding

around us

claiming victory

once again.

Over the Oceans

100_1102

When we cast our prayers over the oceans, will the waves remember us?

And will the wind be able to cleanse us pushing through our grey

shadows in order to bring the refreshing?

hopefully our words will catch wings ascending

beyond the clouds where our voice

will be heard, and our spirits

lifted. At least

we hope so.
