The Royalty of Purple


In the royalty of purple, in her presence really

old wounds are silenced

while memories

of scars fade away.

Healing through color

and light.

The Strength of Spirit


Some men know how to rebuke the thunder, pulling down the noise, even silencing the destruction of kings and sovereigns.

And yet they will hold you when you cry, write a poem when you’re blue, simply leaving a line or two. And some men too, know the power of flowers.

It’s Always Good to Fall in Love


In March it’s ok to let your hair get blown all over the place,

tossed by the wind

and to relish a light spring rain,

and then smile as the sun begins to appear,

gently caressing your cheek,

and it’s always good to fall in love

in March, walking together

as the tulips begin their journey of color.

Yes in March, it’s ok,

in fact it’s very good indeed.

In Our Splendor, My Love


In our splendor My Love, it’s as if we get lost

in the essence of each other,

hidden yet without hesitation

knowing, even breathing

the truth that we were made

to love, giving away

our most special gardens

and the gifts

of our hearts.
