Once We’re in Love

20180707_162411

Once we’re in love it all makes sense again, doesn’t it?

Our questions light up with answers,

our oceans seek infinity,

and even mud changes

into the soil of the earth,

while storms clouds

are rolled away….

all simply from a smile

from the one

we love.

A Love Story

20190507_122109

She never trusted in the dark side so she took my hand instead,

I wasn’t exactly a knight, but she saw something within me she could believe in,

and she wasn’t exactly all flowers, but her heart carried a priestess within, filled with light,

I recognized some of her scars, and I knew her beginning was a hail storm,

we both knew, and became synced when I tried to capture her flag….she took mine instead,

before I even knew what had happened,

and we never quite reached the height of eagles, we were more like hawks,

but at least we were not crows, all noise and no substance,

we live with grey feathers now, carrying courage, healing each other, and……very much in love.

The Enfolding

20180930_124305

His faith told him, actually his love told him too,

to stretch out his wings

and draw her in,

but she was already a warrior

so sensing his spirit she stretched out her wings

and they enfolded one another.

Holding on this way,

gave them both

courage and strength.

       

Note: As a couple we find that we are holding each other more now. My wife has started treatments for cancer again.

I only mention it because some of you ask about her. Right now the tough part….is emotional.

Wishing you peace.

Finding Each Other

20190507_122047

I learned how to turn and shape my discovery,

my emblazoned star

into a more pliable romance,

so she would notice me,

and we could both walk out of this mess together,

seeking wholeness. We did find

the right shoes though,

used, but in remarkable condition.

And she spun, twirled

in her cotton skirt,

with the sun in her hair

the scent of lavender

defending us,

and that’s how it all began really,

our journey together.

     

Note: Sometimes we find ourselves by finding each other.

On Our First Date

20190507_121840

She was so nervous, talking alot in the car,

at the Chinese place reaching

for my hand.

Later she said she knew

I was the one…….

but she had trouble with trusting.

I could see the gold

running through her veins,

and I knew whenever we did

eventually make love

I would need to protect

her heart, her fragile flower,

so I silently committed

my life to her.

We’ve been together ever since….

I still buy her flowers by the way,

and she really likes fresh breath…..

so I brush my teeth alot,

to this very day.
