Within a Soft Whisper


Within a soft whisper, filling us with life, with meaning

from the flow of love

making all the difference

creating a heart alive


with a powerful beauty.

As the Cool Air Lifts Our Spirits


As the concrete lets go of the heat of the day,

shade wins the battle

turning into night

as the cool air lifts our spirits

we walk under the street lights

holding hands grateful

for the spray

of the water fountains.

Shopping for Hats


I love your rosy lips, your bright smile as you try on different hats My Love,

looking in the mirror, looking to me for a sense of validation.

And if you wear this one My Love, no one will ever see me kissing

your cheek, under the brim.

Yes, you will always be beautiful

to me, with or without

your hat on.


Note: My wife wears hats all the time (except at home) because she needs to, having had cancer twice now.

Yet you will not find a more positive, beautiful person.

Two things keep us going as a couple and separately…….our faith in God…… and our love for each other.

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.
