Love Reflections II


People did want to stone us, do you remember North Carolina, My Love, as they picked up the rocks? The ungodly imbedded code of hating us, our two different colors. They were blind though.

But we walked through their fire, as we always did for years later, and we reached farther, taking hold of the holy bonding. In our fire we were victorious

fooling every one of them

by getting married, and staying that way. Even though they still stare at us in Pennsylvania.

The Greatest Moment of My Life


It was in the interlacing of our fingers, stepping back from the altar

as I lifted your veil, beholding your glory, your smile

we kissed, and I was lost again

having just said, “I do”

we both turned to those

that love us –

It was the greatest moment of my life,

and I will love you forever.


Happy Valentine’s Day!
