I Danced in Her Waves

wallpapers and images

In my wildness I danced in her waves,


in her smile, set free in her tide


again and again

she banished

any brokenness remaining.

The Quiet Moments of Winter


I sense My Love stirring, as she reaches, pulling back the curtains

of a blue dawn, where the tree branches gently hold

the overnight snow.

She watches the doves, as I notice her face

her lips move, whispering

her prayers

I drift off, pushing away the fire

for now

but later I awaken

to the smell of turkey bacon

and her kiss

on my lips.

In Our Kitchen on Christmas Eve

20171217_221340The smooth sound of Kenny G ‘s saxophone, playing Silver Bells from his Christmas CD. A timer dings. Chocolate chip muffins?? I never knew there was such a thing!

She quickly comes in wearing her green Christmas apron, and pulls another tray from the oven. “Sweetheart, don’t over do it!”, slips out of my mouth.

She draws close and snuggles into my neck. As my hands reach around her waist. I tell her honestly, “Honey if you didn’t cook anything, that would be ok.”

We embrace, and as our children turn on the Christmas lights in the dining room, I whisper into her ear, “You……are my gift…..”

From our house to yours……Happy Holidays, and Merry Christmas!

And if you don’t celebrate Christmas I wish you peace and wonderful blessings!
