Love’s Flow Renewed

100_1053

We rebuild each other, don’t we My Love?

Even in the worst of times

we always rediscover

each other’s flow,

as two eagles soaring

above what used to be,

but is now

renewed.

Sweet Summer Memories

100_0890

In those waves where light seems to glitter,

ride memories

of a boy on a raft,

of body surfing, and wipe outs

and dreaming

of being old enough

to drive,

a Chevy of course

old enough to take Marianne

on a date……

would she want to dance?

Suddenly a seagull woke the old man….

squawking again

for a piece of bread.

He reached into the bag

and threw some crumbs in the air…..

longing for more

of his sweet summer memories.

Our Democracy

20170503_164915

Yes, I still love my country, but I don’t believe corruption should lay hidden simply because leaders carry the name, “conservative”.

Think they’re Prolife? Nah, pro life people don’t treat migrant children that way.

He’s been a con artist since Day 1, and you’d better start caring, because we all stand to lose……our precious democracy.

The Intensity of Your Light

20170503_163308

With the intensity of your light, we enfolded into each other

sitting on the park bench.

We sat there remembering our journey

as you placed your hand in mine,

I gently caressed your face

you tucked your head into my shoulder,

whispering

your prayer for me.

Do you remember the azaleas?

Note: This is about a couple encouraging each other, through chronic illness.
