As Night Falls on the Bay

Even the sun surrenders to the night,

as young lovers dream of colors on the water

with boats floating,

and ducks nestled into their feathers,

while frogs take over the serenade.

A clouded sky prepares

for the victory of fireflies

while the bay embraces

the reflection of our souls

and the moon glows,

in those softer lights

during times of our embracing.

A Hug is a Prayer

hugging bw

Hugging in the morning,

before we get out of bed,

a prayer,

of gratitude, for another day,

with you, a silent thank you,

for your love.

If I am home, hugging in the middle of the day,

and a back rub,

makes all the difference,

pushes back the doubt,

strengthens the faith,

makes constant the spark,

plays the music within.

Walking in the afternoon,

with hands holding,

sharing, dreaming,

breathing the same air,

increasing the nature,

growing within,

the realization of who we are,

as people.

At the dinner table,

the same hands touch,

in another prayer.

Sometimes touching is all I need,

to know the truth,

to know you care,

to know He cares.

And then at night,

in the same bed, in the silence,

holding each other,

a thousand things are said,

without words.

We have confidence,

and we both know,

that all is right with the universe.


Blessings to everyone and PEACE!

“If you love nature, you will love people.”
