Apples in the Orchard

20150926_143911

My Love, the apples are almost ripe now, and you and I can reach again

pulling down the choicest ones, as I watch your face – framed

by the leaves, softly moving in the wind.

      

With the smell of the trees filling us, I move closer

seeing you turn to me, your smile

as my lips gently land

on your cheek.

        

As you whisper to me, “Sweetheart…..”

In This Age

from forbes

In ancient cities with turquois embedded

I knew you, could sense your spirit

as I walked down the cobbled stones.

Swans offered their necks gracefully

but I only had eyes for you,

your breath delivered

me from a life

of despair.

        

And when we came to the altar

in this age, having known

the journey, there was no question

we were right for each other.

Joining hands

there was a wedding

with diamonds

and rubies

declaring our glory.

Memories

Oceans 993

In the recesses, in the farthest corners

there are memories of you, of us

the places we’ve been

walking with flowers

the quiet moments,

candlelight dinners,

holding your hand.

But most importantly

I remember the one day,

your hands were in mine

I slipped the ring on your finger

swearing my allegiance,

like a knight to his queen, but even more.

I’m not perfect, but I will always

remember the wonderful gift

of who you are

of who we are,

so that I can be

the man you deserve.

Time Together

Mountains and Rivers 054

If I did not have you to hold at midnight, our arms

around each other, I would not care about 2016,

it would just be another calendar, but with you

life is always new, like champagne tickling our noses

stars aligned and gaining strength

from looking into each other’s eyes

embracing the universe. Now

we have even more time

together.

Happy New Year, My Love.

Astounded

Oceans 2187

I am always astounded

when you rub your fingers through my hair

when you whisper in my ear, how much you love me

when our foreheads meet and our lips search,

until finding their target

I am forever changed, always amazed

constantly in awe

of your love for me.

She Came Down from the Sky

Mountains and Rivers 383

The Creator sent him love,

she came down from the sky,

stepped into his heart,

never truly understanding,

how great she was,

what much she meant to him.

A white dress,

a ring, and a promise,

more important to him,

than breathing,

the waves made sense now,

the woods spoke healing,

the leaves breathing peace,

all because of her light,

reflecting the sun,

when she came down,

from the sky.

Holding

Maine and More 132

Holding you is so powerful,

holding each other, even more so,

it chases your fears away,

and gives me strength,

as I listen to you breathe,

our hearts beating together,

encouraging both of us,

sealing our hope.

Do you remember the first time,

we embraced?
