Memories of Spring


Our memories of spring My Love, will see us through

even these cold rains.

The light in your eyes draws me closer,

remember the cherry blossums?

I love the sunlight in your hair,

the smell of you

the sweetness of lavender……

and to be honest

even after all these years,

I’m still stunned by you…..

I can’t help but to kiss your face

while having visions

of flowers,

coming alive again….

Note: My wife and I have been married a very long time. Part of our success is knowing, the importance of romance.

The Earth Will Remember Us


And the earth will remember us long after our footprints

have faded, and our world is no more –

paradise lost forever.


But in that day, the bees will dance in the forests

and stallions and mares

will run free.


And the grass will grow tall again,

as the cement begins to crumble.

Peace and blessings to everyone.

The Underground Spring

Mountains and Rivers 401

My heart was the hardened earth,

a soul filled with rocks, dry sand,

but you saw something,

under the surface, and started digging,

you told me I had gold,

but I didn’t believe you,

until I trusted, until you showed me,

the water, flowing from your heart,

and I could sing.

My sand turned,

into healthy soil,

rocks made smooth,

receiving the water, and the sun,

born again,

green began to grow,

and I was alive,

and understanding,

the Creator.

Do you know how much that means?

Forever flourishing,

from the underground spring,

and loving you, for always.

Blessings to everyone and peace!

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