Whispers

100_0947

It’s true that the legends of ghosts don’t speak to us anymore,

and saints speak too softly to be heard, while sinners

yell their own condemnation, but to be honest

My Love, I need your whispers more,

than anything else in this world.

Nose to nose, foreheads

touching.

Perhaps We Are Two Hawks

100_1324

In the hawk’s wings I realized I was a writer, perhaps just a few lines,

having been healed, having seen what love can do,

and your courage My Love, strengthened

me. Perhaps we are two hawks

lifting each other.

      

Do you know how much I love you?

“When we love people, we give them hope.”

For Men Over 50

100_0003

Yes, anyone can read this, but in particular it is for men my age, involved in a relationship.

Ok, so what – if she doesn’t look the same, as when you first met. You don’t either! Have you looked in the mirror lately??

You know she has carried you in her heart, for all these years, and you need to do the same. This is truly treasure come down from heaven, and you need to see it that way. There is nothing more valuable on this earth than the two of you!

 And turn off the game once in a while, stop watching the politicians, and look at the one who is so beautiful! She has been waiting for you, so don’t be stupid. When you invest time into your relationship, she will love you for it.

 And maybe even play some cards with her – like you did when you were younger – remember?? Just the two of you, with candlelight and some jazz music. Does the loser go first, or the winner? I just wish I could remember.

Have a great rest of the weekend!

“Nature never did betray the heart that loved her.”

William Wordsworth

At times in our lives, some of us not only feel very alone, but we know there is no one, absolutely no one, that will embrace us. And we can easily enter into despair.

But in addition to supplying food, and natural resources, nature and the beauty that it holds, will bring healing if we let it. Perhaps more importantly, nature leads us to the idea that we were made, along with everything else in nature. There is a design.

And nature can lead us to not only feeling embraced, but can show us the reality that we are embraced. And that is a very good thing indeed.

Have a great week everyone!

“When we love people, we give them hope.”

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.

A Word for Wednesday

100_0945

The word for today is “tenderness”. In this world of harsh words and violence, tenderness is not only more essential than ever, but it will help us to identify with that which is human. Yes we do need to fight in different ways, but tenderness is the expression of love, the showing someone in a tangible way, that we care.

In the course of our daily lives, may we be the opposite of harsh with those we love. And to those we don’t know, may we express who we truly are, with an attitude of love.

Peace.

At the Pond

100_1260

It amazes me how we can just sit on the bench

and speak without saying anything. Holding you

seems to have a language all its own,

listening to your breathing

watching the ducks, a couple

two, a part of the moment

as we blend into each other

breathing the universe.

Love lives here.

You Are the Poem

Oceans 2217

My Love, you know there are much better poets than I am. We all have different scars, but they always seem to have mirrors that reflect a thousand times more light, while I’m grasping at rays through tall trees, trying to find the words.

I pour out my heart, writing letters hopefully sealed with the sacred. Your soul shines from your sun eternally, and flows from your fingertips. But it’s the encouragement that builds our castle, and as you whisper more stardust over my ocean, I often think how can I put this on paper? Because you are the poem…….and always have been.

At least you know how I feel, and that’s the most important thing.

Writing About Us

Oceans 262

Our passion remains behind the veil

as it should be, I want to treat you as the royalty

you are, sent down from on high,

my Queen. So I write about us on the beach

holding hands, sitting on the porch, having dinner

and looking into those eyes, those amazing eyes.

Hold still for a second, so I can gaze into eternity

once again. I am undone.

What Women Need to Remember

Oceans 956

Be a good listener. Listening does not always mean solving or fixing the problem. If you disagree, keep listening anyway, especially if he feels strongly about the situation.

He will welcome hugs and gentle kisses anytime. 

Surprise gifts, just because you love them, will go a long way!

Spending time together doing the everyday things, will help reduce stress in everyone. (I’m adding here except for maybe laundry!)

Actions do speak louder than words. Remember to show him your love.

      

Note: This was written by my wife. Thank you My Love!
