Words

These feels I haven’t felt in a very long time
reignited when my eyes looked upon
each word you said, anticipating
what would be ahead.

Hoping I’d be right.

Excited when my thoughts matched yours — as soulmates do.
Flipping the page, as if I were writing this book with you.

I’m still in awe that ink on paper and words arranged like mist and vapor
can transport one’s imagination and trigger feelings without hesitation.

There are no bounds; to read and to write.
Just feelings of the heart that do ignite.

Summer Rain

red clay and gravel roads
divots forming as the rain pelts
out of breath, running away
my heart aching as the pain melts

never did I think I’d find you
just to lose you all over again,
but here I am standing broken
looking down, I’ve lost my friend

life is short, and we both knew this
still we promised that we’d do this
so here I dance in the summer rain
when I close my eyes, you’re doing the same

Nature’s Language

The snow-laden path crunches beneath my feet;
the frosty air turns my nose red and runny;
the twinkling of stars in the distance catches my eye
as I see my breath expand before me.

Nature’s beauty and power all around
speaking a language only my heart understands.
It tells me I’m not alone for God is here with me.

Take Note

It can cut like a knife
or heal a thousand wounds;
its power is immeasurable.

It can be salty and crude
or sweet like fresh honey;
its potency is irrefutable.

It can be short and quick
or long and drawn out;
its timing is impeccable.

So learn to listen and be slow to speak
for what leaves the tongue is irreversible.

Clean Slate

Sometimes, to start over, you must throw out
all that you clung to, all that was holding you back.

Start fresh with a clean slate.
Breathe easy; it’s never too late.

Hope encourages.
Faith perseveres.
Love wins.

Go now, do and be.

*** HAPPY 2022 ***

This Holiday Scene

Diamonds dancing across the ground
reflecting the starlit sky.
A winter chill in the air
as strangers pass on by.

I’m sitting on a wooden bench
enjoying this holiday scene.
Taking it all in;
the beauty is serene.

The smell of sappy firs,
carols echoing nearby,
cherished memories in my heart,
a teardrop in my eye.

The Power of Words (an acrostic)

The words we speak
Here, now and always
Emote out.

Powerful and
Overwhelming.
Waves of
Energetic frequencies.
Renewing each step as life or death.

Opportunities before us;
For our attainment.

What will we do with this power?
Observe and
Realize this
Dramatic potential to create.
So speak out that which is good.

Five minutes

I went away
from the busyness
for just five minutes.

The ocean waves cresting.
The seagulls circling.
The cool breeze blowing.

As I walked the shore.

The sun setting a brilliant cast of colors.
The cool sand sticking to my ankles.
The salted water lapping at my toes.

My alarm rang, and I’m back.

Feeling rejuvenated and grateful
that in just five minutes I can reset,
no matter where I am.

Lessons

Regret not,
for all has made me who I am —

the good,
the ugly,
the bad,
the sad.

Learning lessons
as I live my life.

Wisdom noted.

Foggy Mourn

The fog sitting stale over the rolling hills
after a treacherous rain
mirrors my bleak and muted heart,
still in disbelief that you were taken away.

But hope, buried deep,
knows in time the fog will rise and dissipate.
A day of sunlight will shine once more
though now I sit in my foggy mourn.

My faith clings to God’s promise,
that in due time, hope will resurrect
my heart of sorrow into life once again.
