Finding Love

May 18, 2015

I primped and perfected

or so I thought

but felt nothing.

I floated in an ocean of if only

and why not

as the waves grew higher

and brought me down.

You reached out,

you lifted me up,

you loved me.

You saw your beloved

absent of all those doubts

and insecurities.

The waters stilled

and as I looked at my reflection in them

I saw you.

Whiskers and Wonder

May 14, 2015

Glow of hope under the kitchen table,

squeaky toys on the floor.

Alarm sounds

“Mail came!”

I sit.

I rest.

You are there . . .

kisses and cuddles.

Whatever did I do without you?

LOVE THIS! Must share!

new green leaves
on trees that knew

the colors
of dramatic autumns

in silence sometimes
and in small ways

new dreams grow

This bush is beginning to flower again.  The photo was taken by Karl in May 2011.

Remembered Blessings

May 10, 2015

A wee girl in her pretty dress,

a big smile,

a handful of dandylions . . .

thoughts of you and me.


Place and time cannot take it away.
