just before the sun.

My thoughts wandered,

as they so often do,

to the anticipated drama of my day,

then . . . ‘I heard the whispered sounds of your restful slumber

and felt the warmth of your love against me.

Just as quickly as they came

my worries slipped away.

All I could see,

all I could hear,

all I could feel

was my love for you

and how very blessed I am to know

Seasons Do Change

As the choir sang

In my personal sanctuary

I heard the last bits of the rains of yesterday

Drip from the roof deck above.

Tiny bits of pollen in the air

Caused an itch

Or the occasional twitch,

But brought as well a reminder

Of the coming of spring.

It won’t be long, now.
