Morning Doves

As I had a luncheon with a friend yesterday. I found listening as she talked, that it was true, that everyone has at least one story. Though there are a few of us who have more than our share. Different as people may seem, there is a connection to each and everyone of us. That connection is simply the emotions we experience throughout life. Of course I do believe there are people that are cold of heart, but realistically I think most of have felt, the joy of love, the pain of hell and all the emotions in between. I find I can confuse myself as I look at my own experiences in very different ways.

I thought I knew tomorrow,
what the future had in store,
from the moment I met you
I knew my heart you'd adorn.

The darkness is overwhelming,
the sun hides behind the clouds
as I dream of my forever,
the storms of life wash up
like the waves against the shore.

Two Morning doves,
caught me by surprise,
lying under the lilac
as time passes by.

They didn't move
nor did they coo,
but the closer I got,
off they flew.

Two Morning doves,
caught me by surprise,
as I watered the garden
their feathers caught my eye.

They took in different directions,
to the blue of the sky and
returned in a moment to
bed down for the night.

Two Morning doves,
caught me by surprise,
as the first thing I thought of
was you and I.

The weather was incredibly humid today but never the less I attended the farmers market. In a summer cotton floral dress, my hair brushed back and with a sense of youth at heart. It matter very little how much we made, it was important that we shared in a day with many people from various walks of life. Somehow I just know that the path we are on is some  how predetermined. You know how they say going home is always faster than getting there. Well that holds true on every trip I take, some how the road to home is always shorter. Where is home? The cowboys would say"home is where you leave your boots" and farmers " home is where you hang your hat" but I think home is love, so I would say " home is where the heart is.  That is why I think it bothered me so much when the sewage company came through the hollow as I was so attached to  the flowers and the trees and as they took a part of it way, so did they take a part of my heart.  But as I replant and grow new flowers and trees, I find that with them is planted a new set of memories.

The willow was awfully shallow
and didn't stand the test of time,
though I had hoped for more,
the embraced branches rotted
like a non cared for grapevine.

The place where it once stood .
leaves no trace or sign, all that
is left is some grass and thorn
like neglected vines.

But time is so forgiving and
this much I do know,
that the mighty oak tree,
just grows and grows.

Stars in the heavens,
shine down on me,
keeping the secrets,
of all of my dreams.

If the moon could
read the words,
written in the heart,
it would speak of
our love.

Stars in the heavens,
shine down on me,
keeping the secrets,
of all of my dreams.

I can only dream what tomorrow will bring,
season upon season the song bird still sings.
I would talk the wind to take to you,
a kiss of love as it sails the heavens blue.

I can only wish to wake up in your arms,
gaze into your eyes and feel each beat of your heart.
I would ask time to stand still as you and I
dance like the dragons flies upon the hill.

I can only want the love of you,
day after day and the whole night through.
I would take a star, sign it forever
from my heart.

Take my hand, my heart is yours,
take my dreams, my love is yours.
One million words or maybe a zillion or two,
each and every one a word written for you.
Each and every moment of the passing day,
is filled with a love that grows in a magical way.
I just want to love you
and love you I do.
You are my angel and
the sky is our blue.
I just want to wake up,
feel you next to me,
know that this is love,
as love was meant to be.
I just want to spend my
life with you , dancing
on the clouds , while
making dreams come true.

The Summer of Silence

The sun never stops shining,
even though the rain would have you believe it does.


Interpretation reveals many views,
none of them are wrong.

Life is a game of tug a war.
If I believe ....does that make it so?

I  can't remember falling asleep,
but I remember waking up.
Love is like a bouquet of flowers
it always gives you the most pleasant view.

I can see many things from one window.
It is very early in the morning and I wake up to a silence that at the moment is rather comforting. Free of the complications that the world surrounds us with. Strange as this may sound I never could unlock the doors to the many places I lived, but I could see out the window. It is as if those windows are a picture album of time past and present. My father was big on old adages, he use to say " there are two sides to every story." Somehow I find that applies to almost everything in life. We can see many things from one window. Confusing as that may sound, I stand to view the world and people from four corners. What lurks outside, lurks within.
I see the stars,
they shine so bright,
filled with hope
that rules the night.
Sometimes trains,
passing by or the
tree frogs and
black birds mime.
Judge not the moment,
of fear and despair,
for on this page a
lesson appears.
Written words
of yesterday,
are chapters of life,
in a characters play.
Unseen locks upon the gate,
the key is held by the hands of fate.
As love would have me see it,
the world like a flower garden in bloom.
The summer of silence is interrupted
by the memories that speak in riddles.

Do you know how you sometimes wake up to a particular song? This morning all I kept hearing was the lyrics to " this is dedicated to the one I love."  Pictorial Prose is just that, a dedication to love. Each morning before I wake up, until I close my eyes at night. My first instinct was that sounds pretty obsessive and yet what better thing to obsess over than love. Love by all means is a power tool in the arsenal of life. Love is forgiving, understanding and without barriers.

Dance partner, dance
around and around we go,
dance partner, dance
I love you so.

You are my good morning
and my good night,
you truly are the
love of my life.


Morning kisses
just for you,
I dedicate the
whole day through.

Like the wind that
blows through my hair,
our love is a true
breath of fresh air.


Always hungry
for time with you,
I think of all the things
that we could do.

Walking hand in hand,
not knowing what's in store
and gazing at the heavens
while begging for more.

You are the stars
that shine in the night,
I saw your warmth
in that smile so bright.

I know its all so true,
from the moment
of hello and I fell
for you.


I hold the memories
here within my heart
and page through daily
like skipping on stars.

Take my hand
and I'll tell true,
my heart has always
belonged to you.

Follow closely
and you will see,
how wonderful
our love can be.

Take my hand ,
my heart is yours
and that is how we
write forevermore.

Follow closely
heart, soul and mind
and watch as we
record our love for all

Every moment I devote to you,
a record of my love for you,
you are the sun in my morning,
the moon in my night, you are
a gift to delight.

Every day I celebrate,
in a most unusual way.
With a dance in the heavens
and a song in the breeze,
all done by memory.

There is no stopping
my daydreams of you,
twenty four hours a day
and it's all that I seem to do.

In the clouds up high,
I dance you and I,
in the grass I lay as I
dream the day away.

There is no stopping
my daydreams of you,
always sunshine and
skies of blue.

From a star lit night
when the moon takes the sky,
I spend my night dreaming
of you.

I walk along the river and
it seems I am all alone,
until I gaze unto the heavens
and with you I roam.

We take the mountains
and turn them into sand,
again we take the river
and send out our demands.

No barriers between us,
distance cannot rule,
for I keep you close to
me, we are here soul
to soul.
You unlocked the love inside of me,
embraced with happiness via a dream.
Taught me the meaning of this life
and gave to me a reason make it
through the night.

I am yours forever,
that you must know,
you took my heart
and you never let it go.

I recognized when it first came through,
the joy of love when I met you.
Wonderful and magical the first of my dreams,
when we scripted this life with sweet memories.

La la la sing with me, no words do we need,
La la la sing with me, no words do we need.

I knew from the start,
something was happening to my heart,
the power of love was found and
when anchors couldn't keep my feet on
the ground.

La la la sing with me, no words do we need,
La la la sing with me, no words do we need.

Paradise is a day with you,
no matter what we say or
what we do.

The kiss of rain,
the vibrant soul,
the sun on my face
and your loving hold.

The magic of life,
the journey untold,
the colliding of two
an action so bold.

The soft gentle breeze,
the song of the wind,
blue skies and rainbows
and distance the sin.

The beauty of dreams,
visions in my mind,
bring you close as
your heart to mine.

The dance on the clouds,
forever's embrace,
gazing into your eyes
as we stand face to face.

The love that we give,
felt with each day,
the gift of love
that found a way.

To celebrate,
rejoice from a high,
the bonding of two
just you and I.

Always here,
waiting for you,
always my love
I give to you.

John once said that in the neighborhood he lived, he was razzed for mowing his own grass and doing his own gardening. As I escaped into my own flower garden and felt the soil slip through my fingers it was evident that there is a balance necessary between man and earth. Nature when given the ultimate of respect, reveals many gifts. The opposite can also be said for it is true if we don't keep a balance and give a certain amount of respect we will see the wrath of earths fury.
For a short period of time as I weeded the garden and tended to the flowers, I felt a sense of oneness, peace and calm. We are not above her or below her , but one with Mother Earth. Watching as the roses bloom and quickly fade, I am reminded of the passing of time.

Tuesday, July 15, 2014 my heart.

My life is like a flip book,
still shots that you can see,
the movement of my heart,
when your love came to be.

Life that keeps on moving,
each page quickly reveals,
the racing of our two souls
from a book of stills.
I felt the moment,
I recognized it well,
when love suddenly appeared
and I took my first step
out of hell.

I traveled many places,
I found you next to me,
like a river finds the ocean
and a storm sends a breeze.

I can't deny what is
obviously true when my
heart morphed and I fell in
love with you.

I felt the moment,
I recognized it well,
when love suddenly appeared
and I took my first step out
of hell.
Memories can soften
the many yesterdays,
but nothing can alter
the dreams that lovers

Like rainbows in the blue sky,
like stars that rule the night,
our love is not fleeting, it is
how forever gets it right.

Whispers of angels,
songs that lovers sing,
the dance of two souls
for all eternity.

The music of the heart,
played for you and I
courted the moment
bringing you to mind.

I wrote the words,
grammar was my sin,
for everything else was love,
that came from deep within.

I knew it from the first,
it was like a magic spell,
when strangers come together
and rids our life of hell.

Surrounded by darkness,
no sunlight can I see,
for you are a distance
and love is my need.

Blankets of sorrow,
no heartache to share,
I reaching through the
darkness to bring you here.

Melancholy Moment

Hum the emotions,
let them fill the air,
the sounds of the heart,
with the silence I share.

Frightening yet comfort,
when I listen to the plea,
to hold you in my arms
rewriting eternity..


Lost in a love song,
written into a tale,
where two souls met,
under life's spell.

Lost in the dance,
entwined in your arms,
where dreams begin
and bring you from a far.

Listen to your heart
and you will hear,
the sweet song of love
that you I will share.

Like a fairytale in waiting,
a dream to come true,
this story of love is
a bit of me and you.

I saw the rainbow,
arching the sky,
like a bridge it
touched your heart
to mine.

The distance melted,
no mountains between
you and I as nothing
can separate the love
of all time.

I saw the rainbow,
arching the sky,
like a bridge it
touched your heart
to mine.

No rivers to cross
nor seas to swim,
as you are so close,
in my heart till the

I saw the rainbow,
arching the sky,
like a bridge it
touched your heart
to mine.

Skies blue,
sunshine bright,
dreams begin
and all seems
so  right.

Melting mountains,
all roads lead to you
and that is what
destiny can do.

Skies blue,
sunshine bright,
dreams begin
and all seems
so right.

I held it so tight,
in my hand a fist,
but when I opened
it up, I sent to you
a kiss.

Like angels in flight
or a dove yonder high,
my love I send to you,
time after time.

I saw a glimpse of sorrow,
I wrote the page on despair,
I felt the joy of the moment,
when you made it all disappear.

I felt the sadness from within,
I learned what heartache meant,
by replacing it with your love,
the love I hold to this day.
The words are few,
the combinations are many,
to express my love
for eternity times twenty.

I write upon the paper,
I scribble in the blue,
the words of love ,
the words I write for you.

The world reveals hell,
day after day, but your
love reveals the heavens
in the most amazing way.

Happiness rules the moment,
peace and contentment is on
our side, from the moment
you took my hand and pulled
me to your side.

The words of my heart,
the song of my soul
on a never ending journey,
that continuously unfolds.

From high above the mountains,
below the ocean deep,
it matters little where we travel,
as you are always here with me.

I took your love,
I placed it in my heart
and it has been there
from the very start.

It brightens my day,
gives meaning to this life
and shares in the smiles
that cast the love of light.

I took your love,
I placed it in my heart
and it has been there
from the very start.

If I whisper,
I'll whisper to you,
words of love in
skies of blue,

If I sing,
I'll sing out loud,
so all will hear
the sound of love.

If I shout,
I will shout from high,
to cross the distance
and bring you to my side.

If I speak.
I'll speak in rhyme,
I will speak of the love
of you and I..

The Love Of My Life

Inside out and you will  pleasantly see,
that you are deep within the heart of me.
You are a part of me and that is how it was
meant to be, inside out and you will see.

Always and forever we rule the time,
that is truly how I feel in this rhyme.
Nothing can change, even if it seem
a little insane, inside out and you will

Entwined like a ribbon in a bow,
my heart to yours will never let go.
Embraced for all time, you are
more than just a rhyme, inside out
and you will see.
There are those that believe we are sent to earth on a predetermined journey and no matter the time span, we are to fulfill our destiny. Whether it is filled with heart ache or happiness or both, that what we believe behind aids those who have to yet to journey the earth. In many ways I believe life is a lesson and that just maybe our souls have met in another dimension.

trust and
happiness true.

Words reflect
my love for

You are the sun in my morning,
the stars in my night, you are the love of my life.

trust and
happiness true.

Words reflect
my love for you.

You are the sun in my morning,
the stars in my night, you are the love of my life.

Script of Life

The cooler mornings remind me much of the fall season. I found myself reluctant to wake up and get on with my work, despite all my obligations to do so. My thoughts are rather scrambled as I try to put them behind start on my day.
Pictorial Prose is truly about the images and words that come together through the window of love. In many ways it started with the freedom that writing so grants us. As I look back over the years I can see loving life and being loved really are quite different. For some reason those flip cartoon strip books we had as kids comes to mind. You know the ones where you flip the pages and the comic strip moves as if it was a real time movie. As I flip through my pages of life I can see that it also moves quickly presenting us with images that time rules.
Pictorial prose love of the world around us or denial of the negative that surrounds us?

I met with the morning,
the sun shining bright,
the skies so blue and
not a cloud in sight.

The silence ruled,
the dogs are asleep,
the rooster ailing,
I heard not a peep.

My pillow the comfort,
my warm blankets near,
as I lay here dreaming
and wishing you here.

My emotions mixed,
there is so much to feel,
sorrow and happiness
to a hear that can't heal.

Questions remain,
more than a few as I
wait on the answers
under the blue.

I only follow
the script of life,
I tried to rewrite,
it wasn't quite right.

The journey unfolds, l
like ribbon that unspools,
leading me down the
 path to you.

I only know what is
deep in my heart,
it has been there from
the very start.

From the day you
said hello and my
love for you began
to grow and grow.

I can't stop what I see,
you are the love in my everything.
The daisy on the side of the road,
the rivers that to you flow.


I don't like the silence, that is when my mind plays games with me, reviewing all the conversations shared and again rolling through the dreams.  I tried to put them behind me not to give them time, but as long as I am still living you will always be on my mind. You are the sunshine in the morning, that warms this heart of mine, gives this life some hope and reasoning, like a majestic fine. My heart is troubled at all that comes my way, there are so much to do and so much more to say.
I document the moments so that all will know how wonderful love as it gives to life a certain glow. The mountains and the rivers, all the seasons of life are just a reflection of your love in my life. The rain that falls, the sun that shines, spring through winter, you will always be mine.
