Exactly at Midnight

...with your eyes tightly closed and your arms open, we will welcome the new year embraced as one. Happy New Year!
Distance foolishly made a play
to come between us this winter day,
my body knows of empty arms,
and the mountain of trees that act as bars.

Weep not of heartache nor despair
my heart knows that you are here,
in the winds that kiss my cheek
and in each snowflake your love is seen.

Empty of vision and silent of sound
till the rhythimic beat of love was found,
dancing joyoulsy above the clouds,
only bonded souls allowed.

...Hold on!

The moment is approaching where today is gone and another year is behind us and our life another song. Unwritten words in waiting and a sequel to be found, when our love responds with emotion, we can do no wrong.

Closing in on each moment, so richly a find, to feel your lips pressing gingerly next to mine. Soul to soul embrace and a smile on my face, as I capture the visions of love taking place.

The moment is approaching where today is gone and another year is behind us and our life another song. Unwritten words in waiting and a sequel to be found, when our love responds with emotion, we can do no wrong.

Dreams under starlight and the observation clear, love functions perfectly when our hearts align with care. Side by side our souls unite and nothing shall divide, as the bond was interlocked tight from the moment you made my heart sigh.

From a Blade of Grass a Song!

Incredible the emotions,
wonderful the day,
you walked in on my heart
and made the darkness fade.

From a blade of grass a song
of happiness and glee, to the
music of life, which brought
your love to me.

Simple my intentions a rise
to mountain high and release
the words of love unto the
blue of the sky.

Breathtaking the reminder
as seen in the morning dew,
in the flow of the river, in
the reflection of the blue.

The warmth embracing,
magical through and through,
to allow my heart to feel
your love in everything
I do.


My intended audience is the restless soul
which anxiously awaits my...

Happy New Years!

I woke to the thrashing about of broken branches hitting up against the windows. The hollow rarely fell prey to the hungry winds, as the tall stately trees which carefully lined the hills created a barricade which usually kept the arrogance of the high winds from playing havoc in the hollow. Powerful and a bit mischievous the approaching winter storm no longer danced on tree tops but dipped deep down to master the moment. Placing a familiar white dusting over the valleys and snapping the tallest and strongest of trees the wind again turned the page from comfort to remind us of our vulnerability to the storms of life.
Our habit of recording the moments and documenting the days happenings brings with it a beginning to an end. The last day of a year and the entering in of a new one proves that time indeed stands still for no one. The lessons of life gone unchallenged tease us with our own ignorance, for we cannot possess, nor control the moment. To master time one was must realize that each breathing moment is an experience filled with a variety of choices.
I glanced out the window and watched the dark sky as it was being replaced by an unseen sunlight. The sun's rays battling to pierce through the thick dark clouds of the mornings winter storm reminded me of your love which finds away each day to shine from the heart to brighten my spirit.

Allow no fear to enter in,
your warmth is all I need.

I feel it every morning
and it makes my soul sing.

...and love spoke

Sky Blue on A Winter Day

Living in a high volume technological world adds a thread of vulnerability to our way of life. Interactively connected, world to world, that which unites quickly divides. Each hour our electrical power had been disrupted proved only of our greater dependence upon means from which we have little control. I rolled through the many emotions first of maintaining a safe quarters to coming to terms with the isolation that quickly surrounds you. The first day came with a set of withdrawal symptoms as if our worlds truly had been divided.
The following day I felt numb, not from the loss of power to the every day chores of life, what I was experiencing was more than a mere infraction upon my lifestyle, it was withdrawal from the explosion of this newly created world. The interference with our world to world bond only proved how powerful the outside connection which tightened the grip upon our lives had become. The utility companies quickly arrived and examined the situation as they proceeded to bring some order to the last few days. It was at this time I escaped into my bedroom as I began to read I fell into a sense of clam as I reviewed the magic of our love which no power, technological or otherwise could divide. Pen in hand the ink flowed across the paper. The words were a blend of emotion from the battle to retain to a cuddling warmth of succession. Not sure if it was merely memories that bridged the moment or the energy of the soul which spanned all time and place. All I was sure of was as the words appeared the reality of what is took its rightful place in my heart to whisper of love.

Fate took a mountain and sailed it out at sea,
as the whispers of memory sent your love to me.
Powerful such energy to ignite our love and as quick as flashing lights unseen barriers tighten like a glove.
The bond of love strengthened as it weaved
the golden sun lit color and the blue of the sea.
Winter approached with fury and a game of misery to play, but it didn't count on love to repave the way. Sings > Whispers of memory, whispers of love, calmed my soul and sent your dreams to hug. La la la la, la la la la you stayed with me and we caught winter by surprise and turned it into spring as we watched the sun rise. la la la la , la la la la We caught winter by surpise and turned it into spring as we watched the sunrise.

... a lost moment

Half a soul,
one side of a dream,
divided memories.

.. and than I opened my eyes.

The goblets are empty but anticipation appeared,
I prepared the dinner as If you were here.

My mind raced from the mountains to the sea,
imagined us in the snow and down by the beach.

I feared the moment would come to a stop and
I would open up my eyes and the dreams would


With you there is such acceptance,
without you the heartache pierces
my soul to cause excruciating pain.
I value the memory ... embrace the moment.

and a long day it is.

From setting the table to the lights on the tree,
my mind was consumed by your sweet memory.
...holds eyes closed long enough to sense the warmth of your embrace.

Have a Merry Christmas!

One of my favorite things to do at the holidays is listen to the music. I think it matters very little where you have been or where you are going or your beliefs, the message conveyed is one of warmth and love. All caught up with my seasonal preparations ,I sat back a little to relax as the candle light danced shadows on the wall and the music performed its magic as it created a quaint little ambiance. I sat back looked at my Christmas tree and my mind began to wonder. I had this little elf ornament since I was eight years old, It had been misplaced over the last few years and I just found it in the corner of the attic. To most it would be just a dusty old ornament, ah but I saw so much in this ornament,not only was it filled with a flood of memories, it reminded me of the strength it takes to overcome all obstacles. I can remember being that little girl just like yesterday, I think it's because she comes out of hiding every now and then.

Holds your hand,
gives you a kiss and
wishes you a Merry Christmas!

It's sweet memories which use the power of dreams,
to dance of love in the heavens above.

I am always here with you from morning to the
midnight blue, to share my love of with you.

Like lovers do

The tree lights are lit, the candles all a glow and
here I sit as memories begin to flow.

Holding on to you,like lovers do, a kiss so sweet,
would bring me to my knees.

La la la I sing for you, la la la a song of two.
La la la I sing for you, la la la a song of two.

I question not the moment, I said hello to you,
the warmth conveyed was written in the blue.

My heart quivered, my soul like a quake, and
I shook darling from the very first take.
You touched my heart and ...

Le Fleur

Monopolizing all my dreams, captivating indeed
and as I opened up my eyes I reviewed from memory.

The flower blooms despite the seasons wintry mix,
separate we are but one floret, together a bouquet
and through the sharing of a moment time depicts
how love shall be displayed.

Embrace the moment,
sing with me of love,
as we dance upon the
clouds, choreographed
from heaven above.

I dream of your smile
and the magic of your
ways, woven like silk,
your love never fades.
Strip the darkness of its ways,
remove all earthly fear,
for today was cast in resin
to retain all the years.
What game is this my mind doth play?it beckons to the heart, to reach into the shadows and embrace visions which light up in the dark. . My soul anxious and hungry begs to feel you here, as it dances through the winds like a maiden in the air.
I need you!!!!!!!

The seasons of change

The seasons reflect on the moment of change,
from sun lit summers, to autumns shades,
a winter dusting, till spring reclaims.
In every moment of everyday, we traveled far,
we found our way and hand in hand we erased
all gray.
The sky took on many a hue but it never
morphed from the sky of blue.
How grateful, how happy, how filled with joy,
those barriers small, sent just to toy.
I allowed sorrow to open the gates,
until your love flooded through to
erase the ache.
Each day is labeled with laughter and
joy and the warmth of love which
embraces the miles.
Today is special , there is something new,
each day is shared under skies of blue.
Rejoice! the sun still shines in the dark of the night.
I looked at my wants, my needs and desire and
than closed my eyes to create the hour.
I cannot give to you which is already yours...
The darkness enticing, the stars so ever close and I knew at that very moment, we were on the road the Lord had chose. He sent out a few roadblocks, a detour or two and than he stretched it through the years under shades of many a hue, only that I may recognize the color of love when I met up with you.

Branding Love

...as the flames stretched and the fire grew the blaze kissed the heart and seared the soul.

Snow Crystals

If closing my eyes but once brings you as close as the images of the mind, may closing my eyes a second time place you in my arms.

Pure Pleasure

Your love is the river that floods my heart
as it overflows to seep with pure pleasure
deep down into my soul.

I say not not a river wild and without aim,
it is the rays of the sun whose warmth I claim,
to warm the heart on the coldest of days.

...don't let go!

Good Nite!

I looked at the date and again at the time, it all passed so quickly, it boggled my mind. It was yesterday's memories, tomorrow's desire, which toyed with the moment creating a fire. Titillating, tempting, hot and empowered, surrounded by mountains, divided by hours.
When the curtains are drawn and the truth appears,
no doubt whose arms are holding me here.
Winter made and early visit, snow crystals were all that could be found. Until I gazed into the heavens and your love came falling down.
my love,
my friend,
my day
and my dreams.
Spoken by the heart, written by the soul,
one moment, one lifetime in eternity's fold.
Rain to snowflakes, river to sea,
sorrow to love, reality to a dream.
I raced to my pillow to close my eyes and dream
of your embrace both spirit and mind.
There are no tears between us... only love.


I am one of those kind of people who rarely watch anything but can watch the same movie several times. This one in particular is kind of disturbing, I think that's because it doesn't' have the typical happily ever after ending, at least for one of the characters in the movie. I have imagined the rewriting of the script and how I would have liked to see it end. I am not sure why I periodically feel the need to view a movie that irritates me so. I watched it for the umpteenth time on the computer today. In a kind of tongue and cheek way the movie is a reminder that life doesn't always turn out the way we think it should nor the way we want it to. All to consumed the movie can make one laugh, cry or think and touch on the many emotions we rarely care to acknowledge. Sometimes it is just a matter of comparison to a situation in my own life, ah the clicking on of the little buttons in the mind that cause you to think.
Reviewing my own situation and wondering what part I have to play in it all. Lack of decision making, denial, refusal to stand up for myself or all of the above. I had read this book on saying no," How to say NO!" I must admit that I have found it difficult to express myself in certain situations. Several reasons surface, one that I prefer not to cause issues and two I don't want to always come across as the bad guy. I feel torn and troubled and most of all I feel like I lack the control over my own life. Sometimes there is just no easy way to deal with things. Why is it so difficult to put self first in importance. I think the words, but before they make it to my lips, I talk myself out of speaking.
I have always believed that life is some how predetermined and that we are to sent to experience to learn and educate those who will follow after us. Yet sometimes I feel not prepared for that which is thrust upon me. I pray for strength and guidance to lead me forward.
As familiar as the path I am traveling appears it also is lavished with a quality of unfamiliarity. Like somehow I am lost on a long detour, hold my hand and help me find the way.

Powerful the Moment

The sun hiding coyly behind the darkened clouds, still shines brightly like the fire of your love. I could feel it in the morning, it embraces through the day and when the night falls it's there where my body lay.

Powerful the moment as it devours all the memories and than sets them above the mountains to compliment my every dream. There I hold you tightly and whisper the many words of love and feel your embrace from the earth to the clouds above.

Here we never stumble, we know just know what to do, every dance step perfect and each song for me and you. The melody inviting and the words of desire, create the moment that speeds away the hours.

Each journey has a twist and a few uncertain turns, but it always leads to the same place deep where our love burns.Love is here to guide us, to hold us by the hand and take our souls to a place where dreams command.

Merry Christmas!

The season of celebration is upon us and though I personally believe each day to be a celebration with life. The holiday season sheds a light of hope and faith to guide us. The world surfaces with many troubles and if nothing I hope that people realize the great sacrifice that comes with setting ourselves apart. There are many whose interpretation of history and religion misguide them down darkened paths. The lessons to be learned from our beliefs are meant for us to share in our strengths and help those who find themselves in a moment of weakness. May you find the spirit of the holiday season and allow it to guide you and strengthen you, as you celebrate in the joy of life.

... this moment is yours.

It's conclusive science has spent millions in research to declare that happiness is contagious. I could have saved them a few million. There is something magical in sharing in the warmth of love, the creation of memories, the dance upon the clouds, catching snow flakes with the tongue, ah happiness. I found that happiness sometimes has you hungering for more. I am not sure what it was in the day, maybe a combination of events which touched on the many emotions. More makes it hard to settle for less. I believe today I was caught up in the middle of desire, I just didn't want to think the moment, I wanted to feel the moment. Place your arms tenderly around me and pull me close this moment is yours... I love you, thank you for sharing your happiness.


You've got to give a little, take a little and let your poor heart break a little, that's the story of that's the glory of love... you've got to laugh a little... I Love you so much!!!!!!!!!!!

...and they call it love

The silhouette cast upon the midnight sky,
brought to life an image from when our souls
first entwined.

The vision was miraculous and wonderous
indeed and it flowed like water from the
river meeting with the sea.

Sensual the moment, harp like the sound
which invited the angels of heaven to
embrace our love from high up in
the clouds.

We laughed and we giggled and we
danced till the sun came round and
in the morning horizon a glimpse of
love could still be found.

Reflected in the sunlight, spiraling
from heaven down, once where
two souls danced, a meld into
one now found.

Powerful the moment, magnificent
the love, which danced in the heavens
and now dances on the ground.

Bobby Vinton - Every Day of My Life (1972)

Every day of my life, I'll need you close to me and If I had my way, that is where you'll always be.

When the wind...

When the wind brushed up against my soul and your love suddenly took a hold. Something happened from deep inside. My heart began to beat erratically, my soul to dance ecstatically at just the thought of you. Day by day the joy overflowed, you touched my spirit and you wouldn't let it go. When the wind brushed up against my soul and your love suddenly took a hold, that when I knew I fell for you...

I Beseech Thee

I beseech thee, to my heart command
and direct this restlness of souls and
embrace across the lands.

Heavenly bestowed is this wonderous
gift of love, it stood beside me in darkness
and again in sun lit clouds above.

Gaiety the spirit filled with peace and
calm and the mere thought of your
embrace from the only true love.

...the inner soul

The snow crystals were iridescent,
they sparkled like flames of light.

Blanketing the valley and hills in
a scenery of winter bright.

Chills shook my spirit and
sent my soul to soar.

High above the tree tops,
where dreams of love are born.

Reality is the outer exposure
of the visions of the inner soul.

and as they blanket the hills and dales
they create

Come fly with me!

Snow crystals,
rainbow missiles,
blue birds flying high.

a dance with you.

Songs sung,
rhythmic hum,
a melody of love.

Gray skies,
mountains high,
and still I see the sun shine.

Feathered plumes,
full moons,
tickle the spirit.


There is no end to the magic,
sparkling like fireflies throughout the trees.

A miracle was created,
the moment you said hello to me.

You are the blue sky of the heavens,
the love which reaches out to me.

I am the soul of the sun lit morning,
begging for you to hold me.

The wind has no meaning,
the star lits skies have no place.

The day would be empty,
without the warmth of your embrace.
Come fly with me!

Allow your heart to feel the tenderness of love,
allow your soul to soar in the clouds up above.

We''ll travel to every corner of the earth and
when our journey is over a new day we will birth.

Come fly with me and let your spirit free, to live
and love in happiness the way God meant it to be.

Sings of my love for you... I don't need a mountain

I don’t need a mountain to reach the sky of blue,
I’ve danced in the heavens all night with you.

I don’t need a ship to sail out to sea, you can
feel my love in any gentle breeze.

I don’t need the words to tell you how much I care,
the song of love sweetly fills the air.

I don’t need a rainbow to bridge the day, as
your hand in mine warmly leads the way.

I'll meet ya on the clouds...

I'll meet ya on the clouds and I'll tell ya all about it. How the sky became the bluest of blue and how a river long flows with all my love for you.

I'll meet ya on the clouds and I'll tell ya all about it. So much has happened, I've got so much to say, that I couldn't wait one more moment for your arms to hold me tight from night until day.

I'll meet ya on the clouds and I'll tell ya all about it. The light filled streets of Christmas, the warmth with in my heart, the joy of a shared moment with gives to life a spark.

I'll meet ya on the clouds and I'll tell ya all about it. I'll allow my heart to whisper, my soul to sing a song and with your embrace we'll dance the whole night long.

... and the sun took its place in the sky.

I lay awake in the early morn, before the sun had risen in the hollow. The darkness consuming and my mind a tease to the spirit. The moment was a mixture of reality, desire and expectation, each pulling in a different direction. Desperately grasping to pull it all together or to let it all go, not sure exactly which would enlighten the moment with a sense of peace. Breaking away from the moment, I went about with my usual morning ritual. I thought of the many people who had come into my life and what it was they actually gifted upon the day. Why is it that sorrow still was able to surface in an otherwise normal day? Ahhh, I thought to myself this is " expectation" , expectation always leads to a certain amount of disappointment. I thought about my daughter and the time we spent together. I found she shared in some of my own weaknesses. I was telling her to be strong, when I myself felt insecurities of various forms surface.
I am not sure if over the years I was so intrigued by what various readers pull out of my blog archives, as I was amazed at my own balance and insight of a past moment. Focusing on a post a year ago, I saw a depth of emotion that heightened by awareness of today with a reminders of both the past and the present. Somehow expectation was dusted aside as reality of true love surrendered and my heart again welcomed the experience.

"You cannot control, possess, destroy, fill with hate, touch on revenge or obsess on love, for love is.. all that is . The beauty that surrounds you, the sun that has yet to rise and the wind that embraces all of winter with its deep chill. It is the laughter that seeps from the soul, and the flame that burns from the deepest part of your heart. It shares in the warmth and cradles like a baby the mystery of life. Love is free to soar the heavens and walk the earth, it touches deeper then human flesh, for love in its true form is as endless as time and space. "

I reread my past thoughts and I knew no matter what situation I was caught up in, that love had surfaced and held my hand ,embraced my heart and soared with my soul. I closed my eyes in only that I may come to terms with reality and dance with my desire upon the stage of life.

When I said friends forever
it doesn’t mean till we disagree.

When I said I love you, it wasn't
for the moment in time.

When I laugh it’s not because I’m laughing
at you but celebrating the joy of life with you.

When we bonded, it’s was not because I chose to
, but because a higher power made it so.

When I dance in the clouds, it’s not a gesture
of fantasy,but a glimpse at reality.

This is Forever’s Embrace

Good Night!

I felt a tug at my spirit, questioning all I say and do. On one side there is darkness and on the other side you. The warmth of a summer sun, a snowflake in many shades and hues, crystals and beams of light, reflect all of my love for you.


Circumstance, a path of cobblestone lay,to guide without regard of what the heart has to say. A detour created to where time makes a play, as it distances ours souls for another day.


...for the rest of my life.
