The Song of Love

Embrace of hearts led us to the embrace of souls.

One cannot measure the power of love,
it is as boundless as it timeless.
Sadness enters the picture when we
demand more than the journey provides.
Shared Energy...the power of the positive to enhance a moment in time.
 You have to first hear the song of love,
 the dance steps are the easy part.

I am sending you a dream,
the whisper in the night,
to warm your heart
and to hold you tight.
The stars to blanket and
the moon to stand guard,
as my kisses ascend to
you from afar.

Worlds apart and as close as can be, you are in my heart, where you were always meant to be. You gave to life a meaning, you may my skies so blue and every day without you is what hell can do.                                                        
                                                               It doesn't seem possible,
                                                               I wanted to know how,
                                                               to bring our worlds together
                                                               and replace the frown with a smile.

                                                               I wondered what you were doing
                                                               and if I cross your mind or
                                                               does the darkness make barriers
                                                               that always surround?


I reached into the darkness,
I tried to pull you near,
whispered words of love
meant only for your ears.

Something was happening,
I'll try to explain,
my heart trembled at
the mention of your name.

I reached into the darkness,
I tried to pull you near,
whispered words of love
meant only for your ears.


The summer storm had spoken,
thunder, lightening and rain,
lighting up the darkness,
the evening seemed insane.

My heart ached like never before,
wandering what tomorrow has in store.
Will there be days of loneliness and despair
or will we embrace what distance refuses
us to share.

The images are haunting ,
troubling to the mind,
they bring you so close and
they disappear with time.

Weep not angels,
there is nothing you can do,
fate holds the key and
time places the lock upon the blue.

Sorrow has spoken,
it knows our story well,
a tale of love in a spider
well like spell.

Surrounded by darkness,
I close my eyes to see and
again your love is what I
feel embracing me.

I heard the angels singing
or was it the bird in the tree,
the song of love filled the
air like a warmer summer

I knew from the first,
my heart belonged to you,
falling in love was all
that I could do.

I heard the angels singing
or was it the bird in the tree,
the song of love filled the
air like a warmer summer

I heard the birds singing,
the song of my heart,
I recognized the words
and the story they tells.

I danced in a dream,
loved in every scene,
felt the joy that only
loving you can bring.

I heard the birds singing,
the song of my heart,
I recognized the words
and the story they tell.

The words written for you and I,
scripted like the stars that shine high.
Forever is meaningless without you
by my side.

I heard the birds singing,
the song of my heart,
I recognized the words
and the story they tell.

I am in love with you,
I can't hide the truth.
You are the best part of me,
my good morning, my good day
and my night through.

I heard the birds singing,
the song of my heart,
I recognized the words
and the story they tell.


The memories never fade,
they just become more intensified.
All things pass with time,
except for love, true love extends beyond earths perimeters.

La, la, la with me...

The night was near perfect
and the temperature just right,
as I took a dip in the pool and
gazed at the stars twinkling bright.

I knew that if you were looking,
the stars that you would see,
were exactly the same as the
ones shining down on me.

Though distance parts the body,
nothing can separate our souls
as we embrace the moment
and a true loving hold.

I always feel your sweet love,
it is with me day after day, as
I hold it tender in my heart
and that is where it will stay.

The night was eerie quiet,
no tree frogs in symphony
and yet your voice could
be heard to comfort me.

`The song of yesterday,
the memories we made,
like a dream in the heavens
that bring your love my way.

Here in the hollow,
with great delight,
I dream of the moment
where you hold me tight.

The dance in the heavens,
to set sail at sea , if only
to bring your love  here
to me.

I close my eyes and
here is what I see,
we are dancing so
very eloquently .

Heart to heart,
your soul with mine,
the dance of lovers
passionately entwined.


I smiled at the memories,
no tears were insight,
like stars in the heavens,
our love shines so bright.


Don't forget to sing,
la la la with me,
let your heart
la, la, la my dream.

Don't forget to dance,
da, da,da with me,
let your feet
da, da da, each step
from memory.

Take the moment
and hold it still,
feel my arms around
you, it doesn't take

Don't forget to sing,
la, la, la with me,
let your heart
la, la, la my dream.

Don't forget to dance,
da, da, da with me,
let your feet
da, da , da from

Betting on the Angels

Chasing the blooms of a flower
   is like racing against the seasons.
That which gives us pleasure
reveals the depth of emotion.
When silence rules the night,
and darkness is everywhere,
I reach deep into my heart and
it is your voice I hear.
The dreams are all so enticing,
that I would sleep my days away,
just to feel your lips to mine. 
and make blues skies out of gray
Memories which are haunting,
trivial though some may say,
but to my soul they are the life
when smiles led the way.
Waiting on a butterfly,
waiting on a dream,
waiting for you to
stroll with me.
Waiting on the sunshine,
waiting on the blue,
waiting on the clouds
to dance the night with you.
Time keeps on moving,
it never stands still,
days into years
record how I feel.
My emotions are
stronger each day,
I love your more
than words can say.
I went to the mountain,
to shout out your name,
instead I just whispered
in  a most passionate way.
Listen close and you will hear,
the words of love my heart shares.
Nothing can change how I feel,
not even if my heart stood still.
I bargained for eternity,
just to hold you close to me.
No matter what you say or do,
you are in my heart and I love you.
I took to the heavens, to beg and to plea,
that you and I would celebrate for eternity.
The combination of heart and soul,
joined together in forever's fold.
Nothing can take you away from me,
we are more than a foolish dream.
You are my good morning and good night,
you are the sweet love of my life.
Wake to your tender kiss, is a moment
I wouldn't miss.
I'm betting on the angels,
grasping at the stars,
for you and I are one,
whether near or far.
Joined together,
never to part,
for we collided
both soul and heart.
I'm betting on the angels,
grasping at the stars,
for you and I are one,
whether near or far.

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.

...in 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.

Whispers of Love

Whispers of love
I share with you,
from my heart to yours
in the heavens blue.

Gaze at the stars
and you will see,
just how much
you mean to me.

Whispers of love,
I share with you,
from my heart to yours
in the heavens blue.

There is no silence,
only song in the night,
when the passionate whispers
sing of the love of my life.

Everyone has a path or two,
a journey with gray and blue,
the further we travel,  the more
we see, just what life has to bring.

There is a field of daisy,
where the sun shines bright
and sometimes there is a mountain,
that keeps you from my sight.

Till early morning sunrise,
reminds me of the day,
when love first appeared
and I was never quite the same.

Obstacles are barriers set by the mind,
everything else is movable.
I am one with you,
one with the dream,
listen closely
while our hearts sing.
We are the stars at night,
the sun in the morn,
you and I are love,
and our love is forevermore.
I am one with you,
one with the dream,
listen closely
while our hearts sing.
We are the moment,
whether near or far,
for our hearts are joined
like the sky to the stars.
I am one with you,
one with the dream,
listen closely
while our hearts sing.

I met with the devil
and it was no surprise,
what the devil had in mind.

The journey long and filled with
despair, till the  I changed
direction and you found here.

Little bit of heart and soul
and our love foretold and
all the memories that I hold,
your are now a part of me,
no its not a dream.

Every thought of you and
take a song or two and there I
go dancing on those clouds
with you.

Little bit of heart and soul
and our love foretold and
all the memories that I hold,
now your are a part of me,
no it is not a dream.

When I wake up my
first thought is you,
puts smile on my face
and paints the sky a
pretty blue.

Little bit of heart and soul
and our love foretold,
all the memories that I hold,
you are now a part of me,
no it's not a dream.

When I close my eyes at night,
I just can't fight the visions of
you holding me tight, you
are now a part of me.

More - Vic Damone

Andrea Bocelli - More

There are so many songs that can be our song, but for the moment, I think it is more... More than the greatest love the world has known.

Hey Soul Partner...Let's Dance.

The magic of the music,
the power of the dreams
and in the dark of night,
upon the clouds...we dance.

We embrace the moment,
challenge all obstacles
and with love in our hears,
we celebrate.

To my soul partner... I love you.

Save the Last Dance For Me.

Life is a dance and the world our ballroom,
embrace it with each new step.
The weather is as near perfect today as one can imagine. No rain, no humidity, warm and sunny but not to hot. As I worked in the flower bed and thought about that last dance, it occurred to me that each day we dance through life, embracing all that it is. Our dance consist of the courtesy, bows, jumps and spins and a occasional stumble and fall. Sometimes it seems as if we are dancing so fast we fail to appreciate the partner of life. It is love of life that creates that romantic slow dance that exudes with passion. We partner with the world around us while taking in the air we breathe and exhaling with that very love for life.
My emotions can get the best of me at times as I think about the experience in which I chose to dance. Some of them making sense at the time, found me flat on the dance floor needing that hand to pull me back on my feet.  I have to remind myself that I am only one part of life's partnership and therefore I can be only responsible for the choices I myself make. Though sadness and sorrow sometimes edge their way in and try to take control of the dance, the beauty life pulls us back reminding us that we lead the steps.
I began to dance when only tears fell,
circling and circling around my own hell.
I thought no one knew the steps and
that I was trapped in an awful mess.
The world revealed to me,
the steps of life that set me free.
Led me to that cloud up high
where you took my hand and
we danced through life.
Our song is playing...put your head on my shoulder, whisper in my ear...

There is a story that has
yet to be explained
and a road traveled
that is a bit insane.

Some things you can't let go of
and so much more I need to know.
I find myself wondering why,
some chapters still make me cry.

Like an unfinished puzzle,
there are pieces that are missing.
I am searching high and low
spending my life on wishing.

There is a story that
has yet to be explained
and a road traveled
that is a bit insane.

It is the memories
and all those dreams,
the laughter of heart
even when we are a part.

It is the way you smile,
your most charming style,
the passing of time and
those God forsaken miles,

It is the kiss of morn and
what life has in store,
that keeps me begging
for just a little more.

It is what you mean to me,
you are my everything,
my embrace of life,
that I celebrate both
day and night.

Barely in with two hours of sleep,
I woke from an incredible dream.
Unimaginable but true, I was there
right next to you .
Surreal is this particular view,
where a soul encountering comes
shining on through.
Heart racing and I can hardly breathe,
settle down it is just a dream.
We spoke, we shared and embraced,
we stood there passionately face to face.
My heart is slowing, I'm wide awake,
the dream was our new meeting place.

I have a fascination which borders on the side of obsession for growing the Medinilla flower. It always amazes me  how the blooms can be larger than the plant it grows on. Their petals and bracts gracefully arch as if they were bending down to the earth. In all reality their blooms are just to heavy to keep erect. Customers at the market where hoping I could propagate from a few stem cuttings for them, but I thought I would chance growing them from seed. My success rate growing from seed has never been to positive and yet I find the challenge from those that do succeed, personally rewarding.
Nature and especially  gardening, always presents a challenge and yet brings about a comfort zone I use to think oh if these flowers could talk, the stories they would tell.
Whispers of love,
meant only for you,
listen closely as
your heart would
have you do.
Catch that bluebird,
take a flight through
the air, like the wind
to my soul, I felt your
love as we shared.
Whispers of love,
meant only for you,
listen closely as your
heart would have you
I stripped away the sadness,
no shades in dark hues,
only sunshine for me
and you.
There is something to be learned from everything,
in accepting that makes us wiser.

To live is to love..
There is no greater gift
than the sharing of hearts.
Once loved,
always loved.
Something's can't be taken away,
the experience called love,
it is forever in
the making.
It is that easy,
just follow me,
close your eyes and
lean on memories.

Envision the stars and
the clouds in the sky,
know that I am with you,
I'm right by your side.

It is that easy,
just follow me,
close your eyes and
lean on memories.

My feelings are a mix of
a sad song and a love song.
If I let go I would be an empty shell,
void of your love.
Two hearts, one love...

Who we are and what people think we are has been a nagging thought for sometime now. Like a diamond with many facets, we are many things to many people and through the eye of the universe we are nothing. Which brings me to,we are simply what we want people to believe we are. Beyond our word like expressions we are energy. The energy can pass through time and space to connect souls. I believe that is so when we strip ourselves of human self.

I saw a heart,
I felt it beat,
shared a love,
stored memories.

Held a moment,
went for a spin,
danced on a cloud,
rejoiced from within.

The tenderness and kindness,
like no other before or now,
took my heart and held it,
while sharing in a smile.

Compassion a gem in
the treasure of life,
where sharing the moment,
was truly a delight.
It is good that I have to work the farmers market tomorrow. I kept battling my thoughts on how many reasons why I don't want to work tomorrow and how many reasons why I should. The humidity has me in a slight slump and I find myself lost somewhere between my memories and my dreams. Somehow as the days pass , you find yourself one step closer to the end chapters. I think of the people that I had to say goodbye to and what their last chapters were like.
There is no doubt that the greatest gift life has to offer is love. Unconditional love is a rare but completing bonding of souls. I do think I am the "hopeless romantic" as I embrace the beauty of love in order to distance the harsh darkness that negativity can place upon a person's soul. What is this great love? Friendship, happiness, compassion, desire, it is everything and it is nothing. It is my head upon your chest listening to your heart beat and a gentle touch across your brow. It is the sharing of hearts and the embracing of souls. The whispers that break through the silence and the visions that can be seen in the night sky.

I hold your love,
I hold it close,
for the greatest fear,
is letting go.

Bonded two into one,
butter melting in the sun,
love's sweet whisper in the air,
of hearts that stopped to share.
Dream, fantasy, chapter or two,
story written, took to the blue,
winds blowing , I'm far away,
looking back on yesterday.

Troubled journey, mountain high,
wanted to believe and therefore denied.
No image nor view, it is what I needed
to see me through.


I held the tears,
kept them inside,
refused to let them
document time.

Today they have fallen,
to wash away, the lies
and deceit that made its

Staring reality in the face,
reveals how far we have come.

Blah, blah, blah, blah...

It is not always black and white. I find myself caught up in this summer humidity, where my body is lazy and my mind is over active. There is always a new revelation or a new way of looking at an old experience. In reality what matters is how the experience is perceived. Our senses or inner consciousness takes what it needs for the moment. It is in the tool box of survival that we find love and faith as the stepping stones on a blinded path.
I thought about what variables would be necessary to change the direction of life. I can't erase what has already been written, for those moments in time led me to today. I am a bit afraid of comfort, as if my flower gardens and greenhouse have summoned me. I find those thoughts and actions to be a bit backwards as if I were on some great slide of life. At times I feel connected and yet separated.
Reviewing life , it is as if a reading a new story for the first time. The reality has changed the facts as it alters the chapters  and leaves  the ending standing in question.

As the D rolls over it becomes rounder and rounder. It is as easy to see the good as the evil. With love in our hearts the image is clearer.
