Hand in Hand   Leave a comment

Together in spirit
wherever you are
Be it here on the earth
or out on a star.

In sharing a smile
or in the world of a dream
In walking the miles
hand in hand.

Celtic Angel   3 comments

Capture 1

An angel so fair

A sight to be seen

Coal black hair

And eyes of green

A sweet Celtic goddess

A beauty sublime

Would only I guess

That she would be mine

And happy we are

O’er here by the sea

‘neath moon and star

To live dreams yet to be

Carefree Hearts   2 comments

Overhead in the night

In the moonlit sky

In formations and flights

Bringing songs with their cries

Wild geese made to roam

Never happy with one home

Reaching boundless skies above

Cry of the wind is their real love.

Wandering with carefree hearts…

Quiet Time   3 comments

Now is a quiet time

A place for verse

A space for rhyme.

What better way

In heart and mind

To end the day.

The day is ended

Work is done

Wrongs are mended.

The evening sky

In star filled dark

Asks not why

We search for love

‘neath silver moon

And stars above.

In this blissful peace

We find solace

(and) all else will cease.

The spirit inside

Finds its release

And no longer hides.

Words flow easily

The dream begins

And the page is filled.

Old Friends   Leave a comment

Spoke with an old friend today.  We hadn’t been in touch for 3 years, but that’s how it’s been for a long time now.  Long silent periods, then one or the other will pick up the phone and call.  “Been thinkin’ of you and just had to find out how you are”.  Known each other since we were 10 and were in constant contact with each other for more than 20 years.  By then both were married and had lives to attend to, but, once in a while, on quiet evenings, the phone would ring and a protracted conversation would ensue – catching up on each other’s lives.  In our conversation this afternoon, it was so familiar and comfortable, as though we  had just spoken together yesterday.  Interesting how some people can enter and stay in your life and in your heart like this.  As the conversation ended, I told her, “Just had to know that you’re alright, “Curly-top”, and I love you”.  Her response was, “I’m just just fine now “Sundown”, and I love you too.  Bye now.”  And we’ll both be alright now…, both waiting for the next phone call.  Old friends (of more than 50 years) and still going strong.

Gone   Leave a comment

All the time, then never,
Moments I will hold forever.
A loss, a gain,
A neverending pain.

These few lines evoke memories sweet
as any ever known.
From deep within the heart to greet
a love that was my own.

It passed before me once before
and lingered for a while
then slipped through an open door
and down a specteral aisle.
