First Snow   Leave a comment

With icy wand in frigid hand

The Snow Queen comes

To strike the land.

.

And the cold comes

On muffled drums

With white frozen flakes

To fill fields and lakes (with snow).

.

The Snow Queen is there

With frost in her hair

And all of her maidens

Burdened and laden

~~ The Silence of the Night ~~   1 comment

It’s a, soft, peaceful time.

Stars wink down from 

The magnificence of their heavens

I marvel at their beauty as 

I permit the shadows of evening

To wrap my mind in the quiet

And I am at peace with

The silence of the night.

56 Years Ago Tonight   1 comment

*************************** m**************************

**************************************

Some of you may recognize this.  It’s an annual tradition of mine.  It’s to honor the memory of a time precious to me, and a brief part of my life shared with a beautiful young woman who chose to share her love with me.

*********************
At the beginning of December
Conversations turned to snow
It was always in her questions
Wherever we would go
I promised I would take her
So that finally she would know
But angels came to take her home
And she never saw the snow.
***************
As the chill of winter settles on the land and brings gray clouds the horizon, memories of another December come to mind and I feel a presence, and I hear a soft whisper, “Don’t be so sad, dearest.  I’ve been with you all this time, every day of every year…, and, yes darlin’, even in the snow”.  A quick caress and she is gone again. Christmas…., a time we were, sadly, never to be able to share with each other.

In memory of Gayle Marie
December 10, 1962 Heaven gained another angel…, and another star shone brightly in the night sky…., 56 years ago tonight…..

Tonight my heart mourns her absence.  Tomorrow  I will celebrate  the  happiness  and  the  love  that we shared .

Good Night Everybody

Blessings to all of you !

Pure white snowflakes

Drifting silently on a

Gentle evening breeze…

~~ Time ~~   3 comments

Time is weighing heavy on the shoulders, 

Each minute, each hour, day, week, year.

Everything seems more of a burdensome,

The mornings, evenings, memories, tears.

Time, even when he was younger there was never enough

for work, study, play, friends, romance, or other stuff

Winter is coming, and the sun slowly sets

What has happened to my time? …but he forgets.

There’s a certain sadness in all of this…

but wait…, he remembers his first kiss

and that opens the door to all of the joys hidden in his heart.

Good Night Everybody !!!

~~~ Too Many Miles ~~~   2 comments

I venture forth when shadows
Steal the evening’s light
Wandering darkened pathways
Through the blackened night
I passed by your window
Gazed on you asleep
Continued on my journey
Into the long night’s deep
Had I stopped
would want to stay
But too many miles
Before light of day…

When I see the warmth in your eyes

And the joy in your smile

My heart hears the music of your love
