Remember When? | A Valentine’s Day Poem

Remember When? We laughed all night. We kissed. We fought. We dreamed of travel to far off places, While we sunk our feet in the sand. Remember When? We held each other’s hand, At a funeral, At a wedding, At our children’s graduation? Remember When? Our love was young, And crazy. So many years… And … Continue reading Remember When? | A Valentine’s Day Poem

It’s the Little Things | Happy Thanksgiving 2015

It’s a quarter to three.  To be real honest, there isn’t anything special about today, and yet it’s probably the best day I’ve had in ages.  On the productivity scale of 1-10, ten being about as productive as one can get…I’m scoring myself about a three.  I’ve taken a shower, prepared bacon wrapped water chestnuts … Continue reading It’s the Little Things | Happy Thanksgiving 2015

It is This Love

It is not that first date. Or the first kiss. It is not that first Valentine’s, that was clearly a hit. It is not the night you both felt so much. The first intimate moment, that look or that touch.

So Far and Wide | A Poem

Not all is lost As we wander To and fro Searching for our souls Far and wide Searching The empty divide ~ Not all is empty This loathing path Of disarray Like clumsy youth We bump in the dark Searching for our souls Far and wide Searching With so much to hide  ~ But thou … Continue reading So Far and Wide | A Poem

My Love, For Sale | A Poem

  I feel like this poem might need to be clarified.  Why?  I'm not sure.  But it's been kicking around in my notebook for a couple of weeks, and for some reason I wanted to share it.  Still not sure why.  Anyway, to be clear, I get inspired sometimes by the strangest things.  This poem … Continue reading My Love, For Sale | A Poem
