Anniversary?

Monday, October 7th, 2013

How

does

one

celebrate
a lingering love
on the anniversary date
when the lover has moved on
and the commitment is gone
but deep connection persists
and only wisdom resists
the heart’s desire to call
and walk again – now wiser – this fall?

The eighth sixth of October

Family of Love

Sunday, December 12th, 2010

i am thankful to have two families –
one who gives me Love,
the other who gave me life

i recognize them by their faces when they greet me –
Love’s reflection shines in the eyes and smiles of one as they warmly initiate or return my hug beckoning me closer,
pain’s darkness meets me in the faces of the others repelling us like magnets of the same pole as we each stay on our safer side of fear’s fence

i carry the energy of each inside me –
the boundless Love that shines brighter each day and sweeps me toward my passions, self-care, and allows me to complete my mission as a dispenser of unconditional Love,
the dark dusty corners of my youth when i forget who I am or take an unintentional wrong turn and lose my way from Light

sometimes I am confused temporarily –
wolves disguised as sheep seek the warmth of my heart and my Love welcomes the sheep closer until the wolf’s rank odor penetrates my awareness and I awaken to the darkness lurking beneath the sheep’s false shell,
sometimes my own darkness recognizes its reflection too quickly in another and my fear of being swallowed in the black hole of pain causes me to run without seeing the greater Love that lives in that sould too

i am grateful for each –
those who give Love allow me to see the darkness of broken places and bring Light and gently healing to them,
those who bring darkness help me see where i’ve been and invite me to find my own Light and stand in it bravely and firmly

thank you for these opportunities

i love you all

Peace

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

Breathing down deeply within the spaces of my heart,
Distractions fall away and offer a new start.
I find that I am full, within this empty space.
Love is all there is. Peaceful smile illuminates my face.

The Sixth of October

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

“Hey there,” she called unsurely to the sitting man reading a book.
He, taller than she remembered, smiled with a happy, friendly look.
He rose from the table and greeted her more warmly than most she known. Then,
they began their journey together, along a path to a place she had not been.

“I presume we’ll be good friends,” seemed to be the first thing he said.
Surprised by his certain declaration, those words still linger in her head.
“Dismount” read the sign and they shared an awkward first chuckle,
She could feel it then, unexpected, as her knees began to buckle.

As he thoughtfully suggested, she had worn her walking shoes.
She listened while he shared, laid himself bare, and, with humor, amused.
His kindness, his warmth, his earnest quest to inspire
all shown brightly, precious life not to pass lightly, well-being his desire.

In the warm sun, with warm hearts, the miles and time flew by.
Over lunch, she spoke of chasing dreams, the days she felt like she could fly.
With a wistful tear, she shared her deep wish to feel that way again.
Encouraging her that day would come, he was already a friend.

Returning home up the hill, through the woods, passing the railing,
she asked careful questions. He shared his growth, the questions, the failing.
They paused at the last curve by the water to soak up one more awesome look
of the autumn leaves reflecting in the canal –like pictures in a coffee table book.

A few stairs, a few more steps, and a reluctant hug that came too soon,
She closed the car door, felt her heart pound as her soul began to swoon.
She felt the thudding click of The Cogs turning The Gears of The Universe as they aligned
It felt that the hand of Destiny held the pen. Their next chapter had just been signed.

Many questions still unanswered of what will come from that day -the sixth of October
Still the rightness is certain, the connection persists with the zeal of the drunk finally sober.
Amid all the future’s uncertainties, she knows sure she’ll never again be the same
for she has been touched by the soul, the spirit, The One with Craig for his name.

CHANGE

Monday, August 9th, 2010

Cherished attachments fall away as
Hope arises that
Another day will bring
New beginnings and
Gifts of Love, for only Love is
Eternal, My Friend and Once Beloved.
