Anniversary Thoughts

Love becomes quiet
As the years accumulate
As its roots deepen
A tree becomes more stable
Capable of enduring

Annual Celebration

his hair is grayer
and his skin more wrinkled, but
he's a better friend
than he was the day before --
my anniversary man.

Swinging on a Star

God's hand reached through time
dropping brilliance in the night
love's eternal gift
one star named for "my best friend"
our anniversary light

what’s the difference
october from september –
is it simply time
to put on a warmer coat,
a condition of one’s mind?

what’s the difference?
is there a hazy region
a mystic soul’s eye,
retreat to inner being,
a sort of hidden season?

all i know is this –
i sense the whole world has changed -
sun less warm, less bright
colors are taken cover,
a sixth sense taken over

Remembering them   
is deep sorrow piercing the  
heart that must weep to release 
what the flesh can't overcome.

Fiftieth Anniversary

jackolanturns grin atop rolls of dry fodder strains of music float all eyes watch the couple dance they see only each other ~//~ fine country setting whiffs of barbeque remain the chaffing dish warm old friends who now sipping wine reflect on their own journey ~//~ cake patiently waits two aged hands cut the first slice they sample with flare celebrating fifty years as each other’s only mate ~//~ quiet solitude the two gently reflecting when later alone yes, we have had a good life they exclaimed to each other ~//~ © Oct, 14 2010 For Amy's Tanka contest

mild weather ahead
so says the news report
except for the wind
that frozen voice from the north
button up then till april

conjure now green vision
how happy those spring sounds
tulips thrusting up
refreshing smell of spring rain
just a winter’s nap away

She Offered Flowers

"come fluttering words, come drifting words to me . . . "
A Rambling Poet

She offered flowers
To her dear spirit Juno,
Thanking her for life,
For yet another birthday,
And continued protection.

Jack Horne, 17th July, for Constance's 'What is she doing?' contest
