Kisses Through the Distance


                                          In the still morning  
                                          I felt a kiss on my cheek
                                          and I closed my eyes.
                                          I knew it's the sudden breeze
                                          but I whispered your name.

                                          I take a deep breath
                                          surrounded by gardenias
                                          and blow you a kiss.
                                          It will be there tomorrow...
                                          Open windows, doors, and lips.

To Deborah Guzzi.

LOVE God is always love Forever seek the kingdom; Praise the creator Keep giving what you can give Please endure until the end ANGELS Beautiful Heavens Protecting the meek ones earth Watching over us Helping us to cope with life Comforted with hope and trust MUSIC When you find rhythm You find your hearts inner core Celebrate the times Make them better than before Reminisce and dance all night

The Spirit Prevails

It is a new day
Something wonderful happened
You are now at peace
Like a phoenix rising up
From the ashes you prevail

We shall not mourn you
For you are not gone at all
We may not see you
Your presence lives on in us
Enduring the test of time

Radiant light shines
Upon us all forever
Glorious rays gleam
Emitting from your spirit
Keeping your memory strong

The lives you have touched
Will never forget you now
Though we may shed tears
These are tears of happiness 
Your spirit forever reigns

In the days to come
When we are all together
Celebrating life
Your spirit will consume us
Your peace will be our strength

Joy and happiness
Will be felt every moment
You gave us reason
To have faith in the future
Your legacy will live on…………..

I named her Bambi
Spindly legged Jersey calf
bought to raise for beef
I fell in love with soft eyes
My companion she became

She wakes to greet kids
Walk with them to school bus stop
Shared morning coffee
when she meets me on the porch
A cup for me    bowl for her

Mischievous Bambi
tromping in neighbor’s garden
He yells    waves his arms
She sticks her head in a bush
thinking he cannot see her

Amongst seeds of words
sophistication resides,
this Utah lady
spreads her light across the globe...
with friendship personified.

Lay your sorrows down
Upon my healing altar,
Walk with me a while
And I’ll tell you of your worth,
So much more than you believe.

Platonic Relationships

The bonding of trust
to a friend without desires
someone to turn to
emotion free yet sincere,
two logical minds at peace

What I Love Most About PoetrySoup

Poetry matters,
but it’s just a bonus here.
The real deal lies in
enjoying friends at a place
open 24/7!

Flavors of Winter

Rich hot chocolate
marshmallows roast o’er the pit
gazing China moon
twinkling stars in midnight blue
laughter and snuggling galore!
