Faith In God Makes A Difference


                                            Commitments are hard
                                        Time is swift and life is short
                                              Misfortunes happen
                                      Faith in God makes a difference
                                         Times will pass much easier

Tanka-

as we walked the beach the pink skies softened the tide and smoothed lines in our faces.... your hand reached out to mine to touch a girl you once knew

                                                 With advancing years
                                                 Admiration, devotion

Wedding Vows

"Till death us do part"
Thus I stepped upon a trap;
Oh, Why I said that?
Now I wail to no avail,
Oh, my life is in shambles!

MARRIAGE

MARRIAGE – short version

Ah    togetherness
Can be a joy or a HELL!
It’s he    she     me    thee
And one must predominate
Which one is the Collie dog?

Talk about money
The stuff no one has enough
Can break a friendship
Can screw up a marriage
There’s my money    her money

Let’s talk about sex
Can be a joy or a HELL!
“I have a headache”
Home late – “I had a flat tire”
The fat lawyer sits and waits

Summer Night

summer storm
her bra on the sofa
undressing. . .
faint scent
dark hair falling

Love Note Wisdom

As love grows older,
we learn to bend-not to break,
our hearts mature but
when an argument flares up
silence and a cocktail helps.

a photo of a Spaniard

and his lovely bride. . .

           their fame and sad demise

Love and Marriage

the loving couple
marriage license safely signed
still lives in this world
only on their honeymoon
can it be wholly ignored

Splitsville

tear open the seal
thick folded papers land loud
eviscerated
like our forever, but how
soulmates aren’t supposed to end

Marriage and love

Love is what binds us
Love is what I feel for you
A divine union
Is marriage for you and me
Celebration of  our love

Marriage

Marriage is a deal
It gives love’s recognition
It is a blessing
It paves the way for more care
For each other in the world

BLISS

BLISS

near the river’s edge
     water lilies overflow
          in our sunlit eyes ~

we row through life’s bittersweet
           into breathless blue waters

In the dryer

When you're feeling chilled
I'll bring you a warm blanket
When one's not enough
I'll have more in the dryer
So you will never be cold

Entrusted Uchikake

Soft rainbows adorn
traditions of beauty sown
silken butterfly
the good wife sheds her cocoon
the daughter has a new home

The Wilted Rose

Bouquets overflowed
marriage smelling like a rose
years came and they went
fragrant flower lost its scent
like wilted rose in repose.
