The fresh scent of April is in the air;
a garden wedding and their sweet smiles bloom.
The sun drops honey from the sky so fair.
Soon to come is their honeymoon.

Six nights as warm as soft cashmere now loom
for the newlyweds, who...Read More

Wants!
They are so hard to handle.
Everyone has one, even if they don’t want one. 
Some try to hide theirs, but it shows. 
I hate to be the bearer of bad news. 

What are they exactly?
Hard to say. They show up...Read More

Willow…
Skipping rocks.
Sorrow…
Crying sometime.
Missing…
You.

The echo in the hall way is deafening. 
I try hard to make no noise at all. 
I don’t want to wake even one memory. 
It is quiet this morning, I am going outside.

Tripped Up

Things take us from what is important, easily. 
Distractions of life, responsibilities we deem high on the list. 
Missed promises, forgotten details, getting older now. 
Things have less importance, and time has new meaning.

dried floral bouquet
made with blooms from my garden

And another one bites the dust. 

Marriage. 
My friend, my neighbor, the lady next door, 
Rampant miscalculations of being too nice, 
two people that complain, endlessly.

The first time, she was angry. 
I have no idea why. 
Was there a reason to be had, 
or did she just make it up? 
Some times, that happens.
We don’t talk about that… 
much.

When I get old?
When will that be?

Elementary 123’s, 
High (School) on something they call life, 
College a scam, 
Marriage demand(s)
Family, a fan,

Chickens

Are by far my favorite bird. 

They give and take very little. 
They kill the bugs on the property, 

Not by chemical intervention, 
but by simply eating the problem away. 
What more can I say.
