Poetry, Paintings, and Ponderings: Through My Eyes

Calming Waters April 6, 2012

The calming waters always make me feel better.



I wish I could float on moonbeams

into the inky black sky

I would follow the beams

from my backyard

right into yours

I would land in your arms

and we could dance the night away


Filtered Sunlight

Very few things beat the beauty of sunlight shining through the branches of a tree. I took this photo in Vermont. I stretched out to take a break from traveling and fell asleep on the soft grass. When I awoke, this was my view.


Our Kind of Love

Can we just freeze this moment in time

letting the rest of the world pass us by

as we slowly dance in the drenching rain

to the slow beat of the music in our heads

our bodies clinging together tightly

surrounded in our veil of love


I know that this kind of love doesn’t last

the moment will be just a dim memory

the demanding world always crashes in

forces work against our brand of love

and we are left tasting bitterness

dancing, rainy days can never last forever
