Note To Selves

It’s a new day (again)

in another calendar year

Things are not as they have been

but you can give up all your fears

Just let it all come your way; then

hang on to only what is dear

You may lose, or even gain some, when

love becomes the only voice, you choose to hear

Oh, glorious sky of day

coaxing this darkness from where it lay

Open your eyes,”  I hear you say

 Joining sun, you pull these blues away

All is well; my fears allay


Oh, velvety sky of night

soak this heart in brilliant starlight

make it sparkle; golden and bright

Unleash the dreams behind these eyes

as past and present become allies




Paper Love


It wasn’t the thing

though I adored your choice of things

‘Twasn’t the price or quantity; nor size

but the unexpected moment of surprise

It wasn’t an occasion or special day of the week

 that became all its own; so sweet

It was the wanting to, the thoughtful intention, the just-because

It was all those things; It was pure love

the new year has begun without the sun

landscape of grey, choice hue for the day

but winter often lacks sun; outnumbering clouds have won

so, while we wait for golden rays, inward we search to find our way

thinking of future days and days past, all those memories held fast

with hope for peace in days to come; inner and outer wars, forever done

With the start

as fresh as bright white sheets

hung out to dry

eyelids flutter

admitting dazzling light

feet make contact

with what seems like

 a narrow wire blowing

in a strong wind

a vivid dream

still clinging to  branches

loosens it’s hold

of the sleep tree

 mind’s fuzziness forms thought

cup of coffee

body responds

with its forward stumble

to the kitchen

 toe hits a chair

sharp pain jolts you awake

you close your eyes

but can’t escape

this day has YOU in it

Leaving the grocery, I was told

I have a beautiful green soul

by the guy with a space

where a tooth should be in place

Then, as the car began to roll

Mumford and Sons sang Away My Soul 

I thought about what all this means

how I guess a soul could  be green

At the movie theater nearby

I was helped by a guy

who, when looking into his eyes

I witnessed the most beautiful green

soul-windows I believe I have seen

So taken was I, I told him so

as he handed me the tickets to go

I then hurried on my way

for it was a special day

where years have passed since our first date

so we had good cause to celebrate

But I’ll be happier still with this fate

if he is truly, my beautiful green soulmate

Our eyes shall delight

at morn’s early light

while trees don their spring greenery

 as a backdrop of gorgeous scenery

 rising sun speckles its shine

to highlight subtle hues divine

amid saturated beauty of floral display

time slows, as we breathe in the day
