    Out of the Blue

    Out of the blue, and the tears start falling.
    Was doing just fine a minute ago.
    Then I saw your face, and I heard your voice,
    And I felt the familiar sorrow.
    Oh, it's not that I don't want to remember,
    Because I don't want to ever forget ~
    Not ready today for a sweet memory
    When you're so far away...
    Out of the blue, and these tears keep falling.
    Was doing just fine a minute ago...

    Summer

    Oh, the brutality that
    No request was made,
    No permission sought
    To thunder down the sun
    And choke a person -
    Hot!

    Breathe, we tell ourselves,
    The memory of months ago
    When winter settled gentle
    As the snow.

    Mother Nature,
    Beseeched of mercy,
    Beg we for a drink
    Of cloudy shade -
    To eclipse this infliction
    Of Summer.

    Twenty five years, and he
    Still reaches for her hand
    With the gentle affection
    Of true devotion ~
    No words need spoken,
    Just this one simple gesture
    Declares undying love
    For the lady he treasures.

    I wish the sun would take my troubles
    When it sets tonight ~ and drop them
    Somewhere in the ocean of oblivion.

    God knows,
    And when the
    Tears won't wait,
    I cry ~
    Feeling, knowing
    That with each one
    A load is
    Lifted, carried
    From my heart
    To His.

    Chasing Time

    When time gets away from a writer,
    A grimace, perhaps, from a glance
    At the clock ~ However,
    Agenda is nothing more than an
    Irrelevant annoyance.
    When time gets away from a writer,
    He chases it and captures it, uses
    Hands on a clock as punctuation marks,
    Building thoughts upon words with
    Moments of opportunity.

    Taken

    Take me ~ take all of me
    Deep into the depths of love.
    Untangle these binds of emptiness
    Until I'm free to explore
    Passion's caverns.

    June pushed through the
    Fanciful zephyr of Spring,
    And flipped the pages of time
    With the force of a Summer
    Storm.

    Let it down
    The mask you're wearing
    Let it go
    The idea of being perfect
    Let it grow
    The trust in living your own truth

    Let it be
    Okay to be yourself
    And to like yourself
    And to love the person
    You are becoming every day

    Untethered

    Treading water, exhausted in this
    Ocean of turmoil, thoughts and emotions
    Have churned ~ Sigh with the weight
    Of trust untethered, distraught at the
    Reality that no one could ever, possibly
    Understand...

    Just one wave away
    From going under.
