VINTAGE LOVE


img025

Love shifts
like silky summer clouds
or frolicking waves.
We adapt to the challenges
of love year by year.
You take my hand and
we slow dance on the rug in the living room.
Sunlight warms our souls
while moonlight covers us with dreams.
Our young lovers embrace only in the past.
Take my hand…walk with me…
into this brave new world.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY

Generic Valentine


May you see love, beauty, joy, peace, and hope

in the ordinary corners of your life.

And may the fragrance of a flower,

the careless flight of a butterfly,  sun

on a sleeping cat, rain,

unexpected tolerance,

acts of compassion and

quiet faith…

remind you of

the mystery

of life

and love.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

Mended Heart – a poem for Valentine’s Day


MENDED HEART

My heart is stitched and
patched with tender threads
pieces of
worn silk,
cotton,
denim,
satin
and calico –
oddly cut shapes of
practical love
that repair
the wounds of my soul-flesh heart.

I remember
hues the yellow of the sun,
black of the darkness,
purpled passion,
blue of a baby’s first view,
neutral of a gritty shore,
green reflecting envy
in the red of blood,
brown as heavy
stalks of ripening grain,
silver of old hair and
golden dreams.
                                                                                                         
I believe
in the fabric
of tangled love
and color
as the world
coils into
black and white
around me.
