THE GENTLE MAN

 

Sitting outside

Thoughts of you

Who nurtured

The little girl

With your quiet wisdom

Patience

And gentle spirit

Watching cartoons with her

Showing her how to pick strawberries

Harvesting corn

Carving pumpkins together

Picking checkerberries

Finding Christmas trees in the woods

Rides in the truck

Going to the corner store on Sundays

How to appreciate nature

Walking in the woods

With a most beloved dog

Showing her how to skip rocks

How to walk on the rocks

By the seashore

Appreciating the value of books

And reading

Sharing stories

of his adventures

With the little girl

That inspired

Her creative ambitions

Sharing his affinity for cats

And so much more

When the time came

The young girl

Had grown

It was time to give back

To him

For all the memories

And the gentle love

He gave to her

Every time she

Rests in nature

Takes walks or

Sits by seashore

I know

He is there beside me

Along with Dino

For he

Is my Beloved grandfather

STILL BAKING with YOU

Brownies

Fresh baked toll house cookies

When she came home from school

Swedish Orange braids

Apple pies

Pumpkin chiffon pies

Swedish meatballs

Remembrances

Aromas

Of the warmth

Hearth and home

She provided

To a young girl

Whom she nurtured

With love, guidance, kindness

And so much more

The little girl loved her

Because she

Offered inspiration

Support to go after her dreams

To be her own person

She shared with the little girl

Her love for classical music

Hymns

And the importance of a strong faith

She was always there

For the little girl

And when the time came

The little girl

Then a woman

Was there for her

Because it was time

For the young woman

To give back

The love she had received

And when the mood

To bake touches

I know

She is around

And always will be

For she is

My beloved grandmother

SPIRIT SONG

20170902_135550

Spirit Song

Dances in the wind

Under the blue canvas

Wispy clouds

Images of feathers

Eagles and hawks

Call

Spirit Song

Dances in the wind

Listening to the echoes

Of wisdom

Leading her path

Spirit Song

Dances in the wind

Taking flight within

Spirit Song

Dances in the wind

Listening now

For answers she has sought

Within her

Spirit Song

Dances in the wind

Arms open wide

Twirling in the rays

Beneath the blue canvas

The feather

In her long hair

Tickles her face with joy

Eagle wind

Twirling with her

Spirit Song

Dances in the wind

Listening within

Revealing ancient ways

Coming to life within her

Spirit Song

Dances in the wind

Echoes whispering

Within the wind of time

She listens

Spirit Song

Dances in the wind

Letting her spirit sing

The song she always heard

But never listened

Follow the callings

Within the heart

And those seeking

Goodness, truth and love

Will find her

Spirit Song

Carrying her peace pipe

Stones of sacredness

And her drum

The heartbeat of the soul

Spirit Song

Dancing in the wind

Coming into being

OH COME YE FALL

Fall Leaves Pexels

Oh come ye fall

The spirit of thy birth

Oh come ye fall

Your refreshing restorative aromas await thee

Oh come ye fall

Paint your canvas

With rich warm spicey hues

So that

The mountains and the trees

May capture the rays of light

Reflecting their beauty

Upon the mirrors of blue

Twice the enchantment

Oh come ye fall

The crisp apples

Abundant

And warm apple pie await to delight

Oh come ye fall

When the days are warm

And nights cold and crisp

To nestle within warm blankets

With and by loved ones

Oh come ye fall

By the crackling fires

As the harvest moon

Shines forth upon us

Oh come ye fall

As nature resounds

In the spectacle

Of warm spicy awe

Hawks, eagles, coyotes, wolves and deer

And the elusive twilighter

With its haunting hoot

Announcing the awakening

Of fall’s embrace

Oh come ye fall

The spirit of thy birth

Unfolding memories

When the child

Came alive

Escaping with excitement

Day and night

Within her precious sanctuary

Communing with you

In the wilderness of the northern mountains

Oh come ye fall

The spirit of thy birth

Come and let us

Play within

The awe

The transformation of you

Oh come ye fall

For you are upon

The spirit of thy birth!

PINK RUG!

 

Gertieone

In times of loneliness

She comes to mind

Her warmth

Her silliness

Upon her pink rug

Full of catnip

And toys askew

Her companionship

Her coat of silky black

In times of loneliness

She comes to mind

Her conversations

And then walking away

In times of loneliness

She comes to mind

Her comfort

Her love

Her protectiveness

In times of despair and sorrow

Brought joy and peace

In times of loneliness

She comes to mind

Although

Her presence is no longer

She still inspires and gifts

From afar

Where the light shines

Laughter

Joy

And comfort

Every time she comes to mind

In times of loneliness

Gertie illuminates

The loneliness

Turning it into

Peace and comfort

Within forevermore

FOOTSTEPS……. BY THE SEA

Footsteps

By the sea

As the waves

Roll in and out

Seagulls

Hover and cry

Waves hitting rocks

Sending bursts of briny water

Into the air

Splashing upon one’s being

Footsteps

By the sea

Warm sand

Beneath thy feet

Rays of warmth

Soothed by breezes

Footsteps

By the sea

The quietude of solitude

Mesmerized by

Contemplation

Reflections of distance memories

Within the waves

Footsteps

By the sea

Refreshing

Cleansing

Nestled within the contemplation

Of waiting

As the ocean echoes

Looking down

A rose colored rock

Placed within the shallow pool

Reaching down

As the water sparkled

Within the rays

Turning it over

Pause….Breathe…Begin again…..

Footsteps

By the sea………..

CHORDS OF LOVE

 

Here by

The crackling fire

Warming thy being

Strumming the guitar

Feeling the chords

Revealing words

Composing into song

Thoughts of you

Reflections of emotions

Coming through the chords

Echoing your charms

Like a lullaby

Your light

And your love

Illuminating

Everything you touched

With grace

Here by

The crackling fire

As embers rise and dance

Then disappear

Your content and humble spirit

Quieted the thunder

Of a restless soul

And softened the fire

Within thy being

As the moon’s tranquil rays

Release enchantment

Into the night

Feeling the chords

Of emotion well up within

Revealing words

Composing into song

Thinking of you

And where you have gone

Wondering if this song

If ever written

Will capture the

Essence of your charms

To return

For you, are the rose

Nestled within thy heart

And thy night’s companion

Through these chords of love and desire

Under the moon’s rays

Nestled by the warm

Brilliant crackling fire

Is the only remembrance

Of you, my sweet rose
