Dearest

I surrender
go in devoted hope
your heart to drift,
a plate properly set
should the open air
cause weariness.

I cannot promise
good returned to you
remember the lessons
the way I lived,
the sun shines despite
the clouds dressing in black.

I plead you
listen to the bluebird
temper your pride,
grass only grows
in acceptable weather
being still, until brighter days.

I urge, make do
your blessings abundant
whether richer or poorer
your spirit fulfilled,
go now, your wings prepared
the journey awaits your destiny.

A woman rendezvous
befriended me
with kindness, met her smile
in pursuit of desire.

She once upon a time
posed in this very place
forlorn and dismayed.

We shared hope
space eternal.

My mind aroused.

A summer swirling
around the world.

Here, but not there
lover’s infatuation
or is this really love?

A desire of being known
holding a kiss inside
she wandered into my life.
A woman I once met.

Son, I remember
your opening ocean-blue eyes
a timid attempt to love me
peeking through slits
one eye open, another closed
fully amazed at what you saw.

Redbud, The deep blue ocean
melting tender hearts.
The garden is blooming
alight with purple blossoms
radiance for our eyes
give us pause to rest awhile.

Redbud, The deep blue ocean
sheltering life’s hope.
Beautiful! Spring arrives!
I barely breathe, soul
keep this moment forever
carry it to paradise.

Redbud, The deep blue ocean
showing the way.
The winds blow east
scattering seeds along
a path takes us home
a trail of purple buds blossoming.
