Wintry Warmth

 

Holiday lights

glow warmer 

on a wintry morning

when there’s snow

We put up our Christmas lights the other day, and although it looked quite festive when we turned them on that evening, I was feeling a bit disappointed about our lack of snow here.  But when I awoke the next morning, I found to my inner child’s delight that it had snowed during the night!  There’s something extra magical about snow at Christmas time! ❄

And the lights do glow warmer…

Glowing Horizon


 

As my eyes are drawn east

my heart is drawn too

longing to fly into that glowing horizon

over there to you

Wings of Love

 

“Only on the wings of Love

can the heart fly to where the Beloved dwells.”

Beauty Remains

 

I miss the days when words flowed free

from mind to pen

They seem stuck now

clogged

and littered with negativity

Inspiration, creativity, and light

dimmed

I have nothing to offer

only thoughts induced through pain

And those I will not share because they benefit no one

including myself

But beauty still remains

all around me

even in the midst of suffering

though I may not be fully capable of enjoying its splendor in the way I “normally” would

 

And I will grab hold of it…

In My Dreams

 

Your beautiful eyes shining

reflecting the blue of the sea and sky

gaze passionately into mine

Windswept hair tickles our sun-kissed faces

and laughing, we lie together on the warm sand

making love to the rhythm of the ocean waves caressing the shore

 

Is you and me 

in my dreams

Blue

 

Blue as the skies

blue like your eyes

blue my heart sighs

when I think of you
