Thank You!

Thank You!

Alone I sit, as in a dream,
gazing blankly at my screen.

Stray thoughts drift along the side;
something profound lurks inside.

Inspiration needs a lift,
thoughts flutter past, I need a gift.

Out the window my eyes gaze;
a peaceful scene, a sunny day,

Horses gambol in the field
while I wait for thoughts to build.

Then thoughts of love, like gentle pearls
drop down on me and all my worlds,

words filled with encouragement–
through keen comments, awards sent.

This friends and readers far and near
have whispered in my writer’s ear.

How could the scribbles from my mind
inspire reactions of this kind?

Could it be my thoughts have power
to move people; make love flower?

There’s just one test I think. I know!
to keep on writing down the flow…..

Failing Dog

My dog loves me well,

this even strangers can tell.

but she is not well.

God made dogs so kind

’cause people have broken minds;

their souls dogs will find.

Dog Love

Love shines from dogs’ eyes

while family ignores them.

And hearts are hungry.

This is dedicated to Doug.
 You’re right. Words have power.
Once spoken they resonate forever.
No matter what the future brings, you will always be a part of me. 

 I Love You

“I love you.”

The words are difficult to speak at first.
Three small words.

The meaning varies so much
from person to person,
from situation to situation.

“I love you.”

The words rarely mean the same thing to one
as they do to another.
They change, forever, the temper of a relationship.

They bare my soul and give you power….
power to accept or to refuse,
power to bring great joy, or great pain.

They present my open heart to you,
show my trust and faith in the possible,
ask for the possibility of trust and faith in return.

They offer my willingness to share intimacy,
physical, spiritual, and mental;
my innermost thoughts and beliefs,
desires, pains, memories, joys and triumphs.

They speak of my loneliness,
my selfish need to feel cherished,
my need to be allowed to protect and hold sacred
the heart I see in you.

They beg the questions:

“May I share your dreams?”
“Would you consider building a future with me?”
“Is there an empty place in your life and heart
that has been waiting for my life and heart,
as mine waits for yours?”

With these three small words
come small sharp shards of fear….
fear of rejection,
fear of disinterest,
fear that a heart that has never had love returned,
a heart so deprived,
may never trust,
never accept,
never open.

Still, I take this step forward to you.

I reveal my soul, my heart.
I oil the rusted bars and throw open the fortress door.
I give you the key with these three words:

“I love you.”

Diversification Cooperation

We move through life
bodies and brains,
minds and hearts.
Co-operation.

Bodies are wonderous
shells for our souls,
tools for our lives.
Transportation.

Brains work tirelessly
seek endless knowledge,
correlate facts.
Education.

Minds soar freely
encompass all,
traverse the universe.
Imagination.

Hearts hone perception
revel in love,
define our meaning.
Salvation.
