Poetry, creative writing and a desire to inspire….. Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.


#Loveuary ❤ Day 27 – To Be Loved

My Sister Ritu has an open invitation prompt for the month of February with the theme being Love.

To Be Loved

To have that acceptance 

For someone to say

“I love you as you are”

Makes you feel like a champ

Leaps And Bounds 

There is nothing I want more 

Than to close the distance rapidly 

Free falling into the silence

No parachute, no wings

Building that bridge piece by piece

The flames of this last crusade engulf me

There are moments that I am mere ashes blowing in the wind

But faith always pulls me together 

And God teaches me to fly a little further each day

We continue to grow in this together 

By leaps and bounds

Towering Thoughts


Remnants of the day

fall into the shadows

the sun makes its descent

slow and steady

appreciating the moments within the hours

thankful to be guided through

My towering thoughts can rest for a while

I could stand here all day

And let my thoughts wash out to the ocean

The waves would wash their thoughts upon me

We would enjoy our conversation

Our give and take

Revelling in meaningful things

Life would be life 

And I would let the day unfold 

As it was meant to

At The Corner of Nowhere 

In the midst of another night 

Waiting at the corner of nowhere 

Street lights heighten the anticipation 

It’s do or die

No consolation prize

Is this our opportunity to get away?

Make that great escape 

Hashtag #lovewillfindaway

So I wait 

And wonder if this is all in my mind

A daydream gone offline 

Looking around, it resembles the crossroads where we met

Romantic Tuesday #Loveuary ❤ – I See

When I look at you I see

All the fullness of what love means

And because love cannot truly be defined 

In you I see 

The endless expression of love divine 

You are burgeoning hope in the new morning’s light

You are the rush of overwhelming gratitude that hits me in the silence

When I look at you I see

A man desiring the hours of the day to move slowly 

So I can take advantage of every moment to hold you closer 

In you I see 

A soul full of life 

A thoughtful and and caring heart that shines incredibly 

Every day you amaze me

In you I see


All of who you are

Warriors and Men

Rising again

Facing the task before me

Stitched up wounds

What must be will be

The wise men spin tales of heroism

The jesters lighten the mood

I study the movement of the wind

Pondering my next move
