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.


New Reality

The memories will never fade

Days when the setting sun captivated our eyes

Tears that fell when the “goodbye” was spoken silently

The environment changed around us

The ocean’s view showed us the endless possibilities

In your smile, I see the world in a constant state of renewal

Fingers tracing the softness of a face

The taste of freshly made coffee

The smallest details feel so extraordinary

Time stands still and then passes suddenly

I remember the first day when the dream became a reality

And the moment I held you one last time

Walking away and fading from sight, God granted us peace

The memories will never fade

Only increase the vividness of this new reality

The connecting of hope, faith and love

Hands clasped tightly, never again letting go



Totally Illuminated

In the middle of it all

The chaos

The drama

God stands over there

Waving his massive hands, frantically

saying “Look over here”

And once he captures our attention

All that chaos

All the drama

Seems to just dissipate

Eyes on God

A light in the heart

Life totally illuminated

Someday, It Will


The mist will be lifted


Will be in it’s proper place


Will be more than fine


Will not only be good


Will be

Beautiful Child

Holy One

I come to you

Heart renewed

Humble gratitude

You came down

Took away all shame

Healed the pain

Looked at me

And gave me a new name

Beautiful Child

In Focus

It is clear enough to see

a clear vision, 20/20

thank you God

you take the invisible

and create the visible

what the heart hopes for

what the soul craves for

wiping all the smudges off the lens

eyes of the spirit see daylight again

the texture and tones of love

always beautiful

Parallel Egos

“I could not tell you if I loved you the first moment I saw you, or if it was the second or third or fourth. But I remember the first moment I looked at you walking toward me and realized that somehow the rest of the world seemed to vanish when I was with you.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

Act I

I guess love will forever remain a mystery

This potent force, capable of moving us to great feats

and bringing us to tears

It can strip away the facade of misinterpretation

When pit bulls guard our hearts and we are perceived as cold

Only because we do not want our hearts stolen and broken again

To see you, not just look at you, but to see you

I allow myself to become open and let love penetrate through the armor

Stepping into the fires of love, once again

Act II

I find your love to be a universal harp

Delivering harmony to my heart and soul

Our state of grace is a blessing from God

I offer you love without jurisdiction

We stand as one body, parallel egos

Together, under the eyes of heaven

Love being the centering point

Around which our world revolves


Our souls must dance

Our spirits must fly

Our hearts must connect

Our minds must flow in the same direction

And we must be us

Whatever love has blessed us to be together

We must be us
