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.


#RomanticTuesday: Very Special

“How could I look at you each day and not tell you just how very special you are?”


I do not save words for a rainy day

Your love showers me everyday

So my heart pours out to you

What is to be said

You are once in a lifetime

I am so very thankful it is my lifetime

What you bring to life cannot be replicated

So I cherish who you are in this time

Each day this becomes more concrete

Love can be a great teacher when it is true

I am very attentive when it comes to understanding you

A carousel of wonders circling my heart

Together we experience the ride of our life

Our life, a multitude of moments fitting perfect

How can I look at you each day and not tell you just how very special you are?

Love does not save words for a rainy day

Always. Always, I’ll remember the look in your eyes. Bright life and a guiding light telling me all is good. So I thank you. As big as my heart can expand, I thank you. I do not know darkness but I know what it is to feel blue. I will never forget where I came from and how you wandered through my forest seeking shelter. Hopefully, I built something solid for you. Always, always, I will find comforting light in your eyes and you will find shelter in my soul.

The Light of Thankfulness


Treasures come and go. Some are lost and never found. Some are buried and forgotten. Blessings to the heart that has and the heart that receives. Blessings to the heart that is cherished and the soul that is nourished. If it is but for one moment of one day, let it be as a thousand moments and a thousands. A treasure which will forever be held in the light of thankfulness.

All I Can Say Is…

All I can be is thankful. All I can say is thank you. Reemerging, I never forgot about what is. In the blink of an eye a tear can fall. In the blink of an eye life has breath and then it has none. Time is just too damn short. All I can be is thankful. All I can say is thank you.

I am grateful and humble. I am sometimes and sometimes I am not. I am a small flame within a larger context of meaning. I am here for now and I am grateful and humble.

For What Is

The soft glow of lantern lights

Warms the night’s ambiance 

The splendor of your light glows in my eyes

Reflections of lullabies we sang dance in the night air

While dreams we met in dance around in our hearts

A defining moment of oneness

Can we afford such happiness?

It is not ours to buy or sell

It is a gift

Gifted to us long before the first glance

Long before the first brush of our souls

As our eyes connect, there is thankfulness

Full awareness of what is

And we give all of ourselves to this night, to this moment

For what is
