Your Touch Lingers

Take a moment to notice when you're happy, and then tell yourself "if this isn't nice, I don’t know what is." ~ Kurt Vonnegut Like heat seeking missilesthe words you spoke found my mind.softly...I close my eyeshands touchingever so lightly,with humble respect,electric nevertheless.Luscious ecstasyof discovery;tentative fingertips connecting,exploring,opening totender palming.Arms held wide pulled in closestaying centered,connection intact.Music segues to [...]

I’m Hoping That You Fell

Letting Go: “In practice there is always the dance between feeling the truth of our suffering and letting go of it, not in a dismissive way but in a way that honors it”.Was it disappointments heaped upon your platethat became too muchfor you to shoulder?Had angry clouds obscured your sight,stopped the beamfrom finding you?Did the tether stop [...]

A Field In Summer Fallow

I know people, I know towns, farms, hills and rivers and rocks, I know how the sun at sunset in autumn falls on the side of a certain plow-land in the hills; but what is the sense of giving a boundary to all that, of giving a name and ceasing to love where the name ceases to apply?~ [...]

That afternoon while we were gathered in the yard all [...]

This Is Love Forever

Holding hands with my mother fading embers in my father’s eyes become a flicker once more.   Few words spoken they would be superfluous.   Wordless dialogue but heartfelt exchange echoes through this chamber at the threshold of his exit door.   Fifty-four years traversing, journeying together, spawning profound understandings of complex and deep simplicity.
