Greek Salad For Two

"Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead" ~Oscar Wilde     Don’t like tomatoes,she offered,never have;strange that,he repliedas he casually tumbled into hersky blue eyes.Thinly disguised intentionstelegraphed across the table;sliding an olive to the side,and with Retsina on her tongueshe inhales him in one glance.Chronologically distantbut hearts [...]

Once Upon A Time

 “Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls”   ~Joseph Campbell Her name, the same as yoursfloods my cellophane heartwith distant but still pulsating memories of you.The perfect professional’s wifechildren and social engagements,appearances to maintaina busy life,at times frenetic,hamster wheel personified.Requirements for comfort where lines between want and needare blurred;with the [...]

Philanthropist Denied

Did We Just Have A Moment?

 "The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love and to let it come in" ~Morrie Schwartz Somewhere between dairy and produceyou discovered the freshness of desire;after the Brie and before the cilantro,you felt the stirring.You weren’t looking, but still you saw…that glance,lasting one nano-second too longto qualify for casual acceptance.Between [...]

Singular, Longing For Plural (Cayja Vu Part 4)

 Tamarinds and Casuarinas conspire to sway me from this heaviness.  Pervasivenessstealing from me my breath,leaving me,just leaving me. Cayman sunshine warms the wind while wood chimes sing to screaming parrotsmasking the air with playful banter,whilst my heart to pain submits. How can something feel so right, and yet still feel so wrong. Tranquil conversations belie the rip tides [...]
