Reason to Smile

He smiles 
to himself 

remembering the 
moments shared  

his smile reflects 
a lifetime 
of laughter & tears 
pleasure and pain 

his skin remembers
her touch
 
his soul remembers
her love

although she's gone 
nothing 
can take away 
the reason 
for his smile

When I Dream

When
I Dream
It's About You
always has been just
You 

No
other person
could ever be
my one and only 
Love

Reprised-Eternally Bound

The moon whispers 
his secrets
only to the sea

the sea rushes
to him
faint with passion

surging against the shore
reaching for her love

the moon blushes darker
swollen with desire

these lovers
distant lovers

each
never to caress
the other

yet
eternally bound

*This is an older piece of mine that I came across and
decided to reprise it. It's one I've always really
liked. The idea of the moon and the sea in love with
each other but never being able to touch.

When Dreams End

*By Penny Wilson And Charles Robert Lindholm

Deep asleep 
and dreaming 

The vision 
of your face 

Came to me 
last night 

With sweet lips smiling 
and your eyes sparkling

You came to         
hold my hand                   
and walk with me
down memory lane     

I felt your touch 
and saw our love  

I can't wait until
the dreams end
and we can be 
together again

Dancing with the angels

where we have a 
never ending future
to share

#NaPoWriMo-Day 30-Directions to My Heart

Follow the pathway along my yesterdays. Take a left just past my shortcomings. Take no heed of these and continue. The path will then turn treacherous, dark and vast. At times you will see pitfalls, things hidden from view that may come to light later in your journey. Stay the course.  If you persist, you will come to a valley that expands out to the horizon. This valley is filled with light and laughter, compassion, and wisdom. It seeks your light. This valley gives from its depths and expects the same from you. Followed precisely, these are the directions to my heart. From here you can see your tomorrow. And mine.

*Day 30 of NaPoWriMo! Finally!  While most of the prompts on NaPoWriMo’s website were not of much help to me, I did find this one today that seemed to work for me.  The prompt said to write a poem giving directions to someplace real or imagined.  I’m glad that I participated.  It got me back into my writing groove.  Thank you for following along!
