REBLOG:  Please don’t miss Anita’s beautiful poem. ❤

Cold Frost white morning I slip my head beneath my duvet No way are my feet moving From this warm cover Today I stay hidden from the world To dream of things to come A future made of stardust With bright green jewels A land where you leave a wish Knowing it will come […]

My Box of Words


My box of words 
is hoarded 
selfishly. 

Choosing and stockpiling 
each one 
carefully. 

I take inventory. 

I tuck them away 
in my little treasure box 
lined with memories 
tears 
and laughter. 

Yesterday's words 
are tinged 
aging and gnarled 
the edges curling. 

Today's words 
fat 
filled with promise. 

Choosing the right ones 
is a challenging 
feat 
not always accomplished 
with elegance.

https://thereluctantpoetweb.wordpress.com/

Welcome to another post of my Friday Favorites!  I’m sorry that I skipped last Friday, but with being smack dab in the middle of the holidays, I suspect you understand.  My goal, each Friday, is to bring you a little information about a Favorite Blogger of mine.  Check them out and they may just become a favorite of yours too!

Chuck, at The Reluctant Poet is a favorite blogger of mine for several reasons.  The reason that I originally connected with Chuck is because he writes some of the most amazing and beautifully romantic poetry!  THIS  is an example of what I mean.  Be sure to browse thru Chuck’s archives, you’ll find a treasure trove from a talented poet!

Chill #writephoto


You throw 
the words 
from your lips 
to land in the 
chill 
air between us.  

The chill 
outlasts 
the flame 
we once shared.

Today Was Enough


 

The turntable 
sang of
freedom 
and exploration  

Summer skies 
were flavored 
with Strawberry Hill 

A prelude 
to easy nights
and Purple Haze  

Never thinking
of tomorrow  

Today was enough

Memories of Another Time


My fingertips 
find their way 

Pulling my heart 
beyond the keyboard  

Across the years 
through the memories 

The visions
behind my eyelids

Another time 
expressed 

A smear 
on crisp white pages

Favorites Friday-Walt’s Writings


Welcome to Friday Favorites! Each Friday, I will share with you a little about one of my favorite blogs/blogger.  This week I would like to tell you about Walt Page.

Walt’s blog, is filled with beautiful poetry and other writings that will be sure to melt your heart and tug at your heartstrings.

Walt is married to (if you read the way he writes about her) the love of his life.   His poetry is filled with expressions of his love for his wife and the life they have made for each other.  THIS is an example of such beauty.

Walt is a bit of a hippy (I say that with love, Walt) and was a drummer in a rock band at one time.

Walt now lives in the country with his beloved wife, their dogs, horses and a quiet country life that he treasures.  Some of his writings include these loves.

Be sure to spend some time on Walt’s Blog, browsing through his posts.  You’ll be glad that you did and glad to connect with Walt.  He’s a treasure.
