Wedding Gift Mine

Brushing winter

Wilderness inclined
Lone wolf
Snuggling home mine

A bow wrapped round
Shiny knight tall
On the doorstep
Intention full call

Hand extended
Taken eyes wide
Wedding gift brilliant
Wolf now bride

This week's prompt of Lost and Found made me think of how grateful I am that my husband found me. I thank God every day for him. We had dated years ago a handful of times and then faded apart. Throughout the years we dated others. At each end my now hubby would think of me and the connection we had. Eventually he looked me the exact moment I told God that I was done with dating and searching. And unless Mr. Right showed up on my doorstep with a bow I was having none of it. Hubby is more than I asked for and I am blessed by him every day.

Magic Knowing

Swell, swoon, swirl
My toes in Arizona...Clouds make the best sunset
Holding her garments high
Blind meeting
Birthday gift
Christmas stocking
Magic knowing
Mind echos Yes 
On tongue's tip

Midnight, New Year
First kiss
Fire place and works
Flame to ember
Steady glow
Snow and angels
Magic knowing
Sunset in her pocket
On tongue's voice

This is a repeat of one I did...gosh almost 4 years ago. Was reminded of it by Poetry Jam's prompt of sunset. I love sunsets and if I could I would carry one in my pocket so I could look at it whenever I fancied.

The Birds and The Bees

And the bees
Most definitely
Their knees

Such habits
As those dear
Little rabbits

Be fruitful and multiply

No Barriers

You know me
Better than
The world sees me.
My substance,
Yet unformed.

Confession of a soul
Read before written.
Pointless to hide
What can't be hidden.

What Do I Have to Write About?

It's pretty obvious that I enjoy writing. It's also pretty obvious that I have been ignoring my blog.

I have been writing. Writing for pay and for the business. Just not writing what I want to write. Which leads to the question: What do I have to write about?

I have a lot to say, but what do I want to say? What do I want to put out into the digital abyss in the hopes that it resonates with someone, anyone? And what do I want to safeguard? I mean, much does the world need to know about me?

I've been pondering this for about year now. And I guess I've come up with the conclusion that it doesn't matter. I'm just going to write for the sake of writing. Life is a big enough adventure with lots of writing foder.

Not a mirror reflecting
But a woman projecting
I'm defending endangered pleasures
