just missed my train

sometimes.. just missing your train is a good thing
emptier
smiling faces,
hints of release and relief are in the air,
when the doors open,
there’s space
room to movephoto
breathe…

have a seat
smile at a stranger
pretend the world’s alright

Shalom To A Year – Farewell

in the wake of a year.
rushing to finish, to believe there is a future,
starting… new

late-blooming trees,
tired, birthing nature,
paws, hooves, scales, and feathers

summer fades.
autumn shows with remarkable beauty …
ending in loss

darkness comes closer to light,
as night comes sooner

the moon tosses the sun into a deeper, longer sleep,
while our shadows walk beside us …
so much earlier in the day

silk

‘silk –  fine threads of fibre often woven into cocoons for protection by silkworms.   
 luxurious, resilient and, extremely strong’.

love, a precious strand of silk, weaves through our lives binding hearts together

vulnerable, in the shadow if it’s strength,
we strive to keep it weaving all the time.

 

New Moon #fridayfling

A New Moon occurs when the Moon and the Sun are in the same Sign of the Zodiac. The Sun lights up the back of the Moon, making it unable, for us, (down here on earth), to see it.

NewMoon

 

It is the phase of the Moon to begin new projects, make important phones calls, write-up new proposals, and, initiate new endeavours.

 

Thought you’d get up early.
Flit the day away.

Sneak away,
before the effects of
Friday’s new moon,
got you movin’and shakin,’
starting that thing you wanted to do,
calling those guys you wanted meet,
signing off on that sale you made,
before reading it … just one more time.

But,  you (returned).
Snuggled back into bed.
Chased away the blues,
with a coffee instead.

Tossing and turning, the tides pulled you out,
pushed you back in again.
Sweeping through your thoughts,
each time, bringing clarity to the moment,
when the sun would set,
the moon would peak,
and you would start your day.

Hot

Hot headed
hot tamale
hot under the collar.
Hot and cold
…you are to me.

Hot as Hades
hot ticket
hot property… (you are).
I’d like to own you

Whew, it’s getting hot in here
is it my hormones… or the beer?

No, I think it’s all this heat,
when you are here, fans can’t compete
with all the cheering and the screams,
that stir the coals, that burn so deep,
reminding that I’m hot for you.
