 I Won’t Leave You

You and I have many dusty roads still to walk together,

and blood red sunrises we have not seen

sitting side by side on a quiet beach.

There are many seashells

not picked up; memories not yet made.

We know the hope of a radiant summer morning,

and the deep peace of midnight stars.

 

We have laughter to remember, tears to brush away;

taking in the scent of rain on the wind and hay in a far off meadow.

In soft December while the snow falls draping the mountains,

we stroll alongside together, you clasping my hand,

as more colors appear…

leaving none behind.

A Walk with the Clouds

DCF 1.0
Let us walk,
along the mountain coast
under clouds light as springtime air.
There are no cares from the pouring rain
that soak our way.

Skies of denim blue
nudged by the sea’s wind
remind us to leave behind
heartache and hurdle.

I take your laughter
and weave it with mine
as the sun warms our backs.

Sun Dancer

From Journey On-a celebration poem for a stretching and dancing in the morning sun:
Sun Dancer

The dawn moon quiets my mysterious wonder
into a deep palette of soft watercolors.
In the concerto of the early morning sun
swinging slowly, twirling in the wind,

I reach to touch the dancing colors
rising within.DSCN2473
