Years move through
passing moments filled
and the light of a favorite day shines
We linger in the shadows of evening
together rehashing the highlights
of our day apart,
when we come together
sounds beyond our bubble stir
calming the hearts that gather.
In the darkness you lay beside me
your breath deep and peaceful
and I give thanks for this
and every moment we have
and for each year gifted
for you are my love
and I am blessed
A very happy birthday to my hubby Jeff. Forever hugs and smiles and all of my heart you hold, cheers to many many more💜💕💚🎂
We pass the years
blended and turned into new tastes,
experiments with our bounty
we inhale the aromas brought forth,
sweetest concoctions stirred
a loving hand holds a spoon eager,
the bite of life so loved.
The sun living within the colored orbs
we squeeze the essence out of each day given
spices added where needed
and we sup side by each
sipping the cocktail of our love
content in our bowl of this world
together in beauty
we spin our tales with humor and grace,
collecting the nectar with open hands.
Love takes so many forms,
as I juggle limes while walking
trying to ease the bag open
I gaze around at harried faces
and feel so content as I see you before me,
we come together at the intersection
with baskets loaded with the finest things
and we create laughter for the souls before us
realizing that this day always means so much more,
than a rushed pace that usually finds us tired
and the endless thoughts that fall at day’s end,
here in this moment
we take our fill in gratitude and deliver back to the universe
with love in our hearts,
fruit and meats in our baskets,
a feast for a King or Queen
we will partake of our meal over a crowd of pink roses,
thankful for each moment we have
to be here in this time
A Very Happy Anniversary to my beloved and favorite soul in this whole wide world. Farmers market finds in the fridge, Mojitos on tap this eve and some she sells sea scallops for supper (say that five times fast, I dare you) Life is good and each year will only get better ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ Peace and love, K
In the corner of the yard he walks quietly as the sun sets slowly down beyond the horizon. He looks at each tree, every plant that grows in this new place, familiarizing himself with the nuances of the specimens and finally stopping to smell the jasmine that is finally nearing it’s end.
He calls to me then, a hint of excitement tinges his voice, “come and see this, and bring the camera” he says to me and I hurry out to see the sight that is animating him so. Hoping of course that it isn’t a big snake or baby gator back there, I arrive with the camera in hand. There it is before me, a heart shape of the palest green moss growing on a tree that we’ve been looking at each day and night for the last two months now, neither one of us had seen it before and now sitting there plain as day, a heart. “I hope it’s not broken” he says with a laugh, as the trunk bark separates and runs through the lovely green shape. “I’m sure it will be just fine, they make look broken but they always heal” I reply with a smile. We sit each night here in the lanai of our new home, watching the clouds and the sky change, hearing the silent tinkling of the wind chimes as the gentle breeze blows, and listening to the many birds that frequent us with song and merry antics, and we talk of our future, what we want, what we hope for and we feel the peace here that calms us on this new journey.
Now, unexpectedly finding love when least expected. Right in our own back yard.
He has a knack for knowing what makes me smile, what it is that I adore and once again, prince charming comes through….with love of course.
