Built for you

I drafted a circle in the sand
digging deeper and deeper
waiting for the tide to shift,
to change and move
filling the indent
pooling and swirling
reflections of clouded skies
and just a hint of sunlight
whispering through.
A moat around the castle,
grains of sand built up and smoothed
circles upon circles rising
backdrop like a real life play
no curtains to hide
just pieces of structures standing strong,
built to withstand this life.
I imagined it for you
cast of dreams and beauty and words
bit by lovely bit pieced together
hand crafted with the wisdom and spirit
that fills to overflowing,
and I gave you a key
to unlock the door to the magic
yours whenever needed
and the coffers are filled
with all of the needs
priceless things indeed
to carry you through
I give this to you
with a special hope that you see
how much you mean to me,
where you are and where you’ll be
just close your eyes and drift away
to castles by the sea
and I’ll meet you there
where the horizon finds the blue
and slips away to unlock the stars
above our heads in their splendor
guiding us home.

Where do…

All the cowboys,

riding the line all the way down

taking it where it leads,

living it as only they can.

Sleeping bags tucked and memories,

music hangs on evenings air

stars sparkle just a bit brighter tonight

as rhinestones join the game,

another empty space in heaven

filled with song.

Suffering at its end as the train rolls by,

childhood vinyl held in trembling hands

not to mar the fresh new smell

the 70’s in the mind alive and well.

But I am blessed for I can recall

and still to this day sing,

for another cowboy flying high

as peace to him now this day will bring.

“And I need you more than want you,
And I want you for all time
And the Wichita lineman is still on the line”  (4/22/1936-8/8/2017) Glen Campbell

Ride that line Glen, follow it as far as only you can, I’ll still be listening on the wire with a reminiscent tear in my eye. Infinite day, Infinite life.

Days end-New beginnings

We ramble on,

amble on in our moment

searching for the cosmic song

rhythmic waves washing in and out

calling to us like children

the universal chord pulls

moving towards the light beyond

fresh steps leaving tiny prints behind

as we slip into the new world waiting,

the glimmer of a fading sun shines for its pupils

learning to follow the beat of the world

one step at a time we learn

then picking up pace the amble becomes a marathon,

meet you there where the lacy foam waits

on the edge of our forever,

I’ll be waiting wide-eyed

with a gentle smile as we swim

towards tomorrow,

so alive.
