Love October...

Love October...LOVE driving through autumn colored hills,trees aglowas the last of their summer greens surrenderto the deep reds, golden yellowsand fiery oranges of fall,the sound of laughter that comes spilling across the fields,as giggling children, their noses and fingertips pink and cold,bob for apples and tumble onto hayrides,whispering excitedly about Halloween costumesand which pumpkins to pick for carving this year!Love October...LOVE the smokey smell of sugaras marshmallows hiss and…See More

How do we go home from here?

So.She was the now,in your place.She, laughing, talking, busy.You, unprepared,stopped breathing for a momentthen, smiling, listened.Focus now,short colorful postcards from her ideal life,witty anecdotes,"everyone is fine!"(read betweeen the lines,she has survived without you!)interrupted by the ghostsof memories in your headthat you have not shed,the pain, the chaos, the jagged edges of a shared past,your heart like splintered glass,hide behind the mask,and the baggage you checked…See More

Roots and Wings

I whispered your name to my Angelsand asked, that they keep you in their carebecause I truly cherish you,for you are a treasure, rare.I knew they'd guard you gentlyand wrap you in their wings.And as you walk through your world,that they'd keep you safe for me.When nights are dark and coldand you feel all alone,I asked that they guide you to my heartand light your way back home.And "Until then", I asked them,"please help me with the waiting",till you come back to find the onewho gave you…See More

Love October...

LOVE driving through autumn colored hills,

trees aglow

as the last of their summer greens surrender

to the deep reds, golden yellows…

How do we go home from here?


She was there....

in the now,

in your place.

She, laughing, talking, busy.

You, unprepared,

stopped breathing for a moment

then, smiling, listened.

Focus now,

short colorful postcards from her ideal life,

witty anecdotes,…

Heaven Happened Here.

The keys have been exchanged.

The bits and pieces of our life,

our history

and our junk,

all are thrown into a box and

loaded in the trunk.

Now spent, exhausted,

heads downcast

we stumble from

our splintered past,

memories pave our sad retreat

from shattered promises and broken dreams

Not ours the picture perfect postcards

and sepia tinted kodachromes.

No! Ghosts of love and laughter

now walk the… Continue

So did you think

of me love,

was I in your dreams


did you smile

sweet recognition

as I lay gently

by your side?

Did you float

into my arms love,


in sweet embrace,

did you sigh

exquisite rapture,

passion's dew

upon your face?

Then love

did you surrender

to your hunger

and to mine,

and in your dreams

tonight love,

did our hearts and… Continue

Greetings Roberta, hope you are well, I am from Palm Desert, CA not too far from you! I do a little writing on to promote my eBooks, so that might be an avenue to pursue or check out? Who knows?
