Look at me Posted on Jul 24, 2011 at 08:33 PM

Yes I know you but do you see me?

Do you see the brilliant mind behind the eyes that shine?

Do you see that there is a tender heart filled up and running over with love?

Do you see a woman who knows herself to be enough?

Do you see a woman fiercely independent yet soft and flexible?

Do you see the confidence hard won?

Do you see the Grace that she can give but never earned?

Do you see?  Would you dare to look?

I think you could if you let down those walls of pain that blind your vision.  Stop trying to hide because

I can see you and I wait patiently.

I know you but... Posted on Jul 16, 2011 at 07:36 PM

I know you!


You are widowed, a father of a small child and you travel overseas.  Usually you land in Ghana, Nigeria or Russia.  You have sent me pictures of you and your kid and of your handsome face and of your laughing good times.


Your story is not as strong as you think.  There are tiny things that don't match up.  Then at last is the Big story - of how you can't get out of the country, how your child needs x, y or z, how you can't get your inheritance check cashed in a foreign country.  And what you don't see is my smiling and laughing AT you.


What YOU don't know is that I am Not stupid nor gullible nor so lonely that I check my brain at the log in of any dating site.  What you don't know is I have strong boundaries and I keep them.  What you don't know is my absolute policy - that I NEVER EVER give nor receive money from men. 


So go ahead and wink...just don't think I don't know you! 


I so know you!

Slow and Easy Posted on Jul 04, 2011 at 07:14 PM

I hear you when you say
You want my full attention and
not some old issue in our way.

It is not you that I am speaking to
when I ask for time or to slow the pace. 
It is my heart that rushed before so
now I wish to listen to it more.

So my pace is not one of baggage
but only a moment to listen
to a heart that hears less savage
and more a word that is true within.

Such an odd game we play




You over there




Me over here




And the gap be what it may.








Such an odd game we play




Me waiting here




Why are you  over there?




And the gap be what it may.








Such an odd game we play




Neither of us moving




Both of us longing




And the gap be what it may.





Dancing Posted on Jun 19, 2011 at 12:15 PM

I see you in a future somewhere time.

The light dances in your eyes and calls me

"Come to my arms sweet one;

Come to dance again and again".


Your strong velvet warmth envelopes

In safety as we find the rhythm

Of life in the dance.  You may lead

and I may follow until it matters not

who leads nor follows because

there is no end nor beginning.


I am filled with your deep song

"Come to my arms sweet one

Come to dance again and again".

as the music drifts in and out of awareness.


On and on we dance until 

We knock at Death's door

As it opens we hear from there

"Come to my arms sweet ones

Come to dance again and again".



Ocean of Leaves Posted on Jun 19, 2011 at 12:00 PM

There is an ocean of leaves

That washes my soul clean.

It drifts inside my window

Each time the unseen wind plays.


I praise the wind

I praise the leaves

But it is the Great Unseen Ocean

That brings me home again.

And So It Goes Posted on Jun 17, 2011 at 11:24 PM

And So It Goes

Billy Joel

In every heart there is a room
A sanctuary safe and strong
To heal the wounds from lovers past
Until a new one comes along
I spoke to you in cautious tones
You answered me with no pretense
And still I feel I said too much
My silence is my self defense

And every time I've held a rose
It seems I only felt the thorns
And so it goes, and so it goes
And so will you soon I suppose

But if my silence made you leave
Then that would be my worst mistake
So I will share this room with you
And you can have this heart to break

And this is why my eyes are closed
It's just as well for all I've seen
And so it goes, and so it goes
And you're the only one who knows

So I would choose to be with you
That's if the choice were mine to make
But you can make decisions too
And you can have this heart to break

And so it goes, and so it goes
And you're the only one who knows

Waiting Posted on Jun 17, 2011 at 10:26 PM

Am I invisible?

Looking at my watch

I see I have so little time left.

Perhaps I shouldn't notice the time?

Perhaps I need to not let my mind wander

To thoughts of  him.

Am I Invisible?

Its been so long waiting to be seen.

I try to still the impatience and it only grows into frustration.

I clear my voice but still

Am I invisible?

I am waiting.......
