Departures…

“The story of life is quicker than the wink of an eye, the story of love is hello and goodbye…until we meet again”
― Jimi Hendrix

departures

Can we drag out this goodbye
just a little longer,
stretch it as far as it will go
across the great expanse of time
and turn back the clocks
to yesterday?

Let no words pass between us,
as we stare into a distance of separation,
holding only
soul connections!

In the stillness of memory
we’ll reminisce
the good times.

Unbearable departures
are inevitable,
cluttered with reminders,
noisy departure lounges
of melancholy.

I need the fragrance of this moment to linger
and echo remembrance.
Sweet Nostalgia
is imbued
with sunshine
and impressions
of affection.

Though
some tears
must fall,
“Au revoir”
sounds better
than Goodbye…..

A Sprinkling of joy

“If you cannot get rid of the family skeleton, you may as well make it dance.”
― George Bernard ShawImmaturity

sprinklings of joy

On long beaches,
remembrance holds dear.
Childhood reflections pool,
and draw us into family reunion,
gatherings,
a sense of belonging
to the sacred moments of identity.

The gloominess of cloudy days
dissipates
and the spillage of glistening sunshine
pours over our wounds.

Secret vows become real,
the bone marrow of suffering exposed,
and skies rejoice,
paying homage to our soul journeys
as we move across
the never-ending sands of time!

We return to light-hearted vistas
of acceptance…
and a sprinkling of joy in places we least expect…

Rose-colored

“Look at everything always as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time: Thus is your time on earth filled with glory.”
― Betty SmithA Tree Grows in Brooklyn

rose colored

I have some rose colored glasses
that see through a different lens
the extravagance of nature,
and other-worldly gems!

I highly recommend them
to get one’s mind right,
to enter the mystical
and perch from dizzy heights!
