A Precious Soul

Calmly pouring a dab of sugar-water into her hand, I watched as she positioned it under a ray of morning sunlight.

It glistened as I listened to the sound of a faint fluttering, slowly growing stronger.

Soon, a hummingbird appeared, pausing briefly to glance my way before proceeding to drink from her palm, thirsty and trusting.

From a precious soul, precious love emanated from her eyes in sharing and caring for this small, delicate creature.

I’d never seen a bird smile before that day, and I’ll always treasure the beauty in her eyes – a joy in my heart.

Poem of Dreaming

PHOTO CREDIT: modified photo from unsplash.com.

Some may say she’s perfect
She’ll tell you otherwise
Aware that she has faults
There’s no need for disguise

Her shy smile and brown eyes
Each melt my heart away
Plus, an inner beauty
She’s more than just okay

The time to share is now
While in the Spring of life
And were my wish fulfilled
Come Fall, she’d be my wife

Yes, I know I’m dreaming
Though hope to see the light
Thinking of her daily
And wanting what feels right

Of course, a few things would need to change. For starters, it certainly would be nice if she’d remove my name from being blacklisted on her site at WordPress. It would also be charitable if my emails were no longer filtered into her trash bin. And, on occasion, she could use Twitter to read some of the messages & comments I’ve left for her. Perhaps, as an act of goodwill, she might like a single post on my web site…sometime. Lastly, if she would refrain from associating my name with the term ‘devil’ – I think that would be helpful, too. Barring these few exceptions, the future looks bright!!!

Yes, I know I’m dreaming.

Time Together

Inspired by the writing of a friend: poem of husband & wife over time –


It seemed like magic when we met
Emotions we would share
On the table was everything
And with each word was care

To matters of health and sickness
In wealth or poverty
Each felt until death do us part
Was how it had to be

To work things through with compromise
And talk into the night
So when the morning sunlight came
Our time, again, was right

Time sure flies when you’re having fun
Sharing respect and love
By motto of two lives well lived
Our blessing from above
