Whether true love, love stories, or “Hallmark”, I will always write about the highs and lows of this “REAL” category…

…It’s one of the ones I have the most fun with ;)….

Heart to Heart II

From 2004, this piece starts as the original Heart to Heart ends….for me as a writer I often visit my past, it helps me to understand my present and prepare me  for my future…I hope you enjoy….



I stopped asking my heart questions,
just listened to what it said —
It whispered into my soul…

          It’s 5 a.m., do you know where your heart is at?


It is in your eyes
I saw its reflection as I went searching for a place to hide

It lives in the circle of your arms
where my defenses fled as you kept me from harm

It is in your hands
As your gentle embrace helps me to understand

It radiates in your smile
that starts at the corner of your mouth and tarries there awhile

It is in your voice
For I hear its whispering beat as your words rejoice

It breathes within a deep sigh
that meets eternity as it gently melds with my reply

It is on your lips
Its taste lingers on after each kiss

It leaves a trail to follow
through yesterday, today and tomorrow

It is in the silence of your words
that speak to my soul and are always heard

It rests within your world
Where dreams and truth forever swirl

It is in everything you do
I felt its presence right from the start

A piece of my heart is within you
No matter the distance or time we are apart….

St. Valentine’s Day

…Just a few “Odes to love”, A couple of my favorites for Valentine’s Day…….;)


Whenever I think of Valentine’s Day I think of Charlie Brown and….


The Little Red Haired Girl


I hid beneath your footsteps
I walked with you the miles
Hoping that the path you chose
Would pass through my turnstile

I sewed myself your shadow
Just to follow you unseen
Dancing round your body
Like a porcelain figurine

I brushed against you gently
Like the cobwebs hanging low
For just a chance to touch you
So afraid to let you know

I stood beside my mailbox
With this poem I wrote for you
Hoping that this valentine’s
You would send your heart so true

Again my box is empty
So my heart feels no relief
With my poem stuffed in my pocket
I hang my head, “Good Grief”



Pieces of me


A gentle cool breeze
Fell light upon my ear
Nourishing a dying rose
With incidental tears

Once thought dead to me
Ones cast away with fear
Plunging onto jagged rock
Now clouds of hope appear


Sometimes renders
Visions clearly seen
Words of understanding
Pirouette on what they mean

Upon fragile ice
I step with caution’s heed
So’s not to drown in sorrow
When air is what I need


Befall us
Unsure of what to feel
Not wanting the uncertainties
No matter their appeal

Must come slowly
Turned within a potter’s hand
A masterpiece before us
After firing will stand


I wish
I were love’s mason
I would mend your tragedy
And fill your gaps of emptiness
With little bits of me

I would
Sew a smile on your face
If handy with the thread
But a kiss is all I offer
And a brighter road ahead………………



As Simple As We…


The things that I look for
The way that I see
The hope that I feel
Are as simple as me

The peace in my heart
Seems long overdue
The dreams that I have
Are as simple as you

I gaze at the stars
I’m hoping to find
Something so real
That I can call mine

I gaze in your eyes
I need nothing more
The warmth that I feel
Is definably yours

As simple as you
As simple as me
Love can be simple
As simple as we…..





If I were the words,
Your thoughts, I would choose.
I as your poet,
You as my muse.

A dusty old inkwell
Or simple blank key
Until your touch
Awakened me.

My pages dispelled,
Would scatter about,
If not for your love
To bind them throughout.

You are the leaf
Of silky thin lace
So I don’t lose track,
Never losing my place.

If I had a verse
To make it begin,
I’d write out each chapter
So the story wouldn’t end.

From cover to cover,
Our souls would engage,
Forever rewriting
Without a last page….



Comment pourrais je tu oublier?


How could I forget you?

Your name is etched
on every grain of sand
In every desert

Your scent
Swallows the winter
To breathe the spring flowers

Your eyes
Hold captive
The sun and moon
From the time they are opened
Until sleep closes them for the night
When your dreams
Carry me away with them

How could I forget you
When nature
Gives me the beauty of the wisteria
The trees whisper your song
To the robins

And life reaches down to hold us
In its hands…



Hearts, Home, and Rainbows


It wasn’t the fact that
I didn’t have a heart.
Locked in
a protective coating
of tin, as it was.

Finding feelings
in my head was much
like looking for
Golden Thimbles
in a mountain of straw.

It wasn’t so much
the Heart or Brain
that was missing,
it was the Courage.
The Courage to love…

Somewhere between

Rainbow colors fading
into a black, white
and gray

Lost, far from home,
that Love was waiting
for Courage.

As you gave me
to open my heart,
find the feelings
deep, in the straw.

I will give you
Knowing that
If you Believe,

Just close your eyes…

Dream of home,
Click your heels together
three times and know:

Here, I will be waiting,
in a multicolored Kansas
at a place called Home —
For You
For Love


For those Ruby Red Slippers….

Just maybe, God created Earth
Because He was lonely
For not a more beautiful Lady
Will you ever see…


I belong to the earth
Much more than ashes and dust
I live in her sunrise
I sleep in her night
She teaches me beauty
With heart and with sight

I belong to the earth
She’s aware of my every step
Sometimes, she will guide me
Sometimes, I will lead
Or just sharing the moment
Reminds me I’m free

I belong to the earth
She’s all that I need

I belong to the earth
I am part of her seed

My Angel

I had a dream the other night

An angel kissed my cheek

Ever softly

Drawing me

Into                Her heart

My soul to keep.


The majesty of heaven

Reflected in her eyes

They held me                  transcendentally

I felt my spirit start to fly.


That was when she touched me

Reached up to take my hand

Gently                Pulling

back to earth

She lay me down

Into                 The sand.


Then speaking        like a lullaby,

“ I will make love to you”

Becoming one


Two raindrops        form a pool.


Her golden hair lay tasseled

I was to paralyzed to see

Her tangled

Sensuous, Beauty

Simply             overpowered me.


So I lay    Back

on my pillow

Surrendered to her will

She        took        control

Fire      without


Left a smoldering       Chill.


We became    


Breathing in         Each other

Drinking of


Swimming the oceans

Of          one      another.


Then I woke

In the light of      Morning


In         Your      Arms

In        Your      Dreams

Sharing as one


                    My Angel.

Something Simple

Love is just a moment
Love is eternity
Love is just a wooden ship
Love is the deep blue sea


Love can be a  steel door
Love is a single key
Love will keep you locked inside
Love may set you free


Love may be for many
Love may be for one
Love may test the sands of time
Love may come undone


Love may be so simple
Love can be complex
Love can come from deep within
Love can just be sex


Love is what we feel
Love is who we touch
Love can be the words we hear
Love is in the hush


Love can be a whisper
Love can scream out loud
Love can be embarrassing
Love can make us proud


Love may tear us all apart
Love will make us whole
Love may steal us far away
Love will bring us home


Love may sometimes lie to us
Love can be so true
Love can say “I’ll never”
Love can say “I do”

If Only For The Moment


Your love is just a whisper,
a whisper in the wind.
Will it always be there,
time and time again?

Your love is just a shadow,
a shadow in the night.
If I try to capture it,
will it vanish from my sight?

If only for the moment,
I could share my dreams with you,
your head upon my shoulder,
embrace the whole night through.

If only for the moment,
I would be the one you see.
If only for a moment,
I was someone else but me.

Your love is like a penny
you toss into a well.
I’ll wonder ‘bout the wish you made,
though you will never tell.

Your love, it’s like a rainbow
that streaks across the sky.
Its beauty lasts for moments,
the memories last for life.

If only for the moment,
we danced beneath the stars,
kissed away the moonlight,
you safe within my arms.

If only for the moment,
my love would set you free.
If only for a moment,
I was someone else but me.

Twilight Love


In my mind I love to trace
All the lines upon your face,
All the smiles that have passed those lips of yours.
All the sorrow and the pain,
But we’d do it all again
As our paint by number years
Go rolling by.

In the twilight of our life,
Still you are my wife:
I wouldn’t change a thing, not even if I could.
Some people wonder how
Our love could last till now,
As we step into tomorrow,
One more time.

There’s really no surprise in
It takes a lot of compromisin’–
A lot of hanging on and
A lot more letting go.
A love as strong today
As it was just yesterday,
We never ran too fast
Or never walked too slow.

I still hold your hand in mine,
You still bring me bright sunshine
I still feel your love; still feel the way it glows.
Surrendered, never lost,
Together at all cost—
The hard roads traveled down were
Side by side.

All the troubles we’ve been through,
I’m glad that I had you–
You gave me strength you gave me hope to carry on.
When it’s done and said,
The tears that we both shed
Could never drown the joy
Felt deep inside.

There’s really no surprise in
It takes a lot of compromisin’–
A lot of “SHMILY” traces
Written in the dust.
The best gift received from you
Was when you said, “I do.”
We always held on tight
Without ever letting go…..
