Contemplations On a "Summered" Night

[You are loved]

Does anyone really know what that means anymore? Seems we throw that word out there without any thought for circumstance or consequence. In some cases, others find it difficult to utter at all. And if we do say those words we should most definitely mean them. Seems a shame that at times we cannot live our lives with arms wide open. Nonetheless, I plan to try.

Sometimes my heart feels as if it were overflowing and I wish to tell others just what light they have brought into my life, but fear (as others do) the openness that may lead them away. Who would have have thought I would be here, right now, with so much love to give?

I have always believed that you should show your heart to friends and such. I would never want someone that I cared for (in even the smallest amount) to walk without knowing just how fabulous they are. I suppose that is why I simply let the words fall from my lips. If I am touched, be sure that they know.

If something or someone moves me I want them to feel the strength of this heart. I wish to share with the world what I see through my eyes. I hope that whatever it is that I share will make an impact on someone else as it had me.

A smile is contagious, we really should pass it on. Indeed, a child-like simplicity that can only make the "Heartlight" shine even brighter.

Never waste a second wishing the words you felt so sweetly had not tangled on the tongue. Tell (or show) your loved ones and friends exactly what they mean to you...

... for moments pass quickly and once they are gone, they are gone.

The Kiss

A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous. -Ingrid Bergman

Breaking Benjamin

Before you interpret this, I must divulge to you
all that is clandestine: his voice, a garden
always it exists in neat rows, lexis in the lungful
of forget-me-nots, the intricate identifiers such as skin,
accent, flesh; inevitably imitate events that slowly
pull faces as I pass the mirror.
& I spend seasons sleepless on his face, in the silhouette
of his body long after he’s laid it down. I scatter flowers
in breath--a deeper blue in the cherry, where I draw
his chest to a pause, carry him to the scents, each
so delicately decorated in the softness of rivers that utter
devotion. But his mouth is heavy. Indeed, I am speaking
of the tongue, of the nether sea, the vortex
in its garrote--no exit, a void, a lilac snapped shut.
& I cannot deliver. I lift his snowy lids, release the colors
into the sky, where simplicity permeates the air, & his lips
part affectionate, wet. I kiss his throat to pursue a sole
riposte, feel a constriction that tugs my hand, pulls me
back as the night that hangs nervous in the thickets.


You Are Love

You are love...

(I kissed your lips this morning and picked a flower from a garden before it ever grew. I carried the flower to a pergola, colorful in the hours that bond us.)

There are night skies as I write, but I can only see sapphire. There are shores in the remoteness that we would walk if there now--we would breeze past the wintered curtains that insist on a chill, (or a feeling that snow has crept into the pane).

I press your poems to my face and breath your name.

And like your name, my ears are still submerged in the continuous sea of your voice like sand or shells washed into the sun-–every now and then pushed into the deep only to rise once more.

Your voice a stellar instrument, loving sounds or syllables that flood my flesh like a gentle rain. I want to be the cup that you sip from, the paper you write your most famous lines upon.

I long to be the hands that you gather snow in.

And if I cannot be your hands, I will take them, kiss them and say a prayer into the wind. I will gift you with a heart true above the reverberations of infinite butterfly flurry and sigh.

What I feel, sitting here is how deeply, bodily inscribed you are within me. All of my desire is for you, for you as who you are, here.

What you do to me emotionally and physically is totally unshakable.

You are love.

Beauty is an experience

(A photograph that I shot during a beautiful Spring day.)

"Sometimes we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes.
We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today’s possibility under
tomorrow’s rug until we can’t anymore. Until we finally understand for ourselves.

That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping, and even the biggest failure, even the worst, beats the heck out of never trying."

Stefan and I enjoy sitting outside, tasting fabulous breads. I adore their home made pizza, as well!

Lazy Sunday

We took the day and went crabbing, it was a lot of fun. I am actually pretty good, too! As long as I do not have to touch the bait, touch the crab, reel in anything or eat it, I am probably the best mate you can have on such an adventure! ;)
