Seeking Comfort

A pre-winter chill
overtakes the northern skies,
and I take comfort
in his embrace, creating
a comfort warmed by pure love.


Wednesday, October 30, 2013


There is a chill
in the air

As I walk down
the path

I've taken many
times before.

The path is
worn and beaten,

Imprinted with

It's time for me
to venture on

A new path,
fresh with possibility.


Wednesday, October 9, 2013


Some days I feel
Restraints being placed
on my soul,
Criticisms and negative words
burning my spirit like
Lashes, struck repeatedly
against my soul,
Relentless, cruel.
Just when I can't
bear it any longer,
I call out to you,
praying that
you will hear me.

As the setting sun
paints shades of orange across
darkening skies, I
think about the sudden turns
my precious life has taken.


Saturday, September 7, 2013


I spend
Several hours
Alone with thoughts and dreams
Of a calmer mindset, reaching

Don't Let Go

Don't ever let go of
the thread.

Even when life
takes away

What you held close
for so long,

You never let go 
of that thread.

Even when your trust
is betrayed,

When the ones you
believed in

Weaves a web 
of deceit,

You never let go
of that thread.

Hold on for dear life,
since this sacred thread

Which is now frayed
is a path to more

Intricate stories to come,
adding another layer

To your evolving
life journey.

You never let go
of that thread.

**Inspired by 'The Way It Is' by William Stafford**

I see promise
all around me,

Rising like a bud
breaking through dirt,

It grows slowly,
steadily, until

It shoots up
with firm quickness.

I see this as 
I prepare for

My next step,
and ready myself

For the growth
that is to come.

your life with mine
is such a joyous act.
Our lives blend in such harmony,

When the place you've once
called sanctuary

Falls into great

When the place you've once
considered a haven

Splinters and fails
from broken promises,

All that you can do
is mourn,

So you grieve for
the peace once shared,

Peace that will never again
emerge from that space,

Then after you've grieved,
after all the tears are shed,

You take a deep breath,
pull yourself together,

And continue on your
journey once again.


Sunday, July 21, 2013


You are
never too far
from my soul, holding me
close when I desperately need

The slow,
sweltering heat

concrete jungle, as everyone

of shock and awe upon
realizing that he still does not

Some days
the feelings cloud
my head like a harsh storm,
and I wonder when the sorrow
will end.

Fractured Ties

As I
attempt to fix
fractured ties, I keep in
mind that there are hidden layers
to mend.

World of Dreams

The song of sleep
beckons us into

The world of dreams,
and our wishes come

To life...secret desires,
silenced by uncertainty,

Are spoken without fear...
locations once visited

Years past now stand
before us, symbolic

Pieces of a puzzle
we yearn to solve

In our waking lives...
the world of dreams

Invite us to explore
our journeys thus far,

So we may travel
through our days

More aware, without

The air hangs hot and
sticky on our skin, clinging
onto our bodies.


One Year Later

One year
later I am
aware of my life as
a free woman, moving forward,

The Answer

Around the corner
rests the answer to troubles
dwelling in my mind. 


Wednesday, June 19, 2013


My soul is awakened
by your gaze,

And I get drawn
into your embrace,

My desire ignited
with each gentle kiss,

Every caress given
making me aware

Of our unwavering
love for one another.

Grains of Sand

Life flows like grains of
sand, its beauty flowing through
my fingers with ease,
countless memories carried
away by the changing wind.

Storied Path

The long, storied path
tells its own intricate tale
as I take each step,
footprints left behind standing
for another goal achieved.


Tuesday, April 23, 2013


I awaken to
a life filled with promise and
growth, new beginnings
just waiting to be lived, my
soul enlivened by your smile.

Some Days

Some days I am at peace,
assured of my choices in life.

Other days I am in doubt,
troubled by what is to come.

During these moments,
I take a moment

To stop and breathe,
to meditate on my next move,

Before I can move forward
once more, feeling calm,

Rested, at peace.


Monday, April 8, 2013


I gaze at the stars
shining clearly in the sky,
its pattern of lights
splashed across the dark canvas,
an elaborate painting.

At Last

April's warm climate
gently pushes out winter's 
remaining cold wisps,
a sign that Spring is at last 
ready to take hold once more.


Tuesday, April 2, 2013


The crossroads stand before me
once again, each direction

Inviting, yet filled with such
questions that I am afraid

To answer: Which path should I
take in my life journey?

Where is my true home in
a life in transition?

Should I continue in this
new land, walking in doubt?

Should I return home where things
are familiar, yet masked in doubt?

Is my true calling in the
Island of Many Hills?

Do I follow the path west,
into the Garden State?

Both directions are lovely,
vast, yet cloaked in the unknown.

I stand at the crossroads once
more. Where do I go now?

Sands of Time

We sift through
the sands of time,

Marveling at how
it flows so easily.

It's precious to value
each moment,

Each grain embodying
a moment of our lives.

We must not allow it
to slip through our fingers

As the winds of change
alter our journeys.

Daily Tide

Life is 
always changing 
like the shifting tides, our
events swelling and subsiding

since we reconnected,
a friendship blossoming into

Waiting for Spring

A new season is here,
and the Earth readies

Herself for sweet
awakening, the snow

Melting into soil,
providing nourishment

For budding flowers;
they bide their time

Until the chill subsides,
as Winter bids

A final goodbye to
our bustling city,

Allowing Spring to
finally take hold.

I struggle to find
a way to the light,

but I discover that
the search is more

difficult than I

I use the broom
to sweep the demons

Away from my 
worried heart, yet

They regenerate
just as quickly,

Needling and 
prodding my soul.

Making me aware
of their presence

Even greater.

Life's Tapestry

Our voices speak in
harmony, our words woven
together to make
the rich tapestry of life,
rich in culture and content.


Thursday, March 7, 2013

My Path

My path is richly
paved with encouraging words,
pushing me to strive
for my dreams, never stopping
until I have reached my goal.


Wednesday, March 6, 2013


Distance separates 
us, yet our feelings stay strong.
The bond always holds.


Tuesday, March 5, 2013


You showed
me happiness
when my outlook on life
was dark, your warmth guiding me toward
the light.

Saving Yourself

Love again the stranger
that was yourself.

Reach out to that person
with the faraway gaze,

Seemingly searching for
something unattainable,

Not realizing that
the answer rests within her soul.

Care for that person
who's lost her way,

Guide her toward finding
the key to her heart,

Encourage her to unlock it
so that she may know herself

Once more.

Distant Days

When things
seem so distant,
I reach out to dear friends,
for I turn to them when life seems
so bleak.


Tuesday, February 19, 2013


The shine in your eyes
glow from miles away, a sign
that you are moving
forward with your journey, not
letting the past hold you back.


Tuesday, February 12, 2013


We continue to
dream and share despite distance.
You bring me sweet peace.


Monday, February 11, 2013

Peaceful Day

I take comfort 
in your presence

As we enjoy each
other's company 

On a peaceful day,
sharing stories and

Laughter as the
hours pass, 

Feeling at peace 
in your embrace.

Precious Moments

I lie awake
in serenity,

Leaving my fears
and doubts 

To rest for the moment,
sharing thoughts and 

Dreams with special friends
and companions.

I long for these
moments to last forever.


Monday, February 4, 2013


My heart feels content
whenever we talk to each
other. Sweet relief
comes to mind with every warm
thought. My soul feels at rest.


Friday, February 1, 2013

Speak to Me

Your words speak to my
soul very sweetly, calling
to my heart in such
a loving way, enclosing
me with intense compassion.


Wednesday, January 30, 2013


Calm thoughts
flow from the mind
like ocean waves, rolling 
and cascading through my soul while
I rest.


Stop and Breathe

Just when the thoughts
are too stressful

To bear, you reach out
and take my hand

And say, 'It's okay,
let it pass,

You are stronger than this.'
Feeling the calming sense

Of your words, the warm
touch of your hand,

I stop and breathe.
It is all that I need

As I move about the day,
refocused, renewed.

The Moment

Leave all
regrets behind
and live for the moment,
since we never know when our time
will end.


Sunday, January 27, 2013


I love the peaceful
stillness of a new evening,
meditating on
a life filled with good blessings
and a joyful adventure.

Moonlit Sky

The evening is precious,
for it features the moon

Casting its lunar glow
High in the twilight sky,

Perfect for sharing 
magical walks and secrets

With another, a gentle 
touch and kisses made

Even more special 
by the moonlit sky. 


Thursday, January 24, 2013

Evening Sky

I embrace the night
and the gifts its deep blue sky
always leaves behind:
the moon glowing from my huge
window, surrounded by stars.

Hearing Your Voice

When I hear your voice,
my mind begins to

Calm itself from 
chaotic thoughts,

Chasing away the doubts
and fears plaguing my mind.

Hearing your voice
soothes my soul,

Enveloping my body
like a warm embrace.

Anxieties are silenced 
by the sound of your voice,

A comforting whisper
touching my ear,

Assuring me that 
I am not alone.


Monday, January 21, 2013


Walking hand in hand
with you, I enjoy

Viewing the peaceful
scenery, the calm

Wind brushing my face
as I take comfort 

In your touch. Nothing
matters at this moment

Except for your
company as we enjoy

The peaceful surroundings
on this day. 


With Certainty

I walk down the path,
not knowing where the journey
will lead me, but I 
feel it will lead to
promising results. I walk
down the path with certainty.

Sudden Change

I worry about
the sudden turn my life has
taken this week. I
need to stop and breathe deeply
so peace may return.


Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Sweet Surrender

How I would love to
lay in your arms and succumb
to such sweet peace, my
soul surrendering to your
embrace as we share a kiss.


The Question

Another challenge
now stands before me,

And now I struggle
to figure out an

Answer to the
ever constant question

Of doubt: Will I fail?
What is fate trying to tell me?

Another challenge is
staring right at me with

Steely, unflinching eyes,
waiting for me to move.


Monday, January 14, 2013

Closer to You

No one is around
except you and I.

My skin tingles
as I feel your hands

Glide down my back, your 
warm embrace drawing me

Closer to you. 
A sigh escapes my lips

As you leave soft kisses
on my neck and shoulders.

I feel at peace
as you take your time,

Never wanting this 
moment to end.


Sunday, January 13, 2013

Enjoying Company

Nothing makes me more
at ease than spending a day
with you, passing time,
enjoying the company
of one another, laughing.


Friday, January 11, 2013

The Message

The meaning of my dream
remains a mystery:

Your expression pained,
your words bitter,

Saying things I never
heard you say while

You were alive.
I treasure the moments

When you appear
in my dreams;

This time around, I wonder
what this message means,

I wonder what you are
trying to tell me.


Thursday, January 10, 2013

Peaceful Presence

I look upon your face
as you share your story.

I could spend hours
listening to your

Every word, and you
giving me the same

Attention, both of us
sharing secrets and dreams,

Leaning over to whisper
sweet words in my ear,

My hand occasionally
brushing against yours

As we enjoy
the other's company,

Your peaceful presence
comforting my soul.


Monday, January 7, 2013

Now and Always

I look out the window
and gaze up

At the stars,
and I can sense

The light of your eyes
reflecting from the

Shining stars;
I know you are

Encouraging me
to stay strong,

To live out the dreams
meant for my life

At this moment,
and always.


Sunday, January 6, 2013


I believed you were not
like the others, 

Like your actions differed 
from the others 

That deceived me,
yet I was mistaken,

And I am left here 
to wonder how 

I could allow myself 
to be misled.

I can only learn
from this moment,

To be more cautious
in future encounters,

Yet I am left with
a lingering sense 

Of betrayal 
from what transpired

Between you and me. 


Wednesday, January 2, 2013

Put to Rest

I put my troubles
to rest and look forward to 
ready to open the door
and welcome new beginnings.
