The scent of this morning’s
Fresh plucked Magnolia blossom
Fills the room tonight.
One of my favorites…
One I cannot explain to my own satisfaction,
Much less to another.
Tonight, I am reminded of the first time I smelled Magnolia and how the adrenaline swelled through my body while Angels infused the air.
Lemon scented paradise…
It’s different tonight . I cannot lose the lump in my throat no matter how much I swallow.
The scent of Angels this Spring will remind me of my sister who lays dying
Bravely fighting the cancer ravaging her already frail form. Tears scald my cheeks as
I lift the bloom-filled globe to inhale the smell of Heaven that awaits her.

A Blue moon rises
shining through the lacey
Go out now!
Go, this very moment to
Gaze on her unveiled splendor!
Blue Moon of Springtime
Dancing naked in the night…
A haunting melody whispers on the breeze,
A memory forgotten
to my heart.

seeps into the varnishing death
of this young Spring day
Orange blossoms linger.
I capture her scent as she . perfumes the night.
Bid Winter a weary farewell.

We recently completed our most recent trip around the Sun another year encoded in the history book of life
as we know it on this small blue oasis in the milky way in my world the temperate weather had streaks of cold, icy weeks, even snow. Though aches in my old bones, I still managed to have a sparkle in these eyes as the memories of winters past moved through my memory bringing a glow with the remembering…
Last night, a Super Moon shivered in the January sky. I smiled as I watched her glow in the gauzy watercolor night even as I struggled to sleep. Let’s all buckle in for our newest journey into the wide open.

Silent snowflakes drift
down, blanketing the Sycamore
Christmas lights shimmer.

Clouds are settling in
Just days past full moon's rising;
5 December 2017
Sky explodes in orange
Cold Thanksgiving morning
