the smile

caught us both

you liked mine

i liked yours

intensity built

as the conversations flowed

inundating the email system

in a back and forth flurry

then on to Messenger

day and night

into the wee hours

parlaying…smiling…laughing

detours…disconnects…

realignment…words running furiously onward

time knew no bounds

then

texting followed my heart

through several states

then

we skyped

and met face to face

then

we planned how we would meet

then

plans became interrupted

and

now…

NOTHING…

even in their absence

words ARE  sharper than swords

Solitude

silent sounds strengthen

                  the smALLness

                                        in finding one’s heart

whispering waves

waver… wander…wonder

LOVE

la cime de l’espirit

heart longing to be

beyond within

travel  through  transformation

touch

JESUS

A Plethora of Taste or I Love to Eat in August!

Relish the crispy, crunchy cucumber…

Live through the explosive flavor as the corn is squirting in your mouth

Savor the warm…tender…juicy…cherry tomatoes…

Contemplate the zealous zucchini!

Appraise the plethora of peppers: green, yellow, orange, red rainbow of succulence!

Regard this August as the best month of the year!

Deliberate the taste…

Contemplate the consummation of the summer food at its height!

The tangy tongue considers…and moves forward….

Wrapping up every last flavor!
