an everlasting dance

May 13, 2017 – Graduation

embraced by a melody…

consumed by a rhythm…

I reach beyond my present

and

wrap my arms

around

the memories of the past…

the close of day

the view across the pond

I am intrigued by sunsets ~

bewitched,

bewildered

&

frightened.

I see more than days

passing

into

nights

&

kaleidoscopes of color

swallowed

by

darkness.

I see moments approaching ~

slipping away

&

chapters ending ~

never to be lived…….

again.

a walk with P

an autumn walk

 

embraced by friendship

kissed by possibility

future is boundless

a moment ~ ~ ~

 

Version 2

pre-run prep…

 

each giggle begets

an indelible memory

that brightens my spirit

and

warms my heart…

~ trailblazing ~

 

Version 2

 

watery eyes,

runny nose,

freezing fingers,

burning toes ~

 

poles in hand,

laces secured,

ratchets tight,

crunching……. sounds…… underfoot ~ ~ ~

 

such a wonderful time ~ ~ walking in the snow ~ ~

with trails ahead

and

a smile in tow!

 

……… just purchased a pair of snowshoes – so much fun!!!

Aspirations ~ ~ ~ ~

 

there are fragments of thought sitting quietly…

in the shadows…

wanting to break through the restraints of time and incertitude…

 

fragments of images…

wanting to create a soundtrack of words ~ ~ ~

 

~ ~ ~ a whimsical turn of song and dance ~ ~ ~

 

~ ~ ~ frolicking about ~ ~ ~

 

~ ~ ~ upon the pages of one’s imagination…

 

 

to be continued……

the first night of lights

colorful candles

hearing her voice once again

a comforting glow

once upon a time…

*

i remember when Power Rangers ruled the world

and

light sabers were the toy of choice ~

*

Batman socks were not allowed to be washed

and

Darth Vader capes had to be worn.

*

hours were spent on the couch watching Star Wars

~ every movie ~

chapters one through six

and

we could never get enough of a T-Rex

eating everything in its midst.

*

~ now ~

it is about fantasy football,

college entrance exams

and

apps to download,

making some bucks

to buy some stuff

and

typing texts to friends upon friends.

*

*

yesterday,

he was my little baby ~

almost 9 lbs of sweet and cuddly coos

with barely a hair on his head,

chunky little cheeks

and

two eyes full of baby blue.

*

today,

he is 5′-11″,

long and lean with an athlete’s build,

two eyes of hazel,

muscular, hairy legs

and

in possession of some serious cooking skills.

*

I keep wondering when and how this all happened,

17 years

have come and gone,

but

what I do know for certain

is I could not be more proud,

of my baby boy

and

what he has become….

*

A_long_time_ago

once upon a very long time……

*

in the beginning

in the beginning…

*

at the present time

in cooking form – fave shorts, shirt, socks…

*

first day of work

Mr. Professional….

*

Happy Birthday Peyton!

My Little Man

~ Forever ~
