Memories of love

IMG_2424

Where are the hours
constantly moving from view
to erase all the traces
faded the light
of days forgotten
still haunting the ever
green shadows

dusty days rise
as roads unwind behind
to all the ways
we travel
long journeys
from our home
beneath the sky

what comfort would come
settled by our nakedness
sun on skin
wind and open water
the sands of time
pour through the glass
and touch our longing

these are the words
letters enduring
notes echoed in ages
bird songs and blooms
of flowers faded
in the sun
as memories of love

Roots and Wings

distant-light

Storms with thunder roll
across the land
Lives are trees uprooted
by the winds of change
Emotions tolling like bells

Far distant steeples
fall silent in the rain
As the water pools
Running in the streets
Streaming through our lives

Going home again
Faded memories waiting
Behind doors unopened
Through decades only dreams
walked these halls

How can I speak to friend
of the sense and the feelings
How the living and the dead
Reach up in bird songs
under the canopies of green

Stillness echoes from the hills
Honeysuckle blossoms on the breeze
Breakfast baking in the kitchen
Time cannot steal you away
Home lives forever in the heart

another day

Our dancing with a dreamer
makes the best of times
Seem altogether sweeter
when we come to find

The love we thought we lost
by being who we will
Was waiting for us far away
where laughter waited still

To fill the halls with echoes of
the warmth we kept inside
The fire of the hearth and home
today we come to find

Life is always giving back
all the love we gave away
And every dream that fills the night
becomes the dawn of our new day
