Souls Connect

souls connect.
watch like I am a child again
became a mother again
reminded of why I must continue
on my own journey.
never stop searching, wandering.
my belief in my self must get
stronger, deeper.
remember I can...

Find peace
let the tranquility
run through my veins
and ignite my passion
let it sing from within
guide me.
Flow like the ocean
that now surrounds me
gather my strength from above
learn from my love that has moved on...remember him.
let the love penetrate
souls connect.
like electricity in my fingertips
compels me to move this pen
allows me to be who I am
searcher with a smile
partner with a deeper understanding
my inner voice is loud
my fear is eliminated by desire
curiosity reigns
souls connect

Experience. Freedom. Love. Now.

When he came down to visit
we went to breakfast on the water.
He placed his silverware in perfect
proportion with the table's edge.
Coffee, a few creamers
He always told me stories of his childhood...
He was devious
Always in trouble
A ladies man
An artist
Cigarettes, just like in the old days
The smoke would loom and groove
adding to his demeanour, smooth, hip, slick

He had a deep laugh.
Most of the things I would say made him giggle.
The times had changed so much between our youths.
In his time the women wore white gloves and red lipstick
to the market.
I admired him.
He intrigued me with his lifetimes lived...
Almost 93
Loved for eternity
My Grampy.

I miss you.
