A Quiet Man * You are Remembered

I speak to

you sometimes

in those moments





I feel your closeness

within the sound

of the wind through

the trees.


I miss

your gentle quiet ways,

comfortable with silence;

your words of wisdom,

offered tenderly;

your ever present smile,

my own given in return;

your calm ice blue eyes,

that always saw my soul.


I was like an island,

surrounded by an

endless ocean

of love you held

in your heart

for me.


*Note: I was lucky to have this gentle man as my father.

This is a photo of my Dad at the age of 21 shortly after my parents were married. My Dad is looking directly into the lens he always did that. He looked people straight in the eye never looking away. As I got older I noticed it made people uncomfortable, sometimes they’d look away. I remember asking my Dad why that was. His response was two fold, either their lying or hiding something deeper they don’t want you to see.

On a side note: I have a photo of my Mother age 17 in the same setting, apparently taken the same day. however she is actually reading (she loved books) the book.

Wishing my fellow bloggers a Happy Fathers Day to the men who choose to be a Dad, Step Dad, Adopt, or Mentor a child, remember be kind, understanding you are molding who they’ll become.

Always ๐ŸŒŽ โœŒ๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ’™ Take care, be safe.

Secret Fairy Garden

Poetic Thoughts

The wind blows gently,

softly whispers.

Awakening wind chimes

to play their melody.

Fireflies called to gather

lighting garden path.

So their Beloved may witness

Midnight Orchids blooming.

Nature painted them

from a palette of deep vivid colors;

magenta flows to turquoise,

violet running in veins

flows to outer petals.

Their fragrance stimulates senses,

all cultivated for His pleasure.

The moon hides in the

shadows of the clouds.

So as not to be overwhelmed

by the vision of it all.

Walk With Us*

luminous blue moon

fills night sky,

clouds overshadow

itโ€™s light,

winds howling

raises hairs,

eerie lights

appear to glow

among the trees,

silently hidden

away from sight,

one may watch

as spirits stroll

leisurely without

a care,

beware not

to be seen,

for you may

join them




*Note: Music to stroll by

Iโ€™ve also included this video itโ€™s one of my favorites from Disneyโ€™s early days. Itโ€™s silly and fun! ๐Ÿ‘ป Enjoy ๐ŸŒŽโœŒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’™ Take care, be safe.

Day of the Dead (tankas)*

clear circular sphere

fore tells a full moon rising

all hollows eve nears

living await Los Muertos

family gone brought to life


candles burning bright

photos ‘n items cherished

placed upon their graves

nights joy where death has no role

Celebrating memories


*Note: The Day of the Dead (Spanish: Dรญa de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere. Always for your listening pleasure a song for The Day of the Dead. ๐ŸŒŽโœŒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’™

Take care, be safe.

For a wonderful story telling historyof this three day celebration, Iโ€™ve attached this link for your enjoyment.


Viognier (haiku)*

white petals, tart fruit~

sweetness lingers on the tongue~

spicy bouquet bites~


*Note: The grapes that produce this wine are grown in these three regions

To learn more about the grapes that produce Viognier wine I have provided a link below. I find wine production from the vine to the bottle very interesting. As always a song and of course itโ€™s about WINE! Itโ€™s a throw back. ๐ŸŒŽโœŒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’™ Take care, be safe.
