“LOVE” is in the air…

Out of the blue, emerging message strewn, Where wishes made on stars do oft come true, Across the azure sky, each letter drawn, I could not turn away from what I knew. First “L”, then “O”, (the thermals softly blew), The bus on which I rode went faster, still as if in trance, I stared […]

Wilderness

There was a time when mountain springs ran clear, There was a time when red fox roamed a-near, There was a time this pump house served the town, There was a time when water flowed on down, There was a time when trailheads weren’t seen, There was a time when sheer cliffs carved this scene, […]

Caution!

Please use caution… Though water’s sparkling clear, There’s danger lurking near. Please use caution… Tall grasses waft and sway, But warning signs allay. Please use caution… Below the glimmering pond, Sea creatures ‘neath the fronds. Please use caution… The wafting, shallow marsh, Conceals a hazard harsh. Please use caution… Serenity and calm, May, with a […]

Bouquet of Daisies

I’ve never seen a sight as white and bright, As brilliant when the bud, though still entombed in purple deep, becomes a vibrant sight, Near blinding, once that flower’s fully bloomed. Emerging one by one, these daisies’ flumes bestir the heart and take the breathe away, Distract and turn the heads of hardened grooms, Who […]

Wanderlust

In March, while on a SHU Booster Club trip to Indianapolis to support Seton Hall at Butler, we made side visit to the fantastic and historically significant Indianapolis Speedway. Not a racing fan, I was less than enthused, until we got there. The enormity of the track, the steeply banked turns, the historic bricks, did, […]

This Earthly Plane

This earthly plane on which we mere subside, Seems other worldly, wistfully serene, A plane between where sky and sea collide, Where humankind do live and dare to dream. Is earth a conjured backdrop for our schemes? We know it’s mere a sphere amid the vast of deep, dark space; yet more than it may […]

Village Nights

My “village” wears a shawl of winter snow, Yet folks return each year to take their place, And lighting from within the homes we know, Create an air of warmth and welcoming space. ”T was only hours ago they lay in crates, Securely stored to spend the warmer climes, Anticipating joy on grandson’s face that […]

Carry

After an exhaustively satisfying jaunt to Disney Springs, we return to our Polynesian Paradise, with visions of plunging into a refreshing Oasis Pool. This photo captures many emotions for me, transporting me back to the warmth of that day; tasty lunch on the deck of the Boathouse, our traditional “Downtown” shopping and snacking adventures, and […]

The Maze

She, tempted by the lure of the unknown, And yet she feared the secrets held within, She should have turned away, she should have flown. Aroma cedars bunched, full overgrown, Soft and nestling teased her to come in, She, tempted by the lure of the unknown, The sign was clear, the entrance etched in brown […]

Buttercups

In striving for fulfillment, seeking light, She almost overlooked the golden blonde, For brilliance oft confuses, blurring sight. Throughout her teenage years the buds so slight, Wee blossoms rose from lush and limpid ponds, She sought fulfillment, ever seeking light. Against the glistening of the leafy heights From dewy droplets clinging to her fronds, For brilliance […]
