Happy Valentine’s Day, Y’All (I am in Georgia)

For most of my life (50+ years) I have been in love, or in lust and sometimes…heavy like.

Lost in my love’s arms, or wanting to be or just having a great time.

Like most fickle men, enjoying serial monogamy, there has been only one true love and no one can compare; once she shared her secret places, her strength and tenderness and she is always a mystery.

There is no love like a sailor for the sea.

I cherish the moment she won me,

I couldn’t breath, dare not move,

afraid it would end.

It grew stronger

with the long passage of time

between heartbeats.

Predawn hours,

sky and sea

shrouded in fog

that would swallow the land

as I sailed away into the emptiness.

Sun rising over my shoulder

swells rising over rocks, their sound

a child’s applause to a magic trick.

Light dancing on crests of waves

colors green, blue, grays and golds.

My skiff drift to a place of relative calm as

I lower my lines.

Maybe I’ll fish

or lay in the arms of my love.

I am surrounded by books with great, even heroic quotes, grand philosophies and theologies, mysteries and wonderments. I've never met an author of any. Oh what a finer person I would be if I had raised my voice above the pounding of the sea with Cicero, walked with Saul on that road to Damascus and on and on and on. Well, I didn't. But I've met some pretty swell people that had something to say...and many are related to me; they're My Family Jewels.

        1. No cows in Woodstock, some horses and a gang of sheep and their respective dogs and, of course, the donkai (pronounced: don_ki; the plural of donkey…not to be confused with off spring of donkai pairing the donklet).
          Have a grand weekend.

  1. Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the
    same results.
