When I am An Old Women   2 comments

Warning

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I’m tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick flowers in other people’s gardens
And learn to spit.

You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
Or only bread and pickle for a week
And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.

But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
And pay our rent and not swear in the street
And set a good example for the children.
We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.

But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.

The sun fades away

but leave reflections

invading my thoughts.

A miniature heart

blossoms on her lips.

In the previous posting “Ready To Start Going Places” I used an image of the
San Antonio River Walk which brought to mind a video I produced of our spring vacation in April 2009.

To Make Soft . . .   Leave a comment

To Make Soft . . .

Words,
words have feelings

Feelings,
feelings are everything

Struggling,
struggling to share feelings

Placing,
placing petitions of desire

Door,
door of your heart

Shut,
shut not the door

Love,
love will concur

Scorn,
scorn not what we do

Looking,
looking for peace of mind

Truth,
truth will set us free

Explaining,
explaining not what is real

Complicated,
complicated for the weak

Knowing,
knowing not our time to go

Lifetime,
lifetime is no time at all

Joy

I thought about you, girlfriend

I thought about today
Taking a big breath.

I thought about tomorrow
Exceeding my grasp.

I thought about time
Wondering about timeless.

I thought about life
Asking the question.


I thought about people
Knowing not what I see.

I thought about what is
Wondering why?

I thought about ideals
Seeking what should be.

I thought about art
Becoming aware.

I thought about love
Touching the feeling.


I thought about Joy
Feeling love inside.

I thought about you,
Walking with long shadows.

I thought about tomorrow
Sharing your path.

A Time To Celebrate   Leave a comment

Joy at the Wizard blogImage by kenne

Time to celebrate.
The wine glass
is shattered.
The water fountain
begins its weeping.
It is useless
to stop it.
We ponder
the moment,
sharing expectations.

Been Here Before — A Valentine Message   Leave a comment

joy45sawmill-i_blog-cohenAfternoon Delight — Image by kenne

I’ve been here before
known this place
walked this floor

lived here alone
before, I knew you.

You became my 
photographic muse
an afternoon delight
laying on a bed of red
shadows of natural light.

Blue, blue windows
opened to the sky
clouds move by
casting moments
to dream by.

Morning would come
roosters crowing
at the break of dawn
sheets still damp
moments to live by.

Imagine yesterday’s
times we’ve shared
becoming memories
fueling our tomorrows
filled with timeless love.

Now, everyone can see
you belong to me
knowing it’s so
hard to love, still
we share the look
of satisfaction.

“things that remain to
remind us of what we were
before we were without that
which prompts us to remember.”

During our recent brief stay in Sedona, Jill, James, Joy and I went on a two hour jeep tour behind Thunder Mountain. I used James as an excuse to finally get Joy out on a back-country jeep tour. Considering that Joy was still recovering from surgery, she did quite well.

The ride was a joy with Joy!
