First Camellia Bonsai Blossom   1 comment

One year ago October, our friends Kathy and Bob from Winchester, Virginia visited us. They gave us our first camellia bonsai tree. Since then I have been careful to make sure it was watered regularly here in the desert southwest. Although it is typically a late fall blooming plant, the little tree didn’t have any blossoms when we receive it. So, we have been anxiously waiting for it to bloom this fall, wondering if the buds were ever going to open. This image is the first blossom. 

Thanks again, Kathy and Bob for the lovely bonsai.

Our Window Of Yesterdays

Like Cinderella’s
glass slipper

only one shoe
had the right fit.

In life’s early years
it took time
searching
for the right fit —
trying on
many different shoes
before the music
brought us together.

I
slipped into you

tying you
to my body –

knowing
only you
could get so close.

We
have walked

many miles
not always in step
but at the start of each day
you were there.

You
supported each step
through the good times
when we danced together
and the bad times
when the music stopped.

Over the years
I knew
where we were going
you knew
where we had been
as our
 souls
have now worn thin —
broken
held together by twin
only now expressing
the secret face
of our enter selves.

Having been seduced
by a lover’s
darkest kiss
no longer laced together —
merely to be left behind
in the window
of yesterdays
kissed only
by tomorrow’s sun.
