Love Comes in Threes

Sometimes I close my eyes and try to imagine my life without her and then I pray to God and give my thanks to Him a thousand times over for a love like He has given me.

The Breath of Night


The Breath of Night
..............................................

Old Sam
barks at the window,
a distant train whistles bye.
Later crickets serenade
closing darkness
and down by the north ditch
a breeze catches in the long grass
which blows in repetitious waves
and at length
the night’s long, soft fingers
are touching about us
with a mimic of cool relief
as we catch our breath.

Love is a shadow.

She Said He Said


She Said He Said
...............................

She said
”I like soft things,
Silk slips and pretty panties
Under my dress on Sunday
And flannel pajamas in the winter time.
Will you buy me flowers,
Red, red roses and pink carnations
All in pretty vases”?

Counting the Stars



She said
”I like long walks
On warm summer nights
And meaningful conversations after sex.
Will you teach me to listen to the moonlight
As we count the stars
On cloudless evenings”?

She Said



She said
”I like scary movies on Friday nights
With vanilla ice cream, buttered popcorn
And a big strong man
Cuddled up closely.
Will you look in my eyes
When you tell me lies
Or will you just turn away and leave
When you feel it’s right”?

I said
”Do you ask this of every man
You’ve been married to
For 30 years?
Or am I the first”?

Then we smiled softly
Each heart in heart
And went back to sleep.

Not Letting Go


Not Letting Go
............................

Outside
a cold stand of trees
wait breathlessly
their arms and fingers
praying for sunshine
each frozen bough
emptied of leaves
except for a few stragglers
and one red apple
hanging on tightly,
the remaining leaves
slowly dwindling down to earth
one
at
a
time.

One Red Apple


Who is it
that notices one yellow leave
in a pile of thousands?
One red apple
hanging on for dear life
in the nipping cold of late October
and does it with a tear in her eye
and in the next moment
laughter comes?

One never knows
with a woman like this
just how lucky he is,
he just
hangs
on
tightly
.

Utah Jay, beautiful words. They are such delicate words. Truly this is from a very talented writer. To put so much feeling into poetry has to be a gift. I loved the photo titled "moon in the willows."

Thanks Carolina, I agree that Jesus is love and that love was his ministry, but I am confused to the 3 3 part?
