Passionate Storm

In the storm there is a melody

encapsulating my heart

consecutively woven

a brilliant piece of art

Raging feelings

loneliness with each lightening strike

fighting for suvival

with all my might

Why can’t I see you

or feel your presence

voice as loud as thunder

you are not a rememberance

Becoming part of the rain

flying in the wind

dropping into the ocean

yearning to send

Living each moment

feeling the pain

searching for you

hoping to gain

Reassurance comes

in the form of a rainbow

getting closer

time is slow

Meditation over

never alone

you are always with me

my spirit has grown

An Organ Journey

The scene is grisly

blood where the corpse lays

yet a certain beauty appears

as the light begins to play

On this cold night

with snow on the ground

the wind is eerie

making a whistling sound

The corpse is

placed on the table

the heart is removed

and given a label

Before being stored

the heart gives a beat

flying through the air

down the street

Through the sky

feeling the need

there is a calling

answering with great speed

On another table

a dead heart is removed

the beating heart placed

dancing to the groove

Death in one place

loved ones filled with grief

another place has life

prayers of relief

A spooky beauty to it all

we are all related

connected in life and death

love is inflated

Sending Love to Heaven

Cascading from the falls

my love flows through the rapids

rushing to meet you

with ballads

Time passes

since that sudden wind

took you away

putting my heart into a spin

Love traveling farther

absorbed by the clouds

becoming thunder

hugs and kisses are loud

Into the river of life

my love flows

splashing on your face

as memories arose

Sending love back

in the form of rainfall

dancing around

absorbing it all

Our spirits are joined

death does not part

together for eternity

love in our hearts

.In loving memory of my husband William Pierce on our wedding anniversary. #loveneverdies

A Silhouette Dance

In a conglomerate of ice

impervious to the cold

the flowers sit

a special story to be told

A couple dances

in a moonlight silhouette

perfect concinnity in love

a classic vignette

Separated between time and space

each has left a flower

in preparation

for the happy hour

Eternity awaits

as they continune the dance

flowers waiting in the ice

to celebrate a heavenly romance

The Soul’s Cliff

The search for happiness

a disappointment indeed

so many meaningless things

nothing for my soul to feed

On the edge of this cliff

everything in life in amiss

about to take a plunge

into the abyss

Before bidding adieu

there is a vision

causing me to pause

before making a decision

All of the sudden

there are visions of life

of love and laughter

amid the strife

Moments of meditation

when I am one with the world

moments of peace

when creativity unfurled

Fire and water joining

filled with such passion

seeing love of my mate

emotions in action

Realizing now

the anguish will pass

only a moment in time

pain will not last

Turning around

walking away

feeling blessed

the world is no longer gray

Fire and water meeting

symbols of the soul

life filled with ups and downs

continuing as the journey unfolds

A July Memory

One of my favorite poems written by my husband. Difficult to believe it has been 19 months since his passing. Along with his faith, he also had a wonderful sense of humor.

 

Isaiah 46:4 
New Living Translation (NLT)

4 I will be your God throughout your lifetime—
until your hair is white with age.
I made you, and I will care for you.
I will carry you along and save you

It’s wrinkled now more than before
It hurts when I have to bend,
It still looks much the way it did
But like some long lost, old friend,

It’s not that I would throw it out
Or even change it if I could,
It’s just that so much time has come and gone
It’s not running as it should,

A wrinkle here, a wrinkle there
Some poundage added on,
The vision’s getting fuzzy
And the hair is almost gone,

The teeth are doing alright, I think
I floss and brush them every day,
Then I put them in that little glass
And promptly put them out of the way,

Then there are those pills to help it run
So many I lose track,
When I go away on a trip
They fill up a large backpack,

But there’s nothing much that we can do
Things are just what they are,
We can either sit here crying in our beer
Or go on and open up the bar,

Because time is a cruel pacesetter
It marches to its own beat,
I only hope there’s still some Epsom salts
So I can soak my tired old feet.

A Yellow Flower Ribbon

 

 

Tying a yellow ribbon

around an old oak tree

sending a message to Heaven

you are still the one for me

 

Sending you hugs and kisses

from my heart to yours

living each moment

singing like a bird

 

Feeling you in the wind

your smile in the sun shine

thankful for each day

that you are mine

 

See all the yellow ribbons

that are being sent in my heart

loving you forever

knowing we will never part

 

Happy Valentine’s Day!

A Letter to My Love

deb and bill ocean springs ms

My love

what a year it has been

missing you constantly

feeling you in the wind

 

Searching for your spirit

loneliness in the air

emptiness inside

more than I can bare

 

In this year of grief

longing for your loving touch

wondering if this punishment

have I suffered enough

 

Listening to a recording

comforted by the sound of your voice

watching a video with your image

 my only choice

 

Almost a year has passed

loving you more each day

not knowing where to go from here

or what to say

 

Faith is tested

as life marches on

little acts of kindness

small group to rely on

 

A promise to wait for me

if called home first

remembering gets me through the day

when the loneliness seems to burst

 

I know you are with God

working in the garden

painting pictures, playing guitar, and singing

all sins have been pardoned

 

One day you will meet me

never separated again

forever loving each other

there will be no end

 

Till that time comes

know I always think of you

trying to figure out life

love will carry me through

Water Rising

IMG_3231

Water rising

life came to a screeching halt

how to solve an issue

experience can’t be bought

 

Water rising quickly

ducks and geese swim by

life looks easy for them

keep wondering why

 

A boat comes by

asking if I need a ride

stubborn in my endevour

I say no with pride

 

Water rising with rapids

now in over my head

still thinking I have all the answers

beginning to tread

 

Drowning

calling out to whoever will listen

deep issue to be solved

something in the water begins to glisten

 

Gleaning from 

others traveling the same path

rapids begin to recede

issue has lost its wrath

 

Water receding

community works with me

the issue being solved

loving each other is the key
