My Journal

Sitting on the night stand
under soft glowing light

You whisper in my ear
enticing me to write

Your possibilities are endless
Blank pages spell delight

Your comfort like a blanket
transforms and holds me tight

Your allure of empty pages
beckons through the night

Tempting and seducing
my muse I cannot fight

Valentine's Day Haiku

Photo by Linda Rogers

My Valentine's Day...
Grocery Shop and clean house
This is how it starts

Time for Asian lunch
With my best friend~ the twin sis
Sat in dining room

Cozy booth, low light
Deep conversation, until...
Clap- Clap-what was that?

Man behind curtain
Bellied up at bar in back
Holds her hand in his

He drinks her sweet kiss
Loudly singing her praises
She's tonic and gin
