Paint the Picture

The Expected One
painting by Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller (Museum: Bavarian State Painting Collections) wikidata.org

Wondering, wandering

Never really sure

Exactly what will be around the corner

Curiosity piqued

It just might be love

Perhaps life is a dream

Eyes closed, mind open

The bigger picture attempting to unfold

There’s so much to hope for

So, hoping for love

When wondering and hope

Meet along life’s path

The electricity will light up the world

All because two hearts hoped

Daring to wonder

Reason for Being

You’ve enough to share

Worry not of depletion

Just make the offer

Like the lilies of the field

Giving like they live, freely

Balls in the Air

She’s learned to juggle

Bills, appointments, household chores

Her life’s a circus

Circle Game

Hunting for fresh knowledge

Sorting fact from fiction

Solve the contradiction

Back to square one

Taking Comfort


Hair was

Longer now

Soft and flowing

It draped over her

Shoulders, cascading down

Just like in her younger days

Everyone remarked how it looked

Like a pale gray scarf that kept her warm

They shed some tears as the casket was closed
