First Snow

Secret to youth:
Snow cascading joyfully;
Cheeks scarlet with cold.

made my day...

My step mom (who's more than a stepmother, really), Kelly, gave me a shout out on her beautiful blog, Mrs. Mediocrity.

It made me smile and I realized that it's the little gestures like these that show how love, beauty, and understanding emanate from people dear to you...

Three Words

Inspired by Three Word Wednesday


I traveled to the 
other side of the world
to escape you.

I collected treasures of 
sun-soaked beaches, 
delicate shells,
lust evening breezes,
peace of mind.

Yet, on those nights,
when I lay in cool sheets,
I think of your quiet gesture:
brushing my hair 
back from my face.
My memory's effect is immediate;
I forget to remember 
why I left in the first place.
