Post #300

I’ve written and photographed to two ninety ninety nine,

I’m at the cusp of three hundred on this fun blog of mine.

As I hike and I walk and take pictures galore,

Do I have the stamina for three hundred more?

As long as I breathe and can take a long hike,

It’s my poems and my pictures I hope you’ll still like. 

(I read this to my son and he said “You sound like a hippy Dr. Seuss.”)

Tranquility

When

I look

Into your

Eyes, what do you

See? a mirrored life

Masking tranquility.

Vanilla scented love keeps

Me close, intoxicating in

Its simplicity, flowing freely,

Marking days, the drumbeat of my

Life a silent echo, filling

The void with snippets of time

That continue to tell

Me that I love you.

Seen from afar,

I forget

That you

Breathe.
