an everlasting dance

May 13, 2017 – Graduation

embraced by a melody…

consumed by a rhythm…

I reach beyond my present

and

wrap my arms

around

the memories of the past…

sidelines

 

I miss the sidelines of yesteryear ~

when time and space existed in unison ~

as each moment unfolded

and

our dreams embraced.

 

 

Now,

the passage of time and distance have altered these lines.

 

You have taken flight

~ chasing angels ~

whose beacons flash the promises of dreams.

 

&

 

I stand here

~ quietly ~

as my patience longingly awaits

~ words ~

to scroll……. across……. a……. screen…….

Happy 20th Pnut!

~

I am in shock

&

in awe

&

in a state of disbelief

&

I am amazed

how

20 years

could fly by

on a breeze

Actually Jordan is jumping!!!  Not certain if there is a breeze but, yes he is really jumping and this photo, believe it or not, was neither tweaked, photo shopped or anything of the like!  (Honestly, I asked.)  It seemed Jordan kept jumping like a jack-in-the-box and Peyton took rapid shots with his i-phone and this is the ‘highest point’ picture!

once upon a time…

*

i remember when Power Rangers ruled the world

and

light sabers were the toy of choice ~

*

Batman socks were not allowed to be washed

and

Darth Vader capes had to be worn.

*

hours were spent on the couch watching Star Wars

~ every movie ~

chapters one through six

and

we could never get enough of a T-Rex

eating everything in its midst.

*

~ now ~

it is about fantasy football,

college entrance exams

and

apps to download,

making some bucks

to buy some stuff

and

typing texts to friends upon friends.

*

*

yesterday,

he was my little baby ~

almost 9 lbs of sweet and cuddly coos

with barely a hair on his head,

chunky little cheeks

and

two eyes full of baby blue.

*

today,

he is 5′-11″,

long and lean with an athlete’s build,

two eyes of hazel,

muscular, hairy legs

and

in possession of some serious cooking skills.

*

I keep wondering when and how this all happened,

17 years

have come and gone,

but

what I do know for certain

is I could not be more proud,

of my baby boy

and

what he has become….

*

A_long_time_ago

once upon a very long time……

*

in the beginning

in the beginning…

*

at the present time

in cooking form – fave shorts, shirt, socks…

*

first day of work

Mr. Professional….

*

Happy Birthday Peyton!

My Little Man

~ Forever ~

what i am and not

i am not some character in a grandiose play.

i am not some object to be molded out of a lifeless piece of clay.

i am no one’s obligation

or

a servant on a leash.

I am myself to be.

~ SO ~

you can respect me

or

you can leave me ~

either way,

i am

who

i am meant to be.

in memory of my mom,
who never could

same two words….

¿

every year

i ask the same two questions,

and

every year

the answers never change.

for the first i ask

“How was your day”

and

with one word

the answer is…….

“BORING”

¿

the next one is simple –

“So, what did you do”

and

i would expect a little more explanation

BUT

he never strays from his usual response

and

with a tired sigh

he says……

“NOTHING”

¿

SO,

you can imagine my surprise,

on the first day of school

when my typical inquiries were made ~

a total of five words

popped out of his mouth ~

i was stunned,

i was shocked,

i was amazed!

¿

i just about back ended the car in front,

and

thought I was going to faint ~

when the words

“NOT BAD”

&

“SOME INTERESTING STUFF”

spilled from his mouth,

via

his 16 (almost 17) year old brain!

 ¿

i have nothing more to add to this piece

because i am still in a state of shock,

so

i will say

THANK YOU for reading,

i must get back to work now

i am being bad ~

why

because

i am still on the clock!!!
