“When…?” #Repost

I don’t know
when I fell in love with you…
it wasn`t a day
or a week

no set time or phase
I fell in love
in a season
in a summer

in a cool night breeze
in a moment
in the night we breathe
in a thought

in a book somewhere
beneath the trees
in the grass
in the dew

where we placed our hands
and displaced the heat
in a greeting or salutation
a look into your eyes

a smile on your face
and comforting you when you cried
my thoughts were gone
without a trace…

I realized
I was missing you from me
I questioned
if you complete me

soul to my mate
the mate of my soul
lost myself
forgot my goals

you gave a renaissance
to my soul
freed me
from my issue of control

I don’t know when I fell in love
with you
but it wasnt a set day or time
but when I did

I knew you were mine…

To Poetry

I have always been a sucker for poems about love. It is one of the most addictive things on this earth. Hands Down…

I don’t have much to say about this post. This one just really came to me.

I just wanted to tell all of my faithful followers.
Thank You!!!!
for taking the time to visit and share my work with your own circles. I have said before when I first started this blog that it had a completely different direction. Now I have fashioned it to my liking and couldn’t see it any other way.

So I am going to share something behind the scenes about my blog. I post my posts on a schedule of 3 and 5 days. It depends on the post before to say how many days after it the new one will be posted. So even tho my posts are scattered they have an order to them.

I never really understand over-posting and over-tagging. I know the point is to reach as far as possible but This is not FB or twitter or IG. Anyway if your always posting on your blog how can you be out there enjoying this thing we call life or the world around us. Even if you’re posting about it.

Ok so this post is to acknowledge that I have reached over 100 posts; and I am simply saying THANKS for following.

As Always…

Stay Positive!


Looking back when I first started this web-log. I never thought it would reach here. I started this blog with the intention for it to be something completely different, than what it has become. I guess that was bound to happen with life and the way the world operates. I have reached fifty posts. I thought it would be good to recognize this milestone in my blogging growth.

I would like to thank everyone who takes the time to read and visit this site on a regular basis. It is recognized and appreciated!

As Always…
