Contemplations about Life, Love, & the Pursuit of Meaningful Existence…

Treasures Await



Life is a Kaleidoscope through his eyes…

Vibrantly rich

Ever-changing surprise

Charmingly amusing

Laughter vanquishes sadness

Cooking becomes art

Foods burst across palates

Wine showers taste buds in her velvety bouquet

Music peppers a collage of memories

Each song composing another verse in an eternal melody

Every day a continuance of thrilling excursion

Routine moments intensify

With that rare someone who spies

Magic in the ordinary

A jolting thunderstorm turns into

Breathless candlelit moments

Tantalized by zigzags of electric energy

Punctuated by soul-stirring booms

Admiring stars as they poke through breaks in the clouds

Flaunting glows with zip in their strut

His arms swiftly encircle

Fingers intertwine


He gently guides

Around the bend

He gestures


Treasures await…
