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

My Serendipitous Romance


Vacant heart

Fielding layers of incessant gray

Resigned to mediocrity

Not seeking

Yet, there you were

Seemingly too-good-to-be-true

A real life sorcerer

Vibrantly colorizing my world from that first mystical smile

Sowing hope atop ashes of forsaken dreams

Captivation so electrifying

Love’s rays swooning the stars to lasso the moon

Anticipating the next

But relishing the now

Nurturing what is

So “the end” never pecks its way across our page

Euphoria thickens my throat

Tears of appreciation silently pool

Swept off my feet for a lifetime

My Serendipitous Romance


Happy Valentine’s Day to my Treasured Readers…

May love worthy of your honorable hearts gently embrace you — today, and always!

    • YOU most certainly know how to make a girl’s — year! 🙂 Thanks for providing the endless support and ever-gracious words that inspire me to share. As you so eloquently capture in your Heart Song Ode:

      “Though it is far easier to quit
      We must step out from our comfortable routines and caves
      Entering the world of risk, emotion and waves
      Crashing into both life’s challenges and raves
      Asking us to to come alive, take a chance and surf the waves”

      Scaling those waves makes it all worthwhile. Whether in love or life, Brad, you deserve the very best!
