Good Morning

Half asleep lying in bed
I feel you move next to me
And the covers thrown off
Just as I am about to move
Your finger traces my spine
A tantalizing touch
That stirs my desires
I try to roll over
But you stop me
With kisses on my back
Your hands still caressing me
I know where this is headed
And my body lets out a shudder
A wonderful way
To spend a Sunday in bed
Entwined in each other

Destination You

Too many white lines
Blur my vision
Coffee is in my veins
As I try to fuel myself
My grip on the wheel
Has become too tight
Traffic is lite at 4 am
Lulling me into weariness
But the highway before me
Is the road back home
Back to you
And much needed peace

Fire in my heart
Desire in my body
Thoughts only of you
But it will never be
You see me only
As a friend
Someone to talk to
Not a body worth touching
Someone to laugh with
Not a heart to beat with
But in my eyes
We are bound by more
We know each other so well
We are souls entwined
In a closeness that is
A once in a lifetime union
If only I could be enough for you

A moment of time
Captured forever
A bird never again to take flight
A flower forever in bloom
A smile never to leave your face
A sunset that never turns dark
Just a frozen piece of history
Developed into a work of art
And it all began with a simple shutter’s click

At First Sight

He had an idea
To make life easier
Some know how
And a little ingenuity
He was on his way
To fortune and fame
How was he to know
She had the same idea
And would be
At the patent office
On the same day
With prototypes in hand
They met at the door
Slowly smiles spreading
Across both their faces
As their gazes locked
You would think
They would fall in love…
But it was a race to the counter
To see who would
Get the patent first

I Surrender

I give up
Hands in the air
I admit defeat
I hope you don’t care
That I thought
And I thought
And the right words
I found naught
But it is hard to find
A word that could rhyme
With euphemism
In such short time
So I put down words
Of my struggle today
And hope that tomorrow
Will be a more productive day

Mumbles… home care

I am taking a minute or two to write down a few thoughts and feelings but thought I would start with a Mumble. My Dad made it home after a full week in the hospital. His pneumonia is cleared up but he is still having some issues with confusion and memory. So he was sent home only with the understanding that someone would be there 24/7 for a couple of weeks. I take the over-night shift and we use a home care service for the other 12 hours of the day. Not a nursing staff, just someone to help out with trying to keep him mobile off and on throughout the day, meals and keeping an eye out for further confusion issues. This is only day two so there has not been much improvement yet. He just asked me yesterday if my younger self had been there a minute ago…. that is kind of impossible. I so hate the thought of him getting dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, it was hard watching my Mother-in-law going through it I don’t know if I have the strength to do it again.

I am slowly trying to get back to my reading and writing. I have seven daily prompts to do and LOTS of reading to catch up on. Dad however does not have Wi-Fi so I am limited to daytime activity. I am so used to doing Word Press at night I am not sure the muses will accommodate my daytime words. LOL So bear with me… I will get to those old post and eventually the new ones. I didn’t want you all to think I ran away. Have a good day/night… (((HUGS)))
