just hold my hand...

whenever, however, forever...

three words to describe another three words. both sets carrying equal weight and forcefulness.
both sets, indicative of my heart, soul and mind.

another three words.

does everything come in three?

always so near, so near i can feel you when i close my eyes...

always intellectual, playful,

beguiling and argumentative....

always pushing,


embracing the fullness of the idiosyncrasies

that make up the firmament of me.

and i will look upon your hand in mine,

my dear friend and think upon these words, my favorite words

that my favorite poet says, oh so sweetly,

'here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)'

whenever, however, forever


  1. Sugar, you have taken one of my all-time favorite poems and made it even more touching. Sweet.

  2. I love when you write. This is powerful. It is resonating in me.


Thank you for taking the time to not only read my blog, but to comment as well. Bright Blessings of the day to you!
