a warm and welcome place to share words and thoughts

Inspired by stories of love

Because I no longer watch TV I find myself reading voraciously. The written word is often where I discover stories of life and love, be they real or imagined. And in these stories I see how love can be between two people, love that is strong enough to withstand the ups and downs of life. Words like partner, soul mate and true love are reflected in these relationships. Yet I also come across such lovely pairings in my connections with others. My daughter and her fiance glow with this deep love; a true partnership where they are so involved in building a life together, conferring with each other on all matters, large or small. With those who love this way there is a degree of support in each other that is incredible, as they fit together like puzzle pieces and create the picture of their life.

Interlocking

 

The pieces are strewn out

All over Creation

And our Creator sorts all of us out

To fit us together

Setting aside possibilities of pieces

That just might join together perfectly

 

You appear in His hand

With your cut – out pattern

Of you

God gently sets you aside

As He picks up the jig – saw piece

Of me

And tenderly places us side by side

 

We are different shapes

And uniquely colorful patterns

But when God joins us together

Our puzzle pieces fit

Perfectly interlocked

Because of our love

 

We are part of a glorious picture

Of all that life and love is

I need to connect with you

To help complete that picture

You are my puzzle piece

The one who fits me

So perfectly

My daughter and her fiance, so in love…

A wedding poem

The inspiration continues, my dry spell of writing seems to be over, for a time anyway. While having my tea this morning, during my morning routine of slowly waking up, I was thinking of my children. I live in Portland now, they live in Minnesota, and Thanksgiving will be the first time I won’t be sharing a holiday with them. I’m going back to Minnesota in December for two weeks, to be there for Christmas, and I’ll be staying at my daughter’s house which is actually her fiance’s house until they get married in September of 2012. And I thought of the two of them, how cute they are together and so in love! Then the words starting coming out, so fast and furious like they do when I am in the flow – so fun! I e-mailed my daughter the finished poem, and she wrote back that both her and her fiance loved it! So much that they want me to read it at their wedding – I am so touched! It means so much to share my words, and being able to read the words I wrote for her and her love will be a joy and an honor. This is an occasion where the writing takes on a whole new meaning….

Devoted to Each Other

I watch them together

I see the exchange of love

 As they gaze into each other’s eyes

Adoration so apparent

A sweet hug in the kitchen

A tender kiss on her forehead

Love expressed

In their shy and private manner

There exists between them

A tolerance of individuality

She accepts the unique wall decorations he chooses

While he makes room for all her clothes

This is unconditional love

This is why they speak the vows

Of forever love

And undying devotion

To each other
