Poetry ~ A Love Affair

you greet me every morning
and every morning 
you take my breath away 
i can't stop staring at the 
vastness of your artistry 
 i breathe you in 
 inhaling your earthly fragrance 
have i mentioned how bewitching
early Autumn looks on you 
you come alive in a color pallet 
of golden hues as you sway 
with the morning zephyr

i am in love with this land  
brimming with wildflowers, 
meadows, aspen, and pine groves 
even the rocky outcroppings
add allure to the rolling hills

i will spend the rest of my days
writing love letters to you,
my new muse
this magical place I call home
Sunset on our property in the Okanogan Highlands of Washington State
Early spring. View of our property from behind the house.

Poetry ~ The Road Home

Dear Readers,
I will be taking a break from my blog. I’m shifting my focus to a new course of study on my spiritual path and working on publishing a book of my poetry. Thank you for your encouragement and support over the last few years. I wish you all continued success with your writing and creative efforts.

I leave you with a poem as we approach Thanksgiving ~ The Road Home. We are all on a journey. Thank you for sharing the path with me.
Yours under the stars,
~ Sue

Shall we take the journey?
Can we go back home?

memories of a younger self
flood back when I’m alone

of a simpler time, on a joyful road
in the backseat of the family car

where sisters sang, laughed and played
and knew that home was never far

let’s take one last trip together
and make more memories to share

let’s sing and play like yesterday
let’s go home; I’ll meet you there
