Midnight Dates

Midnight Dates (Randyjw; January 31, 2018)

 

Beneath the fruit-filled palms

sweet memories and songs

I celebrate

the midnight dates

returned where I belong

 


 

I can hardly believe that one year has passed so seemingly quickly since my last Tu B’shvat post. I can vividly recall the emotions I was feeling at that time, and believe I’m now stronger and in a better place, especially heart-wise, these many days later.

 

This progression has been a journey helped along by the community of writers in WordPress, and by the trial of my soul borne through reflection and introspection; I can’t thank you enough.

 

Have a great Tu B’shvat, with all of the goodness and sweetness of Life always at your side.

 

Love, Randy/Rachel

Soul Seek

Soul Seek (Randyjw; January 26, 2018)

 

It seems we always return

to some specific times and moments

the point of crash at which

love, death

horror, or regret

leave with their lasting impact

impart their never-ceasing

cycles

of alternate endings

remembrance

forget

First attempts

inexperience

Made-up songs

once begun

self-same audience
