Let your eyes do the work!

If my eyes could speak
and convey the true
I would crave no other site
But the sight of you
And would have no other wish
Then to stare at you
For my sweet prince
and all the princes I have known
And of all the hearts I have missed
and failed to have shown
Your were always truly amazing…..
And as my thoughts of you have accrued
That what my lips could never speak
My eyes always knew
by me!

What would you do for love?

“And, when he shall die, Take him and cut him out in little stars, And he will make the face of Heaven so fine That all the world will be in love with night And pay no worship to the garish sun.” {Romeo and Juliet} – William Shakespeare


ahhh, who can forget the amazing passion displayed by these two characters from the movie “The Notebook”.  I get chills just thinking about it.  Unconditional love is pretty dang awesome!


“She is a friend of my mind.”

“She is a friend of my mind.  She gather me, man.  The pieces I am, she gather them and give them back to me in all the right order.  It’s good, you know, when you got a woman who is a friend of your mind.  “passage from Tony Morrison’s “Beloved”


This super romantic guy I met one day put me onto to this saying…and I absolutely loved it the moment I read it…there is nothing more amazing then when someone gets you, whether they are a man, a woman, or even a dog…it’s just mmm. mmm,…good.


Pablo Neruda Rocks!


Excerp from my fave poem, If you forget me
If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.

if each day,
each hour,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.

Dedicated to my friend Pedro, who introduced me to Pablo and who has since found his beloved 🙂

My 14 day ode to Valentine’s Day :)

This too is love!!


So, anyone who knows me, is well aware of the hopeless romantic that I am and have always been.  It has nothing to do with being in love and in fact, I am suffering from a recent broken heart myself…sniff..sniff.  So, my 14 day ode to Valentine’s may sometimes refer to lovers…but I like to think of it as just “loves”.  And, if you think about it, you can have many loves 🙂  I love Cold Stone Creamery, I love the poet Pablo Neruda, I love warm wool socks, legwarmers, the smell of firewood burning, photography, autobiographies, etc..etc.. you get the point.  So, no one should feel left out,  for love is in our hearts and no one can take that away! 


Be confident that you are amazing! you really are….

Because She Would Ask Me Why I Loved Her


If questioning would make us wise
No eyes would ever gaze in eyes;
If all our tale were told in speech
No mouths would wander each to each.

Were spirits free from mortal mesh
And love not bound in hearts of flesh
No aching breasts would yearn to meet
And find their ecstasy complete.

For who is there that lives and knows
The secret powers by which he grows?
Were knowledge all, what were our need
To thrill and faint and sweetly bleed?

Then seek not, sweet, the “If” and “Why”
I love you now until I die.
For I must love because I live
And life in me is what you give.
