WEP - Your Kiss

Your Kiss

A connection unbreakable

enveloped in desire


lips meet

complete surrender

home finally, home


Oh, that kiss

And everyone after

words can never describe

memories will never subside

a want seeking fulfillment

a place only lovers know


That kiss

stole my soul

imprisoned my heart

fulfilled every fantasy


please, more


That kiss

surpassed all dreams

nourished every wish

but time plays a cruel game

distance more harsh

still memories recall


That kiss

even today, years beyond


that kiss

that I desire

and my heart requires.

A Garden For All

A Garden for All

 I plant hundreds of bulbs in the fall

anticipating colorful blooms next spring,

such a delight.

But under my nose in the dark of night

pesky squirrels dig and dig until they have taken them all.


I wait with anticipation but to my horror

in early April, then May, no blooms appear.

This mystery has to wait

for it's a garden, I must create.


I buy half-grown bushes, with flowers already popping.

This time I watch, as the deer, rabbit, groundhog,

and squirrels continue their robbing.

My garden is once again, bloomless.

As the mystery's answers unashamedly appear.


I curse those pesky invaders as I watch them cavort.

They play, and they hop, but their murdering essence I must stop.

After hours of research, new plants are bought.

A new garden planted

All in an effort to stop the evil wrought.


My garden is lovely

with flowers and shrubbery

in all their beautiful glory

a fitting end for this sordid tale

of creatures who love to forage.
