Poems From The Porch

Love All Around


The mums are blooming yellow

in the clay pot that my son decorated for me.


The candle flame is dancing

in the stained-glass holder that my sister-friend gifted to me.


“You have put gladness in my heart,”

reads the big, orange coffee cup

that my creative-genius confidante wanted me to have.


My dear Julie, signed my journal, "With love, joy, and peace."


Open your eyes.


Look around.


You are swimming in a sea of Love.
