Who Are We ~ In Hues of Blue

unknown artist














Who are we Blue after the spring rain
would time wash away all our pain
what would it take to make us feel alive
when will our dreams finally arrive

Is it our lust for life,  that keeps us believing

Who are we Blue after the summer sun
would we smile at the stories we spun
what would it take to make us shine
when will the universe show us signs

Is it our lust for life, that keeps us searching

Who are we Blue after the fall leaves
would our hearts grow heavy and grieve
what would it take to make us smile
when will the journey feel worthwhile

Is it our lust for life, that keeps us dreaming

Who are we Blue after the winter snow
would we remember our earthly show
what would it take to lift our hearts higher
when will our dreams fill our desires

Is it our lust for life, that keeps us loving

Happy Birthday Blue
from True to you!

an early gift - Hope you have a great day!

More or Less

artist unknown
















When you said you wanted more
did you think I wanted less

When your voice became silent
did you think I couldn't hear

When you shut your mind
did you think I  couldn't get it

When you closed  your eyes
did you think I couldn't see

When you became distant
did you think I couldn't reach  you

When you guarded your heart
did you think I couldn't feel pain

When you suddenly drifted way
did you think I couldn't find my way

When I said I wanted more
did you think that made me less

Love Me, Love Me Not


artist unknown


love me not like a straight and narrow path
but, love me on a jagged road, discovering curves

Love me not like a beautiful sunny day
but, love me on a rainy day drenched naked

love me not like a perfectly groomed flower
but, love me with sprawling roots of a weed

love me not like an  ocean of tranquility
but, love me riding dark turbulent waves

love me not, on  perfected wings in flight
but, love me on broken wings learning to fly

love me not with soft shimmering candlelight
but, love me with intense fire burning our souls

I think I put my own spin on the prompt

I Want To Run



I want to run with warrior feet
barefoot to the drummer's beat

I want to run to the buffalo's song
my spirit in tune, singing along

I want to run on open prairies
nibbling on wild wolf-berries

I want to run to the highest cliff
reading ancient stories in petroglyph

I want to run beyond my dreams
resting where it's quiet and serene

Cobbled Words


pinterest

We cobbled our words
in mortar and clay
pebbling a pathway
for our love to be heard

Sunny times, we never forget
but, on those rainy days
we threw out the hay
dampening sounds of regret
broken pieces of our heart
set us apart
