Love is never closed for business.


With love there is always room at the table.

Bring what you have to share

even if it is just a memory, a song.

Together we will make a meal to feed

not just our stomachs

our souls shall be satisfied

nourished through connection.

Your stories on my tongue

sweet and savory.

Celebrate #Loveuary with But I Smile Anyway…

    1. Thanks Mabel. Great to hear from you. My focus for poetry this month is love. The time I am spending reflecting on the many forms of love has been more amazing that I thought and the month is far from over. Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?


      1. You are right. The month is far from over, and the year is far from over. No, I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day. Or my birthday. I celebrate each day as it is, as each day is special in itself and worth living for, and appreciating.
