Free To

I am free to create and free to explore.
I am free to destroy and free to restore.

Given this life, grateful ever again
I will give and I will love and both I shall send.

With grace and serenity, I wear my colors red white and blue
In love and gentility, I share my freedom with you

With each day I break a stone barrier glass ceiling
and yet I stare at my left hand without that old ring.

The encumbrance of freedom means I can enjoy
the adventure and passion of a life undestroyed.

Renewed, reviewed, rethought and re-seen,
I accept the onus of what freedom means.

The Type of Woman & The Type of Man

Sometimes the curves are more than I can face in a public way. Sometimes I feel more intensely than playful prose will allow.

There is no reason we should be a pair,
nor any sense to the cadence of our friendship,
but for a night - a few nights - we were kind to one another.
Passionate, gentle, loving
and kind.

I have never known kind.
And I am not sure what makes for forever,
but I know compared
to what made for my past,
you are better.

And gently, with no obligation
I love you.
