I was up in the hills,
hunting for mushrooms.
It was in the Okanogan,
a brushy, sapling covered space,
when I came upon a small,
deserted place. It was surrounded
by trees, some buildings collapsed,
probably a miner, working his mine.
I thought of the stories, of his success
or a failure to find riches
of gold in his mine.
Perhaps the only gold
were the thoughts in his mind.

"What have you written?"
words sometime I hear.
At times when I write,
words just appear,
at the end of my pen,
touching the notebook paper.
Random thoughts, are in the air,
soon I have new writings,
over here, there and everywhere.
My mind is not, as disciplined now,
as I write words, over again,
with no sense of when or how,
as I write for you, my unknown friend.

I See

I see the red of a Rose,
in the lipstick you wore,
bringing color to your face,
surrounded with dark hair.
I recall when I saw you,
it was love at first sight,
or perhaps infatuation,
when I was around you.
What was the attraction?
Twas like the Moth to the flame
and while this was all happening,
I knew not your name.

I Desire

I desire to do water colors,
I want to paint.
I bought materials,
brushes, pencils and pens,
with watercolor kits, as I
like to paint, Plein Air,
on in the field.
I have brief pencil sketches,
to keep the site in mine,
but find I no longer have the time.
I know it's a thin excuse,
but it is what it is.
Some day it will happen,
of this I am sure.

Can We

Can we talk about love?
Not the amoral one,
but loving all others,
every day of our life.
Love doesn't have to be sexual,
perhaps it is, early in life,
when we wish to beget children.
Feelings for another,
is OK with me,
if it makes you feel whole,
for the World can be hard
when life takes its toll.
Love one another
as if tomorrow won't be
for if it happens to you,
it may happen to me.

I write words of gibberish,
for it helps clear my mind.
I apologize to you
if my words are unkind.
I do not like to write,
for the help which I need,
but do for the readers,
who may enjoy this word feed.

Of all the things I've done in life,
'twas when I met my future wife.
She was walking with her friends,
as my friend and I were driving by.
We used a smart sexy line,
Get in ladies will give you a ride.
There response was said in unison,
"Get lost Creeps." Later, we met,
at a dance. I believe it was then
she decided she would give me
another chance, to recover my poor
approach. Funny how life works.
I sit here after 64 years of marriage,
praying she will recover from a disease,
which isn't possible. Dementia, has
robbed her of all of her early memory.
Remembers nothing of how we met.
Ask me if I knew her parents.
Words which melt my soul, as I see
her continue to fail and be at a
point, where there is nothing which
helps her do the simple things, in
her life. No matter what,
your are the whole of my life.

The memories from your long time together are gifts from the heavens that now help you have the strength and devotion you show. You have said before that writing helps you during this difficult time, but I must tell you that your writing is inspiring to many of us and your zeal to be admired. Thank you, Jerry, for sharing some of your thoughts.

We Have

We have a granddaughter,
not related by blood,
who won't get vaccinated,
no matter what I say.
My wife has Dementia
and loves to see
our granddaughter
who cuts her hair.
I don't want her near
to grandma or me,
until she is vaccinated.
Is this cruel of me?

I won't but I know it will hurt my son as she is his quasi daughter. He is at risk and she stays with him which makes me irritated.

You Say

Posted by MFish Profile 10/07/21 at 12:47PM Life Stories See more by MFish

You say "I love you"
over and over again.
I'm uncertain you mean them
when you don't know my name.

She doesn’t know your name but she knows she loves you - of that she is certain

Once again you bring your wise and honest reply. I found that true, all the years we worked together.
