Not a given..

Published February 11, 2019 by lamarrwenrich

The seconds that tick

dissipate unaware

giving way to the day

creating moments that are rare..

unparalleled – unequal-

unique to their own..

not a given but a

gifting

your time like fine wine..

Take it in slow

savor it as it goes..

for if you’re lucky enough to see the value

of the time that entwines you

to those all around you

then you’re free to know

There is no hold

There is no goal

There is no premium on the giving of your soul..

Feathers and Steel

Published February 6, 2019 by lamarrwenrich

For a moment

For a day

Show me the way..

bring me home to the place I wish to be..

I bleed every time I choose to lose..

my heart has quieted down

no longer wishing to drown..

last fight with my twin

the enemy within

not giving in

victory is my win..

The wrinkles on my soul have made me whole..

I’m strong, I’m weak

I’m right, I’m wrong

I’m all mixed up

But I belong..

Feathers or steel

why not both

They make me real..

Days of old..

Published September 24, 2018 by lamarrwenrich

anticipation is

running strong

Thoughts and memories of days long gone..

nerves and excitement fill the air

while some walk around to shy too share

others are living, walking vibrant stories

waiting to unfold with friends of old..

Father Time we can’t rewind — yet the past is vibrant in their minds..

we see it dancing in their eyes – the joy spills over and for a time

past and present intertwine..

It’s good, it’s right

their hearts delight and they let themselves get lost to the magic of the night..

And the days of old become moments of gold..

Stepping Stones

Stepping stones

to where we’ve been
To all we are
To all we aren’t
To where we’ll be
And all we’ll see..
For life keeps going
and we’ll keep growing
as each step holds us up through the badder and the worse; pushing us on to the better and the good..
Unsaid words sung in my heart
Remind me of our once upon another time when I made you mine..
Write me something beautiful was all I could say..
Because I was touched right from the start —
your markings are etched on my heart..
so let’s keep stepping on each stone that’s raised
never losing sight
even in the haze..
moving on toward that special goal where the love of two makes us whole..

Crookeds and Straights

Published December 27, 2017 by lamarrwenrich

zig zagging..

crooked or straight

Lines

created from life..

past & present

join, intersect and form us..

binding us tight

The memories

What we hold near&dear

become our truths..

what we see, what we feel, what we believe to be real

Is how we deal..

it can grow us or

ravage us

choices to be made..

It is ok and sometimes

it is right to live in the crookeds..

There will be no finding the straights..

For there to be a shadow

There has to be light

let your focus be on the bright..

Stitches..

Published November 19, 2017 by lamarrwenrich

 

Burgeoning, flourishing, alive..
each moment budding into a better person..
Awakened..
suddenly aware of how much life is in each moment;
lived or wasted by choice..
the trajectory of the moments changing..
sending me flying into orbit as I discover the many shapes of me..
My heart – a geometry of sorts..
Lines curves and angles all intersecting..
an arrangement of the parts of my heart all stitched together into a beautiful symmetrical love..

Ugly Beautiful

Published October 26, 2017 by lamarrwenrich

battered, bruised and chipped apart

but we are solidly rooted

grounded in love..

misshapen – with an unspoken beauty-

an inward badge of hope, courage and strength..

We stand strong

like the statuesque oak tree that weathers the storms –

as it creaks and moans in its’ twists & turns..

we -too- bend to the mighty winds – growing in wisdom, connecting and forming to other branches – until we are so solid – no force can shake us..

standing firm in our twisted stance – we are beauty –

catching the eyes of passersby

sharing feelings of great expectations and desires of hope..
