Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

Hi Everyone!

Thanks to all of you that voted for me already on Spillwords as Publication of the Month on Spillwords Press for my poem Memories of You. And thanks for those of you who have tried. I know it is a little tricky having to sign up but I really appreciate you making the extra effort. It means the world to me and it is such an honor to even be nominated so thank you from the bottom of my heart. I’m a little off my schedule with a wedding fog brain, not unlike the Covid fog but in a great way.

I’m just realizing that today in my time zone we’re only 90 minutes from the 29th which is the deadline to vote. I finally cast my vote but not everyone has been so lucky and had a few snafus. THANKS FOR TRYING!!!

It also occurred to me that you may not have read the poem so here it is….

Memories of you

Memories of You

Love falls softly in my lap
as silkworms land in my hair.
Pictures woven into nests of silk,
bosoms bare, serving love and feeding bellies.

Each strand, woven in a tapestry of perfection.
Seasons brought new adventures;
swinging off a trapeze or floating down the river.

And now I sit, looking at your photographs of sun kissed days
and starlit nights.
Unpacking each undulation,
lovingly and tenderly as cocoons turn into butterflies
and sweep my face in sweet embrace.

Also, I have a published poem coming out Friday from MastecadoresUSA so I won’t be able to share the wedding pics with you until next week but I need a week to catch my breath anyway.

Let’s just say it all started on Thursday night with the rehearsal and dinner and then we had the Welcome Party on Friday night with 200 people at our house. 😜🀩😎. It was fabulous and our house looked the best it’s ever looked after all of the planning with the usual snafus that go into it and now we’re back to the clean up.

The wedding was Saturday where the entire wedding party came to our new bedroom/bathroom to get ready and then to the venue to get married and have their reception. It was beautiful in every way and they were over the moon. Sunday, we had a few family members over for brunch and then collapsed and am just getting back into the swing of things slowly.

Next week, I’ll share the whole story full with pics and videos with you all.

Thanks again for your support and vote!

It’s a beautiful poem, Cindy. I kept trying to vote, but looping icon stayed looping indefinitely, even after refreshing. So finally I sent an email to them to register my vote. All the best, Cindy! Good luck to you. Happy wedding time. Have a nice time.

Cindy, terrifically done. I love your close and the companion picture.

“Unpacking each undulation,
lovingly and tenderly as cocoons turn into butterflies
and sweep my face in sweet embrace.”

I picture a person who is tenderly unpacking the fine little figurines she carefully wrapped for a move. It takes time for the butterfly to escape, so the person is taking time not to break anything.

SMiLes Dear Cindy Best of Wishes to Winning the Award for the Best Publication
of the Month Sounds Like the Wedding Celebration You Held For Your Daughter
Was a Stellar One Where i Will Enjoy Seeing All the Smiling and Dancing Photos

Hopefully Someone
Recited Some Poems
too Namely You With SMiles

And Sure Some of Your Other Family
Members Too Again i’m Reminded of my

Wedding Almost 33 Years ago as me and my
Wife Celebrated Being ‘Together for 33 Years
on September 21st As Even ‘Earth, Wind, And
Fire’ Remember That Date in ‘September’ Hehe also on or about
That Date in 1959 i Was Conceived As the Doctor Noted Going
on Vacation And Delivering me Two Weeks Early on Somewhat
of an ‘Omen’ Birth Date on 6.6.60 At Least According to A Way
Driver’s Licenses Do Birthdates HAha True Quite A Challenge
Marrying a Future Devil in Hell for 66 Months Not Quite
Human At All then i Suppose It’s Not So much Who

We Love

Yet How We Love

mY FRiEnD Only A
Handful of FRiEnDS
About Half of them Passed
Away Now Since the Blackwater
River And a Boardwalk Witnessed
Our Marriage By A FRiEnD A Notary
of the Public Then A Reception in A Bowling
Center Where The Gifts Were Given then by the
Customers i Served for the Federal Government

True All it Cost Was Love Still What i Consider
my Pay Grade, Pay Rate, Currency For Real

True Beyond Price Beyond Death Beyond Life

How We Come
to Be Married
to Love And Just
Give it Share it Care it
And HeaL it All Away New Now

to the Depths of the Ocean Free

Like An Elder Lady Did With A Blue
Hope Diamond Tossing it Over the Side of a Titanic
Boat in Memory of What is Most Real How We Love

It’s How Love Returns Best We Give it Away For Free Now With SMiLes
And True As They (me) Dance Sing Love is A Real Fountain of Youth As True i
Have Enough Evidence That Shows i’m Still Married to the Woman i Married (Love) Then

Anyway i Have No Idea Who Your Daughter or Son-Law is Yet if i Were THeir FRiEnD

(i iMaGiNE i am)

This is A Song

i Would

Sing For Them
For Nothing at
All in Return Yet to Give With SMiLes..:)
