Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

Photo by Shelby Miller on Unsplash

Love Marks the Spot

I stitch each memory in strands of gold into my heart glowing in pink snow as it hits the window pane the day you were born. 

Pensive, ethereal , bright as the diamond you wear on your hand with indigo blue, rock solid in all that you do.  

The room stood still as you entered the room just like now as you walk down the aisle in your gown. 

Life, never the same by your stamp of approval.

Touched by an angel, your essence so pure, each methodical word filled with intention and choice defines you.  

My heart beat for you for a time as I held you in my womb and then my arms,

Each coo and kiss filled my heart and still does with such wonder.

Time moves swiftly as I recall all of your firsts, talking in sentences, dropping you off on your first day of school, t-ball, ice skating, basketball, dance lessons……the list goes on and on.  

Then holding your hand and letting it go when you left home and made your mark on the world with your pink hue that turns everything to gold.

Each strand of your essence is woven through my heart and soul, together no matter the distance.

A beautiful bride, daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, friend and now wife.

The world is your oyster as you travel the world together as husband and wife, hand in hand two puzzle pieces walking hand in hand as you travel through life.


Happy Fri-Yay Funday Everyone,

Pictures say 1,000 words so I thought I would just leave you with those today so you can feel the love behind the words. One of the biggest take homes from this wedding and couple of my daughter and son in law, is that you can feel their love when you look at them interact together. Whoever is in their presence always says takes notice. It truly is magical in every sense of the word ~ a love story straight out of the fairy tale books, we all hope to find.

With that said, this couple has taken no short cuts in examining each others strengths and shortcomings, work on issues that arise and continue to do the daily work to love each other unconditionally, always clearing the air and finding the best in each other.

It is as though they just meant for the first time but it’s been 14 years that they have been together. We can all learn a lot from them. When he told me he wanted to “marry my daughter” I just said “are you sure you want to rush into anything?” 🀣❣️ With a chuckle and a hug I gave him my approval and blessings.

If we could all remember these first moments and hold on to the love we felt and work on that each and everyday more marriages would have a better chance of realizing this spiritual union of unconditional love.

The morning of getting ready….

One the wedding day…

Lot’s of pictures I know and lots more I couldn’t transfer from heic to jpeg I wanted to add today. I think they changed something so I couldn’t get my usual transfer to work.

And this was a moment I will never forget and am most grateful to my husband for. It truly touched me deeply. Some of you may have seen it on my Instagram story but I just had to share it with you here as well.

I’m elated to tell you that I won Publication of the Month on Spillwords Press, New York. Thank you to Spillwords for the nomination and to all of you. It is such an honor and I am truly blessed by all of you for the time you took to vote for my poem Memories of You. If you missed it you can read it here. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Have a wonderful Fri-Yay and weekending. Thank you for sharing in the love of the day and all of your lovely wishes you have been so gracious to give through the build up of this day. I am off to the lake for the first time in a year for some R & R. The happy couple is in Africa right now having an amazing time. I wanted to share some of their photos but they are in heic too so I can’t upload them.

Love and Blessings Always,

πŸ’—

Cindy

SMiles Dear Cindy One Sure Sign A Wedding Will Make
A Marriage That Lasts is Good Humor When There is
A Wardrobe Malfunction When the Bride is Dancing

With Her Father Hehe It Made Your Recent

Award Winning Published Poem

Even More Appropriate Thanks Goodness
The Straps That Came Off Were Mostly Cosmetic

With Additional Underlying Support So Glad to Hear They

Have Been Together 14 Years As i’ve Seen Too Many ‘Royal
Weddings’ End in Divorce Way too Soon Like my Second Stepmother’s
(Yes i Had more than one) Husband Whose Daughter Waited Many Years
For Marriage As He Had to Go into Much Debt for Her Wedding That my Second Stepmother
Eventually Paid For As He Died Not too Long After That And Yeah the Marriage Lasted A Year

(He Was A Foreign Service Diplomat; Nope, He Surely Wasn’t Raised in A Trailer Hehe)

And Of Course one of the Main Reasons Marriages Don’t Last is the Expectations of Fairy
Tale Like Love And Folks Not Willing to Forgive The Transgressions of Humanity Such

A SHaDoWeD
Species No Matter
What the Pomp And
Circumstance Is We Create

Oh By The Way the Closest Parts
of Your Family Look Stunning Absolutely
Presidential And i Don’t Mean That With A Cuss
Word That Starts With An Orange T Hehe As That

Would Ruin Any Ricky Nelson Garden Party Haha Kinda
Like me Who Showed Up at my 40th Year Class Reunion
in 2018 With Tie Dyed Led Zeppelin Shirt With the Fallen Angel
Back From 1975 And Shorts of Course As That Didn’t Warrant Pants to me…

Happy to See Everyone Dancing So Joyfully And Free in the YouTube Short
You Presented of the Whole Get Together They Really Let Loose And Yes

That’s One Place i would Have Fit in From A Distance at Least as i have
too Many Moving Parts When i Dance for Folks to Get too Close to Hehe

Anyway my Wife Said Poor Cindy She Looks So Red-Eyed and Tired
They Shouldn’t Have Put Her Through All that Stress as She imagined

All of What it Would Take to make a ‘Grammy’ Wedding Presentation
Like This Yet of Course Both me And Her Were Raised in A Metal

Trailer And Her Earliest Memory There Was Her Stepfather in
His Boxer Shorts and T-Shirt Standing Over Her Bed With A
Knife As He Used to Walk in Circles Out in the Yard And Swore

He Knew Queen Elizabeth So That’s Why They Ran Away From
Georgia on the ‘Midnight Train’ To Florida And The Story Carried
On As They Were So Poor She had to Climb 40 Foot Trees Over Looking
the Have’s of the Neighborhood to Pick Some Moist Fruit As There was no
Food or Water or Electricity in Their Home in this Rich Country of the World

And True They Weren’t Even Immigrants They Escaped From Georgia
Without Even Tying A Yellow Ribbon Around An Oak Tree It Was More

Like the Devil Went Down
to Georgia And They Escaped
And That’s About ‘IT’ in A Nutshell indeed…

(She Doesn’t Even Need to Celebrate Halloween
As She Already Did it For Real Just Like ‘The Shining’)

The Thing is it Doesn’t Really Take Much to make my
Wife Happy And Really It’s even less for me practically
Naked Enough Whole Complete Yet True Community Standards

Require that i at Least Wear Tye Died Shirts and Shorts At Garden Party’s Indeed
At the 10 Year Re-Union i Was the Most Uptight Person There Same At the 20 Year
Reunion At 40 there was no one on Earth More Relaxed Than me as i Was the Devil

Who Got Out
of Hell in Florida…

Fallen Angel Indeed
Oh to Wear Wings Again…

Yet It’s True A Real Fairy Tale
Happened out of DarK iNto Light

Oldest Story Ever Beauty and The Beast
And That Damned Sure Still Holds True New
Now FuLLY iLLuSTRaTED As i Do it For Real Too…

Thanks For Sharing Dear Cindy it is the Art We BRing DarK Thru
LiGHT That Resurrects Feelings and Sense of Real Life that is the Best…

Indeed Celebrate
Every Wardrobe
Malfunction in
Life With Zest in Gusto True

Always BreaKinG the Formalities
Down to Essence of BREaTHiNG
PeaceFuL LoVinG LiVinG Faith For Real…

i Do Feel And Sense That In All The Dance You Shared
Looking Past All the Formalities Thank God Dear FRiEnD..:)
