Home

People flock to your kind and patient aura… like butterflies that flit around in the sun landing only in places where they feel safe and nourished.

People, animals…it’s just something about you.

You’ve long been that space for me.

From the moment I heard your voice there was comfort and recognition.

It took me a little time to process those feelings…

You were home! I was home!

Home will always be wherever I’m with you.

For Noelle

Red Dragon Fire

I haven’t always seen you…

You’re so adept at flying under the radar.

I suspect you get that from your mom.

I’m so proud of the man you have grown into and I’m a little shocked sometimes at the glimpses I see of myself in your character.

Your flame is constant, steady and often playfully mischievous with a slight hint of underlying sadness.

Perhaps at thirty you’ve already seen and know too much?

Many underestimate you…at their own peril I suspect, and I find that refreshing.

You have surprised me in the best of ways with candor, insight, warmth, and wisdom beyond your years.

I wish you a long life filled with happiness. When life’s struggles find you, I hope they only serve to forge your armor stronger and when faced with your enemies may your red dragon hellfire rain down on and incinerate them accordingly. 😉

(For Jeremy)

Aura of Gold

Strands of wheat fly

In the five o’clock breeze

Flecks of amber and emerald

Delight in nature’s orchestration

Even the sinking sun lingers

to bear witness…

Arm in arm we press forward

Faces flushed, hearts racing

Inside your pocket

Our fingers interlace

And your October smile

Gives autumn’s brilliance

A whole new light

It is here I revel

My path perfectly illuminated

Forever basking in your

Aura of gold

(For Noelle)
