Saturday nothing

nothing like a lazy saturday morning
with my girl
freshly pressed strong cuppa in one hand
she sitting on my lap
as we gaze at the dancing leaves 
that mesmerize us with their shadows 
against the mighty woods
and she insists, 
tell me a story about your life


Blue memory

bouquets of blue daisies in the river
shades of cornflowers, soft skies and cool springs
burning wishes 
my prayers float into the sea, into the sun
this daughter's love for you
swells like the forever jersey ocean waves
reflected in my mind's eye
and every butterfly that stops by
stops me in my tracks
hello hope
