it was so easily

done

when He spoke

quietly,

as she obediently

sits

within desire opens,

growing

her restraint isn’t only

physical,

she is bound to His

spirit

her understanding, this

love

she knows it’s limits, are

unlimited

she opens her heart

willingly,

listening to its inner

whisperings.

Her submission is

trust,

never doubting

what He offers

in return is

an endless

chain,

their words.

*Note: As always for your musical enjoyment

The title is taken from a painting by Jack Vettriano, O.B.E., b.1951 – oil on canvas. I very much like his works. About his artistic style: Vettriano is a self-taught artist in drawing and perspective who manipulates paint in veiled glazes and meaningful shadows.[40] Vettriano’s style has been compared to those of Hopper and Sickert, and his scudded beaches to those of Boudin.[41] In many of his paintings, there is a hidden narrative, in enigmatic compositions, a starting point for dozens of short stories.[42] https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Vettriano

Boxes*

She knew

there was no room

for her.

The sincerity

of words written,

shattered emotion,

carried fragile lines.

Waiting

each day

adding another

promise penned

joining others.

Letters, cards

laid to rest

in boxes,

waiting.

Becoming fragile

with each

passing year,

waiting.

Life moved on

time stood still;

the boxes

waited.

Bound secretly

she was

that warm

summer night

to One.

her heart

waited,

in silence.

she gazed upon

dusks violet light,

knowing the

boxes

waited,

within them

she placed

her words,

Bound

Love

Promised

A Quiet Man *

I speak to

you sometimes

in those moments

before

sunset

or

sunrise,

I feel your closeness

within the sound

of the wind through

the trees.

~

I miss

your gentle quiet ways,

comfortable with silence;

your words of wisdom,

offered tenderly;

your ever present smile,

my own given in return;

your calm ice blue eyes,

that always saw my soul.

~

I was like an island,

surrounded by an

endless ocean

of love you held

in your heart

for me.

*Note: I was lucky to have this gentle man as my father.

This is a photo of my Dad at the age of 21 shortly after my parents were married. My Dad is looking directly into the lens he always did that. He looked people straight in the eye never looking away. As I got older I noticed it made people uncomfortable, sometimes they’d look away. I remember asking my Dad why that was. His response was two fold, either their lying or hiding something deeper they don’t want you to see.

On a side note: I have a photo of my Mother age 17 in the same setting, apparently taken the same day. however she is actually reading (she loved books) the book.

Wishing my fellow bloggers a Happy Fathers Day to the men who choose to be a Dad, Step Dad, Adopt, or Mentor a child, remember be kind, understanding you are molding who they’ll become.
