Provance *

purple haze fades

in dawns soft light;

reveals fields of lavender

seen far and wide

embalmed all the air,

calming mind

with each breath

*Note: I’ve chosen for you a video of the lavender fields of Provence with a instrumental.

The smell of lavender wafting in a summer breeze, the gentle swaying of hillside olive groves, empty sun-swept corridors between picturesque stone buildings—Provence is a region full of sensory romance, rewarding travelers with its breathtaking vistas, mouthwatering cuisine, and small-town tranquility. The Romans once dominated this area, and many of the towns serve as visual historical accounts of France’s southwestern region, with remnants of Roman, Byzantine, medieval, and Renaissance structures incorporated into the modern construction of the upscale (but still quaint) towns. When you’ve had your fill of idyllic lanes in famous Aix-en-Provence and enjoyed St. Tropez’s legendary beaches, head for one of these smaller, lesser-known towns.

I found this whole article about setting music between the Rosetta Satellite and a comet fascinating and the many different visual art, film (amazing) and music that was inspired by this one project. To read, hear and see these I am posting the link, you won’t be disappointed.

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

Note: I hope that you enjoy my song choice which was originally recorded by Civil Twilight. However I chose this recording by Lauren King I wanted to use woman’s voice for this piece. She sings this song clearly and beautifully.

Always 🌎✌🏻💜 Be safe, take care.

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.

Always 🌎 ✌🏻 💙 Take care, be safe.
