Love is in the air

I love the setting sun

I love watching these banshees have fun

I love the silence of a snowy night

I love planning and packing before taking flight

I love my toes in the sand

I love crashing waves at the end of land

I love the sound of rain on my metal roof

I love the days when strife goes “Poof!”

I love paddling a river so agitated

I love the adrenaline that flows unabated

I love my old truck, well-used and worn

I love that it’s trusty, even during Winter’s scorn

I love hiking unfollowed trails

I love the mountains, they’re good for what ails

I love surfing, the ocean, and beach

I love the taste of a fresh-picked peach

I love music, for my soul it’s like food

I love that it helps me find my groove

I love tie-dye and the Dead

I love Sunday mornings in bed

I love where I live, able to touch every star in the sky

I love my camera, translating my mind’s eye

I love all of this, and so much more

I love that I’m not love poor

I love my world and living this life

But most of all

I love the blessings of these boys and my wife

Yes, to all you serious writers out here, I realize this is a feeble try

I’m not a writer, this I can’t deny

Snickers and criticism I’ll choose to ignore

Today I’m about love, and that which I adore


My songs of the day are:

“Love You Babe” by Jason Collette

“The Life You Chose” by Jason Isbell

“Like The Dream of It” by Brooke Anibale

“Nirvana” by Squeeze

“Everybody Needs Love” by The Driveby Truckers

“Victim of Love” by The Eagles

“Promised Land” by The Holmes Brothers

“Heard It In A Love Song” by The Marshall Tucker Band
