pictures of you I’ve taken
how many times we’ve walked
down our street — in sun
and snow — on our way
to coffee and conversation
yet you still steal my heart
in the simplest of ways
the singlest of frames
the hope and ache
of a lifetime caught
in this crystal moment
and me right behind you
out in the storm and
on our way to everything
P. S. — There’s a new recipe.
Awwww … And I love it that you are a chef who married a woman named after a spice. Your life shall always be flavored by her.
What a love story you two have. So happy for both of you. Still. After all these years.
I love your poem, and I love you!
A lovely tribute to a beautiful lady!
You two share a beautiful love. I wish more couples could enjoy life as you two do
May God continue to bless and keep you both. Wishing you the sweetest and most tender of Valentine’s days.
Ginger is one of my favorites. Spices and names. I worked once for a very special interim pastor named Ginger and she changed my heart and life. When I make my own ginger cookies, I often use three kinds of ginger (if I have them all) plus black pepper. I do think the most interesting and happy heat comes from the fresh ginger. If your love is anything like THAT, you’re so blessed. Happy day.
P.S. Ginger’s good for lots of things — like digestion. That’s cool, too. Who wants to get their “bowels in an uproar,” as my late-great mom used to say.
