Wondering – word of the day

I’m curious

Like a child

The awe of

Capturing beauty




The wonder of wondering

what is next

A New Challenge

Courageous trust within my sixth sense

Protect me

Shield me

Safe inside my make believe fence

The fences lines are blurred


My psyche, my soul

Impressed on me

good instinct

Sheltered, cherished within my fence

Do I dare to break out of my sanctuary

This does not cohere, nor make sense

Seal my fate,





Leave my comfort zone


Watch me walk through

My fenced gate

What is out there

I said yes to a new challenge

A Moment in Time

Can we go back

To that first embrace

You held me tightly

Searching for your answers

You gazed longingly into my face

At that moment in time,

You delved deep into my soul

Each of us captivated

That night was beautiful as we wildly

Lost control


Held a prisoner

in your eyes

That split second, minute, that hour

The only two people on earth

Bound in abandoned power

A memory so poignant

It was set in stone

A memory of passion and love

A tenderness never past known

That treasured moment

Of a time past

Yet timeless

The spell remains unbroken

Love remain ❤️

Commitment – how committed are you really?

Commitment – Loyalty

The first word that comes to mind when I think of the word commitment is loyalty.



A commitment to a task or job is to be responsible to or for. Make the decision to follow through. Support and fulfil obligations.



In a relationship it is bond built on openness, trust and love and your willingness to give yourself and your time to that person.



Definition of a committed relationship, serious or lasting romantic relationship with someone whether married or not. Showing love, giving declarations of love verbally and through gestures, showing respect, being honest, giving your trust and receiving trust, working together.



Is a relationship as committed if you have no joint asset’s or wedding/commitment vows together?


Are you really as connected and committed as the couple who do own joint assets or who are married.


I have been having this debate recently with friends, so your opinions would be valued.


If you are having problems within your current relationship, is it easier to walk away from a relationship if you don’t have that extra commitment? A contract of joint assets or a wedding certificate signed in ink on paper? Do you commit that little bit more? Try that little bit harder? Or is there something lacking there in their commitment to walk away so easy?



Can you walk away

The Rear View Mirror

She slowly released the clutch

She sat there

Eyes straight ahead

She longed to feel his touch



One more time



She hesitated

She had waited



For so long



Her eyes search the rear view mirror

He was no longer there




He left a long time ago



She released the clutch

Slowly driving away

Accepting sadly

She would no longer feel his touch
