Where Everything Good Happened

Grateful appreciation to the exquisitely talented photographer and blog author at One Letter Up, for permitting me to use her photo of the gazebo/reflection for my inspiration.  Click the link to visit her and see her incredible collection.  Thanks muchly! 💖

It was where everything happened

Falling into love in autumn ‘mid

Crispy rusted leaves whispering

On nippy breezes…

‘Icicle-promise’ confidences shared

As winter’s mirror pond blurred with

Skim of shimmered crystal slivers

Lightest snow flakes beginning

To swirl, luminesce upon our hair…

Spring revelry, green branches’ fast-

Budding blooms, and paralleling

Passion stirred to humid frenzy

Thousand stolen kisses’ fragrant

Fresh petals… Until night, perfect

Summer night of secret-sacred

Forever vows, made in gazebo with

Only our reflections as witnesses…


Night of mystic moonlight’s soft

Radiance lingering… We danced

To tinkling stars’ songs, silver

Wind chimes, calling ourselves

Infinitely blessed…regardless

How little time we had left

Crystalline Respite

Gratitude to the author of One Letter Up, who graciously allowed me to use her photography once more as a poetry prompt.  It is a collaboration I’m enjoying immensely.  Please click the link for all her posts and photos, and leave her a friendly comment: https://oneletterup.com/2020/02/16/ice-map/

Suddenly beheld

Wonderland for weary souls

Respite crystalline

As old-guy-Winter plods on

Till obliged to yield to spring
