the night owl

Wednesday, January 30th 2008

my husband is a night person. he works nights and loves to stay up until 4:00 am most nights. most of the year he is able to get up and play golf at 9:00 am with a short nap later in the day. after a few days of that routine, he usually crashes and gets a good 9 to 10 hour sleep.

one good day

Tuesday, January 29th 2008

lost in the haze
of a deep grey sky
i found myself wondering
how and why

i carry a burden
that's unique to me
i face some challenges
that are mine only

like the snowflakes
tumbling to the ground
no two alike
have ever been found

for the paths we walk

and ours to stumble
when the day is done

but when we stumble
and this is the key
there is always someone
on bended knee
