    “Shoulders” is such a powerful poem. Thank you for sharing it, as well as your deep thoughts concerning meaningful moments in our lives and how they can lead us down a “thread of revelation”!

      Thank you, Mike, for your comments. The way of love is powerful. It’s often the lone force behind art and writing.

    Embracing the power of love, I’ve transformed my once-lonely trail into a vibrant community where my children can freely gather and share love. Just as the sun sets without keeping score, may we too embrace the beauty of giving and receiving love, letting it illuminate our paths and guide us towards a brighter trail.

    What I know is love is a mysterious force, but as the divine reminds us, let love be the only debt we owe each other. Just as the barn stands strong with its weathered wood, may our love endure and flourish, creating a legacy of kindness that touches generations to come.

    I loved the smell of that old barn. I remember looking for kittens hidden around the hay bales and listening for their soft mewing sounds. We had to climb carefully around the feed grinder so we didn’t fall in.

      Yes, so many memories, Monica. When I was growing up, a lively dance hoedown was held in the hay loft. Friends had to climb a wooden ladder to get to the dance floor.

    When I reflect on my love trail, I know that it has shaped and defined who I am. I have lived a lifetime of love. I am a very blessed women. My love trail started with my parents, who loved me unconditionally. It continued with a loving husband, sons and siblings, whom I adore. Experiencing love again and again has always drawn the best from me. It has given me encouragement to seek new experiences and adventures even as I enter the later decades of my life. We are only on this earth for a short while, but as the writer said– love is eternal. I look forward to it with joy.
