Reality shifts
As quickly as the wind
For what seems real
Is of our own perception

What is surely clear
Is that the beauty we behold
Or the hurdles in our way
Are invisible to others

And who is to judge
And who is to care
What shape or form
Our reality requires

My journey has continued and I realize it is time to begin to write the sequel. The words have been written and they call for my attention.

No more hesitation
No more excuses
The light has changed
And it’s time to write

Been holding back
On starting the sequel
Waiting for more responses
To the beginning

But the words are written
Requiring my attention
Needing my arrangement
To play their music

And so we will revisit
That special time
When I found love
And my journey continued

The Beach at Sunset

Stephen Kaufman : April 13, 2015 6:00 pm : SL Kaufman


From “Into My Life Unexpected…Learning To Love Again”

The beach at sunset
Colors of the day
Fading into darkness
Giving time to reflect

The waters calm
Soothing to the soul
As we retreat
To the loneliness of the evening

When I discarded
The past
And all its hurt
My journey could begin

And forgiveness was essential
For I finally understood that
I needn’t forgive them
But I had to forgive me

We Need to Dance

Stephen Kaufman : March 30, 2015 3:49 pm : SL Kaufman

We don’t need to perfect it
We don’t need to define it
We don’t need to project it
We don’t need to confine it

But when the music plays

Had been standing still
For too long
And couldn’t see tomorrow
Until now

As a calmness surrounds me
In a world of turmoil
For the sky is not falling
Despite its rumblings

On the water

Stephen Kaufman : March 16, 2015 3:18 pm : SL Kaufman

On the water at dusk
Marking paths often taken
With Paradise surrounding us
And beckoning us to its shores

A perfect relationship
Requires two imperfect people
To compliment each other

I Can’t Explain it

Stephen Kaufman : February 23, 2015 2:40 pm : SL Kaufman


From “Into my Life Unexpected…Finding Love”

I can’t explain it
I won’t even try
But we found each other
And everything has changed

Admired her from a distance
Not even imagining
She was looking at me
And waiting for the moment

“My two sons visited me over the long President’s Day holiday.

I am left with mixed emotions and I wrote about it:

My boys have flown home
Leaving me with a sadness
Of times missed with them
In the aftermath of divorce

They are grown now
Each on their own journey
Yet clearly carrying
Traits from their father

In many ways still strangers
Words often chosen carefully
But seeds sown years ago
Are now admired with pride
