The Day I Wed My Kids’ Step-Mom

Down the seawall in Galveston

down Broadway Boulevard’s hundred year old oaks

before Ike torn them down –

down to the courthouse

with our three kids

– in tow –


were mine and your little one.

But they were all, so little, then, weren’t they…



with their own children now.

And we heard “Going to the


playing in our Chevy Chevette

grins spreading stars ‘cross our eyes as we sang it.

The soft Galveston air


but not yet hot.

The parking was easy then too.

And we’d jumped into doing it, it seemed –

marrying, even

if nearly a year and a half after we’d first pretended not to

have noticed each other.


there’s no denying it now.

I married you then, and I’d marry you now.

And maybe remember, again, it wasn’t just the words in the song –

it was the music in the car and our children in the back seat

and the wind in the windows and all the wishes

we’ve worked to make true.

Happy Anniversary

dVersePoets OpenLinkNight, # 94, Hosted by Grace

I’ve linked my new poem to a great site for poets, dVersePoets.

OpenLinkNight provides an open prompt once a week for poets to post on any subject.  A few suggestions, with an example in their posting, are spring, or a poem for National Poetry Month (April).

For spring, I do have an springtime Austin Texas photopoem with images of the Hike & Bike Trail.

But this poem, if you’ve had a chance to read it, is an anniversary poem to my wife, Sheila. 😉


May 1st – Happy 32nd Anniversary to Sheila 😉

Below are some nice memories of past posts where I could feature you, or you inspired me.

Muchas gracias, it’s been a journey that’s filled (over-flowed? 😉 ) my life.

  1. Beautiful, Adan! You know I’m a sucker for love! Happy anniversary!
    I love that old song, too!

    Spring is here,
    the sky is blue.
    Whoa! the birds all sing as if they knew.
    Today’s the day, we’ll say, “I do”
    and we’ll never be lonely anymore.
