Looking out the picture windows
Blue sky clouds hitch a ride across the bay
In between the IV poles and plastic bags
Reclining people tell their tales
Black yarn crocheted hats
Warming blankets hide weariness
Brown colored liquids dripping
I close my eyes
I trouble you not
I’m grateful for that
My sisters, brothers, mother and father sought
I know you better now in sunlight
Graced by unbridled prayer and thought
Even in the coldest winter night
Our collected wings take flight
Bound together in our daily living
Stories told and retold by firelight
Sparks fly in new memories staying
Fresh footprints in our making
Families coming together
Exchange diamonds now shining
Times shared even in the coldest weather
History built with no sorrow together
Walking among hallowed roots tethered
To fields of ancient Irish heather
Feb 7, 2015
wind plumes fan out over Lake Ann
sparkling waters move
from south to north up the cove
creating an unending flow
unfrozen and stretching out
doors and windows wide open
come spirit winds
set me free
today is a turtle day
soft sides and hard backs
I lay my belly
in warm sunlight
soaking in the warmth
for long winter days
warm gulf sky winds
howled through the highland oaks
over the ozark ridge
traveling to someone’s home
and greeted as a hero
Writing Notes: Afternoon photo taken with my iPhone driving down Interstate 540 towards Bella Vista, AR.
Staccato fair weather clouds
Were but musical notes played
With quick and sharpened edges
Dancing over the day’s blue skies
Lines of sinuous musical notes
Framed my road’s horizon
And led me to an abrupt chorus refrain!
Glory be . . . .
Warm afternoon air
Warming my heart
I’m in a place where
I can say
I should be!
I know that
I am alone
Heart and soul
I leave the river
Sleeping on the horizon
Let me believe in you
Together I pray
In the long afternoon shadows
In the warm January air
In the day’s moon light
I wish you were here
Or I was there
A blog of life according to me.
