My Blue French Doors

Laying upon the sunlit floor
In front of my blue french doors
Framed by large window panes
Morning sun floods the room
Nestled against tan colored rugs
My head laid upon the softness of a red bathrobe
Wrapped around my shoulders
Warmth from the sun lingers
Soaking into my day
To just be me . . .
I on my side
Glance over
Folded hands
Tucked underneath my head
My hands
My fingers
My knuckles
My wrinkles
My lines
My eyes follow
Vast moving streams across my hands
Valleys & then mountain peaks
Traveling as a caravan across the plains
Transverse blue tones where once
Great oceans soared
Tides of unbelief
A new tsunami of unbridled grief
Shores eroded forever more
Can’t rebuild
Must shore up!
When did I grow so old?

A Robin’s Call

How many times
I listened to the new spring’s call
From the undertones of a robin’s notes?
How many times
Through out the ages
People walked these woods
Felt the same song?
How many words
Whispered here
Re-said again & again?
But no words
Can feel this way?
Do they?
Has it all been said
A thousand times
Before this day?

Leibster Blog Award
I am honored to receive the Liebster Blog Award from @humbirdstar.blogspot.com, Irene Golembo!

Thank you so much for this privilege Irene!  What a super surprise today —

A Treasured Gift and Award

The Liebster Blog Award originated in Germany and recognizes up-and-coming bloggers. It is meant to showcase those who have fewer than 200 followers. (Liebster means “favourite” or “dearest” in German.) This is done in the spirit of pay-it-forward. In accepting this award, the recipient agrees to:

1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks for the award and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Post the award on your blog.
4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the blogsphere – other bloggers.
5. And, best of all – have f
un and spread the karma.

It is really impossible to choose from the wealth of blogs out there, but I can only choose five so here goes, and these are in no particular order…
