saying no – July 23

7.23.2014

saying no, letting go

letting down or

honoring so

body wisdom, heart’s

command

heart’s direction

instead of sand.

mower world – July 18

 

7:18.2014

atop my mower world

beater, creeper, steeper

 

I demand nature to my

call

 

until the froglets flee

tiny, leaping, terrified

for their lives

 

and I count the cost

of living, and having

mercy.

 

I try so hard

not

to run over them.

purple bells – July 17

7.17.2014

purple bells, waving

wands, slender, strong

silent voiced

proclaiming with joy

a summer’s day.

missing poems – July 14

7.14.2014

missing poems

my soul strays

 

no unwinding of

the day, no peering

inside out

 

and snippets of

music wisp off

not to be grasped

again.

 

the vision that

feeds

needs its connector

to grace, hope,

more.

 

it’s a prayer.

she makes me smile – July 10

7.10.2014

she makes me smile

I can’t help it

when she turns

to me

 

and I see her face

something opens

within me

and there is a

grin

 

she makes me smile

like grace from the

hand of God

direct

 

a life lesson in faith

and love

and

laughter.

Prairie Home again again – July 7

7.7.2014

wonderful old new friends

Prairie Home again

again

 

voices tight, mellow

steel, emotions loosed

heaven’s feel.
