June 24th-30th, 2013

June 24th, 2013

Tonight clouds concealed her beautiful face
but last night~ oh how she glowed
full and perfect she rose into a velvet sky
tree tops reaching as if to embrace her
she rose higher~ higher yet~ spilling silver
annoiting woodlands and garden
silently we stood~mesmerized by her beauty

Summer Rain
fine steady mist moistening the air
brief respite from hot days
we sip tea ~hands wrapped around our mugs
gazing out at the cool morning
filled with gratitude for this rare gift
Summer Rain

Tender slices of Apricot Kuchen
fresh from the oven
jaunty dollop of
whipped cream adorning it
melting delicately on the tongue

Cowboy's line shack or old homestead
how many years have you endured?
Nestled beneath towering power lines
timeless reminder of a not so distant past
no doubt your occupants read by lantern light
and rode to town for necessities.

Early morning
I stand quietly
Birdsong welcomes the rising sun
Little Fox runs wild across the creek
I breathe
dark dream's weight lifts
flies away on sun-kissed wings
I smile

Once mighty oak
casts it's shadow
into the creek
reduced in size
yet still alive
does it see the change
or does tree memory
complete the shadow
to make it whole again

Six Word Saturday
Cool morning start
Extreme heat wins
Our garden
green oasis
cool illusion

June 30th, 2013

Doing dishes, hands draw patterns
with soapy sponge, erasing meals
I daydream while Ming winds silky
figure eights around my legs~ so soft
blissfully purring~ a quiet moment
before her endless quest of exploring
all things UP resumes once again
