Fun…Lost

Fun…Lost

When friendships are

more work than fun

what is the next road?

 

Do you continue…

Work harder…

Try more…

Care deeper…

 

Or…

 

Do you close the door

Quietly walk away

Leaving it slightly ajar

In the event

Fun returns…

Winter Magic

There is a strange silence

in falling snow like living

inside a cotton ball

 

Outside the absence of

sound is comforting

like being cradled

in a mother’s arms

 

Inside the sound is so

different …

Similar to wearing

ear muffs of childhood

 

I am sure there is

a scientific explanation

for the silence of

falling snow

But…

To me it is only

Winter Magic…

Connection

Leave a comment

Connection

Some places…

Some people…

Stand out in my

mind like holy things

 

Oh…

I don’t put them up

on a pedestal to be

worshiped

I learned that lesson

long ago

 

Nothing and no one

will ever be worshiped

by me

 

Holy to me is

a point of

reverence…

a spiritual thing…

Something or someone

that speaks to my soul

Reaching me on a

new level

 

If I connect life

is easy…

laid back…

peaceful…

 

If I do not

life dissolves

into chaos

Words…

Leave a comment

Words…

Sometimes I sit reading…

doing dishes…

folding clothes…

And…

The words start

 

Words that MUST

be captured

Words that find a

white space and crawl

on their own from

my pen…

taking control of my

hand and mind

until they run that

particular course…

 

Looking back at

random journals or

previous blog posts

I sometimes don’t

recognize the

words as my own

 

Because…

 

Words have a life and

mind of their own

and demand to be

released

Sometimes…

in multi-colors

across white pages…

Forgotten…

Forgotten

Out of sight…

Out of mind…

 

Totally ignored…

Forgotten…

Not even considered…

No thoughts…

 

This has been let go

But…

The hurt is deeper

than I want to admit

So…

this is where

Caring

And…

Concern…

have gotten me

in my life

 

Always…

Forgotten…

Moon Magic

Moon Magic

Last night the Moon

was magic hanging

in the Western sky

like an upturned

bowl catching stars

Venus and Mars were

putting on their show

to the left

 

Breathtaking in its

Beauty…

Leaving me speechless

as I could not take

my eyes off the sky

 

Jupiter in the Eastern

sky jealous of the Moon

but beautiful in its

own brilliance

 

Tonight the Moon is

just as beautiful

But…

The juxtaposition

of it with the planets

is not the same and

the magic is not

there from last night

 

As I get older the night

sky holds mystery and

awe for me — the mystery

of our Universe and the

ever-changing panorama

of the night sky

Black Moon

Black Moon

I am so blessed to live

in rural Texas

 

I am also blessed

to be able to walk

freely every day

before dawn when

the sky is deep blue

and decorated

with stars

 

Then…

 

Again in early evening

just at full dark when

the stars again come

out to decorate the

black velvet sky

above me

 

Tonight…

A night of magic…

the night of a

SUPER New Moon…

Called The Black Moon…

blessed me with a sight

that is rare even for me

in the country

 

Tonight the heavens

are their deepest black

Stars hanging high and

far away so as not to

disturb the darkness

of the Black Moon

 

Turning for home on an

unlit stretch of road

my breath was taken away

 

Above me…

In front of me…

Surrounding me…

A rare glimpse of

the Milky Way

Hanging there in

the black velvet night

Not in its full glory

because there is still

too much light in my

little rural town

 

But…

 

There in the sky

letting me know

in the thousands of

Galaxies hanging there

We…

Are Not Alone…

Tease

Tease

Snow yesterday

Cold North wind

Winter…

 

Today…

Spring in the air

Brilliant sunny skies

Warm South wind

 

We are being

Teased by Spring

Again…

Dew Drops …

Dew Drops…

So many losses

Family…

Friends…

To one nasty disease

Cancer…

 

When will it all end?

A cure…

It is just around the

corner if the powers

that be would only

open their eyes

 

Until then…

I am resolved to

look to the sky and

count my losses

in diamonds…

Stars…

like dew drops

shining in the early

morning light…

Garrett’s Sweet

When I was a child

Genteel Southern ladies

did not smoke…

They dipped Garrett’s

Sweet Snuff

 

My aunt in South Alabama

and our family friend in

Texas both dipped

Each had their own method

My aunt used a sweet gum twig

she called a ‘toothbrush’

And…

our friend put a tiny pinch

in her cheek

 

As a child I found this

fascinating

But…

Never wanted to try it…

seemed way too

messy to me…
