Outside My Window …

 

Early spring morning watching the fog

melt away to the dawn I wonder what

is in store today …

 

This my time …

The time of day to be a bit

Pensive …

Reflexive …

And …

Make plans … that always

change in the blink of an eye …

But …

That is my option …

my choice …

my  life …

going with the flow

knowing that if it

doesn’t happen today

there is always tomorrow

 

I continue to remember

the following Mary Oliver quote …

“…to learn something by

being nothing …”

 

I don’t think of myself as

‘nothing’ but the nothing

is a quiet observation that

opens not only my eyes

but my mind and my senses

 

When the fog lifts and the

mist has burned away will

be my time in nature …

my time to fuss over my

small garden

and be surprised with

new sprouts and newly

appearing veggies from

the day before

And …

Content with my life

I smile …

Dawn

Dawn Walk
Fog on the horizon
Pink tinge to the sky
 
My skin prickles
as mist feeling like
early frost touches me
 
A surprising coolness
settles in before the
morning begins to warm
 
Giving a hint of
what is yet to come
 
Autumn…

Morning Mist

Wandering through the
morning mist my tears
mingle with moisture
in the air
 
Crying…
both of us…
Me and
Nature
 
There is comfort
in the hiding…
release hidden by 
the mist 
allowing me…
allowing my heart…
allowing my soul…
time to reflect
And…
Begin to Heal

In the Mist

They are always there
Hiding in the mist
Some good…
Some bad…
Others painful…
Or
Pleasure…
 
We all have them
Some are known
by a few…
some by only one…
 
Yet…
 
They are always there…
A part of each of us
Hiding in the mist
Unseen in the shadows
 
Secrets…

Fog ~

Fog ~

The fog came
at sunrise
Shrouding the world
in its cloak of grey…
a comforting mist
settling around the
trees and along
the ground
 
Clouds you can
reach out and touch
Yet…
They slip through
your fingers like
the finest silk
 
Comforting…
Enclosing the world
in a soft blanket
until sun-kissed
the fog rises
revealing jewels
left behind
Sparkling in the
Early Morning sun
 
Jewels of Mist
riches to behold
as we begin
our day

Just Passing Through

Just Passing Through — 

was written a few days ago before I read the following poem written by the incredibly poet and singer/song writer Leonard Cohen.  I found the following poem only this morning when I picked up Leonard Cohen’s Poems and Songs and felt the connection of his poem to mine.  They are not remotely alike, yet have a similar feel.  ‘As the Mist Leaves No Scar’ was a new poem to me and I was surprised at the collective thought in this poem and mine.   I hope you enjoy both since this is an unusual posting style for me.

As The Mist Leaves No Scar

By Leonard Cohen
 
As the mist leaves no scar
On the dark green hill,
So my body leaves o scar
On you, nor ever will.
 
When wind and hawk’s encounter,
What remains to keep?
So you and I encounter,
The turn, then fall to sleep.
 
As many nights endure
Without a moon or star,
So will we endure
When one is gone and far
 
 
From page 22, Leonard Cohen:  Poems and Songs

Just Passing Through

You came to me
Unexpectedly…
A Surprise…
Yes, but…
Not really
This is just
your style
 
Your voice filled with
lust…
desire…
expectation…
anticipation…
 
And…
A question on your tongue…
Leaving the decision
once again…
to me.
 
A friend with
Benefits whose
company I do
Enjoy…
Neither of us
owing anything to
the other
except…
mutual pleasure
And
respect
 
One night of 
passion…
pleasure…
and pain…
You are gone…
Until the next
time you are 
Just Passing Through
