Looking Ahead…

Looking Ahead …

 

Lonely country back roads

Driving aimlessly with no

destination in mind

 

The familiar yellow sign

indicates an upcoming

curve in the road

What lies around

that bend?

More of the same

Or …

A sudden surprise?

 

Regardless of what is

revealed on the other

side … adventure is

the best part of life …

Surprise

I love when I see things

in nature that are respected

 

A tree in the middle of a

country road that splits

to give it a right-or-way

 

A plant forcing its way through

pavement to reach the warming

sun and give beauty to everyone

 

A splash of pink bonnets in a

field of blue

My yard covered in yellow

primroses every night

blooming in the dark

 

A surprise for only me

to see or a surprise

far away for everyone

to enjoy

 

Nature is full of wonder

full of mysteries to

surprise and delight

each of us if we only

slow down and take

time to really see what

surrounds us daily

Clarity

Most of us go through life

thinking everything we

hear and see is the truth

that people are basic

good and never something

other than they seem

 

When that view of someone

suddenly…

unexpectedly…

we are not only surprised

to be blinded sided

But…

we are deeply hurt

Then…

Angered to the depths

of our soul …

Heartbroken to the point

there can never be

Trust in that person

 

When time and events

are reviewed we realize

the clues were there

day by day,

week by week,

And…

month by month

Which gives that

release of hurt and

pain and produces

the final moment of

CLARITY…

 

 

Fog …

Fog …

On this last day of

February – a leap day

the fog slid in quietly

not on little cat feet

as Frost tells us

but…

as ghosts floating

among the skeletal trees

 

This February leap day

began with a wide open

expanse of a stars in a

deep purple velvet sky

A heavy dew dripping

from the eaves like a

unseen spring rain

 

In the light of day

the ghosts arrive and

hide what I know will

be a spectacular blue

sky day … warm and

inviting us all outside

 

Days like this are the

true jewels of spring

hiding a surprise

of the day that will

be appreciated more

as the sun breaks through …

Surprise!

Hopes…
Dreams…
Promises…
All dashed
and broken
Lost…
 
I can no longer
Believe in anything
Can no longer
think anything 
good…
positive…
will happen 
in my life
 
I continually 
expect the
worst…
negative…
 
And…
 
Should something
positive happen
I am completely
Surprised!

Morning Surprise!

Morning Surprise!

Frog?…
Toad?…
I know not which
Not being versed in
the difference
 
Regardless..
This tiny creature was in
the outside water bowl
this morning
The bowl I keep at 
my backdoor for thirsty
neighborhood critters
 
It has been decades
since I have seen one
Decades…
since I lived far North
of where I now am
and a family of three
lived in the sand
around my front porch
 
Making their classic
sounds and catching
flies and dreaded
mosquitoes
Burrowing deep in
the sand to escape
the heat of the day 
to come out at 
twilight and grace
me their presence
 
A morning surprise…
Does this mean the
drought is ending?
Hopefully, this little
swimmer will not be 
a tasty snack for
a hungry barncat!
