I Write Her

Untitled

There’s a substantive intimacy in nature. It’s filling.
The smell of earth satisfying and rejuvenating.

The wind enveloping you in its invisible caress.
Touching without, healing within.

Hello, beautiful bird on a sunny day!
Seeing you brings me joy and a smile.

The smile of someone engaged.

I feel my best friend at that moment.
And I miss her.

It’s me looking through her eyes, but she’s not there.
For a moment I could cry.

From her, I learned the wisdom of these significant bits of the day.

She’d be in that moment with me graciously approving
and being grateful for the beauty of our surroundings.

My friend would love you too, beautiful bird.

And I love her.

Reblog – Old School

Excellent take on the current climate issues. Mother Nature will win.

The Twisting Tail

I’ve lived through plagues
Seen my fair share of crusades
I’m Old School comrades

I’ve seen ice ages come and go
Friend to mammoth and eskimo
I’m Old School bro

I saw the dinosaurs have their day
Until a meteor paved their way
I’m Old School compadre

I saw a land without fire
Without man’s desire
I’m Old School squire

I stood by in the time of the witch
Before humanity flipped the first switch
I’m Old School bitch

I knew the price before money
I recall the primordial ooze being runny
I’m Old School honey

I’ve seen what humans can create
And how it’s lead to the current state
I’m Old School mate

Like all before, I will survive your rule
I’m the earth, I’m nobodies fool
I’m forever, I’m Old School

Just Keep It Up

Inspired by Reena’s Exploration Challenge – 7/22/21 & Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Soaring

protestors up in arms fighting the good fight
light and air pollution
large garbage patches dotting our oceans
space debris circulating mother earth

astronauts soaring above looking down
witnessing it all, seeing clearly
most of the people residing here
lacking demonstrable empathy

the inhabitants shortsighting their future
i say let it burn
go further into destruction
finish the job

mother will heal when we are gone

Full Lips

full lips inspiring
inspiring delicious thoughts
thoughts of intimate moments
moments richly intertwining
intertwining of limbs
limbs covered in moisture
moisture filled kisses
kisses following illogical paths
paths filled with excitement
excitement in those full lips

The Roar Of Peace

my frazzled soul
lightens
       then leans 
into the beckoning of birdsong
drawing me in further

all my senses imbibe deeply
the multitude of earthtones
and various shades of green
the rapid flow of moisture
beguiling, mesmerizing 

the rush of the river
grounds my senses
replaces tension with ease
and fills every pore of me
with enchantment  

i am nourished...

Peace On The Beach

Inspired by Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie – Saturday Mix

I hope I don’t expire before I get to soar on the ziplines again. And run down the coastline in the early morning saying hello to the rising sun. My dearest Happy Place I hope to see you again soon!

Hummingbird Feeder

Each morning, I gaze outside
hoping to catch a glimpse
of a flitty, flighty little bird
suckling the prepared nectar
from the red ring
of the plastic container
swaying in the gentle breeze.

You see, I prepared
this favorite cocktail
of the hummingbirds
hoping to lure them
into my sightline
for a distraction
from the day to day drudgery.

What a smile it would bring,
seeing these little creatures
exhaustively hanging in mid-air,
getting their fill while latched on
to this container of sweet sustenance.
But alas, none have caught the scent,
and I continue to wait each morning.
