Re: Baptism at Altamont

Hi lonndubh… I really enjoyed ‘Baptism at Altamont’, especially these lines and their positioning within the poem: Stories of hundreds of years Seeping in at my back Laughter of new love… and the long drawn out exhale, felt overall when reading these lines: Emptiness Finally Thankfully From the insi...

Re: Why Not?

Grey-brown, golden, brick-red, white, and tinges of cinnamon too… The morning caught me listening to the musical cheery, cheeriup, cheerio, cheeryip whistle of a robin – sounding of spring. Drawing in, each breath is barely audible as the robin skips a quarter of an inch or so, here and there. Quick...

Re: Why Not?

Gazing at me, a ladybug, its presence palpable as we stood side by side in the green of the forest. The moment, a recognition of sorts, for both of us as we shopped for something to wear… a smile perhaps amid the silence of the day. Overhead an eagle spoke. Picking up its piercing sound – the wind. ...

Re: Why Not?

Diane, thank you for your kind words. No longer forward nor behind I look in hope or fear; But, grateful, take the good I find, The best of now and here. – John Greenleaf Whittier ..... They say gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. :razz:

Cate writes: Midnight Blue – I had forgotten this song. It was nice to hear it again. Cate, I suppose over the years I've held this song somewhere in the back of my mind, and then I bumped into it again, just the other day… .....

The morning broke –
into a lovely melody.

And the day
continued
well –
into the evening.

Ceasing temporarily, reflecting on the ledge of this song. Finding release, in the letting go. Honouring acknowledged emotions. Taking note their perfect timing. Blissful, this repose – her saving grace. ..... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vaABi-Pkr8&feature=fvw Please, let the music play…

Re: Why Not?

She's paused here (caught up as she is in a metaphorical stretch of time), to peruse things – things that seemingly stay where they are, where they always have been, where nothing moves and all is soundless – where not even the faintest echo willingly nods, or winks an eye. Meanwhile, the wind e x h...

Re: Why Not?

Roaming about and consumed, she turns and looks once again out over the ocean, as though lost in a moment of transience. It's in that silence that the stilted formalities of things acquiesce. In a somewhat unhurried, peaceful well-choreographed mood, amidst this air that is now alive with song, she ...

Re: Why Not?

The impressions of a thought, prompted by the summoned mind, at times wills the pen to write. Interweaved histories of experience bubble up to the surface of things, within the quiet day-to-day dayness of one’s introspections. As fog, that once trailed the story’s plot, lifts, one’s penchant for int...

Re: Why Not?

And then I see it, a storm, hesitating off in the distance, like an inseparable shadow in pause. Caught here shivering, the brute force of the wind finds me unawares and sneaks up from behind requisitioning what feels like a bucket full of water that soaks me all over, my entire tiny frame. Suddenly...

Re: Were we Leaves .... Poem for an Injured Friend

Go Down, Moses, so sorry to hear about your dear friend… Writing through emotions helps us process them — especially when we are disquieted within, thinking of the adversities facing a loved one. Thank you for sharing your thoughts in the form of your beautiful poem. Were We Leaves Were we leaves, I...

Re: Why Not?

Inside, dreamed-up sleep combines with the dormancy of these hours, where each lapping minute works well to calm the senses, here in this middle of nowhere. Just as I'm turning my face to the glorious sun, round and whole in its shine of white, flooding this ambiguous morning, a poetic voice offers ...
