My Neighborhood

A MOMENT BETWEEN RAINS

*

Mud squishes,

Threads curly-Q ribbons ‘tween and above toes.

Feet rejoice in earth,

Assure my psyche of roots in eternal soil.

Ears drink bird-cries of joy.

Eyes chew on nature’s early fall blush below threatening skies.

Distance passes beneath churning legs,

Lungs fueled by moist healing air.

I pull my heel out of an unseen crawdad den

And say a silent apology to its unsuspecting resident.

Reluctantly,

I head for home,

Back to today.

But better than I was…

Renewed of spirit, energy, creativity.

Gratitude abounds…

You Make It Right

 

YOU MAKE IT RIGHT

Cold days feel warmer.

Rainy days shine a little sunnier.

Do I peer Keenly through rose-colored glasses?

Yes, I do so gladly, for your

heart is so pure,

so radiant

I need a filter!

No problem I encounter is

too small that you do not Share concern.

My children you regard with the

same care you shower

on your loves.

How could I have spent years

convinced I was wHole when I was mere half?

You bring to my life riches I never knew

could be given and given

with such generosity;

Generosity of

thought,

of spirit,

of soul,

of love.
