The Sky Floats


The Sky Floats

Some days, the sun shares its home.
Shines so the sky floats on the lake.
At first, the sight is disorienting.
The world seems upside-down.
Then, I understand the gift--a
close-up of something so distant,
time spent within reach of
the unreachable.
I love the days when the sky
floats and always send the sun
a thank-you note.

Exposure


Exposure

In winter, the branches
are no longer undercover.
They show us their length,
width, scars, breaks.
They let us see what
they reach for and
if they intertwine
with one another.
All they are is exposed.

The Seed Pod


The Seed Pod

Only the shell remains.
Once, it was full of seeds.
It sent them out to grow on their own.
Now, the pod is empty, dried out
but still holding onto the stem.
It has served its purpose and
will yield nothing more.
That will be left to others.

Wonderland


Wonderland

I used to dream
of wonderland.
It was always
far away.

Then, I stopped to
watch the sunrise,
and later, the sunset.
I noticed the bees
and the butterflies
sharing the flowers.
I found a heron in
the park and followed
as it took a walk.

I learned that wonder-
land isn't one place.
I create it with what
I take the time to see
in a given space.

May you enjoy the wonders of the holidays wherever you are and however you celebrate. Thank you for stopping by, This is my last post of 2019. The next post will be January 7, 2020.
