The empty page...
Imagine, lines and shadows
as the blank page beckons you.
"Fill Me" with a thought, a dream;
expressions of your soul.
All that your heart desires to share;
your fears and joys or your dark despair.
Let go; leave them in ink upon this sheet.
So that, in filling the void of this empty page;
you might start anew.
Where acorns fall like rain...
In the thicket on the boundry line;
where field mice live protected lives
away from hawkish prying eyes
the world seemed safe and new.
The chip-monks chattered endlessly
about a legendary tree
across the field in the neighboring wood
where acorns fall like rain.
Grey squirrel, intently, listened in;
dreams of the winter months
with acorn hordes to tide him through,
swimming in his head.
Determined, now, to find the tree;
restock his acorn treasury
he journeyed forth from thicket home
in search of dreams across the field.
Circling high in the sun drenched sky
the red tail hawk in silence glides;
with piercing sharp eyes
always searching for motion and then...
A quick flash of grey
and the red tails away
with a dive and a splash
in the soft flaxen grass.
Then, up and away
to his high perch buffet
on the legendary oak
where the acorns fall like rain.
Oh, how nature loves to twist and turn all things,
sets them askew to confuse the eye.
Torments us with uncertainties;
rain, snow or sleet?
Tests us, tempts us constantly
with secrets of eternity
kept just beyond our grasp.
Each day's winding path,
a lesson in humility.
how we do so love straight lines.
What to do...
So, this monochromatic January is passing with glacial speed;
contributing to your dark depression
with white snow, grey skies and black trees.
New Years is just a memory;
Spring's taking its sweet time.
Oh, what to do in January; throw a stick on the fire,
settle back in your chair,
grab the biggest book off the shelf.
Well, no one will blame you,
harass or shame you,
They're all doing the same.
Keep in Touch!
