Storm

Done waiting. Explosions of light and sound Furious sky Expelled her long winded complaint As though she had been waiting and devising A power pumping assertation Of her strength of conviction. .. or was it an expression Of joy? #storm#nature#perspective#

Friend

Always true Always real And so I imbue With all I can feel. So small in size She has the power To mesmerize. And keep me sane When my spirit wanes. #dog#love#

And Now

So unthinkingly I squashed the spider In the hallway As though she were an interloper. Usually, I grab with a tissue And then release it, saying out loud, “Go with life little one!” It was a momentary lapse Of consciousness. And now I have lost my venerability. #respect#Buddhism#

Easy

How easy it is To become ensconced in grief. So many layers of emotions, How liberating it would be to let it all go. Not there yet.. But going forward With introspection And Gratitude. #grief#

Indifferent deference

Consider this new vegetable. Kalettes. Insouciance Overcome By the lure Of culinary challenges. So the green diva Smiles sweet and waves me forward. Grow. Harvest. Consume. #gardening#challenge#reward#
