Stop King! go no further.
See all the huge horns ?
They only behave for her
because she knows what happens,
before what happens, happens -

Poetry Bus, #1, 11/28/10

(Argument between self and Higher Power )

Here it is- Ample warmth and blue skies.
  Can we translate some of this, into ample coinage Please ?
Here: Creative and pleasant freedom-
    I've opened windows and doors...
Good friends, family.
    I do appreciate them thank you-
Health and energy-
    Wonderful, wonderful-
Peace and opportunity...
    I am passing on as much as possible; -may I ask you something ?
Intelligence- time,learning-
    Very helpful, Please-
Patience, forgiveness-
    Yes- Creator ?
Honesty, willingness-
    Please stop, a second or two !
Compassion, love-
    Indeed, I am so glad, HOW do I-
Generosity, kindness-
    So-you cannot listen-?
There, that will get you started...
    Too much raw material.
I'll be around-
   *SIGH*   -Love, laughter-
You too!

Alphabet of Gratitude

Someone suggested keeping an ongoing
gratitude list this month. I strung mine together
and would attempt tuning it
to lower range notes because it feels like
that would be appropriate...However
I do not have a keyboard- Happy Thanksgiving!

Ask ample abundance, best breath of beauty
combining compassion and courtesy
for delivering divine devotion
essential essences of empathy,
flowers of faith and forgiveness,
grateful growth and giving heartfelt hope and healing
Instruments of instinctual inspiration
and joy, joy, joy-

kneeling, kindness and knowing, living love and light
making the most of miracles,
noticing noble nighttime
opening opportunities often
perfection of possible promises
quite,quiet questions

reflecting, reading and reaching
sober in singing sunlight,
thankful thoughtful touches
urging the unknown and unexpected
weaving wonderful and wise
in youthful yeses of yearning,
with zoo's of zest from zero !

My dad shot that deer-
it hung in our den
but Mom hates it,
so he donated it
Eddy dressed it after school,
Hey-where are the sun glasses ?

Flash fiction 55 11/ 19/10

A large puffy hunk of bread,
the flow of sunlit clouds,
good firm handshake

An unexpected opportunity,
spontaneous laughter
uplifting music-

These images and a certainty arrived
as I lingered over a prayer
from a little book
a friend loaned me.

I had been reaching for
Gratitude; what I found
was an offering on Goodness.

He would stand in the relentless sun
for the artist only a second longer
it was so infernally hot
inside the wool poncho and leather boots

Flash fiction 55 11/12/10

Nemali stood
her long thin limbs
short red hair flat

from her brothers aim
a bucketful,
 sticky and stiff with
rank aggression
of spiritual pride

Drat, drat, drat! every step in the leaves made an echo.
Mummy was far ahead now. Nanna was right behind
as we trailed that wretched pony.

Flash Fiction 55, corner left from Bus ticket-10/5/10

Drinking water
from bending leaves
a coil and course
of throaty songs,  

tucked and folded
cool and long,
 passing over
wrapping 'round,

hammering silver
out and down
to find more voice in sea.

The Tractor Hums Too

In the curve of an eye
there go I
wandering down the gravel drive
Yet I am still
stuck at this mill
of wood splitting;

you watch from the door
of the barn
 wondering more
about rabbits and cages
than I.
