water wedged

i was thinking of a way to fly
with fine feathered wings

so clear the blue sky out there
where the wild wind nuzzles

untroubled and racing
a deluge of dreams deliver

sweet and kind, life jacket weary
life turned over baking the other side

inherit winds
blue believability
shifting deeper dim

umbrella blue mist
gracious gloom hovering hum
stray cloud stew and stir

childhood charm shifts
underneath umbrella warm
tied to thunder bolts

wet shoes excuses
stand still splash display
vowed voice uttering

become light joined jolt
driving west freeway folly
nearing night complete

storm clouds have moved in…. gone are the calm bluest of blue cloudless skies offering warmth and renewal… replaced by rainbow gray puffy fast moving clouds and then again i look and see streaming wispy clouds…. constant change…. find myself driving a lot lately…. east a-ways then heading west a-ways.. while driving hands on the wheel looking out beyond the clear windshield the clouds speak as they quickly pass…

holding onto you
fingertip finality
heartbeat heaven’s hush

sitting still sound stirs
magic waves her watchful wand
one butterfly blooms

tranquil transition
beneath a blade wrapped wonder
one bug being born

never saw moments
breaking glass stirs not a sound
another takes flight

Grass Texture

bursting clouds of yes
posting epiphany
harmonious moon

gathering goodwill
bunches and bundles abound
shadow dancing dark

steady drops of rain
pelting pretty rooftop sounds
dry desert cool wind

splash sincerity
drip dry manifestation
small nibble to taste

outside gray heavy storm clouds moved in overnight and buried the bluest sky. unexpectedly my early morning eye contemplates a random rain starting to fall softly, continuously. hours have passed and still the rain falls. rich with time i remain encased within a penetrating cascading curtain and the surrounding sound. steady it comes cold and wet. inside excitement tethered by winter escapes outside. hours afterwards hasn’t come home.

soft still freedom sounds
babbling baby bears fruit
blazing barriers

dawn quietly breaks awakening exhaustion one realizes the reality of being alive. the bombs continue nonstop. our daily routine has changed to survival. lives once held so carelessly have now changed to blood bones and please breathe. praying to our god for safety. leaving home we search for lost freedom to return. a candle burns bringing light and warmth to the darkest dark where there is no path.

Immature Common Yellowthroat Warbler (Geothlypis trichas)-8.jpg

observation flame
locked in light along a line
dark distant parade
quiet crackling chorus
firebreak fragments falling

thank you andree for the use of your beautiful bird photos!!

adrift in another life living in the southwest of australia.. the shadows of burning falling scent draws me out into night… conscious curiosity found myself watching the firebreaks burning fierce at night in the distance paddocks from one end of the horizon to the other seemingly creeping closer and closer.
