Between Clover and Dampened Earth

The Farmer's Field Today I walk With my lover, My footstep light, Careful Against the dewy ground, His steps Strong. Steady. Morning mist, Ethereal, Magical, Curls around us, Secretive. Dreamy. And it is only He and I, There in the fog. We walk without words, Our footsteps Our breath Make soft sounds, Yet the earth … Continue reading Between Clover and Dampened Earth

Second Chances

Slated for the Shadows

  If I lay my hand
Flat against the surface,
Palm down
fingers dipping in the salty wetness,
I can almost feel her moving.

And if I hold my face to the wind
I can almost feel the 
wisp, the whiff, her breath
Against my cheek,
tiny droplets fine and silky.

I can hear her breathe,
See her disrupt the
Silver surface and
I can watch the … Continue reading Slated for the Shadows

And it is hard For me to fathom As I rest my cheek Against the smooth Frosted skin of The birch That inside - -Somewhere … Continue reading Woodland White

A Touch of Perfect

This was a fun prompt!  Just FYI, my husband is NOT the target of my anger!  Nor is anyone I love.  Morale is just so low where I work and this is how I felt after a meeting last night.  I could not get out it of my head (prompt words: symphony, oasis, convenient, A … Continue reading A Touch of Perfect

The Storm Will End

Reflection: A Poem

Prompt: Reflection In this wet and wondrous world Where rain becomes Part of who we are, Tall trees are mirrored On glassy lakes. And reeds reflect in pockets of muskeg. The upsidedowness Of a mountain Or a boat On a windless ocean, A yellow daisy on a morning wet deck, A child's face Looks back … Continue reading Reflection: A Poem
