Renewal ~ Writers Island

What if...

you woke up one afternoon and found
that It was time...
to drop down into the earth...

and sleep...

like an earth~worm...
curled round itself...

spirit into matter
isn't always easy for me...

sometimes...
it is pure joy,
and purple,
shining like the sun...

or like the new grasses of our meadow...

Dsc02098

in the quarter~acre city lot
taking root...

Dsc02169

dancing with the wildflowers...

Dsc02103

all abandon thrown to the wind...

Dsc02183

lush and full of color...

Dsc02207

no matter how small...

Dsc02201

bearing fruit
of Dogwood Summer into Fall...

Dsc02189

before
the Winter rains
and cold
settles in...
like a blanket
covering the world
in deep sleep...

for sometimes...
life is
just rock hard,
like a lump
of clay
broken and full of cracks

Dsc02203

waiting...
not always so patiently...

yet dreaming of Spring,
renewal,
and always...
always...
the heart's desire...
