where the writers are
Watching the Day

I sit on a white porcelain plate
Ten times the size of my body.
It spins slowly through the sky.

As I sit on the edge, I see trails
in the hills, the many lanes the deer
have carved across a white sky.

With my eyes, body, and
soul, I absorb nature’s strength this
Monday morning. I see the great Buck,
cautiously leading his family in the hills.
His tail twirls, his head is low as he nibbles on
some treat he has found. He gives his head
A shake, his antlers move from side to side.

He moves along. His strong stance and majestic antlers
Trail behind. The large spinning plate
Swooshes back, through the trees, brought to rest.

Thanks, m. I'm glad it

Thanks, m. I'm glad it suited your mood on that day. Right now, it looks like the sky can use a little color. I may need to gather a few things in a wicker basket and go for another ride...

p.s. Thanks for inspiring me to read "We the Living." I am loving it! It was the right start into Rand's fiction. Thank you so much. Am enjoying "Travels with Charley" too. :)

What a creative vantage

What a creative vantage point you have chosen here, Rebb. Very simple, elegant.
I thought of your grandmother and her origins and saw her contemplating nature with you.

Thank you, Mara. I'm still

Thank you, Mara. I'm still trying to let loose. It's easier to be free in my little journal, and I think I was able to be in that space and let it go where it led me. I still have more work on letting go of myself. Thank you, too, for seeing my grandmother there with me. That's so lovely that you thought of her and her origins and my connection with her and nature :)
