Taking a very long breath heaving a deep and lowsigh getting a glimpse of the shape low as it sidles on by I’m fraught with a moment of fear that leads to a feeling of loss thrust in my brain like a chisel stuck like a rock full of moss The gap in my memory reveals the being that might be my love brought back to life in my heart fitting my heart like a glove the thoughts fill the calm with a murmur and shift through my nerves like a sieve wishing he’d be back beside me wishing he’d come back to live.
It wasn’t like the days before Where stones were hard And breath was sour It took a few tries, but I don’t mind Spread a spark under my behind But icy looks and legends lost Enchanted forests full A clue to find a friend thats lost A feather of a gull And once the brew is quickly made Scented with the dew I find that I am still enthralled By the likes of you.
Along the walk I took today I never pictured what I’d see A dove, a tree, a whole forest And there were elves in front of me To my dismay and to my fear They just came thundering right by And stopped right there straight in my path I blundered and let out a cry The biggest one had a tattoo Upon his hairy chest And then the one who was so small Wore an old, brown leathery vest It was the one in the old vest who spoke to me high with a shrill “The forest is the danger here” He said loud with an angst until I bent way down to his small size An umbrella right near his ear “I covet my own privacy So you just go away from here” He looked me up and then he said Like a brave king upon a throne “I’m seven years the king of here This is the forest I do own!” So then I took a large step back Letting me give this guy some space But he didn’t want to let it go He got right back up in my face “I said that this is my own land And you’re no longer welcome here!” I turned to him and loudly said “For that I don’t really care!” I turned again to walk away And then I felt his little fist He didn’t realize I was so big So I grabbed him by his wrist I swung him up right to the tree Which was standing there where we were I told him “take a flying leap” And now that tiny elf’s no more!

Do For You
I feel a flutter in my chest and feel the wind beneath my wings like a bird upon its cage feeling free and so it sings Needing nothing now but love like a hanger for a shirt wanting to be hanging out not laying in the dirt but the cold can come and take it and try to halt its song like a blocked path in a garden a tree root is that strong To deny yourself the freedom like a child from a womb is to wish you had no lifeline Only future filled with doom so you finish what you’re doing try to stay along your way keep your vision very close don’t let sadness make you stray Be eager to find that someone to share your love, your flow and go just where your heart leads don’t stop or let that go.

THE SUNDAY WHIRL: WORDLE 440
From the top of the stone wall, Jack could see the crystal in the rock formation shimmering in the sunlight. The shining rock seemed to blink in the sun as the clouds moved slowly across the sky, blocking sunlight at small intervals. Jack could just imagine taking a piece of that crystal and mounting it on a beautiful gold ring for his soon to be fiancé.
He started down the embankment, fixing his vision on the stone. Once he was able to chip off his portion, he would check to make sure it was clear enough and would still fit in the setting. He knew the tone of the gold would accent the gem and was sure Pam would love it.
After leaving the jeweler, Jack headed toward the hotel’s lounge, knowing Pam was waiting for him. He could not believe his eyes when he saw Pam in her tight black dress and matching black pumps with the stiletto heels. He was so lucky to have this beautiful woman and was excited to ask her to take his hand in marriage.
