Windy~ June 16 on the 17th

Worms pink in puddles

Mosquitoes need to eat too

This walk a brisk one

Windy~ June 15 on June 16

Columbine in bloom

Redwing Blackbird fears no man

Lovely walk this eve

Windy~ June 14 (part deux)

See the line of clouds

Feel the wind blow on my heart

The call a whisper

Windy~ June 14

Distracted again

Now time to think of my own

My future will come

Mandies

She said things that made me chuckle.

“Come sit on the davenport.”

“Arco coffee is out of this world.”

She was a strong and fearless woman.

“I was not afraid to cook for a Five Star chef.”

“I spoke my mind when women were quiet.”

She thought she was sneaky.

“Don’t tell your mother…”

“Does my breath smell like smoke?”

She was too frugal for me.

“I bought you some slacks for only a nickel.”

“If your not going to eat that I will put it in my purse.”

She had me near tears at the end of our time.

“That red-haired girl came to see me.”

“Please, take me home with you, please.”

All of it, and more, makes me grateful.

Thank you, Great-Grandmother.

Feeling Flip

pain, tenderness, distress

You, again?

nuisance, asperity,discomfort

Welcome home!

angry, inflamed, aggravated

We missed you.

exhaustion, insomnia, powerlessness

Stay as long as you like.

Walk the Dog

I go out for a walk with Randy

He sets a fine pace

Prancing along

Trotting on tiny toes

Even at the end of the leash

I loose sight of him in the dark

So sleek and black

Save for one white star on his chest

Echolocations above us

Pause so his radar ears may find the sound

Or they may be wings

He thinks of flying away with these cousins

The last light reflects on the river

Just before it turns obsidian glass

We hear noise on the banks

Take me home, Randy

A Mind to Travel

Longing for a drive across the prairie
Yellow and lavender sway on the breeze
Wildflowers are never contrary
Not even when they are so full of bees

* 20+10=30      Goosebumps!
