Dandelion

It stands alone, in the middle of a grassy field waiting.   It strains, leaning into the wind longing, longing to create, to share…   but to spread its ideas it must die. Advertisements

Flight

I’ve been in this nest for my whole life, I think; my wings are stronger now, my feathers more firm.   A fledgeling, am I ready to fly as those before me have flown?   It is what I have dreamed of, a moment I have wanted, longed for, for so long and now the […]

Butterflies

The forest was one grown of heart and of spirit, vibrant and flowering; and through the blooming blossoms they flew.   Butterflies, in stunning hues gold, red of passion, and blue so intense it seemed to glow, shimmering colors on the fluttering wings: through the trees they rushed, their fragile wings beating a tune, a […]

Salt Water

It always brings to bear everything that you want not to consider. It surrounds you, and if there is so much as a tiny nick in your flesh it will force you to acknowledge it. How much more with a gaping abrasion. And yet somehow it has a way of healing and while yes, it […]

Sea Glass

Half-buried in the coarse sand, mostly submerged under foam, a glimmer of pale, translucent green catches the sun’s rays and it sparkles. It used to be harsh, jagged, but time and the water together have taken their toll, and what once was ugly, a fragment of trash thrown out, perhaps once part of a bottle […]
