Rise today

The ancient eavesdropper

Release the
formalities of life —
break free
from the rigid
routine —
rise today
on wings
& live
the dream.

Miles from here

The ancient eavesdropper

Willows
weave their
golden branches
around the moon —
catching dreams
as they fall into
the tender embrace
of catkins.

Raindrops tumble
like liquid mallets —
across outstretched fronds —
playing xylophone ferns.

Nudging its
way through
the topsoil —
a worm on the
coattails of
a daffodil.

I’m as carried away
as a leaf in the breeze —
I’m gone with the wind
& miles from here.

‘V’ formation in the sky —
geese return like a boomerang —
as the seasons change.

Striking
a meditative pose
the tree centers itself
on uneven ground.

Seesaws in the sky —
tilting on invisible fulcrums —
sparrows at play.

Bopping its boughs
to the beat of the wind
Ponderosa on air drums.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Against all odds

1-img_7203

A tiny Western hemlock seedling roots itself at the edge of a worn wooden bridge, growing seemingly on thin air, its boughs hovering over the trickling creek below. This photo shows that we are all creatures of chance and circumstance, molded by our respective environments. Against all odds, Nature always finds a way!
