Wishing ...

and praying
for all who have been,
and are in harm's way...
May comfort and safety
come your way.
May your loved ones
be safe and gathered round you.
May the following days
bring hope,
and all things good.
May you all
be well.

Inside the Inside


Inside is good.
What is even more wonderful
is the goodness, the friendship, and
the connectedness of
other people.
Such a blessing.

Small Fall Before the Big Rain

So much potential,
but early rains do put an end
to the beauty that could be.
It is what is.
What came before the rains
was magnificent and such a blessing.
Is it selfish to want more?
Perhaps so.
I am grateful,
though feeling quite greedy.
I do want the promise of oaks,
maples and the glory of
the autumnal skies
to be fulfilled.

This Afternoon...

I cleaned out some dead flowers..
looked at the lovely wine grapes,
and as I wandered around,
listened to the very far
and faint susurration
of the crickets.

It was a beautiful day.
Made more beautiful
because of thoughtful notes
from loving and caring people
whom I love. Thank you all.
As I listened to the distant strains
of the crickets, such dainty beings,
I imagine that tonight
they are donning their tuxedos,
ties, white blouses
and black skirts.
I believe that if I pay attention very carefully,
I will hear the magnificent
orchestration of Vivaldi's
I hope that you can hear it too,
no matter where you are.
Tuning up the strings,
tightening the bow, 
all as one rejoicing in 
this beautiful season.
I hear the "tap, tap" of the conductor.
Ready, begin, and the music
flows like water
over the linen grasses,
it blows through the waning
light of the moon.
The brilliant stars light the way
for all of us to take a seat,
to listen and give applauds 
for this gentle and gorgeous
With love and best, e.
