I am Neither quiet or loud,
Nor unusually proud
I don’t shrink
But I can think
Which makes me, me.
On days of quiet solitude
I find interruptions rude
When I reach out in kind
I’m so very happy to find
Friends of excellent quality
Friends are difficult to find
The quality I need is rarity of mind
Being unique is a must
And loyalty and trust
Of course they are original
I am neither quiet or loud
My words are precious when found
Spoken in hushed tones
Usually when I am alone
Which is most of the time, anymore
It’s been a long while since words have come flowing. I had to capture them before they wandered away.
Thanks for listening
I’ve not been too familiar with Tennessee Williams’ work, but it’s really talking to me.
Poets, really good ones, have the ability to resonate, and are timeless.
Every page I turn takes me onto new discovery.
The days run together.
The nights are too short.
Bursts of activity.
Leaving me to wonder.
What day is it?
Waking up to a monster sneeze,
Scared me and the dog.
Now, I’m plunking around WordPress,
Displeased with the new format on the Reader.
Muir Woods, Ocean View Trail. Photo by me.
A new trail.
A winding road.
Uncertainty around the bend.
One foot after the other.
Step by step.
Interviewing for a new adventure.
What will tomorrow bring?
So the soul longs for sunshine,
the feet long for the earth.
The man seeks redemption
the son seeks for birth.
Where does the sparrow fly
Where the sun ceases to shine.
Where does my heart beat.
Where your soul does not long for mine.
I’m riding cross the boundaries
I’m riding through the fences
I’m riding along the ancient trees
I’m riding through the tenses
Past, Present future,
Your soul longs for mine
We will find each other eventually
along the forbidden pines.
I believe what you said…would that I could rest and rely on it all.
My fate, my future in your hands…would that I could let go and trust.
Your words are always truth…would that I could believe when things get hard.
My mind and my faith are at odds…would that I could bring them together.
What a force a mind and a heart’s faith can be…would that I could make that happen for me.
Nothing would be hard if my mind and my heart could be one with Your Word. Would that it could be. Let it be done unto me according to Your word. I will receive it, and be grateful.
