Enter September

Slipping in quietly
On August’s coattails

Clad in last season’s warmth
And bright colour

Flourishing her own touch
A pearlescent wrap

The weft of crisper air
The warp of stored sunshine

Earth twirls like a girl
Showing us her new raiment

A whisper of white embellishment
Introducing our eyes to the latest fashion
In the Collection of Four Seasons

Sunrise Fog over Ottawa

Sunrise Fog over Ottawa

Full Moon Fragmentations

Also on Eclectic Unconfined

once crisp cotton sheets

tumbled on the floor

wisps of dreams

gleams

hands in my hair

teeth on my shoulder

the press of hips

driving against thighs

sighs

this welcome weight

satin sated flesh

anise spiced whispers

fierceness tempered

drowsy sweet caress

moonlight on ivory

we melt together

rest

Coupled sheets

Patina Of My Heart

Reading the piece “Grief” by the beautiful human and talented poet  SouldierGirl, opened an old seam in the fabric of me…

~~~~~

Does my grief equal? Can I speak at all to offer comfort?

Three of my babies were never born

“You’ll have more”

“Better now than when they’re older”

“I would have married you”

Well-intentioned words, with the accuracy of blow darts

My lost angels

I have screamed at the notion that time heals

In the truest sense, it does and it has

I rewove the fibres of my being with those threads missing

Altered by an absence

Fashioning Taj Mahal pockets in my heart

Stitch by careful stitch, day by month by year

I go on

Mended

In The Eye

My sun and stars

My earth and air

Blood and bone, soul and breath

Nourishment and Little Death

I need only open up my eyes

You’re in my soul

You are my sky

Wonderful Wednesday

Not so wordless today :)

One of the first things I saw this AM and still making me smile – yes, I’ve watched three times already – I am a crazy Mumma Bear for kids.

WordPress won’t allow the posting of videos on plebeian blogs like mine so I posted it over on my Blogger site. It’ll be worth your finger twitch for the smile. Promise.

Happy Dancing Wednesday
