Blessings to all my blogging friends and wishes for safety and gentle healing, especially for my family and friends in California. 💕
A little cherita fun for a cold morning in my corner of the world. Peace and prosperous endeavors to all my blogging friends around the world. 🍁🙏🍂
Whether it is the leaves of autumn on the outside or artistic inspiration from within, wishing all my blogging friends a colorful week…
press wet color
onto open surface
thirsty canvas sips the pigment
as liquid hue drips from the long bristles
painting in living color, thick

Wishing all my blogging friends a happy and productive week. A little Monday motivation…
Little quill, on an inkwell, rests. The stationary lives up to its name. Ideas die in wait on a solid oak desk where an empty chair defies its game. Silence echoes your nothings. A woodpecker pecks on your window frame with intensity that rattles his brain. He needs to eat.
The poor starve. Their bellies ache.
“So it is with the world!” you shout into the pillow.
No one hears you from your bed where you scratch notes. The pencil line you draw with those words simply chases its tail around your margins. You break the lead. You crumple the paper and throw it across the room. At least the paper sees some action. It flies through the air and lands just short of your garbage bin. You leave it there with a few of its cousins. You pull up the covers and sleep among your eraser droppings.

The air in my corner of the world is crisp with an autumn chill, and the leaves are just starting to turn. I am escaping outside to enjoy it, returning to a favorite place…
as a child
through woodland wandered
touched the roots
with gentle feet
heard the rumble
grown I walk
through concrete wasteland
trip on cracks
with tired toes
hear the grumbles
return me now
to verdant fields
the soft wind thrills
the air’s alluring

“Words do not pay for my dead people.”
Shall we talk
awhile while we travel the miles
you will be
graciously confined to
awhile while we hand out the piles
“Good words will not give me back my children.”
Yes, but you fled
“Treat all men alike. Give them all the same law.”
Sure, just submit
until we discover the next resource we want.
“Give them all an even chance to live and grow.”
You ARE free to live
and grow –
