Photo Challenge: Easy Being Green

A Controlled Burn

I'll take this gray rain
to soften my jaw; rounded 
shoulders hang low and honor 
the loss of a old heart 
that held mine.

I'll take this gray rain
to smooth my brow, while
rising to meet the ash 
easing to green, almost
but not quite.

It IS Easy Being Green!

Photo Challenge: Atop

 
It’s an inherited seat;
elders and babies ride loose in time,
strong and vulnerable
and not quite domesticated.
Sky-tall and exquisitely tiny;
a saddle blends contradictions
into a familiar sacred stride.

Atop

Photo Challenge: Wish

We felt them close
before we had skin;
from an infinite place
a deep, slow nicker
rumbled, more felt
than heard. The wish
was born first so
we could find our way.

Photo Challenge: The Road Taken.

Dreams are only transparent.
Let my lungs fill,
here, now,
in simple praise
for ordinary moments
of wanting what I already have.

The Road Taken

Photo Challenge: A Good Match

wm-lilith-arthur
A contrarian and a curmudgeon;
fairy tale non-believers
with parallel differences,
kindly melding the gaps.
Together.
Separately.

A Good Match

Photo Challenge: Against the Odds

wm-gray-sunset
Hailed a far distance,
heart-sore,
across broken peaks
and thirsty creek beds,
to surrender the ache
in the cooling air
at the edge of the stars;
home.

Photo Challenge: Shadow

wm-shadow-blurred

I mean to blur the edge,
a half-stop between dark and light,
of the distance between us.

He’s walked on from this place
but just over my shoulder,
his shadow warms the ground.

Afterglow.
