     …dedicated to Pat

 

the Spring green has taken a nap

life has been walked…lived…loved

each step bringing forth more color…

displaying its glory for what seems a moment in time…

the autumn leaf falls…the red treasure is gathered

carrying her heart deep into life

patiently present

the tumbleweed is dancing across the red clay road

moss clothes the aged oak tree

intricately weaving its way

as one gives purpose to the other

deep within, the secret of life lives

carrying her heart deep into life

patiently present

wisps of words move across the azure skies

moving as silent as a whisper

serenity cloaks the day passed

while the donkey’s bray punctuates the stardust

breaking the silence of the evening

carrying her heart deep into life

patiently present

    • Hi Marlynne, Glad you enjoyed the poem…NO, I didn’t realize the copywrite date error…thanks for calling my attention to it! Another person saw it as well, and inquired if I was a “time traveler”—only in my dreams! LOL Have a good week and if you are in the North, stay warm! 🙂

    Lovely photos and poems, Jane. Unless you are a time traveler, you may want to change the dates on them to 2016 instead of 2017. ;-D
