forgotten   Leave a comment

Sometimes I am amazed at what I have forgotten

take this space for instance

I have not been here since October.

Life has been very strange

and hopefully I have return to write and try to figure out some more things.

October Skies   Leave a comment



Autumn leaves make my heart glad

the red  orange and gold leaves

fall like stars from the sky

landing softly

lying quietly

protecting and nourishing the earth

reminding me of the dark time approaching

Nothing fills the pain in my chest

like the glorious blue October sky

as everything else turns inward for the season

the bright blue sky shines  and reminds me

there is always a blanket of hope

a promise of light

blue skies smiling at me

little thoughts   1 comment

I am amazed at how far behind I have become here.

Summer is a busy time, yet I have had many thoughts I felt the need to write down, and I am sad that I have not done this.

So here I am thinking of Autumn, my time of year.

Chilly tonight and I can feel it in my bones.

I have been busy sweeping the cobwebs from my home.

Autumn has always energized me, whereas most people feel this way in the Spring.

(Grand)Father’s Day   1 comment

Reading one of my very favorite writers this morning: trying to catch up),Kat always touches me deeply with her insight to the people who have shared her life. Yesterday was a bittersweet day around here, the dolls were all here for Father’s day and I am so happy to share in these celebrations. In reading her post about her father, memories of my grandfather came flooding back. Although I think of him everyday, it is usually an isolated memory . I had hoped to write a bit about him but it is not to be–I cannot control the tears today.
