Spiral to center

One who walked the logs
before me
left a sign
saying
move inward
inward
and in
deeper
still
within
then
outward
again.

High tide calmP.S. I marvel that today’s high tide is so calm and wonder at the metaphor.

 P.P.S.  This one who walks on logs throws logs for labradors who love them:

Emotikins are my lifesavers

Thanks to my sister for sending me this poem once.

Water Women
By Alla Bozarth-Campbell

We do not want to rock the boat you say
 Mistaking our new posies for something safe.
We smile secretly at each other sharing the reality
 That for sometime we have not been in the boat.
We jumped, or were pushed, or fell, and some leaped overboard.

Our bodies form a freedom fleet
 Our dolphin grace is power
We learn and teach and as we go each woman sings
 Each woman’s hands are water wings.

Some of us have become mermaids or Amazon whales
 And are swimming for our lives.
Some of us do not know how to swim
 We walk on water.

If fluffy white
flowers really were wishes
awaiting your whiff
and a whoosh,
what
wish
would
you
cherish
and
whiff?
What if?

Oh, hello dear dandelion

Oh, hello dear Dandelion

And you, I see you've already given out wishes

And you, I see you've already given out wishes

Here's one with a few wishes left

Here's one with a few wishes left

Oh, fragile unwished wishes!

Oh, fragile unwished wishes!

Ah, magic wishes awaiting a wisher

Ah, magic wishes awaiting a wisher

Will you be my wishing wand?

Will you be my wishing wand?

You will? Let's dance before wishing...

You will? Let's dance before wishing...

I cherish each wish...

I cherish each wish with a kiss and a blessing...

There goes the first wish

There goes the first wish...ppffttt!

Look! A sky full of fluff. Are those wishes?

Look! A sky full of fluff. Are those wishes?

Thanking each wish in advance

A bouquet of wishes, thanking each thought in advance

Take a deep breath

Take a deep breath...

A seed of a wish awaiting a breeze...

A seed of a wish awaiting a breeze...

Loading my bow, aiming my wish to the sky

Loading my bow, aiming my wish to the sky...

I wanted a wish so I whiffed and it whooshed

I wanted a wish so I whiffed and it whooshed and whisked away in the wind

I planted a seed in the sky

And so with each wish i cherished and kissed, I planted a seed in the sky.

good night

Hokusai Sky

Cloud waves one morning
Rare sight
Cloud curls
Rolling waves
Blowing wind
Familiar
Never seen before
Maybe never again

Gone
moments
later

Good
morning

Cloud wave closeup

I love
my Blackberry.

I love
Zooming in.

Pixelated clouds
Blue squares
in a curly sky

Pixelated cloud waves

inspired
what happened
that afternoon

Playing with clouds and dandelion wishes

How tall is tall? Hip deep in weeds? Or flowers?
Imagine fingertips touching the whisps of wheat in wind

Imagine spinning slowly, fingertips touching wisps of wheat in wind

The magic of microvision. The lack of smellovision. The joy of spring.

good day. bad day.
flowers. weeds.
small. gigantic.
snowy morning.
sunny afternoon.
bad day. good day.
it’s all in your a sense of perspective.

fickle spring
