Wordless Wednesday

6 May

barbed wire and wildflowers

Rain glistened rust spikes
tiny webs
yellow surprises

6 Things

22 Dec

I’ve been tagged by Wren of Wrenaissance to share 6 random things about myself.

  1. I was born in Montana, dead center, far northern part of the state.  Practically in Canada.
  2. I’ve lived in two foreign countries (England and Germany).
  3. I have lived in 6 different states.
  4. I am a terrible slob.  Keeping my house clean is a huge bother.
  5. When I meet people in person, I’m very shy until I know them well.  Then, look out.
  6. I have another poem up at Winter Haiku.  Go see, please!

So, if you’d like to play along, consider yourself tagged.  If you don’t want to play, nevermind then.

Brave Soul

On the high dive

Challenge yourself to succeed
Reach deep within; muster the courage
To just jump off the high dive

She hasn’t succeeded in jumping off yet.  We are setting mini-goals.  The first was to stop hiding and simply walk up the ladder and walk back down again.  That was easily achieved.  Next, she was to walk out to the end of the board and walk back again.  She did it.  Goals met.  I do not want her to jump yet — I want to see her walk out there with confidence.  We’re not seeing that yet.  I know she’ll jump.  She knows she’ll jump.  She just has to make it happen.

Watching your mind work so hard
Twisting and turning every problem
My heart is proud of your intellect

My girl is smart and her brain and body can be at odds.  Her body knows that high dive is high but that it will be fun.  Her brain has started to realize what can happen if you fall.  She is battling herself and I know she’ll win.  She is so strong and amazing in her technicolor polka dots.  You go girl!

Fungus amoung us

Even in winter
You nurture a varied life

Wordless Wednesday — A Glow in the Night

12 Mar

The glow of the nightlight

The glow fills
the corners with light
I am home.
