Living on air

Drifting aimlessly on stormy winds

captured in crevices, caught to be

living on air and no roots to set

into ground beneath our feet.

Natures art decorating places

unexpected like life that paints itself

in sunrise colors and ballooning clouds

that change in a heartbeat

rolling from calm to a darker holding

moving overhead in ominous threat

yet even the darkness is often broken

caught on the clashing fronts

cold to hot to cold to here

where you lie waiting to be released

to wander aimlessly once more

living day-to-day on the air

that we breathe in and out

in steady rhythm in spaces deep

and filled with all it needs

to survive.

We had a nice rain storm last night with a flash of lightning that woke me around 1 am ย and this morning as the beautiful sun rose on a pleasant calm yet damp Sunday, found this little plant lodged into the lanai. I see them growing on the lofty oaks above but apparently this one wanted to drop down to visit for a while. I think I’ll let it sit a spell and enjoy. Perhaps I shall call it Stanley…looks like a Stanley to me. Peace and love my friends and Happy Sunday. Hope it’s calm and filled with peace for you.

  3. Thanks Sue, they don’t damage the host plant, I always thought it was like a Spanish moss, I see them for sale down here, I think a different form of them, at farmers market. I like a plant I can’t kill๐Ÿ˜Š

  4. Nature’s vagabond reaching out for a place to settle, immortalized in lovely, loving verse. Do they harm the trees they occupy or are they symbiotic or at worst, harmless?
