Either or

Moving in ease and flow

Whichever way the fair winds blow.

Lazy afternoons spent cruising

Mind through fingertips moving here and there,

No destination in mind

Just being within the open space

Of this never ordinary life.

Reading thoughts penned

Closing my eyes to images which better to see,

Not encumbered by outer stimuli

Just escaping into the colors

That I find lacking beyond this view.

November skies grey and lifeless

Except for the moving of the trees to acknowledge 

Breezes living in barren branches,

And behind the glass a mind calls for ease,

For simple beauty in an artists stroke,

Of pastel beauty that calls my name.

As hounds sleep, dreaming in whimpers of chasing game,

this day meanders on at a pace reminiscent of the sea

Rippled on calm days,

Reflective of thoughts

Perpetually going astray,

No map to read to find the way,

Just going with the flow

Where the subtle winds blow.

Please note, if you love me…you can buy me this just because…

Just kidding….I think. Either or…..

I still love you all,

Peace and beautiful things, K

Lazy day

feet skim just above the water
breeze blows through trees
eyes closed as the crow calls
come relax here with me.
sun dappled through thinning pines
no place to be
just here for now
fish swim near shore
meal gazing.
Cat climbs halfway up tree
then jumps down
I see the brown tail move higher
cat sits below lazy
nowhere to run
he will come back down.
Dragon fly slightly above
water ripples move in wind
back and forth he flies
here and there
I wonder aloud to myself
where is it he is heading
as he comes back and sits
beside me
wings glisten in the light
then off again
to somewhere.
Night will come
shadows will fall and stars
will still sit high above
in the sky with the moon
to keep them company
as this lazy day
passes away.

Day off, thank you Mr President…..

On a well deserved day off, paid for by my employer, I took a selfie for the occasion…..ok it really isn’t me but as I sit here still in my bathrobe, feet cold and fourth cup of coffee flowing in my veins, I am pondering my list of intentions for this day. Now these are in no particular order of course but I will get to them all…..I think.
1. Get dressed already. So hard to do when the pup is on my feet keeping them cozy.
2. Tidy up….dishes, make the bed, etc….cat yak already cleaned up as she did it right next to me.
3. Out to lunch with Mom if she can make it.
4. Shop for essentials…that would be Guiness and dog bones.
5. Fold the laundry I did yesterday and put it away…they are socks….they don’t wrinkle so what’s the rush. Besides, the cat is comfy too in the basket.
6. Make dinner…which tonight is Goulash, which my hubby lovingly refered to as Ghoulash…as in ghoulish….scary…hey hon, I know you are reading this and nodding.
7. Take a shower…hope hair dries before I leave or it will look like my frozen web post earlier. Then I could catch a cold, then I would have to call in to work…hmmmmm. Now that sounds like a plan.
8. Eat breakfast…two slices of cheese….yep, can cross this one off of the list.
9. Stop and get new tag for the pup….in case she forgets who she is….although she is doing quite well at answering to “hey, come back here damn it!!!!”
10. Feed the birds….and the squirrels, and the mice or anything else that is emptying the feeder daily.
Ok, a hefty project I know, but one way or another I know at some point I will get off the couch and move. Um, yeah, come on sloth….you can do it. (See, I can read my husbands mind when he is miles away).
Moving honey….no fear…
