I was going to post an image of Irma but being a fan of manifesting, decided to switch gears and put a beautiful pic instead. Nature has been finding me lately, a stunning butterfly yesterday, various blue feathers (blue jay), a shiny beetle glinting in the sun and a rare appearance from Mr. Slithers the snake.
I’ve been out of the WP as you can see, preparing as best as we can for Irma. I’d like to politely tell Irma to go away but I fear she won’t listen.
We have food, water, pet supplies and a roof over our heads. The hurricane shutters (always affectionately known as wavy gravy plastic) are always up so now to the mix has been added the hurricane cloth that covers the front small lanai that leads into our double doors (mostly glass) and one that spans the back lanai to help protect the 3 sets of glass sliding doors there. I expect the power to go out at some point and may be weeks they say till restored. If you don’t see me, I hope that is the reason why….be positive, I know that will be the reason why. We live in South Venice FL a mile from the coast. We are in evacuation zone C. We would need storm surge 15-25 feet for them to tell us to leave and as of now, it won’t be that high. We will have very strong winds in excess of 100 miles an hour for hours….so come on folks, say it with me….Irma, you will peter out to 60 miles an hour or less by the time you get here, okay? This will most likely be my last post unless something changes and Irma collapses and dissipates into mist ❤ but just wanted to keep you all in the loop of whats happening here in our paradise. Send prayers and manifest some good juju for us if you would, our gas tank is filled and when it clears we can go joyriding that we made it. Hugs and love from me, the hubby and the fur babies ❤

Spaces blue

We meet in the middle

intersecting thoughts collide

as star-dust falls

into being

self flowing through

the blue hued moments of silence

we become ever more aware

by simply being

and doing that which comes

naturally from somewhere,

speckled backdrop of worlds beyond

we connect without words

with out need of power

to the right or wrong,

just watching as it all falls away

like molasses slow and thick,

there is greatness in the movement of clouds

and we reach out for that which we see

knowing the illusion is built

on moisture and light we move through

no stopping at the sign

for the emptiness bade us go

like the green light touch

as the sun drips down

splashing into a new day somewhere

other than here,

we feast our eyes upon the heavens

devouring the mystery

we lick our lips sated,

and smile at the abundance

we hold.

Lost in moments (free flow poetry)

Air heavy hanging
Suffocation of thoughts
as the music plays intermittent,
not sure where the flow is
only knowing
gotta go with the tune
playing his song
softly with inflection like a silent drum beat
cause the day is gone
as are you
tap tap tap goes the tympanii
and I don’t remember when the final concerto played
only that you aren’t here to hear
your heartbeat song
and I make no apologies
for you know me
know how it goes,
this rhythm
the beat in the silent night
we are harmony
the sky and moon
singing to those no longer a part
reasons and purposes,
as the air hangs heavy like a heart
beyond repair of the moment
I scream in the ebb
as silence catches me unaware
drowning in humidity heavy,
of a life remembered
I long to show you
as I sit here
scribbles on a vacant wall
will anyone remember with dawns light
the plight
of a poet in the shadows,
will anyone remember the name
of the girl undone,
I sit here on the post
stoic and strong regardless
as days light passes
I rise
with the head on cotton pillows
comforted in dreams
and the thought of making it through
like hummingbirds and memories
they always rise to the surface
and a memory is just that,
a yesterday moment caught in the rearview,
disregarded as best we can,
slipping down into the horizon that awaits,
knowing it’s gonna be okay,
our sweet being
makes it that way
regardless of our wishes.
