Trees

from faint flutterings
to leafy, bellicose russle
a language all their own
trees in summer breeze

Beliefs & Strange

a matter of faith –
came to trust subtle nudges,
though mystifying

this thing that guides me, at times
so hands on, captivating

A Look Back

20180723_1800071178591838.jpg

A humble room, the bed is pushed up against the green wall. The iron head board bobs with every childish wiggle.
The half dresser half wardrobe was the shiniest thing in the room. The most facinating for us as kids was my mom’s pedal operated Singer sewing machine. That was at the front of the room, near the window. The daylight was better there.

At dusk, the kerosene lamp sits on the dinner table offering light through its glass shade. On it the white inscription, “HOME SWEET HOME”. As we sat in bed, waiting for my dad we can barely contain our excitement. It was time for bedtime stories with pictures cast in shadows against the wall.

tall tales of nature –
duck quacks, wiggles his tail
tadpole on his back
