flying above the weather; opportunity knocking on your door; playful polar bears.
four friends; understanding the nature of energy; the hour before dawn.
walking through the fairgrounds at dawn; desert silence; the door being flung open.
finding the needle; the windows frosted over; tears drying on the pillow.
waiting in the shade; being an oyster manifesting a pearl; gingerbread.
meeting on the bridge; climbing to the top of the mast in a storm; flannel sheets dried in the sun.
heading out the morning after; being nominated for a peace prize; a money tree in full bloom.
a green roof; meeting for tea during a snowstorm; breaking plates on purpose.
peering over the stone wall; smaller than you can imagine; a butterfly dreaming about Paris.
reaching for the sky; a she-wolf taking care of twin babies; sculling slowly through the village.
a different listening; dancing your way out of the cave in the cliff; wrapped in silk.
One day I was browsing in our local library and learned something about the first Thanksgiving that I did not know. As I read it, I was struck by revelation.
our lives entwined; being met at the train; bringing the wood inside before the storm.
crossing a field of ripe pumpkins; the face in the bark of the tree; down by the old mill stream.
waiting on the dock at dawn; a new glass slipper; breaking the seal.
meeting after the theater; being blown like a leaf across the field; getting the call that changes your life.
meeting under the winged pine; the stars at midday; elves playing in the dollhouse.
red and white striped beach umbrellas; the alpacas grazing outside your bay windows; a tiny house in the heart of the forest.
the lighthouse still standing; opening your eyes and realizing it’s late in the morning; a small favor.
a pile of antique rugs laid out in the sunshine to dry; dressed only in peacock feathers; knowing that the question has to be answered.
the message from the ladybug basking on a seed pod; the sea bed roiling with pearls; the uncanny feeling that an admiring stranger is watching you.
