I have so many poems and writings that I have tucked away that recently re-surfaced while cleaning and packing. Reading this makes me realize how important it is to fulfill your dreams.
I saw her again.
She is quite unique in a special way.
Her emotions expressed by the warm touch of her hand
she seemed to say, "I understand."
bronze, unadorned, refreshing.
Simple and pure.
She smiled, a soft and subtle grin
while reaching for their shoulder giving support once again.
The tone of her smile seem to come from heaven
soft silent and calm.
I tried not to stare at her
only to glance
But with all of her serene charm and beauty
I saw the soul of her eyes.
Her spirit drained of all passion.
Seemed distant in a dream
running to embrace
searching for more.
Sunken beneath the wrinkles
lost in hunger to overcome,
Old Weary Eyes...
tired, worn, yellow
holding back puddled tears
She knows her dreams
are the blood that keeps her strong.
Sadly I looked away.
Doomed to wonder,
if in her eyes I see
a reflection of me.
What have I become
caught between these lines
in this maze of scarlet's web.
Horn's weighing my shoulders
thorns emerge from my side.
A devils deceit
creating a world
captured by my own destiny. LindaG9/2014
I looked out my window and saw this amazing spider web glistening in the morning dew. Grabbing my camera, running outside, snap, snap, snap……What the hell is this? A spider or a spider that caught some sort of bug? I did not want to get too close. Amazing don’t you think?
Take me to the Caribbean.
Feed me lots of sweet tropical fruit
while Butterflies and Lilies dance in my hair!
This is just how I felt while searching for art to put in our garden, when this cute pitcher captured my attention. With its bright orange Lily and colorful flowers, I couldn’t think of a reason NOT to give in. It’s Dutch Wax Ceramic Stoneware, Hawaii Collection. Hand crafted and painted. When it arrived I was delighted! I found the candlestick by StonebriarCollection.com. It was unpainted which gave me the opportunity to paint it the same color turquoise as the cloth and pitcher handle. As well as the wood plate. Next on the table… tropical fruit! Everyday I make fruit smoothies. A day without a smoothie is a day without sunshine! So you see why I felt compelled to bring this little cute pitcher into our garden. It’s so Hawaiian, so Tropical, so Delightful, so Caribbean. I can hear the steel drums now. 🙂
