Spinning Silk

This week, when challenged to publish a favorite photo, I leafed through my stunning sunrises and sunsets, my macro pics of springtime flowers and my pelicans and seagulls soaring and swooping into the breaking surf; I paused at this stunning shot of spider pearls, glistening in the morning fog.  I am struck today, as I […]

Home (Revisited)

The whine of tyke bikes, go carts whirring by, The block where long our house is standing tall, The lawn of seven shades of bluegrass rye, While I, from front-porch rocker, watch it all. We pedal ’round the town, inhaling Fall The nippy, clear, crisp air is cool and sweet, With signs of autumn, vibrant […]

Subjective Perspective

The point of one’s perspective may be blind, (I mused) when spying gay-adorned displays, For deep within the recess of my mind, The mimeographed script again replayed. We children, both, role-playing on that day so long ago, he was the soldier boy, And I, a mere rag doll, in tattered frays, While others dressed as […]

Pedestrians

These breezy dawns of damp and shifting grains Compel us to return, these endless days, Bare-footed and bare-pawed, we stroll the same, unpaved path of swirling, breaking waves. In solitude (we wish we could allay the inevitable masses, as the light erases misty morns of predawn gray), we two rejoin, to bid adieu to night. […]

Rain

Rain, Sitting here inside, Waiting for the skies to clear, Hoping our vacation isn’t smeared, And yet I see only Rain, Pouring down in sheets upon this sleepy calm lagoon, It’s time has come to drench this lovely cove with cleansing droplets; Rain, I’ll wait it out, Serenely know this pause, Precisely why I came, […]

Textured Layers

While gliding on the resort launch on our way to the Magic Kingdom, my eye was initially drawn to the brilliant, white puffy clouds hovering against a perfect sky-blue sky, as the monorail zoomed across the spanse. I snapped this Photo. It wasn’t until hours later, when I scanned my images, that I realized I’d […]

Elevated

Rain is coming! (heavens are ablaze), Sailors warning! (still, I’ve fixed my gaze), Irma’s spinning! (warnings and delays), I will face her! (If she comes my way), Morning’s dawning! (storm clouds soon will raise).   WordPress: Elevate

Blurred Lines

Structure straight and perfectly aligning, A thousand stamens reaching for the sun, Each radiation delicate reminding We’re more than just ourselves, we are as one. From far perspective, branches tipped with pompons, Beckon to us: come survey our blooms, ‘Til closer in we scan the broad-leafed palm fronds, To spy their tender details, through my […]

White Egret

Amid the hustle and bustle of exiting the Magic Kingdom, we’d decided to forego the monorail that would whisk us back to The Polynesian Resort, for a balmy ride aboard the launch, which had just arrived at the dock. As we made haste to catch the launch, I was suddenly distracted by this beautiful, unhurried creature […]

Carry

After an exhaustively satisfying jaunt to Disney Springs, we return to our Polynesian Paradise, with visions of plunging into a refreshing Oasis Pool. This photo captures many emotions for me, transporting me back to the warmth of that day; tasty lunch on the deck of the Boathouse, our traditional “Downtown” shopping and snacking adventures, and […]

An Engineer’s Journal: Open-minded

He turned to me and asked why had I come, “To be an engineer” was my reply, To which he scoffed and rudely put me down To think a girl was pushing out a guy. A few months hence, regardless how I tried, My Chem.instructor oft would make a scene, To call attention to my […]

Loss

Learning to become myself once more, Learning he’s not here to calm my fears, Mostly out of focus, strain to know, Where is my path (between escaping tears)? Thought I was secure through all the years, We learned together how to build our life, Through trials and triumphs, joys, regrets and jeers, We made our […]
