Now we understand —

time is not a fleeting thing,

it is we who fleet.

.

Now we understand –

time does not have any wings,

it is we who fly.

.

Now we understand –

there is only one present

for us to unwrap.

Sorry I’m way behind reading blogs again. Am missing you all, and will hopefully start catching up soon, little by little. Please forgive me if I don’t comment much.  (Fibromyalgia and chronic back pain are the usual culprits, and I know many of you can relate to these “invisible” health problems.) 

Loving thoughts to everyone. ❤❤

Sunset gave itself

She sorts through

ribbons and buttons

bobby pins

crocheted lace

memories of her mother

tied up in a bow.

Gift

….

Possum tumbles

like an old football

through branches

to the garden below.

Dazed, he snuffles

through warm leaves

climbs again

limb by slow limb

to his dozing nest

where he’ll finish his dream

of the gardener below

who is wiping her shoe

on the grass.

He thinks she is kind

and tonight

he will leave another offering.
