…enjoying summer 9

shadfly litter the
walkway by the shops; too far
for the trout to lunch

Love 8
Panning for Gold?
(Shadorma)

The patter
Of my heart – is it
Close in dreams
Or far like
Neverland’s location – come
Seek, and please find me…

BE31: A Part or Apart

We all wonder during slow times,
Or at least I know I do… if I have done enough –
Those who are close can let us know by allowing us in their life.
And that… is, could be, should be… enough –
Yet for those who are further, the distance is like a maze;
Each twist and turn takes us further – and our efforts seem, not enough –
How whole can we be when our reach, our grasp, our hopes
Seem like never enough?

remembering that
an unbroken circle ‘is’
has to be ‘enough’

Wholeness

We are all connected in the unbroken circle of life.

a request from far and near

10.5 …crickets cry…

10.5…crickets cry…

cold stone moon at four
in the afternoon, crickets
cry to far to hear

Please to see the post for information about Shiba Sonome,
other masters, our host and other contributors inspired pieces.

Note: After leaving the grocery store I looked up into the blue sky,
(We had rain and cloud filled skies for the good part of two days)
At around four thirty, the moon was as white as the surrounding clouds.
Just a little shaven off the left ‘chin’. A really lovely sight.
