leaves wings and other such things


in the wind

detail of wind blown hair

the wind brushes against my body & i am aware.

the wind brings the smell of water, the ivy, the trees, the dirt.

in it i can hear the birds, the leaves, the dogs barking in the distance.

it is cool. it is forceful. it is soft.

it is not petty or false.

if you reveal your secrets to the wind, you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees.
     Khalil Gibran

woman brushed by wind brings the sense of the leaves, blossoms, & trees


trees go wandering forth in all directions with every wind, going & coming like ourselves, traveling with us around the sun two million miles a day, & through space heaven knows how fast and far!

flowering calla lily birds

if calla lilies imagine flying as proposed in flight of the calla lilies
perhaps then
the birds may imagine being clustered among green leaves, surrounded by the fragrance of blossoms,
grass, & bark, even tickled by pollinating bees.

2 birds imagining what it would be like to be calla lilies

they would also imagine curling from a long graceful stem to create a sculptural rippled goblet.
they would even forget that some think calla lillies are undesirable weeds.
these birds know better.

flight of the calla lilies

the flower of the calla liliy in flight

flying in my dreams

I soar above the mundane
sadly I awake
