Waiting

Exquisite…

Yesterday and today: Merril's historical musings

A thousand wonder-worries cloud the night—but

play in shadows and in light,
soar in time, moon-drunk, star-dazzled,
as wind whispers to water, flow, live–

and if you dream, recall
the luscious, languid sighs
of pink-petaled branches after the storm,
and the cool-blue smell of sky and air—

waiting

in honeyed sunglow,
watching the diamond spray
of spring rain on ripening buds,

waiting,

for the moment to embrace
color, to heal the world.

My poem from the Magnetic Poetry Oracle. She knows spring is on its way.

  • Dear Nan,

    What a lovely painting and message you have given us! Since “spring is on its way”, please kindly let me wish you a very lovely March and a wonderful Springtime with the classic rendering of this very fine song, sung by Mandy Patinkin for the musical “South Pacific”:

    May you feel “Younger Than Springtime” throughout the new season!

    In the spirit of spring, I would like to invite you to visit my bespoke and animated post entitled “💨 Strong Wind Knows Tough Grass 🌾 疾風知勁草”.

    Yours sincerely,
    ჱܓSoundEagle🦅
