NaPoWriMo – day 21
Rare days when our traveler
is home but not in. Must step
back from too much: chaos,
words, people, stimulus. Has
been known to allow inner
child loose, to play with signs,
symbols, letting nimble fingers
find their own way.
Creating becomes game of serious
work, and words are bees, hard
barked trees, buds and branches
always reaching for new, different
Prairie fire she allows to burn
within, a nebulae of gasses whirling,
swirling in changing symmetry. Lines
misplaced assume faces of flowers. She
can spend hours lost inside their
Time well spent, feeding soul, making
music of moments spent inside beauty
of her own making. Rested at last,
refueled, once again grounded, she
is ready now, to re-enter the world
that surrounds her.

Notes: It was one of those days. Tried hard to post the images, the post is based on, but site refused to cooperate. They are titled accordingly: Treescape, Prairie Fire, Nebulae, Garden, and Purely Purple and are digitally produced. There are days when I must just step back and let myself play. That usually means something with colors. Did that most of the day yesterday. It helps, takes me to another space and place of being. Although I responded to comments on this site, I did not reciprocate those visits. My apologies, it just got beyond me and I will do better today.
My sister is definitely on the road to recovery. Called her hubby early in the morning and told him to bring her comb, which she hadn’t packed for some reason. She’s been moved out of the ICU, but still on the same floor. She called me to find out how I was doing, lol. Thank you all for your thoughts and well-wishes.
