I see low clouds over mountain ridges

and think what a wonderful gift just

for me at just this time. I watch leaves

move in the wind and see the air stream

through my world. Golden finches flit

and sit on my feeding troughs of thistle

seeds as I become the audience of wonder.

I see the blue ridge through miles

of air between me on my deck and those

imposing bulks unaware of their presence.

I see chipmunks skitter inches at a time

while I stay still, holding the moment.

Life is always in the instant.

A most uplifting and imaginative piece, light and airy yet with a philosophical anchor in the last line that has made my day. I particularly liked "I see the blue ridge through miles/ of air between me on my deck and those/ imposing bulks unaware of their presence." Thanks for sharing. G.

Agreed with G. 'Life is always in the instant' Indeed it is, and how well that instance of an instant is captured.

 

Well done Paco!

This piece makes me homesick, paco! Tight, concise, the exact amount of imagery & words. Nicely done.

Franklin, you have a great knack for capturing home in a mid-Atlantic/"just below the Mason-Dixon" vernacular that's comfortable and familiar to me. This is America -- I'm there -- and the entire picture feels like home.
