poem

Friends in High Places

in the simple life I live, some days that is

i explore and look around

last week they caught my eye

and this is what i found..

small enough

to nestle in a flower

and sit contently for hours

maybe it was peering eyes of the intruder

that gave reason for hesitation

to leave it’s place of safety

on the high place

of a hollyhock plant…

Simple Pleasures

20160408_131607

simple pleasures

that so easily come

digging in the earth

the feeling of dirt

on my hands…

I do not take it lightly

what my body can do

for with aging, my bones

feel  not, exactly new…

but as long as I see  beauty

in the simplicity of my day

it will keep my outlook healthy

to handle what comes my way..
