I Love It When She Starts to Respond

I LOVE IT WHEN SHE STARTS TO RESPOND

Seven p.m.

and the sun

still streams

through my

window.

at least

it’s cooler now.

The writing

continues.

The day calls

for it,

and my muse

has actually

begun to respond.

It’s going to be

a good night.

home is where the heart is…

NOW, I FOLLOW HER LEAD

I’ve finally gotten old enough

to give in and get comfortable

with my own rhythm.

Actually, the truth is that

I’ve finally wised up enough

to listen to the voice of my lady.

When she wants to dance

I’m ready and waiting. When

she wants to play, I’m right here.

God, we’re having a grand time.

IN THE GROOVE

It’s almost six p.m.

here in Jerusalem

and I’ve been writing

since ten. It’s

definitely time

for a break,

and even a bite

to eat.

A quick snack

at the Bagel Bite

on the corner

of Bethlehem

and Yehuda,

and I will be good

for at least

another eight.

Darwin wrote that it is not always the strongest species that survives, or even the most intelligent. The species that survive are the one that prove to be most adaptable. The photo below is one of a survivor.

A Fugitive at Rest

A FUGITIVE AT REST

I’ve traveled far enough

to escape from myself,

even if only temporarily.

I know it’s not much,

but, at least for the moment

I can catch my breath,

swing my muse around

a time or two,

and thank my God

for the overwhelming joy

of pencil and paper.

For now, it’s enough.

Unused Luck

Unused Luck

My son’s shop, Black Lion Forge, located in Sweet Hollow, Virginia is a wonderland of photo opportunities. He is a traditional blacksmith and metal artist, and going to his shop is always a treat for me. There’s something primitive about working with fire and iron and beating hot metal to your will that strikes a deep chord in me. These horseshoes will never see the bottom of a horse’s hoof, but they will be transformed into something even more beautiful than they are now…which, after all, is what luck is supposed to accomplish.

The bird feeder on my porch here on Snake Mountain has become the place to be seen in the past couple of weeks. And although I thoroughly enjoy all my feathered friends, the antics of my four-footed neighbors are the most entertaining.
