Dialogue of Place

Dialogue of  {Place}

Should I whisper words
that hang on memory’s peaks,
cumulous across my forehead?

A world of words - connected
like tides to the moon.

Words that mingle and rise,
as mist from a valley 
or, dwell in half forgotten dreams;
endless as ocean waves,
or vistas of flowering fields.

Beautiful words
that tell me of my place.

Poetry is everywhere ... you just have the eyes to see it, the mind to reflect on it, and the heart to cherish it; and I think you have all three of these qualities. Beautiful nature analogies, Suz. Your place is wherever your pen chooses to spill it's ink :)

Dear Connie: I have been very remiss in replies and participation lately. John is not well and not only that we have made a huge decision to downsize and move. Getting the house straight for listing is a huge under taking. Loved, always, SuZ
