Premium Member A Tarot of Amulets
Mediums of Winter parse
translucent runes on the tines 
of sloping firs basking like mallards 
in March's brusk sunshine. 
Arctic oracles echo on the lake's hard sapphire 
with pearl crests punctuating 
Spring's arrival while cat tails exclaim

Time Ticking By
Freedom is a state I seek
Every moment I lie awake
Another sunray filters in  
Rousing rumors when sleep set in

Over thinking every move I make
Forgetting nothing but what matters
Mindless muddles of troubled thought  
No erasing what's unwittingly taught

Listening closely to the Tanagers sing 

Another day   just like the last
Time ticking by but not to fast...
