NEW HORIZONS
thrashed by winds
of life's seasons, laid threadbare there
for explorer's naming

new horizons are
never new; always were
to those gone ahead

then comes another
cyclic stone walks; the paths for
exploration

fresh tags
inspired musings; data kept
in atmospheric vaults

they have only to
breathe the breath of creating...
new meanings garnered

Having read, and thoroughly enjoyed, 'Curry Casadoo' written by Kamalo Deen; i jumped at the invitation, to be present at a function to meet with it's author. So yesterday morning, it was, my delight, along with a small group of readers, friends, and staff of Nalis St James, to listen to readings from this marvellous novel and converse with him.

DAY MOON - 20130922
Sometimes Sundays are like that,
You become the moth, but more than that;
Your desire for the light is a hunger,
Unsatiable, maddening, engulfing;

Like swallowing whole the moon,
Just as it waxes its fullest; no!
Mere crecsents will not suffice,
Translucent of day sky, that moon.

Mary in her blue mantle...
sunlight through stained glass panels

Linking today to Six Word Saturday AND Back Linking to Paint Party Friday

...its comfortably warm this morning, not yet too hot, and sunny; i'm reading 'Life of Pi' by Yann Martel (a book club recommended novel - which means other persons in my book club are also reading this) i've gotten through more than half, my favourite quote so far is from [page 6]
"The reason death sticks so closely to life isn't biological necessity — it's envy. Life is so beautiful that death has fallen in love with it, a jealous, possessive love that grabs at what it can. But life leaps over oblivion lightly, losing only a thing or two of no importance, and gloom is but the passing shadow of a cloud."
...so i decide to sit outside this morning, (i'm an 'empty nester' so my time structuring is very much mine) Wow! my blessed sixties; my son and daughter, out on their own; my grand daughter will be one year old next month; i'm truly and humbly thankful for today, and yesterdays.

STONE PILLOWS

The dimensions in magic, intrigue the newbies at the
school. Used to being the center of attraction at fairs and bazaars, ringing a bell out there in the avenue to pay their way through an eek of mere sustenance, only to weary and move on. The stains of wind-carried offerings to remind them of their last stop. Ah but winds of change held the answer all along.

thunderstorm...
under some dreams

An inky sky, to sway webs, light as feathers whirling close to stars, where sparks, splintered from oiled wheels of day and night, no doubt somersaults; a scarlet arrow shoots a hole through the abyss where wet surfaces of ocean murmurings dared to ripple; like moonlight over lost intergalactic asteriods

staccato treetops...
the spiral sounds of
helicopter flights
