to paint the day....delightful

day moon watches -
meditation of rosary beads
and of bird songs

morning creeps in
firm and sure her footsteps-
while breezes sleep

1924


['Emily Carr, "Big Raven" (1931)' courtesy The imaginary garden]

without his sweet song
this wooded bird clings to blood
of wastelands bleeding

where love is lost deep
such heartless yearnings for stone
cringe in fresh baked bread

wild wind stares aghast
frozen in the midst of toil
unholy dramas

I have, as many i’m sure, associated the holly with Christmas. And then again, three are those who say every day should be Christmas. So with no hesitation or qualms i write in response to Kristjaan’s prompt today
Carpe Diem #995 Holly

Symbolic Messages from the Holly
Let your beauty shine within even in times of dormancy
Rule the day, and let your generosity be your legacy
The energy of life is ever-present

a play of light and shadows -
silence of windchimes


Today, the first Sunday in July, meets Trinidad and Tobago in mourning at the passing of a Prime Minister: Patrick Manning (August 17, 1946 - July 2, 2016). The Honorable Patrick Manning served as Prime Minister from 1991 to 1995 and again 2001 to 2010.
