Who speaks up when the cold crashes in

When lizards go down under the earth to dream?

Den dwelling four leggeds fatten to retreat for winter

Leaving the monster man-made machines to roar and rumble

Upon the surface of tierra madre.

Turning cycles are subtle in the sandy-sparkled desert.

Heat departs, we open doors and windows wide

Relieved, appreciating the ending of sweltering temps.

Maybe it is

All about perspective.

Journal prompt: Write a poem about perspective. Then climb a hill, a tree, or even get up on a ladder and write from the view of elevation. Try the same exercise by climbing down into a lower level; use the stairs, go down into a ravine, or use your imagination to access this point of view. How does it change your perspective?

I made it this far and plan to keep going. I believe nature heals the soul. I love to journal, to write, do art, and music. I'm not afraid to tackle tough subjects. Solar-powered & drive hybrid. Trying to do my part. Earned my BA at 53. And, I believe, it's never too late to have a happy childhood.

  1. flash light thunder rolls falling water crystals sparkles and glitters on trees dripping in jewel hued leaves. rush out of doors to rescue a geranium pot of coral petals. eye lashes catch fat flakes and I turn my face upwards to eat them!
