page turner

our moon is blowing kisses again

the entire earth responds sweetly

and blows them right back

even as you drift off to sleep

blanketed by the cricket’s lullaby

your every exhale sails softly

to her luminescent lips

next to it

autumn came running in three days ago all out of breath and overcome with joy

like santa he bounded straight down the chimney of summer’s life-sucking, perpetually sticky wet heat

banning the zillions of ravenous mosquitoes she kept in the folds of her skirts

everyone and everything has come back to life

even the butterflies have outnumbered themselves and swirl blissfully around our heads as we walk, seeming to sing, “it’s here! it’s here!”

rare birds i’ve never met before, on their way to south american jungles, danced ’round our back deck for a glorious couple of days speaking in languages of deep mystery and magical surprises

political signs wave in the breeze

the tv pipes in now and again leaking horror and opinions all over the floor

but, OH! LIFE, in her infinite, mind-blowing beauty and ALL embracing “Here I Am!!!”s

remains everything that is NOW

cool beans and groovy noodles!

Happy Saturday, Beautiful People!

I’m truly not sure who is to blame for planting the “Cool beans!” seed in my psyche so many years ago! But it moved into my brain and had chosen to set up permanent camp before I was conscious of even deciding I’d like to add it to my vernacular! Ah well. Makes me laugh so we remain friends.

Yesterday I went to the art supply store. The sweet, young cashier was very friendly and helpful. As our transaction ended I thanked her and said my beloved, “Cool beans!” She burst out laughing and said, “OH MY GOD! You sound just like my husband. Except he’s from Canada and does You one better. His phrase is “Cool beans and Groovy noodles!”

Now….how can that slice of silliness NOT marry “Cool beans!!!” I think they are already on their honeymoon! I’ll let them stay and decorate their little space of my psyche as they wish. Blame the wonderfully funny Canadian who I’ll probably never meet!!! 🤣

Have a Great One!!!

the other one

the yellow brick road has a cousin

a third cousin thrice removed, i think

infinities ago it drank love tea

brewed up in the Universe’s sink

the twists that it takes are astounding

Divine, funny and true

we walk in our hearts with our souls singing clear

and so often i bump into You!

completely beyond

inside outside up or down no matter where we go

our glorious golden hearts are there; with every, breath in tow

we’re thinking this, we’re figuring that and all the while it smiles

it’s truly us that’s been “in tow” for each and every mile
