"Good Morning, World!"

MY DESSERT 2

The Hawk Queen Bed 10:22pm

Tonight I delved in

into The Meaning of Life

once again

It’s been countless times

I’ve tasted

The Chocolate of It

& seen The Sparkles

& known

My Destiny

& That of

Human

Kind

MY LIFE

The Hawk Portico 4:45pm

I want to write

My Life Out

in brilliant vibrancy

like the colours

of My Quilt

Purple & Teal

housed now

in a lavender room

by The Sea

(of course)

where I am

happiest

in a red deck chair

on My Front

Stoop

(The Portico)

entertained by amiable neighbours

taken care of

(in case I still need care)

by My

Glowingly Handsome Husband —

let Me write

too

about My Beautiful

Daughter

My Heroic Son

& yes

as the brightest

of all

let Me write

& Write

about My Love

which strings Me along

from water tap

to ocean spray

I drink

from My Glass

named Life

& I live

in Divine

Completeness

LATE SUMMER

Barrington Passage, NS 10:04am

I said “Good Morning!”

to three sets of 2

on The Barrington Bay Trail

and The Morning was

beautiful

when I thought of those

trucks

out of favour with Me now

I was called by A Chickadee

and so She is Timeless
