Very short talk by a Storm Chaser…beautiful cloud photographs…from TED

Fred, Misty and Abbie just want to remind you…

IMG_3245Fred, Misty and Abbie are on their way to a meeting.  The Coop is Growing and they are voting on where to build the new housing units for all the Guests who have decided to stay for a while.  It’s an important meeting and everyone is excited about the prospects of building something.  The chicklets love to design and build whatever they can, so the energy is high and they hope the meeting will be short, so they can begin.  They are hoping to build condo’s by the Duck Pond, where it’s rather marshy.  There are big trees there so they think it will be the perfect place.

Summer night…

I
heard
the
sax
first

 

 

low
jagged
sounds
crying
the
blues

 

 

then
the
darkness
started
moving
in

 

 

chasing
away
the
light

 

 

 

the
closer
the
darkness
edged
in

 

 
the
louder
the
sax
became

 

 
notes
torn
from
from
the
musician’s
soul

 

 

the
night
chuckled
and
held
out
its
misty
hand

 

 
offering
a
dance

 

 
knowing
it
wouldn’t
have
to
ask
me
twice

Not really…

Terrifying poem. Melanie is a wonderful poet and her words always force me to FEEL. I love that about her work.

Wordifull

pacing

she collects her thoughts

to stow them away

in the bottom desk drawer

along with her individuality

and her creativity

she has no use for them any longer

it doesn’t pay to think here

no one wants to hear her opinions

now that she has resigned herself

to that reality

maybe she can fit in

maybe life here will be more bearable

as part of the herd

~Melanie Thomason

Stairway to…

Chicago Botanic Garden

That’s the fun of finding a path or stairway to…who knows where…the surprise ending.
