In This Season Of Change…

I am learning to let

uncertainty

be

and to

maintain

resilience and flexibility

as the sands of time

shift

beneath

my

feet

fading in the early fall light…

reclaiming all evidence of

This exquisite view of the Hutchinson River

The Long Island Sound

And the ever-changing Wetlands

Never ceases to fascinate and enthrall

Day after day

Season after season

Year after year of my life

Witnessing

The shifts in my soul

That keep time with the changing seasons

Today is a day of honoring

Mother Nature as She

Signals the approach of

Death

In a wild and vivid display of

Outrageous Color!

You go, Girl!

Seasons Of My Life…

 Summer…

As I move as carefully and gracefully as I can

Through the seasons of my life

I am finding that summer is for indulging my passions

It’s the season for setting free

Inclinations and inhibitions

Hidden below the icy snows of winter

Summer…

My season for taking chances

For daring to follow the bold and bodacious beat

Of my carefree heart

Summer

My season of freedom from the wears and tears of seasons past

My season of breathing in…and letting go

The season in which I dare

To throw caution to the wind

And fly off to the Heavens

In pursuit of my wild and wanton soul

On its return to

Paradise

Summer…

My season for fun!

The Mist…

my river is hidden in a sea of mist…

like my life

everything covered…

hidden

shrouded in mystery and uncertainty

as much as I strain

 I cannot see past the mist to that which is invisible…

not for me to see

or know

and so I am forced into Patience

into sitting here in contemplation of the mist

waiting in Time

the medium through which

the Creator works

Seasons of Change…

Ah...it seems so long ago...

that my heart

frosted and windblown

dragged heavily

with the weight

of life…

but now...

joyous with the blossoms of spring…

with new life

I am recalled

light of heart

free of soul

I move forth speedily

into a future

I cannot see

but yet know…

Filled With Something Grand…

I am filled with something so grand

I cannot put a name to it

More splendid than a rainbow

A joy embedded so deeply

Within my heart…

Within my being…

Radiating throughout my body

And as it passes through me

It leaves in its wake

A rush of deep gratitude…

A love that spills from my eyes…

I send it to you

Do you feel it?

Right there…radiating from your heart

Pass it on…

“Blizzard” of October 29, 2011–Bronx, NYC

storm-tossed trees

A view from my window of storm-tossed trees

fall-colored leaves barely visible

heavily-laden branches swaying

to the rhythm of an unexpected wild

winter wind

snow monsters

huge, tentacled monsters

crawl slowly along the

snow-whitened grass

overtaking the bench

where I sat

just yesterday

in a quiet

autumn

moment

my river

windswept and snow-covered

my river lies barely visible

its autumn clothing

now covered in

winter’s garb

if i were an artist

If I were an artist

this would be an

oil painting

of my river

on october 29, 2011

 if i were a prolific artist

this would be a second rendition!
