Living With the Wind

Image by Engin Akyurt from Pixabay
She loved living 
with the wind
 
Her feet on the ground 
and her head in the clouds 

The wind took her 
by the hand and
she followed

Like a kite 
not meant to be 
earthbound 
 
She bestowed her love 
with abandon 
but her attentions 
were brief

For the wind
would call to her

Yet, like a fragrance 
you can't quite name...

for a few, 
she lingered
 
For those, 
she left longing 
in the night
never to be forgotten

And those few
whispered her name

Seeking the girl
living with the wind

REBLOG:Iridescence — Heartstring Eulogies

THIS IS A REBLOG FROM HEARTSTRING EULOGIES’ BLOG.  Please Visit this amazingly talented writer’s blog and enjoy this beautiful piece of her work as well. 

“As if the moonlight came from within her, she beckoned me to come home.” The cracks in her iridescent, porcelain cheeks were illuminated from within, lit aflame on that dark, wintry night. It was as if the moonlight came from within her. Her eyes, unwavering, locked with mine. Captivated me. And it felt as if […]

Where the Crawdads Sing-Review

I so love this book, I am sure that it will be a classic read well after I am dead and gone. I’ve been wanting to write about this beautiful book for some time, but wanted to be sure that I had enough time to devote to it. To say that this book is Beautiful, is an understatement. It’s like reading poetry. But the story is so compelling that it pulls you in and carries you along for this achingly deep and gorgeous adventure right away. I was taken aback by the language used. I would gasp out loud and the eloquent way Delia Owens described things in this book. Lines that were so beautifully written, they will leave you in awe.  

This is what Amazon says about this book: 

For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life–until the unthinkable happens.

Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps. 

Where the Crawdads Sing was written in 2018. I have no idea how I missed this book back then, but I am sure glad that I found it.  I haven’t had a book touch me this deeply or this profoundly in ages, if ever. I could gush on and on about this amazing author and book, but I have a better idea. READ THE BOOK. You will be glad that you did. I found this to be a little slow at first, but once the story got going, I couldn’t stop and finished it quite quickly.  

Enjoy!

Back Then

Yesterday's ink
gives a view
into my thoughts
of you
back then 

Back then
tomorrow was never
spoken

Today's view
has been tarnished
by the soot
on the panes of glass 

Smoke from the fire
that once burned   

For you

Back then

Reason to Smile

He smiles 
to himself 

remembering the 
moments shared  

his smile reflects 
a lifetime 
of laughter & tears 
pleasure and pain 

his skin remembers
her touch
 
his soul remembers
her love

although she's gone 
nothing 
can take away 
the reason 
for his smile

When I Dream

When
I Dream
It's About You
always has been just
You 

No
other person
could ever be
my one and only 
Love
