This is for us……
I scratch the earth
to plant a seed,
and watch it grow and bloom and green.
And I scribble these words
across a page,
to capture my heart as I wrinkle with age.
You splash fine colors
on a canvas blue,
with red and orange and all manner of hue.
And you scramble an egg
whipped together with ease,
adding onions and herbs to create a feast.
We dance upon life’s stage
playing on our heartstrings melodious sounds.
Oh this beauty of creation
we bring to life every day,
brightens our world in moments we give love away.

It has been almost a year since I have written here on this blog….since I injured my shoulder and had to listen to my body and really rest which meant no writing or gardening (I am right handed and the injury was to my right shoulder). I learned to be more left- handed….and it has been a good rest. I have discovered much about myself and my journey while away.
I had no clue when and how I would return to this blog and writing poetry. But the day my beloved Aunt Mary passed (July 3rd) I wrote a blog post on my other blog and 3 poems. This poem is one of them. It seems the floodgates are open again. This poem is based on my interpretation of a quote I used on my tribute post to my aunt. It captures my essence and my purpose these days and how much Aunt Mary has influenced my life. I hope you enjoy it.
… so this is for us.
This is for us who sing, write, dance, act, study, run and love
and this is for doing it even if no one will ever know
because the beauty is in the act of doing it.
Not what it can lead to…
I am joining Poets United for their Poetry Pantry linkup. The roses here have been blooming in my garden for weeks in honor of my Aunt Mary Rose.
I leave you with a another image about creating. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
