Between us


First signs of light here this morning.....
to the east there’s a band of clouds rising from the Cascades;
it looks almost like a giant ocean wave
headed our way....


              “Let there be calm seas, William.”


Now it’s a blanket;
the mountains are too lazy
to get out of bed.


[From an early-morning email exchange with a friend]

We’re in a rather large temporal room, aren’t we, my friend.

Yes, indeed we are.

I feel like I'm evesdropping, which I don't particularly mind :) I don't know, and don't want to know, why how the clouds hold so much light and mood. I prefer to watch them in mystery. Oh to see them from my bed!!! I need to move it, and open the drapes, jump back under the covers in my goose bumps. I ceiling made of glass. That's what I need. *sigh* but who would clean it?

Annie I can see
quite clearly:

this is no time
to be practical.

It's a calm time of weather. Fall is the best! Of course, so are the rest.

William Michaelian said...

Exactly. Thanks, Peter.

This is killer GREAT, like an excellent guitar solo that makes me sigh with awe!

And like that guitar solo, your kind words will be stuck in my head all day....
