Spirit of the Air

she rests in gentle repose, a spirit of eager curiosity, shining brightly, her wings held out in readiness for flight into a promised future crafted from the fabric of early morning dreams, aglow in anticipation This post is for day 83 of 365 Days Wild.

Awaiting Amity

a solitary figure, she stands: wild spirit encapsulated in a flair of individuality, greater for her innovation; lonely all the same – she awaits amity This single, lonely flower stem stands at the meadow’s heart.

Out for Dawn

gunpowder grey clouds shift, as night swiftly fades, lightening with tints of mauve and lavender and apricot, with a burst of fresh peaches sweetly tanging across newly awakened senses, both promise and warning combined: time is short; make it count For day 36 of 365 Days Wild I walked out in the early hours to … More Out for Dawn

Scientifically they’re called Leucanthemum vulgare, but they’re more commonly known as the ox-eye (or oxeye) daisy or the dog daisy. Other names include: field daisy, … More Pennies

Illumination

follow a trail of sunbeams
into the veiling mist of lies
and deception that seeks
to obscure each ancient
truth held sacred within
ancestral bones; watch
in awe as full illumination
is achieved, revealing an
existence alight with joy … More Illumination

Here and Now

caught in an echo chamber
with an ever ticking clock,
where days and weeks smoosh
into unnumbered sleeps as
human measurements of time
are abandoned to irrelevance … More Here and Now

Be Still

to be still: to stop for a
moment and listen to the
birdsong outside the … More Be Still

Symphony

out where nature’s solitude
soothes rampant fears of social

swelling melodies as birdsong
choruses greet dawn’s touch … More Symphony
