A May Interlude

I like
Frilly orange edges
On dark purple centers

Blue misted silhouettes of hills
Dark blue lochans
In brown-umber hills
Dotted with sheep

Ocean tumbled rocks
rounded to the curve of your hand
blue brown purple grey, striped like Easter eggs
or wrinkled with seasons of water and dust

Cattle on the hill at twilight
Dancing in the rain
The ocean mixed with my own heartbeat in my ears

sitting in the golden light
watching it all.

Hayden and terri, thanks for helping me remember to appreciate this gift I have. I hope never to forget but I do miss the States--my little corners of it: my family and friends and the familiar spots that marked it as home. I wrote a description of Dog Days of August in Indiana the other day just to see if I could do it. I don't want to lose that connection.
