by the hills

multiple f e e t
& arms wide blessed with
the f a r peaks view looking so near
my tongue can l i c k their iced tips.
legs of oaks holding our toes afloat as
if the drop is not 5,000 feet. consider
the wild strawberries outside, untouch-
ed yet blossoming under the winter air
some cicadas are here to do the night-
shift song as the thrushes take some rest
another golden morning will rise. don’t
forget to visit our little chicken coop to
get f o u r eggs for tomorrow’s break fast.

  1. I absolutely adore this, the imagery so delicious and sweet.

    the wild strawberries outside, untouch-
    ed yet blossoming under the winter air…”

    I love how this flows and just how it plays out in my mind’s eye. Such beautiful imagery.

  2. Hi, sister! I lost your blog and seem to have it again! This poem is beautiful: the mighty is still mighty but the small is mighty, too.

    I don’t know if I told you that I bought your first book of poetry, which I have enjoyed immensely. I hope you are healthy and really well, overall.

    1. Hi, brother! I was absent for some long gaps here but happy to have read your poems again. Thank you for your kind words and my heart hopped after learning that you got my book. Is it the Between my Bleeding Lines? That was quite filled with errors. (hides) But I am glad that you enjoyed it, otherwise. 🙂

      Thank you and I am well, overall. I hope you are, too, brother.
