In my minds eye




I will
always
see

these mountains.

What is it about

mountains,

that causes your
heart
to connect

to your head?


I (often) feel
'a bit like' Meryl
S. in the movie
"Out of Africa."


"Will these
hills know
my name?"
"When the dew
melts in the sun,
will it lift up
into heavenly
places of light
with an essence
of who I once
was?"

"Will the red
clay
dirt
remember

the place
where
my foot

once rested
as I stood?

  1. Oh I think they will remember, just as they remember those who came before. What a lovely thought.

  3. I might be feeling 'soulful' and in need of perhaps comfort. This post apparently made my Mother cry today (as per her e-mail.) My sister, Debra Lynn (Debbie), passed away 4 years ago on this date. She was just 17 months younger than I am. She bravely battled cancer for 17 years. She worked as an R.N. almost up until she passed away. Debbie is survived by three children; my two nieces (Jackie and Jessica) and a son, Matthew.

    Thank you for your comments Lynn and Talon!
    Hugs to you
    :)
