I’m sorry sweetheart

don’t park that nose on me

I know where it’s been

Silence

websitemusicfermataWhile silence can be useful, or respectful, or loving

there are times when it is not right

Expect

Sometimes the road

is not at all

what we expect

but it is still

a road

Sometimes

kbsitepicscene080

I have sat on this bench loving and loved

no I will not carve it here

but I will sometimes remember

Wait

kbsitepicscene079And so a taste of late summer here at the ranch.  The cool reminds us that it doesn’t last forever.  Good to pull weeds for a bit, to let the hands be busy and the mind set free.  An orange band is along the tops of the trees, the last of the setting sky.  A single small cloud holds the last of the brilliance, shines just a little longer.  There is still beauty is says.  Wait for the night.

It will be gorgeous.

Times

kbsitepicscene077

There are times I know

I would have been better off

not to speak

or rather

to speak

without words

Others

kbsitepicscene076“So I begin to understand that some things are for the mind to handle.  Others are for the heart.

And it’s important to know which is which.”

Retreat

kbsitepicscene075And so a retreat of sorts, remembering what is important to me.

Nowhere near the shape of summer I had hoped for, a lesson in expectations.

I suppose that’s the downside of being able to envision, something so beautiful it’s hard not to hope.

But I will hope.

Still do.

Reminded

kbsitepicscene074And finally I was reminded

that there is beauty

long after the sun has set.

Slowly

kbsitepicscene073Slowly I became aware of the sky.
