Rainbow Cloud Caption Monday

Guest Photographer Kit Hewitt offers us these beautifully lit wispy clouds to stimulate our imaginations. I look foreword to what pictures, stories of poems this picture might stimulate.   And hey if you have photos of clouds send them along or let us know about your post. I’m willing to be a cloud clearing house.  Hmmm maybe in more ways than one. After all Light Words is here to brighten your day.

An Invitaion to Relax

Come on in

after all

“August is the

 Backyard of Summer”

have a seat and stay awhile

in the sun

in the shade

with a friend

or catch a nap!

Every where we went in Sanoma County there were Adirondack chairs. They are so comfortable. Which one do you prefer?  The lovely lady  in the big blue chair is my daughter.

Shadows Beneath the Surface

shadow beneath the surface

Can we see the creatures

Can we see sea creatures

that dwell beneath the surface

monsters of the deep

of our conscious perception,

legends of dragons

and opens ourselves up to the

fears and hopes

unconscious energies of our emotions,

Poseidon will save us, the Sea witch will steal our voices!

and to the submerged psychic

We will discover we have enough of everything we need

structures of our personalities?

and we are lovable and capable.

Found poetry. The bold faced words are from a sentence, I found and modified, describing what we may experience during the eclipse and the shadow words are my interpretation.

A Wednesday Ramble

A Ramblin’ Rose.

The red don Juan rose against the blue shingles was the reason

I chose to buy this house over 25 years ago.

A plumber cut it to the ground once

but it just keeps crusin’ up the side of wall.

For everyone who Beeped me yesterday I found this: A Labor of love that someone worked really hard to put together. It is perfect combination of the Art and Music of the 1950. Ramblers and Rock and Roll. The page after it you may find the Purple People Eater. How old were you when that came out?

Rambling With LeRoy

My grandfather always had Ramblers.

the big Ambassadors

the ones with a big wide shelf across

the back  so big I could lay on it

and watch big animal clouds

float by on  the drive to Oklahoma City

Then one year someone

talked him into an Edsel

he died the next.

Revenge of the Rambler

or curse of the Edsel?

or the end of a life

as a Wild Cater in the

Kansas and Oklahoma oil fields.


Interesting where I go when I let go and ramble. Thanks for crusin’ along with me. Happy ramblin’ one and all.

A Raiment of Indigo

After sunset

before the first star

a raiment of indigo

descends upon the earth

to entice us to

dress one another

in the colors of our dreams.
