By the Seaside

She spreads her wings
spanning higher ground
for a branch that will hold
providing shelter from the storm
instead of becoming one
with the run off.

Where a fly by night
flies by night
slapping flies on the wall
and time gets away
behind clouds
and assorted cloaks
that fall from grace.

While banging his head
against window sills
feigning a jilted lover
makes me wonder
about trees that need watering
not the ones wrapped in cellophane
for some kind of perverse pleasure
that flies by night.

With their magic branches
trees tap the sky
transforming our tears
into glorious cloaks
of the nightstorm

I enjoy this,  But I think I need a Thesaurus to help me understand it.
Or maybe It just needs to be, to be enjoyed.

The measureable parts of relationships seem to get much more complicated with each moment of passing time.  In many ways I can relate to what you have penned here.  I don't know that they are the same as yours but I can relate to my own.  I will definitely have to reread a few times.  Very much enjoyed.

I detect a certain sinister sound in this composition, but the main tone I perceive is unmistakably related to conscious feminine power.

Great write.

Love,
Margherita

Bluesy gal - This I understand only too well.  I don't know much but I do know that the branch was found.  Keep writing because you do it so well - you always have, you know.

Oh I like the way you move from one meaning to another, and you keep me hopping along behind you.

"She spreads her wings

~ As soon as I started reading, the above lines had already given me pause in ponder. I too have done likewise, but alas, there have been times when the branch did not hold...

May your wings keep you flying high and free and above the madding crowds!

Sounds like a strong woman, having her say, to me. Saying it very well.

    Wow, so many juicy lines in this write!

"about trees that need watering

Dang! lady I just read this entire thing again ... mercy ... for me this piece radiates with double entendre and boundless interpretations.  Wow, I definitely adore reading something that does not limit one's mind with boundaries.  Enjoyed!

Excellent write!

Janette

always seeking joy, adventure and romance and wishing you find the same

Enjoyed, my friend, in particular the first stanza ... and of course the new (to me anyway) picture....

I agree with Maureen.  You should rest your wings and treat us with something to read.
