Language leaves me
lacking expression.
Dialogue diminishes this
profound impression.

What verse could comprehend?
Oh that rhymes might pretend.
What eloquent exchange defines
inspiration's intend?


oh here is where I find you...
your muse, leave you?
I think not....
do you know, you just keep getting better and better in your writing, I am a fan..
and your heart....the same wonderful heart I know and love...
Hugs to you doll....I could feel the missing in this....

Ron... yes, I do know... and so, you know too what it means to me...
Thank you for all that you taught and shared with my moody(long winded) muse.  

Donna... thank you for such a kind and encouraging reply...my muse is much quieter these days...and it took me a long time to get to here--but I am ok with that...I think I feel the words and emotions on a deeper level now and perhaps just dont need to purge every thing in rhyme and verse anymore.  At times I miss writing on a regular basis but not as much as I miss the company of the source of inspiration.  

thanks again to all who shared some of you with me on this.



I would love to live as a river flows, carried by the surprise of its own unfolding.

Your words strike with such depth Janet, one cannot read them without feeling! Take care!

Honey...this seemed like a nice place to add my thanks...for adding my words to your wonderful photoplay...

the link you sent me - put me right up there to the top of the redwoods...and let me fly a little while with the eagles...

thank you, sweetheart.

Kari...youre so very welcome
thank you for endulging a moth with your gifted muse. And its cool for me to be able to share the beauty that I find hiking the moth trails.

If I send you a few rocks, paint, and a brush, then maybe you could paint pictures on the rocks to tell the story!!!! Yes, stick figures work.

Seperation?????  Didn't ya bottle up the tide and take it with ya?  
----------------------

I like seeing ya stretch in your writing and you already know from our conversations what I think of this one but just wanted to remind ya just how very cool this was.  

You know I know what's behind this and I still see your footprints on the beach when I go.

here and holding this.
and thinking of the talks i've had with a friend about braiding veins or wishing for some kind of device that pours what's really in your head or heart into hands, it would be something fluid, that swirls and expands, something much more than paper and ink, and so i think i understand that want for something more than language to not tell but /show/ because really, how can it know,...and again, gosh, i am off and rambling. i begin responses to poetry i've read and either am only able to leave short notes of appreciation or these babbling thoughts that i should probably be keeping to myself.
good to read you. this. ~a.

Mark ... yes....I know that you know...
as always your perspective enlightens me.
We are long over due for making new footprints. I've gotten far too good at missing you and the ocean...but thats to be expected when something & someone has become a part of who we are. TY MC.

Alicia...HEY GIRLIE...its so good to see your name here...hows it going groovy gal...thank you so much for your insightful reply..."braiding veins" ( oh man, how cool is that) you dont ramble...you recite
Ive been on a break from here..I just moved and still trying to find my life in boxes and bubblewrap. Hope to see more of you.

I would love to live as a river flows, carried by the surprise of its own unfolding.
