prairie daze

claiming our daze and our days on the prairie

peaches for the morn

oh, to do something
to prepare (control?)
to tend
to nest
to make the way
to calm
to nurture…
i was tired enough to sleep
but took moments
to tidy the kitchen
wash a couple of ripe peaches
to have waiting
for the morning
on a wiped counter
on clean napkins
ready to eat
to welcome the day

    If you don’t submit this to somebody to publish, you’re crazy. Seriously. It’s moving, beauitiful, captivating, stunning, surprising, reflective, tender, made me want to cry, made me want to laugh, made me want to throw both hands in the air and scream “YES!!!!” You got it! You really do. You got it! Way to go. I love you more than words can express.
