Surge

Not going to bring the house down
Even when it feels like it.
Can’t quite do much else
Keeping my body moving despite it.
 

I was going to take part in this wonderful prompt from eclecticoddsnsods, but then my neck went off and I became more limited for a bit. I’ll have to wait and see if I’m able to do it later this week. This was certainly a wrinkle in my plan.

Sunday Morning Stillness

The air is still,
No worries here.
Rest and watch
The sun heat,
The sky blue
The wind still.
And yet…
There’s so much more here.
 
Tall grass rustles:
Cats stalk through,
Dogs following, curious,
Snakes moving to get away…
Ducks quack,
And birds chirp,
Don’t let the whistle fade.
 
Flowers grow,
Their scents sublime
And yet I want you to be mine.

Not written for any specific prompt, just a little something about this morning around the house. The picture is my cat, Usako, finding my eldest niece’s paper flower and checking it out. She’s a curious little thing who also likes to ambush people
