Peach.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Make me a winter chill
that sweeps the greens, past that sleepy hill

teach me to love the arid sand
grows the trees, the nut of pistachio land

slow but certain I will grow
it’s my refuge, breathing your smell and snow

if not given hopes
where will I land in those slippery slopes?

from quietness that’s me
a shell in which I am in, to escape in to thee

oh no, leave me not here
hung threadlike, gripping with unknown fear

Written on Dec 23rd 06 in piece of paper while on a crowded flight, thought to be lost with tickets. I got it back while searching for an air tag among the old boarding passes in my old laptop bag. The pic was a gift from a wellwisher that came by mail. I liked it instantly and the credits for the photo are not mine.

Awww that was a beautiful poem! And regarding your footnote, isn't it wonderful when we find things that we think we've lost ;) So you're one of those people who can block out a crowd and be one with your thoughts eh? I envy you.

Jac said...

I have a princess haiku and a princess kai here, so may I call you banter ?

Welcome to the window to my soul.

I do write at very odd places or I may loose it instantly.

Thanks for the compliment.

Hi Jac, thank you for visiting my blog.

Wow, this is lovely, the poem reminds of a truth......one my grandmother taught me, "we are the creation of nature, and all things come back to nature." Love the land where you were born and treat it as your home. We are of native american decent, and the land is all important to a native american.

Jac said...

Welcome to the window to my soul, and that flower pic in your blog still in my memory.

Your comment reminds me of how much we neglect the issue of nativity.

Thank you for the words and the feed back you gave me here.

Come again.
