Gone on Windsday



SPRINTER!  That’s what Dan Pope, the weather guy, would call recent Utah weather.  Ha! Poor Piglet. Feeling sad and lost these last two days in spite of children, a Fun Run, and lovely rain. Praying for one little boy and his mother who have been tossed like leaves in the wind.  Wanting to wrap my arms around them both in warm hugs and cozy woolen scarves.  Feeling safe and warm in writing silly poetry and listening to childhood stories.  Pooh and poetry are welcome distractions, if not frivolous fodder for better feeling.  Must go to Gratitude.

I hope this song plays.


“Tag you’re it!”
says Winter and Spring
in an annual juvenile fling

flirt with snowflakes
flirt with sun
Tug a windsock
toes undone

“Darn it!”
Full unfurled
Fickle friends
Fickle girls

“Tag, You’re it!”
in like and loss
Flipping hopscotch
Hoppy taws

Tossing coins
like good luck charms
Heads, you win
Heads, we’re marmed

Heads and hearts
Both ways some lose
Gone you’ve gone
Goodbye, School shoes.

“Each man ( and mermaid) will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land”. Isa 32:2 NIV Warning: The author of this blog is not an ordinary individual. Even Mermaids need a rest from all that's real and grown up. Welcome to the wonder of blog. Come be audience to all that's wet and wild in her stories, poems and thoughts. Instructor by day, super hero by night, and mystical mermaid by summer. Whenever she has the fortune of diving into a pond, reservoir, or mountain waterfall, you'll find her there swimming, and singing songs of life.
