I want only the sun to warm me
Let it melt the blue day and make butter
of winter--go now--let me remember
when I was a wildflower bending the wind
to my will on strong stems--free

Oh the ease of letting the world pass
through me--being wild it let me be
Quiet now--settled in a bed of grass
for comfort--I am short of dreams
and long on thought
I need only the sun to warm me

Such a lovely write, Lin. It reminds me of when I was a child and I used to lie down on the grass and watch the clouds pass by overhead. I could dream for hours about what they represented. Thank you. Love and best wishes,

I especially love how it read as though I was listening

This is the "wondrous" time of life we the mature were allways taught was going to be "golden". I fear that what most of us have failed to realize is that inclination and declination have a common point.
Our needs remain the same, but the means by which we have to attain them
does not.

touching write,

You are a sensuous bloom, Lin, searching for light and warmth...a beautiful natural expression of awareness of place and of longing.
