She Knew

you have to journey

     through rough fires

to be able to stay in

     this world

is the journey

     worth it ?

she knew 

     it was when

     as she notices

     the rivers of rain falling

across a dark granite wall


she knew 

     when she hears

     the music of thunder

she knew when

     on a rainy day she

was able mellow 

     and dream

     she knew when she 

     felt the

Lost Her

 Featured image: Lost Friend

I have lost her  …..

Where did she go?

I know she is gone.

I don’t know where.

I miss her.  she is/was

so much a part of me, 

I try 

hoping to find her again.

trying to remember 

what made her come … 

what made her go

so I can find her again

but can’t

she is just gone.

I have lost her ….

I miss her.

watching her slowly
knowing her quiet thoughts
enjoying her enjoying
     the silence of the
     morning and those
wonderful morning thoughts
     paddling across
     the lake
as ripples of symmetric
     emerge with each paddle

Artists plunge into unknown territories and take a journey experimentation. An artist repeats this journey over and over.  There is no endpoint.  Many times artists travel back to where they began. Again,  the unknown of experimentation happens. The original origin spot cannot be repeated. Is the artist truly creative and an artist?

Luna Moth


Featured image: Luna Moth

On the edge of our cabin front door, right where the doorbell should be rested, is a beautiful, beautiful luna moth. Also called the American moon moth. How special for this moth to be at our front door and grace us with its stunning beauty.

Luna moth adults live for only about 10 days. Their sole purpose during this time is to mate and lay eggs. The eggs hatch into caterpillars which spend the next several weeks eating leaves. Once they have reached full size, the caterpillars pupate, and a few weeks later, the adult moths emerge. Online dictionary

Spiritually, the luna moth  is associated with femininity, creativity, and imagination. How appropriate that this particular moth was at our front door welcoming us, our creativity and imagination.

Spirituality: Luna moths can mean spiritual growth and enlightenment. Intuition: Some cultures think Luna moths can help guide people. Healing: Luna moths can represent the body's ability to heal. Transformation of consciousness: Some people see Luna moth symbolism to talk about enlightening experiences.
