Cloudy Days, a Poem

Cloudy

A bolus of light shines weakly-

watercolored yellow... fitful...

bird hangs upside down on the seed bell,

earnestly tapping out his hunger-

green powdered chiffon hangs,

pocked with teardrops from random gods-

this day is sufficient in it's beauty;

wild rose bud hangs heavy,

almost reaching bluebells,

which almost reaches starflower;

which almost reaches moss

which covers the path in the woods...

somnolent birdsong, muffled noises

which could be many things...

the new moose calves,

or solitary black bear,

nothing man made intrudes

for the moment...

may these moments last a lifetime,

many lifetimes,

let the wild

be wild

just a little longer.

Lily, are you traveling? Contact Moon or myself darling. We are concerned about you. Emails bounce back as unable to be delivered. And thanks for another gorgeous poem.

Hyphen; I am receiving help for major depressive disorder. Yes, I am traveling, thru BC, the Yukon. Mary and I broke down for 2 days without a towtruck willing to come help us. We alsofound out there is no cellphone service for 400 miles at least, so Mary's loved ones werehysterical.

I have been trying to contact you and Clark, but there is no email option with my hubpages.

I'm sorry that i did not hear from C lark.We will be headed to the USA I guess. I'm just along for the ride, since my leg is broken and I can't work.

Oh thank you for replying so quickly. I am so happy you are okay. How did you break your leg? Where is Athena? I will let Clark know you are traveling and are alright although experiencing some trials. If you get way down here in the Southeastern US, I would love to see you. Email me if you want at hyphenbird@gmail.com. I hesitate to put my phone number on here. Much love to you dear one. Hy

Yes, Hy, we're O.K.. I broke my leg on the last frost of the year, early in the morning.

I will e-mail you, and thanks! I'd love to see you too, but not this time.We have to go back home due to these unexpected costs, Athena is with me, and Seven, and Bryce, Mary's grandson. Our main goal is his safety. I have to go, much love, lily

LILY--my dear girl, what do you mean you didn't hear from me! When you left that comment on my Hub about travelling thru BC, I replied immediately, with detailed instructions about how we could meet in Lac la Hache! Anyway, later on all that. You must be in SOUTHERN BC now, or you've already passed into Washington State. As it happens, right NOW I'm visiting my son and his family in Surrey, very close (15 mins) to the US border. i'll be here until about June 20. Here's my son's cell-----

604 418 6644. He'll know all about you. From about 2pm Wed. (June 18) I'll be visiting elsewhere hence unavailable for 24 hrs. BUT if we miss each other, it sounds like you,'ll be driving BACK soon, yes? My son will give you my home number and we'll hook up on your way North. For now, all you have to do is store that phone number safe. We'll make this work out yet!
