Magpie Pie Tales-Points of Life


Wheat Field with Rising Sun, Vincent Van Gogh, 1889


Resting on a mountain top
A cool wind moves across
The valley
Revealing a field of color
Alive and moving
A patchwork of light
Memories
Float through my mind
Max jumping over a fence
My nephews laughing 
A first glance from the man I love 
Red hot
Canyonlands
Zion
Bryce
Blue Sky
New Mexico
Dust and grit
Of the trails and life
White cool 
Smooth genius of
Bernini's Apollo and Daphne
Rustling of olive leaves in Tuscany
A gondolier's oar as it moves
Through the Grand Canal
Like a wildfire
Moments of time
Speed through my mind
So many
Points of light
Life
Eagles cry
As I descend
The future before me.
