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
Float through my mind
Max jumping over a fence
My nephews laughing 
A first glance from the man I love 
Red hot
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
Eagles cry
As I descend
The future before me.
C.M. Jackson 2011

...i like it when someone uses a mythological figure like Daphne and Apollo (gracious lovers..) in expressing a thought... lovely!(:

This is beautiful ~ I especially enjoyed the Italian reference ~ this painting also reminded me of Tuscany.
