christmas eve

as the day reaches its middle
i rest in wonder
 a small river
not yet iced up, it's so warm
 calves enjoying good eating 
and naptime
this patient old man
who waits high in his pasture each day
for what?
~~~
wishing you peace
peace.

christmas eve was raging thunderstorms - christmas day is still and quiet - the kiddies have risen and delighted in santas offerings (EJ told me she saw the reindeers outside her window - they snorted and woke her up....) both kidlets are now hunkered down over lego right now..... all is good with the world - hope some of those sweet vibes make it in this message xxxx

ronnie, oh, they do, complete with lego!

think the old man might be looking down the little river that seem to have no end - maybe wondering how long it would take to walk to no end? the markings on him - forehead almost look like a little star - so he is the little christmas miracle that guided you through the woods...warmth to all and a special treat for wendy.

Such a peaceful post. Peace to you too Velma.

I'm reminded of this quote ...
"May peace and peace and peace be everywhere" - The Upanishads (c.900-600 B.C)

Peace and warmth to you Velma. I want to Know this old man horse, standing with his his head lowered, waiting for a scratch on the neck or a nibble of a treat. He's beautiful.

Velma Bolyard said...

mo c, thank you
nancy, i tried to scratch him, but he was a bit shy, which leads me to think he gets little attention.
