Bless My Homeland (Refuge) Forever


BLESS MY HOMELAND (REFUGE) FOREVER

“Hello! Hello! So deeply grateful to return!”

I step gingerly into

where I belong

Where I can

breathe freely

and listen

to the bugle

of mating cranes

passing by

on their way to

somewhere else.

Somewhere else is not

where I wish to be

For I am a grateful soul

part hermit

Who ponders and piddles and kisses

all animals

Rescue Animals.

As I am also

a rescue animal

As I will always be.

At my refuge of croaking frogs

cottontail bunnies

art

music

dance

And my precious treehouse looking over

a lake of blessings

for my soul.

February 10, 2014 Meldrum Poetry Workshop  It is the death date of my son who passed many years earlier.  I have had surgery. Grateful am I, to friends and family.
