What Happened At The Oxbow

Resisting Spring,
wishing dark clouds
would continue
blocking out the Sun
that tries to warm my hurts.
Why? I ask. I would prefer
to stay right here
under this blanket of clouds.
Crocus replies,
you are looking down.
Lift your face to the Sun,
notice the Eagle soaring high,
inviting you to fly
for another Spring.

  1. Yes. Looking up will make all the difference. I don't know the Oxbow, but I know that an invitation from an eagle would make a difference.

  2. looking up when someone yells "Heads!" is not always the wisest choice. :) ~

  3. That's often the mistake. One tends to be not bothered with matters that rightly affect us until it is too late! Nicely Marian!

  4. Your direct little verse tells the truth, terse. Your life will go where you place your vision.

  6. Yes, I know that feeling of wanting to crawl back under the protective blanket of rain and clouds. Not ready to be out in the open and sharing the world with so many other people again. You have put it out there so brilliantly. The reverse will happen in October.

  8. This is wonderful, Marian. I know the feeling...there were years when I wanted nothing more than to hide.
