•{ Seeing Possibilities . . .

Snow had fallen over night and the bright light of morning filled the atmosphere. She stretched as she stepped off her porch and headed out into the field.  It was a little chilly, but she didn’t mind, it was the perfect weather for clearing her head and it that was certainly something that was needed.

“Hey there ole’boy,” she said to Hygee – her reindeer – as she settled down next to him in the field.  The warmth he admitted was all she needed to fend of the chill. “What’s on your mind for today?”  He replied with a snort and a shake of his head and she looked down to the hot cup in her hand and laughed.

“I know you don’t like it, but this stuff is magical.”  She slid down in the snow and let out a sigh before taking a long pull of her drink.  “You know what?”  she asked, turning her head to look at her companion for the morning. He fixed her with a look that was partially skeptical.  She brought the cup up to her lips, the smile she wore betraying her. “I’m actually looking forward to something.”

Hygee huffed and nosed the snow.  As for her? She looked out at the cold winter day and saw nothing but possibilities.

•{ Sunsets and Meetings . . .

A few days ago she had worked up the nerves to call up her friend and ask if he’d like to met her for a late afternoon picnic. She sound more confident than she felt and in giving him directions she was sure she must have fumbled it up. She was infamous for getting lost.

Everything was set up. She had brought a lunch of sandwiches and wine, even a vintage inspired music player for ambience. What if he doesn’t show, she thought to herself as she sat on the bench and looked out into the distance. A frown tugged at her lips and she shook her head dismissively.  He’d come. Time ticked by and squirrels started to invade her set up.

“Shoo!” She waved at the animals. “You’re not welcomed here. Go away.”

“Well if that’s how you feel I’ll turn back around,” came a familiar voice from behind. She didn’t have to turn around to know it was him. “Your directions are terrible.”

She pulled her legs up on the bench so she could turn and get a better look at him. “You made it!” Trying not to sound too surprised and excited, or let her nervousness show through.

“After deciphering your text.” He admitted as he walked around to the front of the bench, scattering a few lingering squirrels at the same time. He pulled his phone  out of his hoodie’s pocket and read from the screen. “Come up from the path and I’ll be on the other side of the old shack.” He put the phone back and looked at her, an amused smile on his face. “How’s anyone suppose to follow that?”

He was trying to be funny. She gave a languid shrug. “I told you I – oh!” He sat so suddenly on the bench that it startled her but it was the reaction he was wanting. She looked away from him to catch her breath.

He didn’t say anything for a moment, only watched her and how the light played shadows across her skin. Leaning forward he offered her his hand and simply said, “Come here.”

Only words, but they were the introduction to an array of possibilities. And, after a moments consideration, she turned and took his hand.

•{ I Am Woman

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.

I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman

Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

•{ Her soul was tired . . .

Her soul was tired.  The things she had seen of the world weighed heavily upon her heart and chipped away at her disposition. However, now was not to time to give up and walk away from the world. She only needed a break.  A moment to close her eyes and recharge before going back out into the world to bring light.

But her soul, her soul was so tired.

•{ The day everything changed . . .

I remember like it was yesterday.

The sky was bright blues and the clouds were white. A troupe was setting up for the carnival which was to happen in a few days. The whole place was abuzz of activity. Then it happened. The ground erupted as bombs pelted the ground and suddenly the air was filled with chemical gas and smoke from fires.

Panicked screams replaced the sound of birds and the gurgle of the fountain. People dropped to the ground, some dying, others buckled over in pain. I was one of the latter. As I laid on the ground, my body wracked in pain, I saw men in mask walk through the gas ladened air. Some carried bags and a few of them dragged a flat wagon.

To weak and disoriented, the living were rounded up and tubular devices were implanted in their arms. I don’t know what it was for, but the moment I received the impact I was able to breath better. The dead were tossed in the wagon. The men with mask left as suddenly as they had arrived and gates were erected over the city to keep us from getting out

And that was the day everything changed. . This city use to be so pretty. Full of color. Full of life. Now it’s just a wasteland and the people, well, we are something else.

•{ I tried, but . . .

Nothing works as it should. I can’t even tell what I’m doing at times. I seek to make sense of the clutter in my mind but it’s looking all the same to me. Nothing but empty vessels that bring no clarity. All these pretty things surrounding me…

I try but, really it’s only a beautiful disaster.
