Lifeflight

Apologies…
To all my fellow bloggers for my lengthy absence.

Due to a severe groin injury, I have been undergoing
treatment and therapy (ugh!)—and consequently have
been unable to keep up with my daily chores, hobbies
and fun stuff, including blog postings, visiting other
bloggers’ postings and responding to comments.
My wife has set up a standup station for me (during my
better-feeling moments) to work with my more important
computer stuff.

Hopefully I won’t be sidelined for only a few more weeks.

Everyone— please be safe and have a wonderful day!

Kiss (from the Time Capsule)

like
solitary Cinder uplift’d
by the song of Nature’s breath
fades the melody
fades her wings
to alight upon a needle of pine
to slumber
to emerge from her cocoon
a candle of hope
an armor’d torch
scourge of the Forest
drown’d into ashes
the starving Ground
to suckle new saplings
richer than before

so too
a simple peck from your lips to mine
shall inflame the bond of our flesh
till our spirits slip into th’ Innerworld
where all seasons are one
Night to his pillow of dreams
as squints Day and stretches her light
to awaken Love beyond measure
