Portraits Poetry Series #59: Sometimes I See Myself

In case you haven’t been here before, I love writing prompts – whether a list of words, one word, or even an image.  With these posts, I have written poems specifically about paintings and I hope, with my words, you see the scene just as visibly in your heart and mind as if you had seen the image itself.


Portraits Series
Sometimes I see myself
in the movement of trees
the long stretch
toward daylight
seeking the sun
seeking the warmth
of something beyond my dreams
and I reach – I reach
and I soak in the moment
I sway in the sun.
The breeze blows gently
I hear the shaking of leaves
and I can feel myself
glide upon the wind
I am free –
the sound is sweet
and lulls the heart
full of life and movement
I sway along
I sway along
I close my eyes
and see myself
in the gentle movement
of trees.

      Thank you very much beautiful lady. I do hope you recuperate and start feeling like yourself soon. Will miss you but will cherish the thought you are taking care of yourself, which is much more important!
