Wisdom - The Rancho Commons — LiveJournal
Note to self: no whining, no slacking
Days fold, one on another
  infinitely thin
and light
I breathe within
covered and comforted
counting translucent ((rings))
of time and memory

Secret folds turn
  and years of simplicity
become intricate
origami swans
I am carried
over troubled waters, where
I thrashed as a youth

Terrified and purified
  I have emerged
passing through
crystalline palaces of time
Unafraid of life
scathed but unscarred
I have walked through fire

Now wiser hands
  furtively weave
mysterious cloth cascading
and faultless
as a wheel spins clay beyond mortal hands
and casts it, anxiously
around the cradles of my sons

Thank you. I woke up this morning very early with only about 4 hours of sleep. I thought, for no obvious reason, "Days fold, one on another, infinitely thin and light" and could not go back to sleep. And now that I've gotten it out of my system. I need a nap!

That's a good one. Eloquent comment, don't you think? *sigh* Writer's block. At any rate, I like that one...very well written.

Block? I would think you would be extremely inspired right now :-/

Thanks for the comment though. Even when people just say, "I like this." it is much better than not getting comments! I'm trying to remember this in my LJ meanderings.

Absolutely beautiful imagery! This leaves such a lovely picture in my mind--thanks for sharing it.
