Now, This is Living

A little poem for you- Happy Friday!-L


Walk barefoot

in ocean's powder at dusk,

on Earth's satin cushion,

down a muddy path,

under Corkscrew Willows,

in a summer downpour.

Listen,

the Woodpecker is in the Dogwood;

wind is sweeping the leaves;

thunder claps behind the sun.

Now, this is living.



(Go Yankees)

that sounds like a post i did on january 1st 2008, 'LOOK RIGHT THERE IS A WOOD PECKER ON THAT TREE AND THEN I TOOK A PICTURE' and people then had to believe cause the proof was in the pudding or in other words proof positive was the picture of that very woodpecker in that tree in january in the snow in the winter

A wonderful poem!

But I didn't realize there were barefoot Yankees (even -- or maybe especially -- the baseball type).

Loren Christie said...

Those Yankees are rich enough to never be barefoot. :)

I love the deep message in your poetry. What you are saying is you want me to go to a Yankee game!

Loren Christie said...

Milkman, Well, you almost got the message, except for the ask me on a date part. Typical guy mistake.

Dear Internet Traveler,

Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.

Fondly,

Loren Christie
