warm shadows

to remember
the basic goodness
of this place

walk down a path
of copper brown pine needles
on a warm day

in the shadows
of their mothers and fathers

Good luck on your insane bike trip-You are brave!!! Insanely brave!

linda sue . . . i'm glad you liked this. i sure hope you got my thankyou note for supporting my insane bike ride. i loked over the map last night to see the route. oh brother! i'm nervous as it is but looking at it like that - well it'll be a good test of what my 53 year old body can do, accept, and then recover from!!! steven

The shadows are warming so your northern spring is well underway.

Love your words, your images, the way your heart beats. Thank you, Steven.

I grew up in the land of pine a kid, I thought there were only two kinds: pines and my Grandma's Dogwood. :)

Pines and I have a small disagreement in the spring when the pollen makes me sneeze, but then I go back to enjoying their straw for my flower beds and the cones make a great bird feeder for children to put together.

Warm, indeed - makes me think of cinnamon and spice and everything nice!

steven said...

pauline i'm glad that the peacefulness of that space made its way to you. steven

steven said...

reya - yeah warm shadows. i think that's what you throw when you get older and more at peace with yourself. steven

steven said...

hope i've always loved the sound of wind through a pine forest. the smell and the feel of old needles. the space between the trees. tough about the pollen for you. steven
