clouds

summer for me
is a time of turning inwards
and outwards
at the same time

slow and sometimes
even deliberate
turning

a time of doing
and undoing

creating and recreating

invoking
and revoking

and in the quiet times
we meet
(my self and i)
in the clouds
that pass overhead

and we talk
and listen
about all that is and was
and even what might be

laughter
yes there's plenty

wistfulness
yes some

as we turn
inside and out
within and without

elisabeth - you read me like a book. i'm caught this week between finishing the home projects and beginning the school setup work that will be a little more challenging this year as i'm teaching two grades. turmoil, beauty, confusion and grace will be te guiding features of the next two weeks i'm sure!! steven

You're on a photo roll....! Last few days I've been revising classes and syllabi and getting ready for school that starts next Friday. College starts early, but we get out in early May, so, trade-off. Mixed blessing, starting up, it so very inspiring to teach, though my time of internal focus will shift next week... with the seasons, and so it is.
