each day i see you struggling to move along the rugged path of innocence leaning upon emptiness promises peace love bliss forever you a sacrificial offering on the altar of belief hold fast to terra firma never daring to take flight tho the flames rise all around
What a vivid and beautiful poem, and the picture (which I assume you took) is amazing. You posted a note on one of my recent poems, and I’m glad you did. This blog is magnificent. I look forward to spending some time here.
well, faith is a way of life to me but not blind faith. very wise poem charles. i just dont have the power of cherishing blind faith.
to terra firma
to take flight
tho the flames
rise all around”

This one could be interpreted in more ways than one…. I wonder what you thinking as you penned this one…
This hawk is such a stand out against the saturated blue… what a treasure to have caught these on camera…
Oh oh! 😀
I’m enjoying the tone and perspective of your hawk chronicles, Charles. Wonderful poetry
“leaning upon emptiness
…on the altar of belief”
“the rugged / path of innocence” — how well we, who believe what others tell us, know this trail through the wilderness not of our making. Nice, Charles.
Your writing is amazing, infinite space and stillness between the lines…. thank you for sharing this with the world.
