A vision


as I look at the moon
high and bloated
I spy wild horses
a cowboy tipping his hat
smiling, no ragged breath
his loved and lost ones
beside him
at last
I feel the wind, drying my tears
taste salt on my lips
I see ancient and wise trees
a couple of weeping willows
bees buzzing lazily at the edge of a fragrant meadow
I hear the sweet soft melody of a small waterfall

there are no angels
no false divine artefacts
no temples
no religion, cold and hard
no god and no heaven
for us unashamed heathens
but a kingdom
of our own making
where pain, loss and fear
are absent
a place made of fragments
of our hopes and dreams

“howdy” says he
“do not cry for me, I am at peace”
“I know”, says I, wiping my eyes
“I have seen it
with my mind
feel it with my heart
as your light shines
in my life

*I wrote this not tonight but the night before as I was looking at the (almost full) moon which always robs me of my sleep. My thoughts were drifting towards the very special person who’s been on my mind a lot lately-as I strive to send him as many positive vibes as I can-and he inspired those lines. I didn’t post it before because I wanted him to read it first and tell me whether he approved, whether I had got *it* and *him* right. He said I had, which made me so very glad *

    1. Thank you, Vic. The full moon messes with me every time! Lol
      Can I ask, has WP been okay for you? It’s been crashing all day and I haven’t been able to read any posts – AND when the reader does load for a few minutes, it all looks WEIRD! They’ve made another one of their disturbing changes 😳

      1. It hasn’t been crashing for me but it was doing this weird jumping around thing. I’d go back and have to scroll forever to find my place. I almost gave up and then it refreshed and was all of a sudden a totally different thing. It’s small strips of content now. I don’t know. It works but yes, they are fucking around with it again.


      2. Yes, small strips of content and I hate it! Haha
        But what annoys me the most is the crashing, it’s still doing it and I’ve managed to read like, only 10 posts in the last hour 😑

    This is celestial. You brought me with you into such a lovely, loving place. Beauty!
    Oh, WP & the moon? I just spent half hour trying to change the settings of my reader feed. Mon Dieu! at Least I found the culprit, WP messed with the Reader, thought i’d lost my mind or was in the Mandela Effect again! :p

    πŸ’• Much love to you, beautiful amazing girl !

    1. Thank you so much, gorgeous! I’m glad you liked as I put my whole heart into this one πŸ’œ
      Yes, WP has done one of its customary incredibly annoying tweaks, to which end do they mess with something that worked perfectly fine before, I have no idea!
      Have a beautiful day, you lovely soul πŸ˜˜πŸ’ž

  2. Another delicate offering for your friend. Beautiful words and imagery, I loved the description of the positive cowboy with his rugged charm. Also I had to smile at the sound of the kingdom for the “unashamed heathens”: sounds like a fine place!

    1. Thank you so much, Adam. It does sound like a fine place, doesn’t it?
      I’m so pleased you liked because as you know, it was written for a brave and beautiful heart. Have a great day, you (lovely) scoundrel πŸ˜‰

      1. Adam, I replied with my feedback. I loved it, man! I probably went too far in the whole psychological analysis thingy but I can’t help that I’m afraid πŸ˜‰
        It should be in your inbox now.
