WALKING ON THE WINDS OF MORNING

Beautiful photo made for me by


Traveler walks
on the winds of morning,
gentled by the soft mist,
attuned to the music
of the spheres.

Tiny birds alight
on her shoulders,
then lift off, twittering,
to follow her passage,
branch to branch,
through the sleepy forest.

She is Sky-Woman.
Though her feet are planted
on the earth,
her eyes never leave
the sky.

There are footsteps
softly padding along
behind her.
She does not turn
to see who comes.
She knows.

He is invisible,
but she knows those perked ears,
that arching tail,
that long black snout.

Walking on the winds of the morning,
their two spirits touch
through the veil of mist.
Their two hearts
are never
apart.


One from 2011, my friends, which I will share with the Poetry Pantry at Poets United this Sunday.

  5. Wow, Sherry, what a coincidence...I had a dream about my dog last night ... I still miss him so after all these years. It's true they never leave our side and there must be a doggy Heaven for sure as they still watch upon us. A lovely poem about such faithful companions. :)

  6. The last stanza remains true throughout time. Their two hearts are never apart.

  9. The poem gives me such a sense of serenity when I read it. And there is the lovely touch of the other-worldly in the birds guiding the Sky-woman on her journey, and her telepathic connection with the wolf.

  21. Well, what can I say? Exquisite - beautifully drawn. You are the scribe-woman of the forest mystic and mysterious ... giving words to that magical, ethereal connection between humankind and nature.

    I must try to carve out a bit of time with a cup of tea and have a good catch-up read of your blog, Sherry. Where does the time go?

  22. This took me back to my childhood when to escape to the dark woods was a regular delight and my imagining that I was one with that world was wonderful.

  23. Someone is watching over us, Sherry - depending on who we believe in. I love the religious undertones to this one.

  24. I see images of this earth/sky walk of the beloved walking like Orpheus and Eurydice, but with better outcome.
