One bird doesn't make Spring by Lonely Shepherd
friends don't stop asking why i don't
when for the words the will is lost
when the price they give, don't cost
but, pain and energy to the utmost
and then they ask whether i would
when for the rhyme i need a mood
while here in the town life is crude
no one knows, to live more if i could
i need to give my pen a breath
and on a paper ,i spit my wrath
i need a feeling soft not math
when you lost the blood it's death
i need the moutain to be strong
i need the fountain, oh , how i long !
i need to hear the twitter of bird
in the deep woods, there, is my world
the words don't come easy as before
they hurt the head and the heart's sore
they need a bird to twitter the rhyme
and a soft breeze to tune a time
if you have Spring here i don't sing
if you have butterflies, here no wing
if you have roses, i have thorns
if yours sings, here my bird mourns
it's not fair when fate is wrong
and the pit with worms throng
and the days for others are nights
and the nights for them are darks
to the world i say this word
you don't have to be poet with word
you have to be human with a feel
if you don't have that, yourself* Kill*
To my friends with my regards to *Silent One* maiinly.

when my yoga or my outside plans fail me, I hop on the treadmill. even pushed up against the wall surrounded by wetsuits and gear, it is my salvation. it is my sanity.

From one of my lovely Saturday hikes in Northern California.
I love the green flatiron Columbus Tower in North Beach. One of my favorite buildings in the City.
Love this shot - view to the northeast towards downtown San Francisco.

my new Vitamix blender and Breville juicer have turned me into the compost queen
I learned a lot at the new station at TMMC.
my flashback Friday is to celebrate the magic hour when daylight is redder and softer than other parts of the day. all sunsets are beautiful; however, there are two sunsets that were so magical to me their magic never escapes me. this sunset is from Kendwa, a village in Zanzibar in 2002, and it is one of the sunsets that I keep close to my ❤️.
