how do i say
'thank you so very, very much'
in a way that will fill and warm your hearts
the way you did mine
the words you left for me in my previous post
not only lifted me up
they also pushed me forward
i now have a new found strength and attitude and all of you are responsible for that
yesterday called for a walk. outside.
the dried reeds at my adored pond, have fallen all over each other and lay in a tangled mess, forming a rickety platform that now encourages me closer to the water's edge.
it's so quiet at the pond. those with wings have gone south.
the turtles. where are the turtles.
the missing muskrats. do they all hibernate.
living breathing animals
have been replaced with naturally made wooden replicas
just waiting to be found by a girl in her hiking boots
not afraid to get too close
what do you see. a fish. a shark. a ground hog.
all i know is that whatever it is.
it was looking at me.
