Winding into Green

Winding into Green   Teri H Hoover

The wind dances into the curve in trail.
 Carry away this heart.

Entitlement   by  Teri H Hoover

Stiff  legged and self assured
the crow walks across the freshly cut grass.
A landlord surveying his property.

Visitng Eden By Jules Paige

From a wise and wonderful poetess friend.
Sweet as sunlight in the garden. Thank you Jules-

Visiting Eden By Jules Paige 
For Teri Hoover

In the garden was a stone bowl. Only ever filled with rainwater. The rocks -
they changed with mood swings. Reflecting the stars glow gently rippling
in autumn breezes. The stark grey of winter that threatened to take up
permanent residence in her heart. The robin’s egg blue sky of spring... and
in summer the amber stone embraced the sun’s warmth.

The ritual was private - shared only with the flora and fauna in all weather -
while not looking at her own mirrored face, fearing disconnect with the image -
she would change the placement of the stones.  Ever hopeful to keep rising.

Sunday Whirl #110- May  26, 2013
Rise by Teri H  Hoover
Finding love close
within fertile layers.
I anchor my heart 
to the curves of the current. 
Free to shift and yield
the range of this phrase riding a beam of light.

Long months of ripping away.
Lofting tatters connect and rise,

Sunday Whirl Words-beam, anchor, shift, close, heart, phrase,range, connect, current, fertile, layers, yield

From the stifling darkness
The colorful blooms
to breathe in the light
