Recall Your Dreams

Sunrise at the end of December ©️Merril D. Smith 2020

I am after beauty–
searching for it, an old friend
who vanished, but returned

~in the glorious pink of dawn~

the moon sings farewell
as she sets over the blue river,
and a heron soars white

~in a soft wind-whisper~

I hear life,
in shadowed language, full of ifs,
it murmurs,

~recall ~

your dreams,
the scent of summer rain,
the light after the storm clouds part.

It’s been quite a year, hasn’t it? And it may get worse before it gets better. But I decided to consult the Oracle, and she’s given a hopeful message. Happy New Year to all of you!
(This started as a Puente, but it just kept going, sort of like this year.)

  1. What a beautiful picture, the delicate black tracery against the pink!
    I love that idea of beauty being like an old friend who turned up again 🙂 Must visit the Oracle. I knew there was something I had to do this evening.

  2. What a fabulous picture to go with this beautiful puente (who says there can’t be more than one bridge crossing a winding creak?)
    So lovely to read an uplifting message on this, the last day of a year that had so many challenges of all sorts but, when we tried to, we found some beauty.

  3. Oh. Hit send too quickly!
