What does she need right now?

Swirling
red cloak or sweater dress whirling
barefoot laughter
a waterfall of splashing children
wide open meadow of sun and flowers
long hair run wild
hands skimming top of ripe grains

You float far away
needing
compassionate cord
linking
two connected dots
mine
grows into a pot
an outflow of colorful gifts
creativity, vitality
source energy
yours
stays small
sinks deeper
awash in calm
I’m solid and quiet
we are two equals
But what piece
best serves you?

Freedom warmth
hearty soup
glowing hearth
hugs and giggles
a toasty feather bed
safety in roots
smoldering embers
a safe fire
cinnamon and cardamom
dozing off to peaceful sleep
soul knitting and
heart stitching

Rest

it’s time for others to till the fields
until winter
falls again
