A Chair Awaits

A chair awaits
Cascading streams of water
Sounding gentle ripples
Leaf, stem, rock and moss
Bathed by the warming sun
Brilliant be the held light
A chair awaits

  1. "Brilliant be the held light" is beautiful. I want to sink into that chair, Rose Marie.

  2. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. Wonder whether you play an instrument, or sing?

    I hope that chair is awaiting me--I'll take turns with karen...

  3. And now Steve I am one with the "grin" picturing you and Karen playing musical chairs... - In answer to your questions, I sing - but only for God and children - I read/perform poetry for any and all audiences - and I play at the drums, harp, and a variety of percussion instruments. In addition to being an educational therapist, I am also a sound therapist - I paint, write, blog, and consider myself one happy camper. I plan to revisit and enjoy your offerings and invite you to do the same. I'll be sure to have a chair at your disposal...

  4. What a sweet response. Thank you! I'm a violin player, symphony by trade. Strolling around tables, funerals, weddings, and at mass on Sat and Sun now that 'retirement' has set in.

    I too love life, and just about everyting else. It was not always thus....

    God is Gooood. thank you for taking the time to answer my queries. It is always a great pleasure to meet a happy someone--I'm thinking there are not a whole many of us.

  5. Well here we are orchestrating a Happy Encounter... Just finished listening to Debussy, Preludes, Book 1 and ready to post a "poetic" response...

    Would love to hear you play.
