No Explanation


Toes to the edge, arms wide

& upon butterfly wings, I dive

To be deafened by wordless songs

To skydive beneath dried water

& float on wingless feathers

So let’s get lost

& hold my hand to climb

Let’s risk those deeper waters

To run naked through the garden

To watch a turtle mid-float

as hope rises in the rain

For this is nature’s gift

of a life lived

with no need to explain.

(Consider this my excuse/explanation for my absence from WordPress these past few weeks…)

  1. Beautiful words – and your pictures, as always, are stunning. Hard to imagine anything more perfect. I love the phrase “as hope rises in the rain” – that’s an absolute cracker.

    No excuses or explanation needed – welcome back, we’ve missed you 🙂

  2. I guess that may be the secret to being answerable only to yourself when taking a chance?… Again, thank you for your comment, Shannon, it very much appreciated.
