fading, my heart envisions
a ripe fig molting tan skin
lying like a sad mason jar
empty, left alone, with a scar
odors float like memories
sparrows sing their hope
your face a repeat movie reel
fingers weep aching to feel

Thank you Joni so much. I don’t plan on painting, this is just a little short trip across to Chios which is very close to Turkey. We will be here only 3 days. No painting, no writing, just enjoying a holiday! Have a great weekend and lots of love and blessings to you and Scott! ♥️🌹🙏🏻😊

Thank you so much sweetie. I appreciate your sweet words very much. Sending you great big hugs. Hope it doesn’t cook you there Katydid.

My absolute pleasure!!! And how lovely!!! I hope You have a wonderful time with Scott’s father! Very sweet! And yikes!!! I’m still in South Georgia! I lived in Arizona MANY years ago…so no.

Please don’t feel bad. This has been a problem with my site for at least ten months or more. When I read other peoples work, it may take hitting the like button up to three times before it stays on. I feel blessed that you take the time to read me. You are a blessing in my life Anna and the number isn’t as important as the message. It is an honor to be read. We saw my husband’s father and brother for three days. It was such a blessing. We fly out of WA state on Monday and we are ready to leave. When things settle when we get home I will send you an email. You stay safe and well. Love Joni 🦋❤️🙏
love and prayers for you, Retha and the children always. Thank you for your kind wishes as they mean a lot.

You’re welcome! 🙂 Hope you are well! Where did you go for the last two months? ((hugs))
I am thank you Susi. We were in WA State with my daughter and our three adopted grandchildren. We also went over the mountains and visited my husband’s father and brother. He lost his wife of 60 years to cancer 2 years ago. He looks great. It was nice to see him smiling. Susi I am so excited about your “Pushcart nomination” when will you hear something? I truly hope you get it. Blessing and love, Joni
Awesome, glad you had a good time! I’m pretty sure I didn’t win, have heard nothing. lol It’s an incredible honor to have been nominated though. 🙂
Yes it is and you deserve it too. Is there a deadline? Perhaps you will still hear but like you said it is a wonderful and prestigious nomination to receive. I am very happy for you. 🦋❤️🦋
