Mood: Just dancing through life

Just thinking!


A Burning Land


Burning heat and wind
Silently etch the land
Drawing wrinkles, sketching skin

Man enters here
At his own peril
Sweat turns to dust

Boulders flung violently
Upon the burning sand
Shelter for the snakes and lizards

Hurtful in the middle
Soothing at the edge
Seashore a sparkling smile

Roads going nowhere
To the left right
Straight ahead

Dust, wind and sun
Cactus and Boojums
Soaring

The destiny of Baja
It’s smiling people
And Rain

Good thing you put a 2003 date on that, or I might have thunk that "Drawing wrinkles, sketching skin" could have been a reference to me!:lol: :o:oOh wait! Was meeting me what made you remember it & post it?:o:o

No, my Lady


I am working on putting together a book of my poems for my family and friends and this one was about Baja so I posted it.

I noticed only a few 'sunshine' lines and they are becoming and show that you don't hide from having fun........Ooookay?

You could have said it was good or bad or sumpin'.

Don't wrinkles only go where smiles have been? That's what I've been told and that's what I'm sticking to when it comes to my own reflection.

It's good Bernie. Your poem reminded me of a part of Baja that is slowing becoming hard to find.

All of life is a smile and the sun catches it and etches it in our faces so that those who come after us realize the fun that we have had.

You are correct--I am smitten.........

With life and living it

With flirting and enjoying it

With learning and sharing new experiences with people who seem to look at life from a similar angle.

Yep! Guilty and totally smitten........with sharing, caring, and having as much fun as I can pack into my travel bags.

And not afraid to show it!

Thanks for noticing.

Thank you for your kind words....I do believe that you and Steve and I are looking at this little world from a very similar angle.

Thank you for sharing with me the difference between Anna and ANA. That was a most interesting discovery for me.
