one of my birthday lamps
It's a little cooler tonight - finally, but it has been a long, long, hot week. Going to take it easy on myself this evening and just post a couple of poems.
I splurged for my birthday and bought myself two Tibetan Salt lamps ($23/each at Amazon.com). A friend of mine got some about a year ago and I've been pining for one and then Quilly (who is yet again giving cool things away) wrote about them on her blog and I got to pining even more... It took me almost two months (not counting the year of pining) to give myself permission to spend the money, but I'm glad I did. I think they are beautiful. Besides creating an air of calm, they are supposed to assist with allergies and sinus issues, so I'm hoping they will keep Tara Grace away from the vet and me spared a good deal of projectile snot. Lord, it's a good thing she's so sweet.
One other thing before I actually do what I said and just post two poems... I think I saw a bee. I'm not sure. But I think so. That was a birthday gift from the Universe.
Anyway... a poem....
WAITING FOR THE UNICORNAlways in my mindRides the dreamSilver light and darknessDiana in the moonlightStalking shadowsBow and arrow poisedWaiting for ApolloTo drop burning from the skyRevealing unseen beastsAnd beautiesWaitingEternally waitingFor the arrow to flyAnd waiting tooFor the unicorn.- Katherine E. Rabenau
THE DREAMSome distant dreamNags at my mindCalls angrilyMove onAwake and runBegone to some far mystic landWhere poets run on moonlight sandAnd waking dreamersSing their songs aloudRun wildLet go of tepid thingsAnd face the wind.- Katherine E. Rabenau
Some things I'm grateful for today:
- Tibetan salt lamps
- Harry Potter
- Craig Ferguson (reading his biography)
- cooling air and pink clouds
Have a Wonderful Day!
