Fauna

I look to either side of me
and see walls of earth
I’m surrounded
nestled
and I’m very happy

here crawl the critters
too shy to roam alone
on every platform, every ridge
of stark overhanging rock
lies a home
and if they could walk the world
you know they would
to explore the beauty of every peak

defenseless and white
it’s only fitting they rest
upon this healed landscape
adding tiny flecks of grace
to this beautifully scarred face

Piña blüada

If you eat blueberries with pineapple, it tastes like piña colada.  Somehow the blueberries end up adding the coconut flavour?!

   

On second thought, maybe I’m just weird…..

     

No no — it really does taste piña colada-y!

   

Hmm, maybe I should turn my internal dialogue filter back on…..
