Heavy the Sun

Heavy, the sun rises up the waiting day

Leaves barely lifting in ponderous air


We watch like small prey, breathing.



About wrensong

I am a poet who collects stones. I am a wanderer of creek beds and forests, canyons and high desert who, coming home, sometimes finds words to tell the story. I am a companion with others in the search for Deep, Wild Soul. I shape containers in time and space for others to come together to write, to tell their stories, to hold each other in the telling. I am a grandmother and the companion of a cat named Alaya. I often travel out into open country with a man who calls himself Dunewalker who has hung his hammock in my heart.

    Thanks, Teri. I had forgotten to post that widget. It is now in place in my sidebar below the River of Stones badge.

    Ponderously a perfect word. Poor Mr Sun having to lift up the day.

    Wonderful! I think I may finally get updates to my email account- I checked the little box below the reply box that says – “notify me of new posts by email”. I do not see a subscribe link anywhere else on your blog…Is that by design? Anyway I will waddle ponderously away and hope I do not miss anymore of your posts due to forgetting to check in on you. xo teri
