DREAMING IN GREEN


Summer is reminding me again of the value of pace and moving slowly through this luscious, gorgeous world... rain or shine, plenty or drought, no matter the season yet aware of each and every moment. Grace dances in this circle with Synchronicity and Serendipity ~ Sisters Three. They dance in this three-part entry... as the separate titles become their own poem.  





dreaming in green
in their native tongue
through smoke and shadow
comes indigo and gold




















It was a revelation to walk in the Elena Gallegos Open Space this morning after yesterday's delicious pouring rain... to see how quickly green was returning to the bunches of blue grama grasses ~ dormant until yesterday!  Everything is singing in green... a crow, even the shy blue scrub jay hiding in a juniper, and the sweet little black-throated gray warbler flitting around these high desert pines.  And me?  Today was the day I fell in love with the one-seeded juniper trees as they whispered secrets about Georgia O'Keeffe. 




IN THEIR NATIVE TONGUE

THROUGH SMOKE AND SHADOW ~ INDIGO AND GOLD
























Views looking west toward Corrales, New Mexico and the Romero Fire in the Rio Grande Bosque, June 22, 2012, from the roadside near Sandia Casino, as well as views from and in the Elena Gallegos Open Space closer to the mountains...  Smoke plumes and Apache Plumes, drought dormant Blue Grama Grasses in gold.
