For Lynne




Undeterred by clouds or other routines, 
she checks each day 
for a message

testing the tension 
on a thin wire of patience
strung across wide
wide skies.

~

 I love you for this.

hmm makes me wonder just what message she is waiting on...but arent we all in some ways...its good if you can keep patience in that...not easy to do...

good to see you today...smiles.

A thin wire of patience. This really resonates with me. I picture it stronger than steel, silk. Invincible.

Your images flutter to mind many times long after I've read the poem. That gossamer wire is one.
