My Mother Speaks to Me!!

My mother owned an art gallery at one time, and selected some paintings that spoke to her.  They are here with me, artfully arranged by my brother. 

I look over at one now, and what I see from here brings tears.  I see it differently than before.  I see a woman,  lying on her back in the sea.  What I thought was a wave is her finger, holding a cloud of yellow,  amidst a deep calm of violet and gray. 

That yellow cloud, looks like a bird to me now, a Meadowlark, a bird that sings, "so happy to see you."  

The woman's head rests on a pillow of yellow in the sea.  Rocks, washed by waves, support.  Two gulls pull the cords, opening and closing the blinds,  of air.  

I feel, when I am in this space where my mother died, that she speaks to me in all sorts of ways.   She wants me to know she is well, and I do.

And, when I am outside - well, then, Mother Nature holds me in her hands likes a small bird.  She holds my chirps to her lips, like God.  I am a prayer, a whisper, a shout, as are you.   

A beautiful Sunday to All!!   And may the heat of California abate.  I read that it is the warming sea that is keeping our fog from cooling the land.  I feel concern for the plants and the trees, and the lungs that are yours.   I send the wish for cooling breezes your way.    May the fog find a way to pull itself from the warm sea, and return.
