The Butterfly Effect . . .







As a wee seed of PluM TRee BooKS , I was asked to join in a blog tour for The BuTTerFLy EffecT , along with a cocoon full of poets, artists, photographers, storytellers, fortune tellers & roustabouts …. promoting those small ripples we create that can change the world . .  
I am perpetually honored, humbled & stunned by the craft & heart of this group … follow, dip, dive & FLY in … the time has come !!!




IN Summer's Solstice we pause & breathe . . .
recalling the thunder toil of Spring's release 
ordinary becomes the divine 
 we suck the marrow in every step 
and
reach for something fine , , ,

Nectar sweet lies under skin taunt & ripe 
indigo plum with a sparrow's bite 
hanging 
waiting 
in ego's surrender 
don't look down - only imagine the tender 

We 
touch . . 
we hold, we ponder 
plums & gamma rays
a hand, a heart
… a story 
and
the the cost to stay 

In Summer's Solstice 
we pause & breathe . . . 
awaiting thunder 
tucked under verdant leaves 
here
lies 
change, hope 
and 
possibility
taste the wonder of the plum 
and 
all of love's fragility . .
