Ladies In Waiting

Waiting on Words

I Saw Sunday…Week 5

Come join us as we tell about some of the things we saw in the past week.

– A handsome older white-haired gentleman in jeans and dark jacket, carrying a bag of groceries, walk over to a bright red scooter, exchange the groceries for a black helmet which was in a bright red plastic carrier attached to the scooter, grin as he put on the helmet, climbed aboard the scooter and drove away.

– Sunlight through window blinds illuminating alpaca coverlet, bringing it to lustrous golden-brown life.

– My Mother’s words again, blended with my own, to form first draft of a poem in search of Mother Tongue.

– Long unfinished poem given new life by inspiration found in another poet’s words and thought process.

– Flat tire on front end of car, flattening desire for a slow leisurely drive through evening’s fading sunlight.

– Beautiful young acrobatic ballerina dancing on shoulders and head of her male partner.

– Words to a story started years ago, dancing in front of my eyes, making me laugh out loud, whispering, “Please, give me another chance?”

– Warm colors of a Quadramandala


  1. What a wonderful bunch of things here, a pleasure to read and as for that story whispering “Please, give me another chance?” I do hope you do, if it made you laugh aloud it sounds as if might desrve it :o)

  2. Deborah, thanks for reading and the story is getting a fresh new reading and maybe even a whack at completion.


  3. Beautiful and uplifting in every way. A GREAT Sunday read, thank you so much!

    • Thank you Sherry, I like tracking back over the week and remembering the bits and pieces that had some meaning for me,

    • Thank you so much Susannah. I’m home with two new stents in my heart, and a wonderful cold I caught at the hospital. They are such wonderful places, yes? Moving slow and drinking lots of juice. Will be here on Sunday with a lot to show and tell, lol.
