Magpie #26 His Water

There's a ledge I sit upon
Ambition shattered,
Job is gone
Perched to fall
Here I dangle.

To chance
to write
to dream
Am I able?

Perhaps with time
And space
And prayers
His living water
Will lead me there.


This is a magpie tale.



P.S Dear Bloggie Friends,
We're leaving Friday morning for a special treat. The Engineer's parents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, and are taking all their kids and grands on an Alaskan cruise! Yeah, I know. Rough life :-) I won't be posting from the ship (internet fees are outrageous), but will be home and posting again on 8/15. Hope to see you then!

How wonderful to celebrate a 50th anniversary on an Alaskan cruise, gratis. I've done three and I loved every one ( of course, I've done 88 cruises, all over the world - but, alas, they've come to an end as all travel has with the loss, 17 months ago, of my job of 21 years in massive budget cuts to the San Fran Dept of Public Health ).

Enjoyed your magpie.

At 65, I've done it! My poetry book - Life's Journey by Carmen Henesy - is out on Amazon!
( Poems about the things that have been important to me in my journey through life, some humorous, some sad, some that may have meaning to you as well )

That sounds like the absolute perfect way to end the summer. You sent me a link request and I tried to answer it, but my answer was bounced back to me. I'd love to exchange links, but I'm not very techno savy so you'll have to tell me how to do it!

At least I think the email was from you. I'm having some spam issues...
