Disk

The sun a disk of light. The flowers of purple nectar. My mind reflects. I am here. Yet, I am also with the women marching today…

Today was the Women’s March

Many cities and even in Washington DC

They are marching …

I felt connected to it all-

Yet today we cleaned the gutters,

As husband was on the roof

With a long powerful hose,

I waited to clean

the dark

Mud leaves and earthy smelling mire-slush.

As I waited,

I investigated the pool

Clean and blue

I saw the sun

A round perfect sun.

Bright and surrounded

By clouds

as many cauliflowers

And I thought…

“How lovely and bright the sun is, will it hurt my eyes to stare so long?”

I kept looking into the pool

Watching the sun.

A reflection in a clean pool.

A crow flew between us,

The whole reflection and my single view of the sun.

Droplets from the power hose

Rippled in the pool water

I looked away…

A hummingbird stopped in front of me,

Long enough to see a red beating breast.

Then was gone.

I gazed at the sun

The grey clouds

The ripples in the clean pool.

I also thought upon the women’s march…

Earlier, I was in front of my home

I studied the falling rosemary

Exploding with fresh, delicate purple flowers.

The rain also brought the many marching honeybees.

The sun a disk of light. The flowers of purple nectar. My mind reflects. I am here. Yet, I am also with the women marching today…

Today was the Women’s March

Many cities and even in Washington DC

They marched…

Welcome to Hudley Flipside’s “The Seminary Of Praying Mantis Publishing.” Praying mantis shows me her story of life, death, and rebirth. For me she is an image or symbol of the divine in all things. I watch the praying mantis in my garden and have taken her image as my logo. She is an amazing little creature, and I relate to her connection to nature. We are both wild and part of this strange world. She is a part of my mythology as I am part of hers.
