Headstall's Reflections - 44. Chapter 44- I Would

More words.

Headstall’s Reflections

 

 

Chapter 44- I Would

 

I would, given opportunity and license

Set you on the highest mountaintop

Two feet of living moss for a mattress

And a cloud for your pillow

 

I would open for you, new vistas

Reveal to you a world

That takes you from your own

For a time

 

Would that I could

I would offer you an escape

As you follow words

Written on a wind that envelops you

 

I would gift to you gladly

That which resides in my awareness

My imagination, my soul, my heart

Yours for the taking

 

I would hope they draw you in

Those pages that expose me

And the people who exist in my mind

Clamoring to be heard

 

I would give this to you freely

Yours for the taking

If you sink into that mossy bed

And read my musings on a love-filled breeze

Thanks for visiting the mountaintop. I hope it was rewarding in some way.

How exquisitely beautiful. The wonder and magic of these words echo in my mind: two feet of living moss...I can only imagine how that must feel...reveal a world that takes you from your own....II am already transported...words written on a wind...a breeze that can chant of things I only now remember...

 

You have given to us so freely, so generously of yourself, your offerings on that magical and marvelous breeze. Thank you for that part of yourself you share, and for your imagination.

This from a man who gifts us with words that take us to worlds where love is redemption, where dreams come true ...

You had me at moss for a mattress and cloud for a pillow... Who wouldn't jump at the opportunity to get lost in your writings, Gary? To be enveloped by words written on the wind? Very moving. And very sweet. We are fortunate to receive it.

My good Sir, you most certainly do all of those things. Such imagery in just than poem and such freedom and travel to the world I want to live in when I allow myself you enter your worlds you open up for me. You may never know the peace and balm your writings are to my soul. And if I feel that way I doubt I am alone.
Thanks for creating a safe place to escape to my friend.

Thanks, Parker. This is very kind of you... we give a piece of ourselves when we write :hug:

Thanks, Mac. Could you imagine the sensation of laying on two feet of moss? :hug:

Thank you, my friend. Your words mean a lot to me. I hope you are well :hug:

You've conveyed beautifully, how a writer gives pieces of themselves in everything they write... how writers want to share what we see in our heads with those around us... those we care about. Beautifully written, my friend. (Sorry for the late review. I had written a review the day it posted and must have closed my browser before I actually added my review :rolleyes: )
