Texas I Remember

Texas Winter donned a chill
windy days and rainy nights –
funny how I’d forgotten that

I remember coastal waters
the sheer joy of cranes in flight
or Roseated spoonbills feasting

The warm thrill of tortilla soup
and the satisfaction of enchiladas
spices still lingering in my mind

A scrap of Texas memorialized
an endearing image blotting out
the internal, newsworthy, storms.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Ahhh – reading this on a chilly Texas evening – got overly chilled bringing groceries in from car a couple of hours ago – still wearing my down vest and have added a warm furry feline to my lap. Enchiladas would be fantastic! (But not going back out till tomorrow’s sunshine convinces my body it isn’t really THAT cold …)

    1. It’s still warmer than our climate. Maybe that’s why it didn’t bother me much, lol. Getting together with you was definitely a highlight of both trips.
