If I had my druthers

The Octpowrimo prompt for day 15 is to imagine “if today was the day where you could do anything you wanted. All foods had no calories. You could speed without getting pulled over. You could climb onto a plane and fly without having a ticket. What would you do?” What is your wildest dream for you one day? ”  My imagination is on strike.

maize harvest 15.10.15

A dispensation from pain and weakness
would enable me to walk the walk
across the stubble to our newly revealed distant view
The get up and go could just be to feel alive.

    Oh, Viv. This makes me appreciate so much. Such a simple want here. Thank you for this. And prayers to you, for mobility and joy.

    I wish you Shelley’s ‘morning-wingèd feet’, to dance lightly over the bare fields and bask in the sun on your face….

    The leaves in the forest are taking on lots colour now. We just took a lovely drive, and enjoyed the changes happening. Perhaps a drive in the countryside would cheer you?
