This is one of my favorite videos!
Do you delight in words as much as I do?
What words come to you today as you make a list of words you love? Or even just words that intrigue you in this moment?
My journaling exploration leads to a couple of poems, one that ends with my sliding down a rock and stopping just before an opalescent oil slick.
In the second, I also climb, this time along a jetty.
I search the clear waters
Filled with blooming seaweeds–
Flat, round, brownredgreenyellow
Looking for the octopus
I spotted last winter
…a gift to see her that once.
