Ancient Tipi

Seasoned wood in canvas tent,

Thoughts that rise to smoky vent;

Ancient tipi’s ancient ways

Reflecting light of ancient days.

    Lovely, redolent, evocative–I’m imagining poems being written inside. I might not come out…

      We all need a cocoon – er, tent, once in a while – as long as we eventually crawl out and don’t live there, it’s okay to go for a visit! 🙂

        I don’t know–I rearranged the living room today (last week was the bedroom), and realized it is no longer set up to welcome guests. Just a cocoon for me to hunker down for fall/winter, and write like a madwoman. I’m calling it “acceptance”–has a more positive ring than isolation; and who knows, maybe I’ll get that novel finished yet (or the epic poem version of it).

        An epic poem of your cocooning process would make a GREAT Hollywood blockbuster!

        Oh NO, not another creative project! I’ll jot a note…!

  2. This, and you being so close to nature allures me to think that you might have been an amerindian in a previous life 🙂
