Sun set over Taos


After a hard day, the sun pulls the covers to his chin and snuggles in for a well deserved rest.

Your Return

I am alone

The words have receded

There is no sound

It is empty

Where have all the thoughts gone

Will they sneak back in

One by one

Careful not to draw

Attention to themselves

When alone and empty

Have the thoughts all

Fallen through the cracks

Hide and seek

Just waiting to pounce

To surprise

Or just to quietly reappear

Like naughty school children

Like the cat

Who waits for his prey


No movement

Not even a whisker

I will wait

For your return.

  1. oh this is very nice annell…esp. love the idea of the thoughts gone and then the question how they will sneak back in…careful not to draw attention to themselves…this is a gorgeous thought…

  2. smiles. having just spent a bit playing with two adorable kittens, i can see that part well…and if like kittens they will find a way to get into anything…perhaps they will not keep you waiting long…smiles.
