The World is a Place of Neverland

The ham smokes on the back of the pit
The hide will be used for clothing
The green mist comes in
The weather changing

Green rolling hills become
Warm colors
Yellow, orange, red
As found on the color wheel

Seasons go through their changes
Coyote howls at the Harvest Moon
He speaks in tongues
That have no meaning for us
So much we don’t understand

We stare into the darkness
Try to define the mysteries
Stories from long ago
Passed down through the years

The world is a place
Of “neverland”
Riding the tides
Of its own choosing

Wordle #365


Note:  I am thinking the world is “never” as we would like it to be.  No one ever asks us, “How would you like things to be.”  Wishes never granted.  What is unexpected seems to always happen.   This “Neverland” is full of surprises.

  1. I like the idea of Neverland being all around us, Annell. I especially love the lines:
    ‘Seasons go through their changes
    Coyote howls at the Harvest Moon
    He speaks in tongues’
    ‘We stare into the darkness
    Try to define the mysteries’

    and we find surprises!

  2. I love the colors of Neverland under a harvest moon – and the intermingle of fantasy and reality unfolding. This is so lovely to visualize – and the close is mesmeric in its truth.

  3. Love this especially; “We stare into the darkness try to define the mysteries”… we never know what we might find around the corner 💜

    1. Yes, the world is full of surprises!! Even when the world seems dark, keep your eyes open, and you will be amazed!! On the darkest day of my life, when all was true, the world came alive in a magical way. Thanks for your comment.😊 Annell Livingston


  4. The use of the pigskin, the engagement with the moment in smell and color and sound and contemplation and conjecture–a warm glow of beauty in this neverland! When not asked, we must still say. Thoreau felt that he could talk to the whole government through the tax collector. I always hesitate at this action, choosing instead my place at the hearth.
