He longs to see herlooking up at Him,
to see that look of peace
where chaos has no hold,
because, she knows,
she’s in her rightful place,
safe and secure,
kneeling before Him.
Even though I haven’t posted pictures on this blog very much and I don’t usually partake in “awards”, etc., this looked like something fun to do. So, I figured…why not?
I was nominated by Caribou Crossings.
The pictures are to contain no people and no explanations. Also, I’m supposed to nominate some new each day. However, I am going to leave that open for anyone that wants to take part in it.

In the dark of night
Under a blanket of stars
What do you dream of?

It has been a long while since I wrote one of these, and I’m trying to get back into the swing of things. So, I thought I would try it out again. I’m curious to see any are willing to partake with a response. For this one, I chose to use the 5-7-5 syllable pattern.
A Mondo is essentially a question/answer poetry between two people. Typically it follows a Zen like pattern, where the “student” is taking the understanding from nature. In this case, I strayed from the norm (somewhat).
The Mondo is:
- written by 2 separate poets, one asking, one answering.
- 2 stanzas of 3 lines each, 19 syllables or less, often 5-7-7, sometime 5-7- 5 is used for each stanza. The first stanza is the question, the 2nd is the response.
- written in the spirit of Zen, responsive through meditation and observation of natural surroundings.
