Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “shade.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!


Under your great and powerful arms
I contemplate the meaning of life
Lie and absorb Mother’s peace
Through the blades of grass
Give to her in return
All that does not serve me
To transmute the greys and the dark
In your dappled shade I see sky
Through cool green leaves
Vibrant blue of calm
A sea of dreaming possibilities
Built from the white cotton puffs
That gently float by
Carrying me to magical places
Planning and plotting a course
Where all that is imaginable
Is a conceivable reality
That I now ground myself in
Bubbling forth with excitement
Of all that can be
