Foxtails... beautiful waving grasses of the plains

These are soooo beautiful!

Today I found that everything is happening for a reason. Everything. It was exciting! I was at my studio when I learned this, working on a sculpture. A couple of times I started to leave, but I felt so heavy, then I went back and worked some more, and the energy and healing and revelations came as I created. As I was leaving, I dropped the massage ball I had bought, and it lit up ( I didn't know it could light up!) and rolled under the door back into my studio and beside some branches, shining red and green and yellow on them, and gave me more ideas for my sculptures.

Then, when I went out to the alley, there were some beautiful foxtails, the grasses of wonder of my youth. I went and petted them for awhile, and held them and smelled them. Then wrote a poem about them. The beautiful grasses that touch our hearts.

The poem is a love song.

warm days

c. July 9, 2010, Rachel E MacDonald

foxtails, foxtails

soft as a rabbit

growing in the alley

in the evening sun

your green fur is turning

tinges of pale

and soft and soft

oh you are soft

bending to meet me

my eager hands caress you

like a kitten

a green branch

a loved one's hair

foxtails, foxtails

your smell is like the morning

you tickle like a wolfskin

but you smell like fresh corn

good evening, good evening

I see you wave in tandem

the beautifullest grasses

underneath our prairie sun.

With love and gratitude for God's beautiful world.
