Put Your Feet Up

Have you ever been to Colorado?

My mom has some great stories about graduating high school, hopping a bus with her friend, and getting off in Loveland, Colorado.

Big Thompson and Estes Park rank really high in her favorite places. When I saw this post by the amazingly talented Sandy, I wanted to share it. Her words totally sum up what Colorado means to mom, and what Missouri with its clear creeks mean to me.

Thank you, Sandy, for allowing me share your lovely words.

Out of My Write Mind

Relax
And
Watch
The river
Flow

You’ve
Got
No better
Place
To go

The water’s
Singing
Can you
Hear it

Sit back
And
Let
Your spirit
Feel it

Melodious
Chirping
Fills
The air

Erasing
Each
And
Every
Care

A gentle
Breeze
Stirs
Leaves
And
Grasses

Relax
A bit
While
Time
Passes

      She’s soooo talented! (and nice.) I agree with you, Colorado is beautiful. My husband and I lived there a couple years and we loved it. Thanks for reading and for your kind comments. 😊

    I feel so much more relaxed just from reading it through a couple of times! Her words are art in themselves, I can picture the scene without additional pictorial imagary. Lovely.

        Oh yes! We have several inches on the ground as of Sunday. More is in the forecast. I think winter has arrived for the long haul now!
