I would call you . . .




If I discovered
a magic carpet
of ruby leaves,
waiting
in the middle
of nowhere,
I would call you
to come
and make
a hide-away 
in it
with me.


And there
we'd breathe
until
soft white drops
caressed 
our skin
telling us
it was time,
to
pack up
 ruby-red memories
and go.

  2. And there we'd play the most magical ruby red games of our imagination, and when we felt the whtie drops, the ruby red drops wouldn't leave us as we went away. Yes, I see it, I feel it. Just so beautiful. Thank you, Bonnie. xxox

    You know, I have never seen an entire carpet of red leaves before. They make for an amazingly exotic photo.

  11. Let us be reminded by your words that magic carpets, our place to pause, our place to soar are ever preset for the taking. The flutter and peace of your "ruby leaves" are here embraced in joy.

  14. Bravo -- the perfect marriage of words and images. The red reminds me of the hibiscus flower tea we sipped on our dahabeya in Egypt.

  26. Quite lovely, Bonnie. This reminds me of a request made of me by a dying friend to go out to the garden and roll in the leaves for him.
