An Insecure Security

Gemutlichkeit* of

a rainy October morning

dry chilly warmth

in our little barn



you perusing the paper


me pumping poetry


rain tip-toeing

on the metal roof

a tymphanic symphony

outside the window

a masterpiece of color

yellow walnut leaves

and red sugar maple

the steady drip-drop of water


what bliss is this

precious moments of Now

a heavenly haven

from a frightening, tipsy-turvy world


I wish to always be

in your aura of calm

and the beauteous bounty of Nature


for sure

death will come


 please take us together


find us in each other’s arms


blessed bliss

pure peace


true security

the everlasting Now

only exist

in the presence of God.

*German word meaning “coziness”.

    • Thank you, Stina. A little grim but realistic. I have been thinking about what I said to you last– saying to try to think of one good thing a day. This is not so easy when you are in the midst of things. I forget, too. My husband tells me to do one thing a day that will bring you joy of some sort. I think that is better. And meditation. I can’t get my husband to do it. Although the way he listens to music is a form of meditation. It is really good for the body AND mind.

      • I always appreciate your words of wisdom Ellen! I think it is a wonderful thing to do, making an effort to either find joy in or create joy in each day. Thank you for all that you do for me my dear friend!

  4. a melancholic but moody and very beautiful poem of love and of autumn. It’s so allegorical, I really heard the rain drop as it does right now here and I’m not able to do such beautiful poems. Warmest regards Mitza

    • Thanks so much, Mitza. You are very kind. You do beautiful photographs, jewelry and paintings– much I cannot do. Blessings for your good spirit, Ellen
