Walking in the World. {Poetry}

mother & son

 

By Andrew McNally

 

My Mother and me walked hand in hand

down a trodden path

that wound its way through a field of wild flowers

and tall grass.

We walked to a patch of ground were we

laid our blanket wide to look up at the clouds as they passed by. We

smiled at the clouds and

replied in turn.

Father Sun shown down as

the dragonflies hovered and the butterflies suckled

on clover with the bees.

My Mother and me sang a song

only we could hear.

Whose melody was played on heart strings

that resonated from Her heart to mine.

The smile never faded from 

Her mouth and eyes.

The wind blew and swayed

the field like waves

on a green ocean.

Birds chirped and time

passed by.

The Tattooed Buddha

The Tattooed Buddha was founded by Buddhist author Ty Phillips and Dana Gornall. What started out as a showcase for Ty's writing, quickly turned into collaboration with creative writer, Dana Gornall and the home for sharing the voices of friends and colleagues in the writing community. The Tattooed Buddha strives to be a noncompetitive, open space for the author’s authentic voice. So while not necessarily Buddhist, we are offering a dialogue that is aware and awake to the reality of our present day to day, tackling issues of community, environment, and compassionate living.
