Sunshine Days and Foggy Nights
Day 3 Nature Series and one of the most magical poems ever written. This morning started off foggy here in Helsinki and the air seemed to swirl with magic. I wish you joy. I wish you will see so much magic crammed into a single moment. Hugs from the contemplative Housewife and wood explorer. x
I was born to catch dragons in their densAnd pick flowersTo tell tales and laugh away the morningTo drift and dream like a lazy streamAnd walk barefoot across sunshine days.I was born to find goblins in their cavesAnd chase moonlightTo see shadows and seek hidden riversTo hear the rain fall on dry leavesAnd chat a bit with death across foggy nights.I was born to rub my hands in dirtAnd walk green hillsTo plant corn and make breadTo build a house strong against the windAnd to live free across sunshine days.I was born to watch owls in dark forestsAnd hear coyotes cryTo feel trees tremble and the grass sleepTo taste cold air and smell the damp earthAnd watch ghostly shapes disappear across foggy nights.I was born to love a man wrapped in sunshineAnd dressed in fogTo make a pact on a high hillRatified centuries ago by the sunTo walk together through sunshine days and foggy nights.
A visionary and a revolutionary; an authentic man who knew the worth of the world and himself, but was unconcerned with putting values on them.
Sometimes the gentlest of men (and women) are the greatest visionaries and revolutionists. I do so deeply admire James Kavanaugh. Thank you for such a beautiful tribute to him Hariod.
What a beautiful poem. If you don’t mind I shall use it soon on my blog. 🙂
Sure thing! Isn’t it such a magnificent poem? It would be so good to share James Kavanaugh’s work with many more. Happy Spring to you x
That is a beautiful poem indeed. Thanks for introducing him to me Sharon! And wonderful photos to compliment the mood. Keep on shining!
A beautiful post Sharon, thank you! ❤
This so resonates with my timeless soul. And the pictures are lovely. ❤

My kind of poem Sharon. I am sitting on the edge of a mountain in Arizona where the Hopi Kachina gods roam. Makes me want to go in search of one. –Curt
You go for it Curt! You made me most glad. Sharon
You have such a gift to see and capture beauty in even the tiniest of life, which can only be… because you have so much love and beauty inside of you! Stunning pictures Sharon and a very magical poem 🙂
I cherish your sweet kindness Caren. I truly do. Sharon x
What a magnificent poem! I don’t know James Kavanaugh, but now I’m going to find out about him! Love the images – so abstract yet palpable.

So good to read your thoughts and musings Sharon. Missed you.

Your words always touch me. I take my time to read each post slowly to savour each sentence. Sweet spring days ahead for you Sharon. Love and warmth from Malaysia, Gina
That poem is so beautiful! And so are your photos. Love that green color
Thanks so much for the beautiful poem you shared. I have a little woods I look at from my window where I write now. I love going into woods and exploring too, though I don’t do it as often as I should, just simply walk through them. But I also love the moss and little nooks and crannies where faires could be hiding! Love the poem!!! Again thanks!
Hugs dear Jodie! It’s been so good writing with you these last week. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I have loved hearing from you! To woods, fairies and seeing magic every day! Hugs. Sharon
Beautiful photos, Sharon, and poem by James Kavanaugh! Thank you for bringing this gifted poet and human being to my attention.
So very lovely to hear from you Lavinia! I’m so glad you enjoyed this poem. It’s been my joy for many years. Love to all on your beautiful farm, Sharon x
