Just Listen

to what you see.

  Fix your eyes

on what you 

hear.

  Do you taste 

the backward syncopation 

of 

  your life's choreography?

Does the primeval perfume of the sea

wash over you

does the acrid taste 

of 

of a single rose petal dropping to earth

move you?

Feel the stars on your fingertips


anita pelayo rivera les dames d'abord


and 

shine light years

on

someone's life.


  Dedicated to my mother

Grace

long gone

but who loves me still

beyond 

the light years of time.

Your words moved me to tears, sweet friend. They make me think of my mother Renee (Irene) also long gone.

Stunning elegant words to relish and taste!

I am simply mad for that shot of the worn out pointe shoes - I've saved it to my computer and am using it for my new screensaver. I'm going to love seeing it every morning when I turn on my computer - and I'll think of all the beauty you've brought into my life over the years!

I listened to it, friend Anita … thanks to your comment … Wonderful music … must get out my old records and play me some Tschaikowsky, Dvorak, maybe some Peer Gynt … maybe even some Wagner …

Much love, cat.

Oh Anita, thank you for this post. Such beauty. I have read of those horses and would love to visit the area. I reared my own white horse, Gracie, and found a forever home for her before my move to the city. Thank you again.

I needed the beauty of this in my life this morning. Yours are the posts that make my heart soar.

A beautiful post . . . but all that I could think of when seeing those worn ballet slippers was . . . all those sore and bloody toes.
Sorry how my mind works.
Connie :)

Anita, this post hit home for me, as I'm thinking of my mother lately, and even mentioned her in my next post. I absolutely love that picture of the woman, it's magical. Your mother's name was Grace? What a beautiful name. And she passed along grace to her very special daughter. I wonder, is it this time of year that we miss our moms, Anita? This post was heartwarming, and it sounds like you are missing your mom as well. The ballet slippers look tired and worn, but still so beautiful and ready to dance again. : )

love, ~Sheri

Chère Anita,

Quel beau message encore ...
Comme tu le dis si bien: l'amour est éternel.
Je te souhaite des merveilleuses journées d'automne ...

Je me sauve
dans tes rêves magiques,
dame du lac lointain
dans les forêts murmurantes
les brins d'herbe courbés
le coeur battant des lauriers-roses

Car
il n'y a rien de plus beau...

Anita, this brings me to tears. Our moms are so incredibly special to us. Your mom is in your heart, and your soul and walks along with your on your journey. I am sure that she is so very proud of your and your art. Thank you sharing my friend. xoxo

Ann said...

That is just so lovely Anita.
I love the delicate way you
illustrate the hurt that we sometimes
feel and experience, your posts always gives
hope and encouragement.

It reminded me of my mother who has passed away
years ago but a hole in my heart is still vacant
because she has gone away too soon and nobody can ever
replace her place in my heart.
It was her birthday this week.
