Still Life (Sort Of)

The stillness of a peach
is ripe with juicy promise

a whisper not held
within a child’s toy

and yet a child finds
a fragrance of her own

and what among us
is not still life, until
mind and emotion
meets us, compels

(For Nancy Merrill’s A Photo A Week Challenge: Still Life)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
