...and they lived happily ever after. Smith & Lady: poets, artists, photographers & adventurers.
Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )
 
   
 
 

I’M AS READY

I’M AS READY

As a rabbit,
shuddering

As a sparrow,
huddling

I’m as ready

As a deer,
munching

I’m as ready

As a child,
pointing at sparrows
on a telephone line

I’m as ready
and innocent
for everything

Wrapped
in the comforter of air

Standing
On solid ground

Hearing dog plane buzz,
car door slam

Trusted parents

Child, I
Friend, I

Animal, I
I trust you

Bounty for frog
Sunning in a pond

I’m trusting you

You’re taking care
of so many things

~ Lady
