The Winged Realm

Asher and Parisa ran to the sunshine spot. They had seen the butterflies appear and disappear from here before. They had wondered where the butterflies go.

They waited.

They knew the butterflies would be back because they had come to them in the dreamtime with soft butterfly kisses and said,

“Come to us at the sunshine spot. 

Come to the edge where light meets dark.

Fly with us to The Winged Realm.”

Soon they would know.

Haiku and Loku Days-The Spirit of East 10th Street

© Jo Hewitt THE TEAL MANGO, 2015

Small Town Girl Moves to City.  The headline should continue: And Changes the City. Well, at least my neighborhood. Tammi Hughes, as Executive Director of The East 10th Street Civic Association for 13 years, has given her time, energy, and really, her heart and soul in the growth and change along this section of East 10 Street and its neighborhoods, in and out of the office. On a personal level she has reached out to help people, anything from finding a place to live, mowing someone’s yard when that person couldn’t (me and mine), and comforted hearts when people have suffered at the hands of crime, poverty, and the other ugly children of ignorance and injustice.

It is hard to put on a super hero cape everyday and fight the good fight.  Tammi Hughes, yes you, I want to say thank you for all that you have done, for the community, with all the positive changes you have helped bring about, and for me, as my neighbor and friend, for being there.  (By the way, I took our super hero costumes to be dry cleaned so we can take a little break.)

Tammi Hughes, this one is for you.

Star drop music night,

 

Dream and deed meet, dance in light,

 

Soul Light East 10th Street.
