[some] Alluring thoughts

Susan MillerTetteringtonThe New Mexico Fan PageNovSunsetTaos

  • Rose colored mountains on a summer evening
  • A certain young man who flows like a long cool drink of water
  • The changing colors of adobe walls at dusk
  • A rising sun over shinning waters
  • Sea foam and seashells on glistening sand
  • Hot coffee, a warm blanket, a rocking chair, a porch with a view
  • A seagull’s song on a deserted beach
  • Wild horses in the sun
  • The sound spurs make on a slow walk
  • Friends who care and remember, who hold out their arms to catch your heart each time
  • The crow who calls out in the early morning and reminds us what can be done in the quiet of the early day
  • Worn leather
  • Fluffy tailed bunnies
  • The feel of a hot tub on a snowy night under the stars, in the mountains
  • A new book, a cozy chair, a rainy day
  • The smell of green chile roasting
  • The yip of Coyote in the dark, instinct awakened
  • The smell of cut grass, the feel under your bare feet
  • Facing the wind …
  • A Taos Sunset
  • Sunlight streaming in the doorway on a late summer afternoon
  • Puppy hugs
  • Icy cold lemonade in frosty glasses on a scorching day
  • Baby toes and baby nose
  • Free range animals
  • Herbs drying from ceiling rafters, dust angels floating in the stream of sun filtering through old wavy glass panes
  • Red checked blankets, straw baskets filled with fresh food, laughing children and sweet afternoon naps under the sun
  • The smell of rain in the desert
  • Fresh vegetables blooming in a beautiful container garden
  • The squeak of a wood floor at 2AM
  • Hay rolling off the back of old ranch trucks, cattle lining up like school children
  • Fine bone china, elegant silverware, linen tablecloths, crystal glasses, dim light, soft laughter, demure smiles, shared glances
  • Fresh Lavender scented sheets
  • The view from high on Hermits Peak
  • The scent of pluff mud
  • The smell of cedar trees on a cold sunny morning deep in the forest
  • Purring kitties
  • The smell of piƱon wood burning in the wood stove
  • The sound of children splashing in the pool
  • Apple picking on a cool morning
  • Cottonwood fluff falling from the trees
  • Pimento cheese sandwiches at the beach
  • Spirit ceremonies
  • Heat rising from loam on a hot afternoon
  • Full moon halo shining on the canyon
  • Margarita’s on the porch, friends sharing good times
  • Hot air balloons floating
  • Dusty roads
  • The singular sound of a gas powered saw on the mountain
  • Sandy feet on weatherworn floors, the sound of crashing waves in the salty air
  • The feel of a horses muzzle
  • The smell of burning sage
  • A wooden pier over the marsh
  • Ambrosia salad
  • Sheets drying in the sun
  • A colorful herb garden
  • Houses lit up in the dark night
  • The movement of the boat in calm water
  • Land as far as the eye can see
  • Sheep herding in Navajo land
  • Happy dreams, sweet sleep
