How beautiful, a picture painted!
Sitting on the patio
astonished at the sky
living in the moment
watching the clouds go by
the sky and water meet
it is early morning
the sun is there to greet
Water appears to sizzle
with the gentle waves
birds are diving
they are brave
A cloud gives
a mist of rain
amazing clean scent
nature has gained
An astonishing display of colors
sun sets in the twilight
the moon shines bright
on this magnificent night
there is beauty around
living in the moment
enjoying each sight and sound

Welling up from nowhere, fluid freshness Snaking its way through the grass Squelching underfoot and seeping Through the stitching of my boots. Clear, sweet liquid; fountain of life Forming rivulets between the tussocks And carrying tiny particles as it flows Always downward; mind of its own. Whispering, chattering, bubbling With life, love, laughter Skipping over pebbles […]
Given the schizophrenic weather we’ve been experiencing in recent months, I thought this poem appropriate for the occasion, and seeing as how it’s about the seasons, I reckoned I’d throw in a few pics from hikes I took in 2 different seasons. Enjoy, and please do let me know what you think. Changing Seasons Snowflakes […]
Truer words, Sarah.
“Here’s the thing:
Nothing about this is okay.
You are not okay.”
Here’s the thing you don’t seem to understand. You aren’t funny. Intolerance, bigotry, and misogyny is no laughing matter. It is not okay to turn someone’s fears into a joke. It is not okay to mock someone. It is not okay taunt a victim. To make excuses for what happened to them. To make light of what they needed to do to survive.
Have you not noticed the trail of burned bridges you’ve left behind you? Have you not noticed the people you have offended? How about the fact that they are women, or men that appreciate women for who they are? Their strength. Their resilience.
No. It is not okay. You are not okay. Get some fucking perspective and some humility while you’re at it.

is a time of awakening
not only, does the earth come to life
but its creatures return to beautify the scene.
The wind whispers with intent –
as pollen fills the swollen blue skies of longing
and the sun’s rays shine down upon the growing buds
the branches dangling heavily, pregnant with promise.
I raise the camera to my eye
as spring has likewise awakened within me –
the renewal of hope.

Sorry I’ve been away for a bit… My computer died and I was stuck on the kid’s computers which has Net Nanny blocking practically everything 🙂 I’m finally back!
At last you are shedding the neutral grey and white, wrapping yourself in a green gown, sparkling with iridescent dew tumbling like velvet into a glassy pool still ice cold, quivering on the brink. Hear the promise: morning chorus, finches singing their hopeful hearts to spring. #haibun (I hope!) for #NaPoWriMo Day 12 I’ve never tried […]
Forgive me for falling behind on the A to Z challenge. I shall endeavor to catch up. My friend had gone to a ranch with her family. No doubt, the purpose was to pick apples and pretend to be a farmer rather than a city dweller for a few hours. I’m not sure if farmers […]
