It’d been a while since last I wandered deep among the thistle wilds of Brightwood Park, Sadly taking note of Winter’s toll (strewn trees lay heavy-felled upon the floor), But knowing all was well, for snags are homes to birds and beasts who nest… Continue Reading “Proof of Life”
T’was nights before Christmas…(which scarf shall I wear)? Snow scenes sprinkled broadly or red-green silk threads Perplexed, which to choose, perhaps I’d defer to simple Noel pin with garnets, instead. My choices strewn carelessly on my made bed, I turned for a moment to… Continue Reading “An Unexpected Gift”
Focus and finesse, On guard, yet calmly resting, perched precarious at blue water’s edge, yet peaceful, watching, waiting on lagoon-side ledge, for signs of prey. Today, fulfilling nature’s way, the fiery sun and golden breach of day call to her to stay, to play,… Continue Reading “Balance of Nature”
Come, take my hand and walk with me, hushed within the winding paths and vines, spell-binding. Come take my hand. Come walk with me; escape to days when ways were gentler, softer, loftier than they seem today. Come, walk with me. Come reminisce, step… Continue Reading “Across the Bridge”
“…Remarkably, it’s oft the shadows that I first do see…” a few words and thoughts inspired by Photo Friday #shadows.
Hibernation…Hope…a solitary bloom…
Together here, we (surely) can survive and thrive and strive to bloom anew.
White, well mostly, bright, as night recedes to dawn’s entreaties, Resting, softly lain upon the tide-moist shore. Grains of sudsy sand, rushing, gushing in with shifting tides, flinging, clinging grains between my toes. Leaning closer still, beneath the feather, delicate and clean, I spy… Continue Reading “Fallen Feather”
Yesterday, sun-risen summer shoreswere dressed to kill, but nowlie gray and chilledby high surf’s crashing, glancing blows.. I spy from window’s sill. Rewardslie there, to be ensnaredat water’s edge, if not delayed,waylaid or swayed by bed sheets’ soft entreat: Forego the beach – surcease! Today, Instead I rise… Continue Reading “Outside my Window”
The unwrit page lies blank, unmarred by words expressing nothing, or maybe something daft, irrelevant. A stoppered voice, in this confined space, unheard, and in its place, the blank and empty face of silence. A toe dipped cautiously into the placid lake of deeper-than-appearing… Continue Reading “Resurgence”
From here, we thought we knew where blue sky met the ever stolid earth terrain below, Sun rays break through wisps one can’t forget, Each day unique, and ne’er a hint of snow. From here, each new horizon seemed to show If troubles or… Continue Reading “Shifting Horizons”
It’s all a blur, a caravan of days and endless nights of faceless frights, When did it begin; when will we phase Into a healing call: emerge to light? Acceptance comes, though focus isn’t right, We turn to note the beauty ‘fore our eyes,… Continue Reading “Focus”
This day, this oft-ignored escape, this place The nascent dawn breathes calm and dewy chill, I’m beckoned, enter in this backyard space, By fluttering finches: “Come, enjoin the trill!” Sudden scramble – feeders newly filled, Squirrels resume their tussling, chipmunks fussing Scurry scuffling soon… Continue Reading “Meditation”
