“…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.
I republish this post, in consideration of the horrible actions and events of January 5th and retrospectively, in reconsideration of the sense of awe and respect I felt while standing beneath the dome. I couldn’t imagine that day, that one day there would be… Continue Reading “America … reconsidered”
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”
Today, I was reminded of our 2017 trip to Indianapolis to cheer on our Seton Hall Pirates as they challenged the Butler Bulldogs at Hinkle Fieldhouse. As we geared up for the big game, which our Pirates won in an exciting last second play,… Continue Reading “Auto-gravure”
Having just returned from a walk in my garden, I grabbed a vase, filled it with water and placed my harvest (two Lilies of the Valley) into the vase. Then I saw it! The beauty of the flower sprigs notwithstanding, before my eyes was… Continue Reading “Mirror Glass”
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.

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”
March 28, 2020 Today, my daughter got married. It was a rainy, otherwise depressing day, but today, my daughter got married. It wasn’t a typical catered affair, with florists, musicians, and photographers, as she’d planned so many months ago. The statewide shutdown made that… Continue Reading “Wedding Day”
