The Island Sunset

The reflection of the setting sun and dawning moon bounced off the water, and the island hid in the fog of the cool night along with the quarter of the setting sun that brought the eclipse of that night.

It was eerie and beautiful, at the same time, and it was a view that lovers would talk about to their children and grandchildren.

They would tell them how the sun melding with the moon on their first date set their destinies in stone while looking out upon the ocean that night, and they would feel the energy from that night for the rest of their lives.

Broken Serenity

The sun shines through the twiggy-trunked trees majestically.

Though the railings are bent and broken, they are still so beautiful as the light hits them the right way.

There’s a path where the brokenness of the roadside brings about new exploration.

I could sit there for hours and breathe in the sun’s love.

I could rest and relax here until the moon replaced the light in the sky.

I belong here sipping my coffee…letting the wind brush through my hair…

Serenity fills my body with life, and the clearness of the world beyond the rails brings me the first bit of peace of my day.

Welcome To My World

It stormed all day yesterday, but it made today so damned beautiful!  The sun is shining bright.  The birds are singing in the trees. It’s a good day to be alive!

I decided since it was such a beautiful day that I would take some pictures and share them.

Lone daisy sitting in the clay
Thank you so much
For brightening my day!

Skies marbles with the clouds
Above the tree tops
Breath-taking…you take away my sounds

Trees up high above my head
With light shining through its limbs
This would be a great view from my bed!

Little pictures from the place I love
The smile glistens upon my face
The sun showers me from above

Little plant growing mighty and strong
I can’t wait to see you blossom
The world of nature is where you belong

Spring Days

A bird chirping the song of the day
As there is a whistle through the tall grass
A cat meows up to the window with grace
And you can hear an airplane roar through the clouds
Soon the breeze of the wind brings the leaves to a clap
Inviting new birds to sing along with the first
As they begin singing the melodies of the day’s spring air

The color of green covering the waving limbs
Of the trees swaying a welcoming “Hello”
Bringing the critters to frolic in the leaf-covered land
Above the birds playing in the blue sky
No rain in sight today as the fluff moves briskly
Only the cool breeze moving through the sun’s rays
Shining through with beams of warmth
On our skin glowing like the day skies of Spring
