Blushing Rosy


Kissed by sunshine

caressed with just enough rain

Springtime’s cheeks blush rosy

in the lavish beauty of the apple blossom

Can I just say… ohmyfreakinggosh!

Gorgeous crab apple trees line my street and in full bloom they cast the most beautiful rosy hue everywhere as the light filters through them.  It’s just ahhh… Yesterday, the strength of their vibrant color made the inside of my kitchen a rosy tone – and that is saying something, seeing as it’s actually a 70’s harvest gold color.  I know, ew right?  It’s in dire need of updating.  ;)

Anyway, it’s absolutely lovely outside here right now with springtime happening.  Hope it’s lovely where you are too…

With Each Step


The mind can go in a thousand directions, but on this beautiful path, I walk in peace.  With each step, the wind blows.  With each step, a flower blooms.”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh








Just a few of the flowers blooming on my path here as my mind goes in a thousand directions while I try to walk in peace with the winds of life blowing.

It really is a beautiful path though.  Thanks for the reminder Thich!


May your path be filled with beauty too, and with…

Sensuous Springtime


Ah sensuous springtime

when all the earth comes alive

sights, sounds and scents allure


Plump pink buds eager to open

unfurl their soft, tender petals

exposing bright blossoms

releasing a sweet, luscious fragrance

arousing my senses

awakening desire


Ah sensuous springtime

when all the earth comes alive


and me along with it…

 There’s just something about apple blossoms…

When I Think of You


In the morning when I rise

in the evening when I close my eyes

when the sun shines high in midday skies

is when

you’re on my mind


And in all the moments in between too

because when I think of you


is always

These Tears


These tears

they keep falling

like the cold rain that weeps down my window pane 

from gloomy skies

are my eyes

as these tears

they keep falling

Hanging There With You


Though worn out, wind beaten, battered and bruised 

know you’re not alone love, I’m hanging there with you

Whereas distance separates us, many miles apart

Spirit connects us within our hearts

And together we’ll weather whatever winds blow 

until the time comes to finally let go

Then we’ll dance on the breeze into endless blue skies

amidst fluffy white clouds our souls will fly

There will be no more suffering, no more pain

only love and joy and peace will reign

Before the Evening Comes


Evening begins to fall, as daylight gives way to night

and on the brisk spring breeze, dark clouds roll in

as we stand, together, courageous

with the light of the moon glowing between us

just before the evening comes
