Thoughts on a Monday


Don’t let your dreams

get crowded out by weeds

Clear away the debris 

and set them free

I know my little rhyme is a bit on the cheesy side, but it’s what sprang to mind when I noticed my blue rock with the word Dream carved on it getting crowded by weeds in my garden…

I like to keep a more natural look to my garden, and actually allow some of what are considered to be ‘weeds’ grow in my garden.  But I have a few weeds crowding out my dreams in the garden of my life right now and I’m feeling like it might be time to do some weeding there.

Now, to figure out how to go about doing that…

Any ideas?  How do you ‘clear away the debris’?


Just some thoughts for you on a Monday…

Your Beauty


Your graceful beauty is a breath of fresh air

lightness and peace flutter into my heart

on the delicate wings of butterflies

Just some little butterfly friends I’ve come across here and there throughout this summer.  Hope you enjoyed them.  Their graceful beauty really is like a breath of fresh air to me.  🦋



May beauty and joy flutter into your day today…

Your Brave Light

Oppressive clouds hang low and heavy

but still your brave Light breaks through on the horizon

Casting the beautiful reflections of your endurance and fortitude 

Rays of love and a quiet hope glimmers upon the waters 

as a new day dawns

Keep shinning honey, I love you…

Be My Escape

Nestled within the center of your loving embrace

a shelter from the blazing sun

I kiss your beautiful face


You are my escape

Pretty in Pink

A joyful dance

Nature twirling in her frilly summer dress

A Bit of Morning Bliss

Fresh-picked lavender

luscious scents

garden views

things growing

blue skies

summer breeze

bare feet

warm sun on my skin

quiet city

rustling trees

bird song

good reads



the only thing missing

is you…
