Hands of Time

 

Generations of love

holding onto you

through the hands of time

An impromptu (and rather poorly organized) generational snapshot taken this past Mother’s Day of all of our hands – my mother’s, mine, my daughter’s, and my granddaughter’s.  I love the concept of this – all of us having a ‘hand’ in Noelle’s upbringing, and I’m so thankful I get to be such a big part of her life.  I’m also thankful for my Mom and my daughter and the closeness we all share.  I am truly so blessed.

 

Those cheeks of Noelle’s though… just look at them… omygosh sooo kissable!  

I think I’ll go kiss them right now…

Wishing all of you many blessings and a wonderful day!

Bleeding Hearts

 

From hearts that bleed

love trickles down

From droplets of beauty

rains joy

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.”

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…

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
