Weekly Photo Challenge: Weathered

 

Ghosts of the past speak

as the sun sets

on aged boards

weathered by the test of time

I came across this old weathered barn while I was in Southern Illinois this past summer for the eclipse.  Whenever I see old buildings like this, I always wonder about their story and listen for any whispers from ghosts past…

Your Face

 

Your face warms me like the sun

glowing brilliant and bright

shattering the darkness with dazzling light

as dawn breaks over the horizon

on this frosty winter morn

Music Monday – Happy New Year

Few videos are more inspiring for me to watch than time lapse nature photography set to music, and this one seems fitting as the “sunset” on 2017 has come and we celebrate the “dawning” of 2018.  Happy New Year my friends, may it be filled with wonderful, beautiful, inspiring things for you!

You Are

 

You are my sunrise

you are the moon

you are the wispy clouds in a sky of blue

 

You are my sunset

you are the stars

you’re where my dreams fly when they traverse afar

Fire in the Sky

Sky on fire

a new day dawns

burning with possibilities

Each morning when I arrive at work and pull into my space in the upper level of the parking ramp, I get to watch just as the sun comes up.  Even amidst the concrete and all of the other uninspiring man-made objects of the landscape before me, its beauty takes my breath away…

 

Wishing you beautiful and breathtaking moments today…

And for those of you here with me in the US, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving too!

Music Monday

 

A beautiful original piece by my daughter…

 

 

It’s been several years since she’s done anything with her music, so listening to this makes me feel a bit melancholy.  But some beautiful things have happened in our lives since then – my precious granddaughter for one!  So that touch of melancholy is also mingled with deep gratitude…

 

Thanks for listening, have a beautiful Monday!
