Earth Day 2017

 

On Earth Day

Mother Earth prays

hoping we’ll hear her plea 

 

For it is through us alone

we can protect our home

for future generations to see

I’ve recently been enjoying the beautiful artwork of Josephine Wall, and when I came across this piece of hers, I immediately thought of Mother Earth and Earth Day.  It’s entitled “Sadness of Gaia” and if you click on the picture, it will bring you to the artist’s webpage and her interpretation/explanation of this piece.  To me it seems as if Mother Earth is praying.  Let’s listen…

Frozen Falls

 

The melody of rushing waters

never ceasing

Nature’s flow persists

through winter’s frozen falls

A good friend and I took a little road trip this past weekend in hopes of finding these falls completely frozen over, because how cool would that be?  But to our surprise, and delight, they were not.  We enjoyed them much more being only partially frozen.  Listening to the beautiful and refreshing melody of rushing waters was an extra lovely sound to hear to in the middle of winter when nature usually sleeps.

 

Wishing all of you a melodious and refreshing week!

Wordless Wednesday

 

The sea speaks to me without words…

Silent Sunday

 

My soul listens to the silence of snow falling

 

Frosty flakes descend from the heavens

floating gracefully to the earth

poetry in motion

covering all of nature in a fresh blanket of pure white

saying

hush now, be still, rest

 

My soul listens to the silence of snow falling

Sorry, I have no photo to share with this one today, just my words as I sip my coffee, watching (and listening to) the silent snow falling outside my window this Sunday morning…

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…
