Music Monday – Brand New

Tightly bound

beautiful creature being remade

on the verge 

of life brand new

Having just had a birthday, I’m sensing a bit of this in my own life. (Here come all the butterfly metaphors 😉).  Or maybe it’s because of being on the verge of autumn here.  Autumn isn’t exactly ‘life brand new,’ but it’s oh so beautiful, and it makes me come alive! 🍁🍂😍

 

And because everything reminds me of a song…

 

Brand new day, brand new week – may yours be beautiful!

As Evening Falls

As evening falls

my senses rise

the garden beckons, come

 

With the city quieted

nature whispers to me through the voices of the trees swishing

sh…

listen

see

smell, feel

taste

 

Colors deepen

and shadows dance

playing with the fading light that flickers through the foliage

 

Lush scents entice

The fragrance of a thousand flowers in bloom is in the air

it’s absolutely intoxicating 

 

The warm breeze on my skin

like a seductive caress

awakens the sweet taste of desire

 

My senses rise

as evening falls

Just Peachy

 

Smooth creamy petals like a cool refreshing sorbet

Only this kind you taste with your eyes instead of your tongue

Just Peachy

Found this little gem from 2015 in my drafts and thought I’d share.

 

Hope your day is just peachy! 🍑

Sunday Morning Senses

A distant motor hums

birds singing

trees swish in the breeze

 

Flowers blooming

an ant crawls

wispy clouds float across a blue sky

 

Fresh cut grass

an indistinct scent of flowers

damp wood mulch

 

Stiff, smooth pen between my fingers

the coolness of metal against the back of my bare arms

a faint breeze

 

Rich, flavorful herbal coffee

cocoa lip balm

a hint of floral somehow mingled in

Just a few observations as I checked in with my five senses this morning; grounding me in the present moment.

 

I don’t have a photo to share from my observations this morning, but here’s a random picture I snapped earlier this week as I enjoyed some peaceful moments by a stream…

 

Wishing you peaceful moments today…

Wish You Were Here

The moon is out this morning, honey

winking at me from the blue sky

and absolutely everything is blooming!

 

Apple blossom petals are dancing on the wind

carried by the music of the birds chattering away

 

All the green things are neon and florescent

sparkling in the morning sunlight

 

The air is so unbelievably fragrant and fresh

all the glorious scents of spring mingled together 

 

The city hasn’t woken up yet

so all sounds and sights of nature have center stage

 

It’s all so very beautiful, honey

 

I wish you were here…
