Welcome Summer

Happy Summer Solstice! ☀️

No color speaks summer more to me than the color yellow in all its varying hues.  Whether bright…

or soft…

And even though this next one is mostly orange, it still speaks summer to me – especially while basking under the bright sunlight…

☀️

May beautiful things speak to you today! Many blessings for a lovely summer, and a day (and heart) filled with Light…

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

Bloom Like Flowers

 “The most precious gift we can offer anyone is our attention. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.”

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…
