The sea speaks to me without words…

I snapped this in the Fern Room on a recent ‘green therapy’ visit to The Marjorie McNeely Conservatory at Como Park Zoo and Conservatory.  I can’t even tell you how wonderfully refreshing it was to be amidst the green and growing things…

 

Wishing you all a wonderful week.  May it be filled with beauty and grace, and as always…

I wonder…

 

I wonder…

 

Do you ever think of me

or am I just a faded memory

all but forgotten

amidst the fragments of your forsaken dreams

 

I wonder…

 

Do you ever think of me

when you gaze upon a full moon

as its mystical light

glows through the tangled branches of your thoughts

 

I wonder…

 

because I’m still here, always thinking of you…

Winter Dawn

 

I awake before the sun

just as the first hints of light kiss the horizon

deep sapphire skies glisten 

a mystical backdrop against winter’s barren branches

 

All is quiet

except for the music within my own soul

playing the melody of transformation from darkness to light

as I witness the dawning of a new winter day

 

through frost covered windows

Fresh Start

 

New beginnings and fresh starts

renew the spirit and bring hope to the heart

My New Year’s Resolution for 2017 is…

 

…to become bare and blank…

 

“Who would write on a page already filled with writings?

Who would plant a sapling where one is already planted?

One would look for an empty page and virgin soil.

Become bare like the earth so the Beloved may plant His seed, become a blank page so His pen may write upon you.”

 

~ Rumi

 

Perhaps that way, what pours forth from me in this new year will come from the divine…

But hopefully this blog won’t be as bare and blank as it has been for the past several months.  😉

Can I just say…

2016 = whew!

 

Wishing all of you much love and many blessings in the coming year!  ❤
