Pretty in Pink

A joyful dance

Nature twirling in her frilly summer dress

A Bit of Morning Bliss

Fresh-picked lavender

luscious scents

garden views

things growing

blue skies

summer breeze

bare feet

warm sun on my skin

quiet city

rustling trees

bird song

good reads

coffee…

 

the only thing missing

is you…

Swept Away

Seize the day

be swept away

in the beauty of spring

Wish You Were Here

A crescent moon dangles in the blue sky like a sparkling jewel, as dusk settles in and the last remnant of light glows softly on the horizon

It’s too warm for a spring evening, but the warm breeze feels good against my skin, the heady scent of lilacs in full bloom fills the air

and fills me

with longing, lust, and love

 

Wish you were here, my darling…

Winter Ecstasy

 

“And don’t think the garden loses its ecstasy in winter.

It’s quiet, but the roots are down there riotous.”

                                                                                     ~ Rumi

 

 

And it won’t be long before that riot makes its way above ground.  In spite of the major snowstorm that recently made its way through here, I’m definitely sensing Spring is just around the corner – or should I say, just beneath the surface…

 

No matter the season, wishing you beauty and ecstasy today…

Wednesday Morning Meditations

 

I open my eyes to the soft, pale light of winter’s lovely pastel palette

All is quiet

it’s just before dawn

There’s a sense of calm in the air

but also, of anticipation

Something wonderful is about to happen

Yes, a brand new day

filled with promise

I slide out from beneath my warm blankets, clothed only in dawn’s soft glow

Finding my robe, I gaze out the window

at snow covered branches bathed in the gentle hues of morning

In front of that window, is a sleeping kitty curled up in a chair

So sweet and cozy, I resist the urge to wake her with my show of affection

With pen in hand and coffee nearby, I write

and I wait

not actually waiting

My mind is empty, not thinking, just being, just absorbing and savoring all that this present moment offers 

Multiple moments tick by, but I hardly notice the lapse of time

Soon I hear the quiet stirrings of loved ones awakening

Increasing light pours in through my window, although the sun still hasn’t quite yet risen over the horizon 

Pastels gradually give way to an orange glow

sorbet colored clouds hang in a sort of suspended animation, slowed by the cold winter air

Floorboards creek in the next room 

and increasing traffic sounds outside mingle with the sound of cartoons playing downstairs

The day has indeed begun

As the sun now explodes over the horizon bathing all the world in its golden light

I’m filled with deep gratitude

 

That I don’t have to hurry off to work today  😉

Sorry I don’t have a photo to share with this one, I was too ‘busy’ just being.  Plus, there isn’t any frost on my windows this morning ~ apparently a windchill of minus 8 isn’t cold enough.  😉  I suppose I could have snapped a photo of my sleeping kitty, I haven’t shared any of her lately.  Maybe next time…

 

Well thanks for reading.  Happy Wednesday and keep warm ~ or cool, depending on the weather wherever you are today…
