Sensuous Springtime

 

Ah sensuous springtime

when all the earth comes alive

sights, sounds and scents allure

 

Plump pink buds eager to open

unfurl their soft, tender petals

exposing bright blossoms

releasing a sweet, luscious fragrance

arousing my senses

awakening desire

 

Ah sensuous springtime

when all the earth comes alive

 

and me along with it…

These Tears

 

These tears

they keep falling

like the cold rain that weeps down my window pane 

from gloomy skies

are my eyes

as these tears

they keep falling

Hanging There With You

 

Though worn out, wind beaten, battered and bruised 

know you’re not alone love, I’m hanging there with you

Whereas distance separates us, many miles apart

Spirit connects us within our hearts

And together we’ll weather whatever winds blow 

until the time comes to finally let go

Then we’ll dance on the breeze into endless blue skies

amidst fluffy white clouds our souls will fly

There will be no more suffering, no more pain

only love and joy and peace will reign

Before the Evening Comes

 

Evening begins to fall, as daylight gives way to night

and on the brisk spring breeze, dark clouds roll in

as we stand, together, courageous

with the light of the moon glowing between us

just before the evening comes

Winter Fog

 

In the stillness of an early winter morning

a dense fog settles upon the earth

clothing all of nature in a mysterious veil of mist

Leaving behind frosty sprinkles

as a garnish to last season’s treats

I love the fog.  Deliciously, mysterious fog!

 

I didn’t have my camera along with me when I came upon these frosty treats, but luckily I got a new phone that takes halfway decent photos, so I was able to capture the moment.  And a beautiful moment it was.

 

May your day be filled with beautiful moments, and with…

When It’s Time

 

Weary of feeling numb and void of creativity, I asked my sister

“When am I going to get my inspiration back?”

“When it’s time.  She answered  Perhaps tomorrow.”

My sister is so wise.

 

That must be why I try to be just like her…

Thanks for the inspiration, sis!  ❤

And thank you to all of you for being on this journey with me…

 

Here’s to inspiration, and to tomorrow ~ Happy New Year!

Things I Love About December

 

The invigorating scent of fresh pine

Peppermint flavored everything

Swirling snowflakes dancing on the wintry winds

and on my blog

Christmas music ringing out on the airways

The color red

Frosty windows

Animal tracks in the snow

Hot cocoa

A crackling fire on a cozy hearth

Warm winter clothes – mittens!  🙂

The extra sense of wonder and excitement in children

and in my pets

and in me

The increased spirit of giving and goodwill people have toward one another

Pretty packages containing special gifts for loved ones

Celebrating the greatest gift of all – the birth of Jesus ❤

Holiday lights sparkling everywhere

The warm glow of candlelight

Spending extra time with family and friends

Baking festive holiday treats

Clear crisp wintry night skies filled with bright stars

Frost on my windows

oh wait, I already mentioned that  😉

I’m experiencing a slight bit of overwhelm here in my little world at the moment, so I made this list to remind myself of everything I love about this time of year.

What do you love today?
