serene scenery transfer trickles the peace into me like a healthy IV the sound’s ripples carry me inward, deep to a place i knew not but believed in an oasis where a soul self-refreshes and i move in slow motion to not disrupt the dream state colors so muted … Continue reading Serene Wrap
Bloom with me, my darling. This gentle embracing fills me with such resolution. Together, we can weather any storm; nothing clouds my view of doable solutions. Bloom with me, my darling. Let our dreams merge with our petals meshing as one. Together, we fuel each other, and I fully believe we can reach the sun. … Continue reading Bloom with Me
Fire in the sky millions of miles away; we safely observe the colorful, light-scattering display each day, gathering in peace- ful assembly, all reveling in the undeniable greatness of the planet we are sharing, if but only temporarily before we snap back to the unnatural reality, manmade distorted discordance fueled among a clashing society. If … Continue reading Fire in Our Hearts
She is the sun; he, the moon. Her radiance sustains the whole galaxy: her rays embrace all. "She will never notice me." Her light reaches him though, making him feel he is aglow himself. "She is out of my orbit, the entire universe's mademoiselle." Day and night, he thought of her and ways he could … Continue reading Solar Love Story
Delicate petals lit by rising sun:silent, vulnerable beauty stuns.Poise and grace and subtle strength:symbols captivate my gaze.Dawning day, new-life blooms:sweet dream-beginnings perfume.Magic seeps into my veins:soulful elixir coats toprevent future pains.Words and images both birthed today.
Only your touch do I desire, gentle brush under which I catch fire from a spark you so tenderly nourish, slowly adding more kindling in a shivering sensory flourish… your magic hands put me under your spell; please don’t release me, let me naturally melt into you… take from me … Continue reading Only Your Touch
Wow, everyone! I just discovered this amazing writer/photographer I know you will love if you are following me because she and I are truly kindred spirits. My soul simply wants to linger in the lovely land of her sweet words reflecting on nature and the Creator. She only has a few followers, so we simply need to change that, as it is a shame to not have her gifts enrich more lives daily.
I recently merged multiple current and past WP blogs of my own into my main one, now the only one. Yesterday, I made the decision to leave Twitter and close one of my two IG accounts. I rarely use FB, just to keep in touch with extended family and childhood friends. I wanted to focus more on WordPress, where all of my true connections seem to stem from. I’ve been creating so much that it’s been hard to keep up with my reading and connecting with others on their blogs/sites. This morning, I enjoyed some spiritual reflection with Dave Peever’s “A Little Wisdom–Humility” (thank you to the WP friend who recommended him) and among other lovely treasures, dove deeper into C.L. Fisher’s site, which I am reblogging here. I had been following her but had not noticed her until now.
So far (day one), my decision to try to make social media more meaningful to me has paid off! I do truly enjoy keeping my circle small and authentic. I do truly enjoy others’ shared talents filling my heart and lighting brighter my soul. I did run across some glooooooomy posts, too. I’ve had my share of darkness, but I am truly an advocate of hope and light, no matter what. There is always goodness to be found if we simply choose to focus our lenses on it. That is not to deny the bad and ugly but to counter it. I believe love will always be the answer.
Please do enjoy this sweet soul’s incredible offerings…
Fill your day with more positives than negatives, readers. It’s a choice. It’s a lifestyle. It is not easy, but it is possible and worth it.
“Music is the divine way to tell
beautiful, poetic things
to the heart.” – Pablo Casals.
I plug my ears with cello song,
breathe in deeply and slowly release
air, stress, and all that is negative;
the bow takes me to mountains,
then through a green glade,
and I finally find myself barefoot
in sand near an indigo ocean —
a tempest far, far away is no
threat, but the crash and fall
a reminder of His magnificence;
the sea can go no further
than His commands, my flesh
is clay, and my spirit surrenders
to an eternal dance, moved by
the sweetest cello notes
in heaven’s symphony.

This photo popped up on my Facebook Memories this morning with some comments about my inspirational journey that made me teary. It is of my daughter looking like she is deep in thought. I had just uprooted her life with a sudden move from Ohio to Florida when I accepted my first teaching job at … Continue reading Southbound
Lost and wandering upon endless winding paths, not fretful, yet homeless, a nomad among camps, with True North obscure in a fading compass, pole star finally comes into focus. With God always beside me, never do I walk alone, but now I sense clearly the direction to go. My balance … Continue reading Wandering (With Audio)
