I would challenge anyonewho thinks they love nature more than me, can get lost in it longer, feel more content in it, a belonging, have it restore balance more fully, see what I feel gifted to see, get any closer to the most supreme being...I am happy in nature. As much as the 2020 school … Continue reading On Happiness

How can I do those thingsI need to tend towhen my soul heard your non-whispercalling me my own muse? How can I keep orderwith this flutter of fancy withinthat came … Continue reading October Blooms
As the sun sets, and sangria kisses my lips, I twirl white petals in my fingertips, manipulating them into the frame, and with my dreams, I do the same, as if the halo of the golden light will bring my heart's desires to life, and for added measure, or perhaps because I can't help but … Continue reading Evening Petals
The sun each early morning seems to highlight the flowers with extra meaning, the tenderness emitting such soft-spoken beauty that celestially enwraps my soul and whispers finally, "Welcome home," and I've never known this feeling, never seen in the interaction between the petals and beams realized dreams on the brink until there was you.

It draws me in, such an unexpected sight, yellow-bursting heads, mini-suns against the muted, so bold and bright. So many thoughts beyond the beauty begin to orbit in my mind. I am reminded of childhood, … Continue reading Sunflowers in the Sand

Each day with you, another bud of me follows suit, springs eternally. Poem … Continue reading Another Bud
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
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.
In the silence, blooms slowly awaken from deep sleep, each petal fading in to life, colored gradually by individual rays of soft, natural light. I wait in line. The peace already activating me inside, a hymnal hum with lost lyrics returning to mind. Here comes my light... I am ready. Old me, goodbye. Evolution of … Continue reading Silent Awakening
