Poetry Sunday-Joyful Play

Poetry Sunday-Joyful Play

  Joyful Play   With arms outstretched, I whirl around Floating, spinning above the ground. Tiny feet dance on large shiny shoes, Piggy back rides with giants amuse.     As I ride the waves on the back of a whale, Now thrown off, high in the air I sail! And on the sandy beach we […]

End of Month Potpourri-March 2015

End of Month Potpourri-March 2015

Springtime is the land awakening. The March winds are the morning yawn. ~Quoted by Lewis Grizzard in Kathy Sue Loudermilk, I Love You       In my neck of the woods, here in the northeast, spring takes her sweet time.  She slowly walks into my garden, and in March she is just beginning to yawn. […]

Poetry Sunday-When The Light Went Out

Poetry Sunday-When The Light Went Out

When The Light Went Out     The light went out of my life that day. It was swallowed whole, trapped in a cave. Though I try in vain to bring it back, It alludes me now, gone to black.     And I feel somedays like the walking dead. Nowhere am I going, nowhere have […]

Conversations In The Garden- On Aware...

Conversations In The Garden- On Awareness

Poetry Sunday-Snow Go!

Poetry Sunday-Snow Go!

    Snow Go!   O Woe, There’s still snow. Spring should be here, but the snow won’t go.   O So, It’s too slow. For March has come, and the garden wants to grow.   Go Go, It’s time for you snow, To leave us behind, and let the warm winds blow.   O […]

Wildlife Lessons-Cedar Waxwings Play

Wildlife Lessons-Cedar Waxwings Play

“It is a happy talent to know how to play.”  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson     Last May, as I sat on my comfortable lounge chair recovering from surgery, I happened to hear a sound that was about the only thing that would get me up and out of that chair.  You see the surgery was for […]

Poetry Sunday-Return of the Red Wing

Poetry Sunday-Return of the Red Wing

  Return of the Red Wing     A black silhouette high in a tree, Memories harken to summer. Hush.  No it couldn’t be!       While the snowflakes fall and cold winds blow. It must be too soon, Come closer-I must know.       A tell-tale sign, it’s easy to spy; stretch […]
