End of Month Potpourri-April 2015

End of Month Potpourri-April 2015

The potential of the average person is like a huge ocean unsailed, a new continent unexplored, a world of possibilities waiting to be released and channeled toward some great good. ~ Brian Tracy     For this month’s potpourri, I am continuing my thoughts about self-love.  Self-love and self-care are things we are not routinely […]

Poetry Sunday-This Holy Vessel

Poetry Sunday-This Holy Vessel

  This Holy Vessel     This holy vessel now in decay- The shell cracked, withering. Paint peeling, boards warped. It’s sailing days gone.  Beached now- Bleached and rotting in the storm’s spray.     I see its bolder brash days. Sails full, catching the wind, Riding the rough waters. Strong masts unbreakable- Now bent, […]

Loving My Scars

Loving My Scars

 “Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you.”  ~Unknown       I have lived my life with many scars.  Those visible childhood scars from when I fell off my bike.  Or the time my hand went through the plate-glass storm door…ouch and long story. […]

Poetry Sunday-The Garden of Life

Poetry Sunday-The Garden of Life

  Garden of Life     I fell upon the garden of life and it sang to me a joyous song, Beckoning me ever forward onto a path along a crumbling wall.     And I sat and contemplated the flow and rhythm, While the trees held me tight and the grasses gave me rest.   […]

Conversations In The Garden-On Living...

Conversations In The Garden-On Living with Uncertainty

“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next.  Delicious Ambiguity.”  ~Gilda Radner […]

Poetry Sunday-How It Feels

Poetry Sunday-How It Feels

  How It Feels     I know how it feels to have lost, As if the life I know has ended. Moving through a vortex, Not really living, just existing.     I know how it feels to hurt deep inside, that intense pain in your heart. As if a vital piece is missing, and […]

Surrender

Surrender

“I wonder if pain comes from surrendering or resisting?”  ~Donna Lynn Hope     I have been taking stock recently of my life.  This journey in retirement has been interesting, and has taught me many things so far.  With a year into this journey, I am not sure sometimes if I am where I am […]

Poetry Sunday-Upon Spring’s Win...

Poetry Sunday-Upon Spring’s Wing

  Upon Spring’s Wing Spring glides in slowly on her soft, gentle wing. She floats down easily warmth touching everything. In the garden now bare, stirring the senses throughout, The critters are returning with joyful song and shouts.     The drifting scents linger and stir me awake, From my winter doldrums and meditative state. […]

Wildlife Lesson-Orange Pride

Wildlife Lesson-Orange Pride

“Birds are flying over the garden. What are you doing inside the house? Join them! If you can’t join them, at least open the window and greet them!” ― Mehmet Murat ildan      On March 20th spring crawled in even though we had cold air and snow covering the garden.  But it was the signs that […]
