Poetry Sunday-Late Summer Rains

Poetry Sunday-Late Summer Rains

Late Summer Rains     Late summer rains renew the parched landscape. Bringing late blooming flowers Kissed all too often by approaching frosty stares.     Late, last minute visitors find an oasis there Grateful for each drop of nectar. While bees sleep on flowers waiting for the warmth of the sun. Slowing in their […]

Poetry Sunday-Shadow Side

    Shadow Side     “Do you know your shadow side?” She one day asked of me. A perplexed expression held my face, While hers was hard to see.     “It is not a place of uncertainty, or one of fear my love. It is not an illusion, or a great mystery born […]

August Break Continues

August Break Continues

“Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the ‘creative bug’ is just a wee voice telling you, ‘I’d like my crayons back, […]

Poetry Sunday-August Muse

August Muse     August seems such a strange month. The weather shifting in and out of season.

Wildlife Lessons:  Being Foxy

“You should never turn down the offer of another man’s story,’ the fox persisted, moving off a little further into the trees ahead. ‘Stories are the only thing that separates us from the animals after all.”  ~T.B. McKenzie       Isn’t he adorable…so sleek and beautiful!  That is our Hunter.  He came to our […]

Poetry Sunday-Summer Breezes

Poetry Sunday-Summer Breezes

  Summer Breezes      A sea of gold set ablaze in the hot sun. I squint to watch a monarch dance with a bee, Adrift on the sultry breeze. As it caresses my skin and sets my soul on fire, I am lost in the lazy hum of the garden. All life here has succumbed […]
