Poetry Sunday-Do You Talk To The Bees...

Poetry Sunday-Do You Talk To The Bees?

    Do You Talk To The Bees?     Do you talk to the bees?  Well I do.  I wish them a good morning, with the sun’s first rays.  And as I do,  I give a wide berth to these buzzing teenagers, slow to wake.  They can be ornery, you see.  And if aroused, you […]

Beyond Words: Spring At The Lake

Beyond Words:  Spring At The Lake

“Silence was the cure, if only temporarily, silence and geography. But of what was I being cured? I do not know, have never known. I only know the cure. Silence, and no connections except to landscape.” -Mary Cantwell, Manhattan, When I Was Young     I wanted to wrap up this series with another trip back to […]

Poetry Sunday-Fire In The Sky

Poetry Sunday-Fire In The Sky

    Fire in the Sky     Darkness descends on the glowing embers of the day, all color fades to black. The silence sparkles under moonlight, as an obsidian horizon spins toward the new dawn- Fire in the Sky.      © Donna Donabella 2011   __________________________________________________________ This poem was also written in late fall […]

Poetry Sunday-Morning Shines Late Now

Poetry Sunday-Morning Shines Late Now

    Morning Shines Late Now   Morning shines late now in the garden, As the sun rises further south Not able to reach the height it once did months ago.     We are tracking time with darkness Traveling closer to winter-to the sacred Solstice From whence the light will again shine brighter. A […]

Winter’s Gifts

Winter’s Gifts

“There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you…. In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself.” ~Ruth Stout       Winter is a […]

End of Month Potpourri-October 2015

“Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.”  ~Jim Bishop       The morning of the full moon in September, the sun promised to rise in a glorious fashion.  The last bright star still glowed as the sun peeked over the horizon.  So I went out into the garden to […]

Morning Time

Morning Time

“Have you ever seen the dawn? Not a dawn groggy with lack of sleep or hectic with mindless obligations and you about to rush off on an early adventure or business, but full of deep silence and absolute clarity of perception? A dawning which you truly observe, degree by degree. It is the most amazing […]

Poetry Sunday-Winter Begins

Poetry Sunday-Winter Begins

Winter Begins     Flowing, following the elusive light as the season wanes and darkens Deeper into its cold, biting phase.   Searching, basking, squinting against the rays as they rise higher Making diamonds in the snow.   Slowly brightening our fleeting daylight as colors play on the clouds, Beginning and ending each day.   […]

Poetry Sunday-Reflections

Poetry Sunday-Reflections

  Reflections In A Garden   Old weary bones feel the ache now… stems broken and strewn, petals blackened and faded, rain and snow will beat it all down, back to the earth.     Tiny seeds linger, though, in rich soil… after a long rest, surging up and breaking through, life beginning again, always […]

Discovering My Life Force

Discovering My Life Force

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”  ~Martha Graham     I […]

  Saving A Life   In saving a life, you save a soul. A heart is mended, a light is shone.     In saving my life, a path was cleared. A breath was taken, there was no fear.     Giving back to life, now gratitude is expressed. A kindness is returned, a celebration […]
