Poetry Sunday-Bride’s Feather

      Bride’s Feather     Behold the sight of creamy white, Like feathers standing, stretching, bending.

Conversations In The Garden: On Bore...

Conversations In The Garden:  On Boredom

“I’m bored’ is a useless thing to say. I mean, you live in a great, big, vast world that you’ve seen none percent of. Even the inside of your own mind is endless; it goes on forever, inwardly, do you understand? The fact that you’re alive is amazing, so you don’t get to say ‘I’m […]

Wildlife Lesson:  Bathing’s For The Birds

“The bath is one of the places I prefer, certainly not a place I leave readily, a place where one can close the door and remove oneself, put oneself in parentheses, as it were, from the rest of humanity. It is a place for reading and thinking, where one’s mind wanders easily, where time seems […]

Wildlife Lesson-Who’s Your Momma?

“I have a mother,” said the baby bird. “I know I do. I will find her. I will. I WILL!” ~P. D. Eastman, Are You My Mother?     One day this summer, I was looking out on the garden as I had heard a bit of chattering that told me baby birds were about….or […]

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 […]

Poetry Sunday-Summersweet

Poetry Sunday-Summersweet

  Summersweet     Sweet warm fragrance catches the wind, Explodes with all your senses drawn in. While the sun dances through the greening leaves, Unto the flowers the colors do cleave.     Pollinators catch sight as they fly on by, Stopping for a sip, letting out a sigh. They know the secret of this summer sweet swoon, […]

Poetry Sunday-Summer Memories

  Summer Memories     Lazy days beneath the leaves, Soft rain falling, feel the warm breeze. Shouts of joy, blooms of gold, Dreams of childhood; tales to be told.     When finally in my older days, These are the summer memories that never will fade.      © Donna Donabella 2012     […]

Fun In The Sun Days     Humid days, hazy days, Crazy, busy travel days.     Fireworks and Fair days, Burgers, popsicles and S’more days.     Sprinklers and beach days, Flip flops, sunburns, staying cool days.     Please never let them end- These summer fun in the sun days!      © Donna […]

Poetry Sunday-Summer Delights

Poetry Sunday-Summer Delights

    Summer Delights     Spring turns to summer, Night turns to day. And all about me the garden does play.   Bees fill their pockets, young birds take first flight- Me, I’m staring up into the sky so bright.     Do I climb, do I soar, Do I lay in the grass […]

Poetry Sunday-Lazy Days

Poetry Sunday-Lazy Days

  Lazy Days     Lazy days return with warm, soft breezes. Regaining my senses, my natural rhythm, I wake with the sunrise.  To go swimming and wading in the creek, Exploring meadows to pick fresh, fragrant flowers.     There are afternoon naps beneath tall trees, Gazing at clouds to spy a ship, a […]
