haunting beauty

IMG_7392walks in forgotten places

the whisper of the leaves

as they are temporarily displaced

by intruding footsteps

on the well-worn path

the memory haunts me

the path remains, but you are gone

no longer will we explore the unknown

for you have gone into the unknown

You have found peace forever more.

While I wait on the shore

listening for signs, that on earth, one day

peace and happiness will be found around the world

Till then, the haunting beauty will remind me of home

and the comfort of unconditional love, beyond here and into the unknown.

sometimes

IMG_6641Sometimes, we just sit around,

we don’t make a sound

except perhaps a burp now and then

really the day stretches on

we don’t know where the time has gone

It takes years of trial and error to develop this useful skill.  We live in a world of go, go, go.

IMG_9110Sitting with only the gentle stirrings of the world around you.

Can be a difficult task indeed.

Try bundling up and doing it in the dead of winter.

It is an amazing release of unwanted “baggage”.

Sometimes, the road that beckons isn’t the road you are on.

IMG_7574You will find that stepping into a different space, will also bring you to another place and maybe even time.

Live each moment with the interest you give a new book that has caught your fancy, where each page is riveting and you drink in each word, fingers poised to turn the page.

Our lives are just as interesting, when we sit in the silence of the moment, The reality of BEING is rejuvenating.

Sometimes, it simply is… no more..no less…

Bom dia everyone, have a good day dear friends.. I carry you in my heart always..

blueberry day

 

cukes 4

you are right’

there is not a blueberry in sight

the cukes are fine

certainly not the same

is a nickel a dime?

oh gosh and darn

maybe a tomato, cucumber sandwich will do

nope, the thought does not appeal

Only blueberries will calm

so sound the alarm

I will be up at dawn

for that sweet, tantalizing taste

of fresh blueberries sold by the case

water colour 3.30

Sometimes we just have to make do

there are no blueberries, there is nothing to do, but wait.

tomorrow will be another day.               tomorrow will come and I will no longer want blueberries.. maybe?  What do you think?

Sweet dreams dear friends.  If your cloud floats near mine, please wave.

Smile as you pass by,  I will feel your vibe… and pass it on.

rusted vs reality

 

rusted memory

rusted metal & chrome

look at those lines

oh to have you for my own

time has not been kind

still I wish you were mine

be my July valentine

Q

july 19

oh do get on with it

I am trying to sleep

tsk, groaning and moaning over metal and chrome

honestly woman, you have me

 I am here with you at home

appreciate what is near and dear

metal and chrome, are cold

I am soft and warm

best of all .. I don’t rust

my words you can trust

It is true, I do have conversations with my dog.  she inspires some good ideas with her feedback.  It can take me a day or two to unravel her wisdom…but if she can get me to understand the jumble that often tumbles from my mind, why not…

PL Precept # 17  Grasp what is most essential

words are only words

sometimes they tell a story .. sometimes they don’t

It is the listener / reader that gives them meaning

the pie (I was the witness)

 

Bonnie pie caught on filmThis is a piece of pie (she said)

let me explain,

it is my second piece of pie (she said)

Bonnie Perth 7_edited

fresh baked, rhubarb & strawberry crumble

a dab of whipped cream

teamed with a fresh pot of tea

not a dream, no

I really intend to eat the whole thing

Yes, that is what she said….

Bonnie Perth 7.04.18

I did it! I did it!

So pleased was she, not a crumb was to be seen

that was one dessert

that made an impact

for now it is a fact

she willingly ate

a second piece of pie

that is no lie

you know who you are!!!!!

you ate 2 pieces of pie.

 

PL Calendar day 6

Your joy will increase, Once you make up your mind

If you’re going to do it.  Do it with determination.  your resolve will create good rhythm.

*** my friend made up her mind, she would have a second piece of pie.  She did it.  We had a jolly time, the calorie count was of no mind.  They will be counted another time.  =^_^= *****

owl or beetle

Tin man June 25

an owl or a beetle

in the end it was neither,

instead the rusted tin man emerge

and I heaved a sigh of relief

with the decision made,

I could go on with my day

the sun is high

a heat wave is on its way

it is not good-bye

cuz somewhere in your day

I will pop in and

click or hoot

a boo

at YOU

Have a wonderful start to a sunny happy long week-end if you are in Canada, if in another part of the world, enjoy the moments from sunrise, to sunset and the twinkling  winking beyond… Hooooooooooooooo Hoooooooooooooo loves you..-^+^-   I do!

every day a holiday

 

flowers PA1

Rejoice every day

what is the occasion you may say

it is an every day, a new day

when you can greet every one around

and say,

my words may be simple, 

but they are true,

and yes, they are meant for you.
