The Growth Ahead…

It is through difficult times

That our hearts become stronger

And compassion clears a path for healing.

Everyday Beauty…

As I trudge through my everyday moments,

My breathe suddenly gives way

To the color pink…

Wrapping itself around the edges of the rose.

Deepening color and

Reaching to the far interior rounded petals.

Soft, smooth  blossoms fold over… 

With heavy dew, sipped through the sweet morning air.

My heart drinks in the essence of flower perfumed thoughts.

And my spirit sings awareness of simple wonders.

My Pink Mood…

Whimsical wonder

Of the lingering mystic

Makes my mood feel pink.

My Loving Shadow…

Every time my gaze

Crosses your path, I feel your

Cherished, heavy love.

Ordinary is the color of dreams…

This ordinary grass stem gleams sunny rays out of ominous formations.

Filling the outstretched limbs of shadows with warm colors,

Which clothe the shape of dreams

Sunset Lullaby…

Mother Sun singing

Long, golden hued lullabies

For slumbering souls.

Here is a post to celebrate Water Water Everywhere. This is actually just a small puddle, but the reflection was beautiful.

Frozen Quarry Pond — Water Water Everywhere #14


Fleeting memories

of enchanted dreamers fill

the winsome, star filled sky.

Love Story…

Affection in furry form. Breathtaking love of my life.  

Even now, my heart is fractured as I think of Yuri. 

However, he is still here.  

Influencing and showing his presence with a yearning of meaning.

Magical  music glides over mosaic remembrances and in certain moments

The holy hollowness of my heart beats the passion of  a peaceful spirit, 

Gentleness glistening in the sweet memories of long walks and silent conversations. 

Still here, in my mind, in my heart a steady gaze tells me he is silently with me. 

How can it be that this gentle  dog still grips my heart in grief…

He was the one who guided me through  healing

A  path of heartache that had clenched  and paralyzed me with fear.

He helped in maneuvering the treacherous waters of life, so I began to  believe in myself. 

The tears I shed are big, real tears of  sorrow and loss. 

Yet I am healed through his everlasting devotion of hope.

And life lessons continue to lead me in the love that is waiting for me within the eyes of nature.

This image is part of the The topic is Love Story. My son shot this with his iPhone 6 witnessing me saying goodbye to Yuri. He was 13 and crippled with arthritis. We were fortunate that we were able to put him down in his beloved backyard. I am convinced that Yuri was and will always be an Angel. Photo is cropped and edited in snapseed.

A Valentine wish…

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day :). My wish is for everyone to be surrounded by love, whether it be romantic, family, friends or furry babies. 💕 This is Buttercup enjoying some Valentine roses.
