Dear Precious Child ---

First and always - like the sunrise - you are perfect Love.

You show us how to feel life.
How to roll in it, run with it.
How amazing to see it through your eyes!

You are so kind to others - always first to see the perfection of Spirit in their eyes.

The stars shine your magnificence -
the wind whispers your perfection.

My love for you could never be less, will always be more.

October flush

How did the rose ever open its heart and give this world all its beauty? It felt the encouragement of Light against its Being. --- Hafiz

Dandelion Thinking ...

I took this photo a few days ago ...  it reminded me of this beautiful poem -

Dandelion Thinking
- Monica Cromhout - 

don't care
that nobody cares
to cultivate dandelions.

 don't know
that everyone knows -
they grow everywhere.
Underfoot. In cracks.

The smell of Spring ...!

Don't you love the smell of Spring? I can smell it coming each year - it makes me come alive - both inside and outside!

I thaw my winter bones and spring into creativity.

... Earth laughs in flowers ...

These treasures appear in my garden each year ...

In the pond ... 


Covering the pergola ... 

I looooove Spring - both inside and outside......!

The Journey

The Journey 
- Mary Oliver -

One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice-
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
"Mend my life!"
each voice cried.
But you didn't stop.
You knew what you had to do,
though the wind pried
with its stiff fingers
at the very foundations,
though their melancholy
was terrible.
It was already late
enough, and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen branches and 
but little by little,
as you left their voices behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do 
the only thing you could do
determined to save
the only life you could save
