walk

you can walk alone into the woods

-yet you are never alone

follow where your spirit leads

look with wide eyes at the beauty surrounding you

listen with intent, all forms of life hum around you

breathe in the freshness and let it cleanse you

let nature’s verdant intuition gently wrap you in it’s tender tendrils

until peace takes root

eagle

taken with my cell, in my neighborhood 🙂

It isn’t a great picture but let me tell you they are so beautiful.  There are two eagles that live in this nest…and i think there may be a little one 🙂 We see the adults flying around often and they are massive!  I swear their wingspan must be as wide as my outstretched arms. The nest is huge as well… I’m thinking if someone were brave/stupid enough to climb the tree and face their wrath they could probably curl up and take a nap in it!

Dancing in the moonlight

I swear it is the moon… not just a bright dot on a black background!  And it is dark enough that you could dance without being seen 😉

Sunday- haiku

another Sunday

bringing beauty at daybreak

outside my window

lizards scampering

squirrels chattering great truths

the yard is alive

sipping my coffee

i prepare to start the day,

already begun

possibilities…

what will you bring to the day

it is up to you

S

 

Sarah sits

silently smiling

sipping sugared spearmint

splendorous surroundings

supply soul sating sanctuary

stimulating scenery

sparks speculation

Sarah sits serenely

shepherding sagacity

scribbling; shaping stanzas solemnly 

strangers startle

sabotaging solitude

speaking, shrieking symphony

shatters silence

Sarah’s secret sanctuary spoiled

snarling sullenly

she stands suddenly

Sarah stormily saunters south

Flowers

Some flowers in our yard…while they are still here 🙂

Insect Orchestra

I listen to cicadas sing

zing, zing, zing

the same song for hours

as bees buzz ’round the flowers

Ο

afternoon fades,

gives way to night

crickets join in

and play the chorus

Ο

katydids’ calls and answers resonate

I contemplate

the symphony of the forest
