Teardrops on petals
Morning reveals an
Teardrops on petals
Covid keeps crawling
Slowly creeping thru our land
Moving like a snail
Bringing some joy
To those who have none
In an obscure place
Many of us are in an obscure place right now. Walking unfamiliar paths, trying hard to find hope in the midst of all the new normal, yet, if we look, many times we will see little splashes of joy scattered along our path, tiny seeds planted to encourage us as we navigate through these challenging times.
Take some time to look for them today, usually they are found in unexpected places and just at the time they’re needed the most.
A bit of comfort
Springing up in time of need
Tiny flower of hope
Hope springs eternal in the human breast;
Man never Is, but always To be blest.
The soul, uneasy, and confin’d from home,
Rests and expatiates in a life to come.
—Alexander Pope, “An Essay on Man”
Today as I went out to visit my “Inspiration Rock Corner” to place a few new rocks I had painted, I happened to notice a tiny yellow flower blooming right next to the HOPE brick I had painted.
It seemed to match the little yellow flowers I had painted on the brick and I thought it not to be a co-incidence that the tiny flower had chosen that exact spot of all others in the yard to appear in bloom.

News dampens spirits,
Is the weather mimicking?
Summer has vanished
It’s July 2nd and in my area of the Pacific Northwest we are experiencing what I feel is a late start to good ol’ summertime.
The weather has been very changeable, quite like the daily news reports.
We’ve had a few warm days but not many and it seems more like Spring to me instead of Summer, as each day I awaken to gloomy cloudy skies, chilly temps and occasional rain sprinkling, this can put a damper on one’s spirit quite like the morning news reports often do lately.
Sigh. Oh where, oh where has my beloved Summer gone? Has she vanished with all our other normalcy?
I hope not. I hope she returns soon. I miss her sunny smile and gentle hugs of warmth.
How’s the weather where you reside? Are you experiencing the same, or does Summer alive and active in your area?
Across the heavens
Stretches a banner of fire
Blazing summer sun
All day I enjoyed the presence and the heat of the Summer Sun that has once again visited my area in the Pacific Northwest. I love summer and sunshine!
Last night that summer sun left us in a blaze of fiery red, orange and yellow glory, stretching across the western horizon like a banner. It was amazing to see the beauty of it!
I was able to capture it with my cell phone camera but the picture just doesn’t show the full depth of its intense color.
Each day is a delight
My garden is my happy place
As my grand-daughter and I sat out on my patio chatting and drinking our coffee this past Sunday afternoon a Raven stopped by for a visit. He must have been very thirsty because he wasn’t at all shy or fearful. He just flew right in so very close to us and proceeded to drink from the birdbath which was less than 12” from where we were sitting! Such a fun experience and visit! Glad we had our cell phone cameras to capture the moment. 😊
Much better to share
Scatter seeds everywhere
Fill the world with flowers
At the present time
This small corner of the world
Is filled with joy and peace
May’s big “Flower Moon”
Blooming in the eastern sky
Year’s last Supermoon
“A super moon is the result of the full moon coinciding with the moon’s closest point of orbit in relation to the Earth, which is known as perigee. The result is that the moon is not only full, but looks closer to us and brighter than usual. On average, a super moon is seven percent bigger and 15 percent brighter than a full moon.
The May Super Flower Moon is the last super moon this year.”
