FLOWERS

Flowers erase frowns and

Lift spirits.

On days when the

World seems colorless and

Everything is dreary, flowers

Remind us to

Stop, smile, and seek beauty everywhere

Majestic Mount Hood

Mount Hood in Oregon
Mount Hood image from Wikipedia

Snow capped giant

Rises before me, I gaze

In awestruck wonder

Once more, Mount Hood, the sight of you has taken my breath away. Though miles away from me you loom in front of me like a blockade. Clouds hover above your snow capped peak. I gasp. You are intimidating, yet so beautiful.

I remember when I visited you and stood at your base, smelled your mountain air, and trembled at your majesty.

None other I have seen strike me with awe like you do giant rock.

Veggies vs Fruit

Fresh farm vegetables and fruit at the Market

Yesterday’s market

Abundance of fruit

All my favorites

Lavishly displayed

Berries red and blue

Cherries gleaming gold

Sugar kissed peaches

Fruitful paradise

Yet, vegetables

Were speaking to me

Not in audible

Like in Veggie Tales

But with visual

Attraction and scent

Vegetables spoke

Of their beauty

Fruit lover listened

A List Of Things

Clipboard with list

Things

Things lost

Things broken

Things we’ve found

Things of beauty

Things chosen in haste

Things we’ll treasure forever

Things we let go to slip away

Things broken by their use or misuse

Things left behind, forgotten, unwanted

Things dreamed about yet never received

Things dreamed about that we’ve achieved

Things we never wanted but got

Things that rose up like weeds

Things we kept to appease others

Things we threw away

Things we’ve loved

Things we miss

Things lost

Things
