Serenity

Picture of sun streaming through trees and Quote by Lao Tzu
http://quotes.land/nature-doesnt-hurry/

Sitting here on my couch

Gazing out my window

Things quiet and serene

Sunshine steaming down

Upon the daffodils

Birds happily feasting

As squirrel scurries by

Nature seems content

Not a worry nor care

Oh that we were there

Syllabic Verse

“Nature doesn’t hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” – Lao Tzu

This quote was on the tag of my favorite herbal tea bag. Ah, yes, that mankind could model nature…

Delightful Day

Daffodils

First day of Spring

Sun is shining bright

Daffodils

Sashaying

To the music of songbirds

In the gentle breeze

Shadorma

Blessings to all my family, friends and followers!

I hope you are all are experiencing a delightful First Day of Spring wherever you are at this time.

I do pray for those in quarantine and lockdown that they can still look outside and see the beauty of nature and for those who are shut in with illnesses at this time I pray for your speedy recovery as well.

Spring Sights, Sounds and Smells

Yellow Daffodil

Green shoots popping up,

Patches of yellow abound,

Spring has come again!

Haiku

I felt like Chicken Little today as everywhere I went I kept saying “ Spring is here! Spring is here!”

It may not say Spring yet on the calendar but it was very present all around my area today.

I was seeing patches of yellow daffodils in my neighbors yards and green shoots of more to come soon, hearing birds singing and lawnmowers humming, smelling fresh cut grass and enjoying the bright sunshine! What a delightful change from the damp, dark, cold days of winter!

Yes, Spring weather is here and I am enjoying every moment of it!

Be a Sunflower

Seeking better days,

With some sunshine in life? 

Looking for the light?

Are you standing in the sun

Or sitting in the shadows?

If you want light to come into your life, you need to stand where it is shining.” —Guy Finley

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.” —Helen Keller
