Ever Wonder?…..

Rock structure
Rock Structure I saw in a neighborhood yard while on my walk

What if

The rocks could talk?

What stories could they tell,

Of where they’ve been and whom

They saw.

Where Am I?

Abstract art

Sometimes wonder

Where I do reside.

Living life daily

In different worlds,

Virtual and real.

Social Media,

News, Televison,

Websites,and books.

Asleep and awake,

I am a sojourner.

Joy and Wonder

“Raining Color” an Original oil slick photo enhanced by Leona J Atkinson 2020

I grew up in a black and white world

But then I found color, beautiful

Color of all kinds, hues, and shades,

And my world has never been

The same since, for

Now I see light prisms

Everywhere,

And find joy

And wonder

Daily.

Finding Joy in the Journey

Art Journal page “Joy” by Leona J.Atkinson 2020

Searching,

Finding the joy,

Unexpected delight, and

The wonder, in everything

I smile

And give

Thanks, treasuring

The memories that bring

Joy and hope when a dark day comes

In sight

Double Cinquain

Find joy in the journey” —Anonymous

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.

Arrayed Like a Lily

Golden Calla Lily plant in bloom

Wonder not,

Nor worry today,

Nor even

Tomorrow.

If Overmorrow arrives,

Give thanks to God

Shadorma

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Matthew 6:34

(Inspired by “The Word of the Day” on Dictionary.com which is “Overmorrow”)
