On the Beach of My Imagination

Here I am, alone I hide from my own shadow I dance, I play – I am alive And I bask in the glow of setting sun Sand pushed between my toes And I can’t help but wonder How many How many And could I possibly count them all And the beauty of the moment…

Daily Post Photography Challenge: Spring Awakening

Spring is a time of awakening not only, does the earth come to life but its creatures return to beautify the scene. The wind whispers with intent – as pollen fills the swollen blue skies of longing and the sun’s rays shine down upon the growing buds the branches dangling heavily, pregnant with promise. I…

Photography: Spring Has Found Her Song (Post #2)

Spring has been trying to arrive for some time now, but winter keeps trying to hold its grasp.  While everyone has been enjoying spring break this week (we had ours last week) it has seriously snowed three times.  Most remnants of the snow are gone now and today I celebrate the little wisps of clouds…

Beauty Lingers, a poem

  My dear friend, Nadia, requested that I write for this image.  She knows I find stories there, hidden in the spaces between images, sometimes in the shadows and other times in a ray of light.  If you open your eyes widely, perhaps you will see it too…   Beauty Lingers I had lost my…

My Full-Throated Song, a poem

A dear friend of mine has been encouraging me to write more for some of my photography.  I thought I’d see what I could make of it.  I hope you enjoy 🙂   Have you ever heard the full-throated song that escapes my chest? Have you ever lingered, found yourself lost in the enticing scent…

Photography: Take a Walk With Me (Post #1)

Spring is seemingly here.  I smell it in the air.  I see it in the buds growing on the trees and the flowers beneath the rustle of last year’s leaves upon the ground.  In some places, she may have already reared her head completely, but not on the Colorado prairie.  In the past week, it…

Portraits Poetry Series #75: Reflections

In case you haven’t been here before, I love writing prompts – whether a list of words, one word, or even an image. With these posts, I have written poems specifically about paintings and I hope, with my words, you see the scene just as visibly in your heart and mind as if you had…

Photography: Spring Has Found Her Song (Post #1)

Spring is finally here.  Of course, that does not mean we will have no more snow.  It always finds a way to creep in as late as April and sometimes May.  In between, however, spring has found her song.  I cannot say how thrilled I am by this… seeing as spring is my favorite season. …

Reawakened by Her Breaths, a poem

  I ache for the lengthening stretch of sunlight the lessening blow of winds the quieter moments filled with – the song of birds the flutter of butterflies the lean of tall grasses the warmth of sun. I want to trace the slow moving passage of sunlight across the varied shades of green the way…

My Heart is Ready, a poem

I rarely repost old poems or posts.  It’s not that I don’t cherish them… I do, but it is more that new material is always coming to life.  This one, just speaks to me and when I saw that the word of the day at The Daily Post Prompt was meander, I could not help…

Photography: California in Winter (Post #6)

I’ve been a bit busier lately, thank goodness for summer coming soon 🙂  Then, I’ll be able to return to normal life, if just for a little while.  Just an update:   I’m still training my little superhero.  He’s been super busy trying to catch me in the act of emailing him.  He’s done pretty…

Dancing in the Rain (Portrait Poetry Series #31)

Today, the Daily Post Prompt is messy. I could not help but remember this poem I posted quite some time ago.  It holds a special place in my heart – autobiographical, then not.     We are dancing in the rain It matters not, that we’ll get wet – life is meant to be messy…
