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 its reflection


across the rippling waters

at the pond.

I want to break free

like the small sprout

learning toward the sun

breaking away

the last vestiges of earth

and leaning toward the warmth.

I want to find myself,

in Spring, reawakened

by her breaths.

      Thank you very much Robbie. We were able to get out to the gardens and I enjoyed that so very much. Break is over, but I am finally finding my stride again 🙂


  3. So beautiful, Sumyanna!

      Thank you so very much Phyllis!


      1. All your photos are beautiful. Really, I enjoy them so much.


        1. Sumyanna says:

          So incredibly glad to hear that. Thank you!


          1. You are quite remarkable. There is a human element to them, always, draws you in, it’s personal, not just someone clicking a camera for the sake of it. a memento if you will.


          2. Sumyanna says:

            Yeah, I don’t exactly know why… but I feel they are models, waiting to be noticed. If I get a picture that shows her true beauty, I feel that I have captured something worthwhile. I actually remember the many specific trips to the gardens and the photos I took. It is rather personal.


          3. It comes across as personal and therefore very special that you are willing to share them. I love them so much. I don’t get out much and I used to love gardens. The ultimate favourite for me hehe


          4. Sumyanna says:

            Well, that makes it all the more special then 🙂 We already have noted the weather this week and hope to go out to the gardens later in the week. See, we are planning! I will miss the flexibility when school starts. There’s so much to do. Right now, I need to be looking into scholarships and colleges… I never seem to run out of things to do 🙂


          5. I know, right? Seems there’s never enough hours in a day for all we have and need to do

            Seriously… never!

          7. The northern tip of the island has the same sunlight hours as Alaska. It gets dark around 4 30 and your driving home in the dark and getting up in the dark. Because it was cloudy and rainy, it was gray a lot of the time so you really appreciated the sun when it came out to play. I love it here, the sun comes out to play way more often and the humidity isn’t as high either.

            I was not aware there was land like that up in Canada. I guess I need to start learning a few things! I know we complain when it is hot, but I have to admit that I would rather have it hot than be without the sun. Gloomy days are not my cup of tea 😉


          9. After 30 years I got used to it, roflmao. But I’m so happy to have seasons again!!!!!!!!!!!!! wooot
