thoughts from my mind to yours


Dreaming of Spring

Sometimes, winter feels so long
that she forgets about spring…
Spring, and the green green grass
and the blooms of fresh flowers…
the smell of earth after rain
and songs of birds she loves hearing again and again
as the sun shines on her heart…
making art, with words
that only come with spring…
so until then she lays on fresh snow
and she dreams, in hopes of spring.

Mists of Sunrise #Writephoto

And fall said goodbye…

in the mists of sunrise,

on the first winter morning,

fading in the haze,

of forgotten meadows.

Only Yesterday…

Only yesterday,

you were collecting summer dreams…

in a fistful of sunshine

and heart full of hope,

and now you lay,

on the cool green grass

and watch them fall

in golden hues and crimson reds

like the open sky above you,

flying gently in the autumn breeze,

only yesterday…

Question to my fellow bloggers and friends: What do you like most about spring?

As we continue to dive into spring and get our fair share of rain, thunderstorms and fresh blooms…I want to ask my friends/bloggers, what is your favourite thing about the season?

I will start off…I love how the earth smells after rain and also right before rain…I love seeing the fresh green grass…I don’t always like a heavy downpour… especially if I am driving but I love sleeping to the sound of it 🙂 Alright these were just a few things…I hope to see many more of what you love in the comment section 🙂

Watching snow

fall quietly by your window

warming your heart

for the holidays…

smiling from deep inside as I address each greeting card and knowing that it really isn’t that hard to make someone else smile from deep inside with the bit of cheer I can provide!

On the stove’s a singing pot
To relieve the biting cold
I’ll make the tea piping hot
A taste of India, so bold
Brings back memories I forgot
And stories long since told
Of holidays that mean a lot
To all, both young and old

end of year
so many new memories
weaving patterns with the old
not a hint of snow
climate warms
future challenges

Temperatures fall
This pic
Grabbed my eye ball

If snowflakes were glitter
a festivus season to remember
with ever six degrees of connection
warm smiles and happiness is an infection.

“Keep Christmas your way–

Let me keep mine!”

Scrooge’s habit, bitter denial.


My hope is that

We all keep Christmas

In our signature styles–

Savor, cherish meaning awhile.


Not held for mere

Day, within our hearts;

Treasure Babe-King’s love always–

Never let it depart.

In wonder I stand
My face turned towards the skies
As the flakes touch down gently upon my face
Melting and mixing with tears of joy
Knowing you will be home again soon.
I smile at the memories
Soon to be made
Of another perfect holiday
Spent with you.

after the harvest
comes the season
of reflection

a celebration
of the gifts we
have received

throughout the year
but have often
been too busy

during summer’s
longer days
to open

to gratefully
and to savor

初雪(はつゆき First Snow – haiku

midnight: snow flowers
spiral down and quickly die
on my outstretched hand.

I hold this moment

of peace,

holding a little space

only for you

here, in my deepest heart –

holding ever so lightly,

as the gentle prayers

you whisper

and allow to drift to me

from this place.

Enchanted colours mesmerize

And you forget to analyze

As your heart falls in love

through your eyes

with autumn’s beauty.

The things that grow, must also pass,
As cycles wander endlessly through
Time, as changes and transformations
Mark the maturation, signal
The ripening of humanity and nature, of
Humanity in nature. Fall is not the beginning of death,
It is
The arrival of new
