Today has been so beautiful that I have decided to show you my celebration of spring. I thank mother earth for this wonderful display.
Cee has also inspired me with her fun photo challenge this week, appropriately named flowers. I hope you all feel as uplifted as I do by these beautiful plants.
Smiles through bonnet,
Seated playing her Lyre,
Sweetly lilting a sonnet.
Swaying in glittering rays,
Sing songs of praise.
The hazy day’s
The Queen mother was brought up in this beautiful, quiet, secluded home in Hertfordshire. I love the Magnolia flowers growing around the door giving it a homely feel even if the doorway is grand. Have you noticed that the door is slightly ajar? Welcoming.
Spring sun melts
Any mental anguish felt.
Energise the ‘seers’
Nature’s sleepy tones,
Groan from aged
Hooded nymphs glimpse
Into the lives of meek
I was with my friend and two dogs in Knebworth country park on a beautiful spring evening. We walked through the churchyard where she introduced me to her ancestors sleeping peacefully.The birds were chirping softly and the aroma of bluebells was quite entrancing. As the dogs played, we watched the sun melt at the end of a perfect evening, melting thoughts and worries of the day.
I posted this on The legion of door whores site. One beautiful day I came across this beautiful tranquil house, a retreat and home of ‘Barefoot Therapies’. I loved the blue door, the Buddha and the wind chimes lulling me into that peaceful place.
This week’s writing prompt from Club Introvert is ‘focus’.
Edward de Bono’s quote was a great source of inspiration.
“Focusing on things that are normally taken for granted is a powerful source of creativity”.
In these seed heads I noticed their form, texture and patterning. In the landscape they add structure. They are last summer’s flowers, autumn and winter food for our birds. Even where there is now an abundance of spring colour and seed heads can be unnoticeable, we can focus on their understated beauty and usefulness.
Like twinkling stars
Of our ancestors.
Violets’ sweet flavour.
Savour the serenity
