A beautiful offering

Like wrapping paper and ribbons

Honor lie inside it

Don’t hold back with the process

Let them go in the awareness that

They were never ours.

The gift

The offering

The giving away

Make up the joyful experience

Of giving offerings to the world.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

Leaving seasons of daylight

trees will shed their leaves

as autumnal cycle of change.

There is an endless stream of positive opportunities,

Be encouraged

Be hopeful

Thought patterns of dreams

are chances of reality.

SILHOUETTE. The proper definition of a silhouette is “the outline of a body viewed as circumscribing a mass.” In photography, often we achieve that effect by putting light behind the object whose silhouette we want to capture, effectively darkening out the features of the subject instead of highlighting them.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy

Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy

Happy is joy

like seeing through your eyes

like children frolicking in the waves

like sharing

and other cute things

like ice cream

and if you are lucky

nature’s surprise …

like flowers untouched

like a gentle deer,

a sublime sunrise.

You watch, you listen

then you remember, as someone said

“Life is too short to write about happy things.”

Here is the essence of my heart

Deep in the sacred perfume of poetry

I have a melody for you

of verses only you can hear

secret promises of forevermore.

Mine. Is there a place, object, or view that’s entirely yours, or you’re a bit selfish or possessive about? Is it a feeling you feel when you look at the photo, or perhaps an unwillingness to share? Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Weekly Photo Challenge “Free Spirit”

Listen to the Trees

When you feel like giving up

Remember why you held on for so long.

Embrace the open skies.

And free your spirit.

Listen with your mind.

The evergreen will circle a heart whisper

when you walk down your path.

Listen closely, the trees will tell you about

life adventures and their stories.
