Children’s voices call out, they choose teams, set rules, begin play. Happy sounds. We watch them run, pass by on scooters, some on bikes while I water the garden with one eye on the sky.
Gentle colors grace my view color bathes my living room drawing me outdoors. The vivid shades of red and orange join together to create Mother Nature’s latest painting
Rain pounded tap, tap, tapping on the windows drops bouncing on puddles only to disappear Trees heavy with water the delicious scent of juniper and pine grass squeaky under my feet But my eyes are drawn skyward vibrant colors paint the sky
As the light of day retreats and the hour ticks towards nine beauty floods the sky. It wraps around clouds filtering through, creating new colors, an ever changing evening show
Imperceptibly days grew longer, stretch stretching towards summer solstice
Lingering Taking in the beauty Enjoying morning sun Dancing on the blooms The swallowtail at work Not knowing, not caring That we are watching.
Strawberry full moon Playing hide-and-seek with me I won tonight’s game
Yellow flowers grow faces looking to the sky reflecting sunshine
Wildflowers popping up along the hiking trails signs of spring and life goes on
