come spring




yellow smiles
scatter
the landscape

::

birds
singing their 
morning songs

::

rays of sun
warming deep 
within

::

telling us
spring
has arrived


~ may your day be focused and framed with sunshine ~

after the rain



when... 
air is fresh
and
silence abounds

::

when...
bird baths are filled
and 
grass seems greener

::

when...
ground is soggy
and
gardens droop

::

when...
rays of sun try reaching through clouds

::

that's when...
drops 
of rain
hold on
and 
offer up
reflection



~ may your day be focused and framed with reflection ~

those eyes



peeking out
behind the rocks

where he knows he should not be

those eyes
say it all

"she caught me"


~ may your day be focused and framed with adventure ~

a snail's pace



 inching . inching . inching

along

taking in
every tiny
detail
it
passes

::

in today's
never ending
rush

nature 
reminds us
in various ways to

s l o w   d o w n

and
take note
of the
smaller things


~ may your day be focused and framed with patience and observation ~

let the river run



a rhythmic motion

::

reach forward

pull back

reach forward

pull back

::

d  r  i  f  t 

::

trickling water
falls 
from the oars

birds 
hover high

puffy clouds 
drift by

fresh air
fills the senses

sun
soothes the soul

::

... back

forth ...

... back

forth... 

::

d  r  i  f  t

::

let the river run



~ may your day be focused and framed with tranquility ~

renewal



the flower that wilted is gone
petals once fallen are fallen forever

flowers do not return in the spring
rather, they are replaced




it is this difference between returned and replaced
that the price of renewal is paid

and as it is for flowers
so it is for us

Daniel Abraham
"The Price of Spring"


~ may your day be focused and framed with a sense of renewal ~

shake it off....

I stay up too late
got nothing on my brain


I never miss a beat
I'm lighting up my feet

I'm dancing on my own
I make the moves as I go


but I keep cruising
can't stop
won't stop 
grooving


players gonna 
play play play

and haters gonna 
hate hate hate 

heartbreakers gonna 
break break break

and the fakers gonna 
fake fake fake

baby i'm just gonna
shake shake shake


shake it off
shake it off

~ may your day be focused and framed with a positive attitude ~
