Secret Silence

The flower offered of itself
And eloquently spoke
Of Gods
In languages of rainbows
Perfumes
And secret silence...

On The Rainbow

Sometimes it's important to work for that pot of gold.  
But other times it's essential to take time off 
and to make sure that your most important decision in the day 
simply consists of choosing which color to slide down on the rainbow.

Amidst The Locks Of A Beauty

The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August,
 and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself
 like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty who has seen one season too many.

The More People

Well, I have a dream too, but it’s about singing and dancing and making people happy. 
It’s the kind of dream that gets better the more people you share it with. 
And I found a whole group of friends who have the same dream, 
and that makes us sort of like a family.

The Natural Way

If organic farming is the natural way, 
shouldn't organic produce just be called "produce" 
and make the pesticide-laden stuff take the burden of an adjective?

Loving Home

Every other day I look at Becca's pictures to see which one I want to use for the blog that day.
Over and over, I am awestruck at how incredible this place we call home is.
I love it here for the rain, the mountain, and the stunning beauty.
I love it for the lush green grass, the moss on the trees, and the fiery colors of fall.
I love our home.

By all these lovely tokens
September days are here
With summer's best of weather
And autumn's best of cheer.
