She Walked In The Garden

Spring was coming

so, she walked in the garden

to find the fresh buds

smiling towards the sun.

It was a long journey for

them from the organization

of carbon to being able to

see the sun. Aideen wandered

through the perfectly planted

patches. The gardeners worked

so hard to create color for

wanderers to enjoy. Aideen

was bothered by her

father’s new business partner,

he was young, handsome,

and was to perfect to not

remember. She had other

things to do than bother

with this man’s gaze on her.

When they met, she felt his

interest in here immediately.

Why did she care, she had a

wedding to plan. She was about

to marry the most wonderful man

in town. Aideen’s thinking is stopped

by a beautiful bouquet of jasmine

being placed in front of her.

Where did someone get flowers

in full bloom? it was not yet spring. She

followed the hand holding the bouquet

to the arm coming from behind her. She

turned around to see Iain.

Victory of Spirit

The drop of clean water

enters the dry mouth

and dry sky orange

vitamin C tablet follows.

The skin has begun to give more.

It has given thousands of seconds

of energy to help feed the world.

It is not innocent

although it came into the world

thinking of innocence.

Hoping to stay that way,

but time and knowledge

and loneliness pushed it

into different realms.

The spirit is stronger

then the skin.

Knowledge has to take

care of it all now.

Every soul the spirit

learned along the way

has made a positive

impression like the sun

or a negative impression

like the dark places on

a strip of film.

It is breath now

and hope to help

the spirit win.

As long as the spirit

lives the spirit wins.

You can find the spirit

looking at the mountains,

swimming in the sea,

or listening to the forest.

The spirit looks above

the negative words,

moments, energies

looking for positive

moments of nature.

 

 

 

 

Love In Surprise

carr 300

If you ever wonder

what loves is,

I realize there

is no easy answer to this.

What I have seen

is first, when I love myself

and I love someone else

and they love themselves

and all the love comes together

and just is,

surprise becomes

every word

and decision

and I do not even know what I

am I doing

I just do it  and believe

like say,” I love you,”

despite some falling apart

around us, we just

love one another

and smile

and laugh

and fight

and cry

and care.

I don’t have

a mansion

but I feel rich

I don’t drive a shiny sports car

but I feel I have more power

than one. I am not the richest

person in the world in cash, but

for every dollar someone might

have I have millions of moments of human

connection that gives me strength to make more

money than I know what to do with.

Love has no definition only examples

and experiences for those brave

enough to let go.

 

Quiet In Nature

Natural as a Strawberry

Red like a strawberry for Christmas,

her cheeks reddened in the cold air.

Awaiting Santa Claus in the moonlight,

she knew her mom would wonder

where she was.

She stared at the sparkling stars,

and looked with hope for movement.

Ah, there was something, ah it is a plane.

The smell of pumpkin pie nudged her

before her mom yelled at her to come

 

back in. She wanted to stay out where it

 

 

was quiet. Where Santa Claus would be.

She wanted to stay with the twinkling

snow in the moonlight, where beauty

said nothing. Where no one complained

and the world was without tension.

The nature of warmth called her in

 

she obeyed so she could look for the next

 

 

natural beauty to find.

 

Natural Beauty

 

 

 

Searching For A Christmas Formula

The green Christmas tree

stands tall in living rooms.

Some may be small or white,

or with poinsettia blooms.

 

A little bit of nature inside

our houses and minds,

the lights  take flight

in our eyes, for life

with spirit is worth

living  and presents

to be. Where are you

at any present moment,

but a moment away from

the fence. A boundary from

freedom, but ready to fly

away free.

I Do It Before

The Snow and cold are coming.

Although living in a tropical zone

for twenty years, I find myself

now near the mountains for love.

The snow and cold are coming,

on Thursday. Today is Tuesday.

The temp will be 50 degrees today.

I love it. There is a coolness to the air,

at 50 degrees, but not enough to make

me shiver. I will be outside as much

as I can. So that come Thursday,

I love being indoors, and not wish

to be out when the cold freezes

the path of my nose, and may freeze

my happiness if I stay out in the

16-degree weather for long. I make

sure to go outside before the cold

gets too cold. So curling up inside

feels like home and not something

forced upon me be weather nature.

 

Thank you for reading and liking!!!

Tofu For Two

When my tummy feels weak and I am looking for protein

I cut a slice of firm tofu and eat it

like a slice of cake.

It is cold and soothing in my mouth

and the taste is good if I am hungry,

very earthy but mild.

No, it is not a steak or even cake,

but it a satisfying healthy feel.

If I am really ambitious

I squirt some sriracha

on the top of this

strange spongy food.

I have to put in a sealed

container in the fridge

and hope I do not forget tofu

is there.
