A Sentiment

God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

Sunlit Sunday



I'm joining My Little Home and Garden for Sunlit Sunday. http://mylittlehomeandgarden.blogspot.com/2014/01/sunlit-sunday-week-4.html





January Shadows by Balisha

As I look out my garden window... and see the woods in back..
I see a landscape without color...one of white and black.
The sun comes out for minutes... the landscape starts to glow..
The woods takes on a sparkle.. with shadows in the snow.
The wreath of wire casts a shadow... in the snow upon the ground..
The colors that I missed before.. are everywhere.. I've found.
Umbers, siennas and some grays  before my very eyes..
I thought that colors were all gone...what a nice surprise.
To see them glowing in the sun... is a pleasure now for me..
The winter landscape beautiful...is one I long to see.

Balisha, I enjoyed reading the poem inspired by your photo.

"The colors that I missed before.. are everywhere.. I've found."

Often, it's just a matter of paying attention and we can find the colours or beauty of life. Sunshine can help!

I'm glad you came back to Sunlit Sunday this week.

i really enjoyed your poem. We all need to snatch as much sun as we can during the winter months.
I'm popping over from Sunlit Sunday.

It's so true - sunlight in winter makes all the difference. It's a gorgeous landscape - you just have to dress for it! Happy Sunday!

It has been so cold this january I am ready for spring. I scrolled down your blog a bit and noticed your fondness for English breakfast tea and primroses. I am drinking that tea now, mine is caffeinated, and sitting on the table is a pot of purple primrose that I picked up at the market not that long ago.

Enjoying your poem as it is so well suited for where I am visiting with my daughter these week's. I look out. The dinning room window at the woods outback and think of a warmer day when we can collect the fallen trees to warm us at night. Thank you
