Promenade

Promenade 1200 WM

~*~

My eyes always brighten at the sight of a beautiful swan. It is grace, beauty and dignity rolled into a feathery white package that says look, but don’t touch.

We could all learn a thing or two about setting healthy and appropriate boundaries from our friend the swan.

If not this moment …

Medicine 1200 WM

Medicine Lake, Jasper National Park, Alberta

~*~

This morning I am reminded that life is fragile. That every moment is a moment into which we must pour our entire heart and believe we are more than we know.

If not this moment … when?

Thanks for visiting,

Remembering …

Remembrance II

~*~

Their blood was lost;

In battle died

While far away

Their mothers cried.

The war not theirs,

But fought they did

For noble cause

Their bodies bled.

With open heart

And focused mind

They gave their all

For humankind.

Remember them,

Forget them not,

Our precious freedom

Their lives bought.

~*~

Stream of consciousness words for a day of remembering.

Flower Power

Vibrant

Weekly Photo Challenge: Vibrant

~*~

Every living thing carries a vibration.

The higher the vibration, the more power it has to lift our spirits and provide feelings of happiness.

Flowers have such a power. We give flowers to lift the spirits of another, or to convey our affection. Their vibrant colour and fragrance (for those that have one) evoke feelings of well being and memories past.

When I consider these dahlias I recall precious moments spent in my grandmother’s fragrant garden filled with such flowers. Happy memories. Good vibrations.

Flower power.
