moving on

there is a chill
in the air
as summer ends
like lost love
in September

fading memories
of warm embraces
and kisses
in the morning

where have the colors gone?

in black and white
sunrays are still
piercing through
glass hearts
illuminating the soulful

yearning for closure

and closeness again
in a new season
the streets are wide open
step by step
letting go of shadows

moving on

I had fun taking a couple of photos in New York City in black and white. Though it was a bit cold, it was sunny enough that some interesting shadow patterns were cast on the streets. People are always on the go in such a fast-paced city and I tried to capture the movement. This gave me an idea for a poem about moving on.

Sunflowers in the Sky

let me make you a blanket of hope
the color of sunflowers in a summer field
as warm as sunshine, as soft as grass

every stitch labored with gentle hands
to hug you on a cold winter day
to lift you up, envelop you in love

keep it close to your heart
to carry you forth into your dreams
awakening to a better tomorrow

My dear friends, I hope you're enjoying the last few weeks of summer. On a weekend drive, I came across this beautiful field of sunflowers. Of course, I had to stop and take pictures! The sunflowers were so tall they looked like they could touch the sky.

I've been busy making blankets for charity for orphaned children. Here is a close-up picture of my crochet work in progress. The sunflower field inspired the colors ~ yellow and orange as petals and sunshine, green as grass, blue as the sky ~ I hope it will bring them comfort and warmth. My poem was inspired by it all.

Have a wonderful weekend! xx
