Shattered


shards of glass
shattered in the sky

falling
piercing
bleeding

broken families

Postcards from the Moon


the moon smiles
to those who live beneath her nightly glow

knowing little about what transpires 
in the heavens above

a well-kept secret
she whispers only to the stars

leaving us in the dark
but for a glimpse of moonbeams

postcards with no return address

I took this picture tonight with my phone and had fun creating digital art to make it look like a postcard. This inspired the title of the poem first and then the verses just flowed. Isn't the moon mysterious, so good at keeping secrets! Enjoy and have a nice weekend! xx

Autumn Light


scintillating Autumn light 
a tapestry of leaves
turning golden

lonely hearts
not afraid to love again
no matter how hard they have fallen


Dear friends, I love Autumn light the way it shines through leaves, it's magical. I took these pictures when the sun was setting, casting a warm glow on the trees. This scenery inspired a very short poem--perhaps I'm at a loss of words in the sight of such beauty! xx

A Taste of Fall


This is what Fall looks like so far in my neck of the woods. My husband and I went to a pumpkin patch and picked up our first pumpkin of the season, which is on our front stoop.


Yellow mums and orange daisies are some of my favorite Fall flowers. I planted them in a terracotta container. I love these bright and cheerful Fall colors ~ they make me smile.


It's been raining for the past few days and lots of leaves have been falling. I like the color and shape of these leaves against the textured concrete on my front stoop.


Acorns have also been falling from oak trees in our yard. I'm going to gather some of the acorns and put them in a basket to make a pretty Fall decoration for our dining room table.


The woods in our back yard are covered with leaves, but there is still some green in the landscape. I look forward to watching the leaves turn even more colorful as we reach Autumn's peak. I hope you enjoy these photographs and have a great weekend! xx
