The Poetry In A Vase


Ageless 


Your white petals
curve like hands
around orange glass
releasing memories
of natural light -
we were grounded
underneath an ageless sky.
Life cut you free.

I am honored  to know my photograph inspired this beautiful poem by Ben Ditmars. You can read more of his work here and find his books on Amazon.

#365grateful January 16 - 21, 2014


I am grateful I no longer have to wear this.


I am grateful for a beautiful Friday afternoon


I am grateful to be part of the Imaginary Garden With Real Toads
where I am inspired by incredibly talented writers.


I am grateful for the beauty of a pansy and how 
it sparks memories of my mother-in-law who loved the flower


I am grateful for a chance meeting in Memphis
turning into a treasured friendship.


I am grateful for my eclectic collection
of music and talented friends who are part of it.

Yellow Pansies



Yellow pansies bloom among death…
their delicate strength bright hope
to a troubled spirit navigating
through a season inundated with gray.

 I am grateful to have my mother's pin.
 I still feel the magic when holding it that I felt as a child.

Kitchen Art

I never thought of the art in a wine opener until I looked at it through my camera lens. It is amazing how my viewpoint changes behind the camera.

#365grateful ~ January 2, 2014

This year I am going to participate in 365grateful. It is a photo project where each day I will snap a picture of something that stirs my gratitude.



(I had to play catch up today so I am sharing two photos.)


I'm grateful for this little journal. It goes with me every time I leave the house.




















I'm grateful for this little stove that reminds me of childhood, sisters and imagination.
