Oh yes another visit so very soon and I am so pleased to welcome you all. How I love to share my days ; my thoughts (happy or sad) with you all.

I think that ever since I was a little girl if any story I wrote had a little bit of sadness in it it had to end on an up!!!This was ME from knee high and this has stayed with me to this very day.

As many of you know in the past couple of weeks I saw with great sadness the passing of two wonderful people in my life.

One being a young girl who behind her disabilites was a beautiful and true gem.

The other a very dear friend and the grief hung around me for days!! I felt physically shattered but as always found solace in my writing and today I find myself on a higher plateau of coping and understanding once again.

Again I have found my haven in Mother Nature's gems.

My three favourite words have also been a crutch :- Expect ;Accept and Appreciate.

Right as always help yourselves to tea,coffee and biscuits ; no cake today as we polished that off yesterday Ha ha!!

Springtime buds.

Source

Those opening buds

fill my heart

with a joy so fresh

a new era

a new day

new scents

sets new sights

so alive

so wondrous

eagerly awaiting my tomorrows

so full promises and hope......................................

To each newborn lamb.

Source

Those newborn lambs

tails a-wiggling

at times

tenacious

and

laced

with trepidation;

but wondrously and surely

those doubts dispel;

those baby-like prances

play sweet melodies to my heart;

my soul today

so full of

wonderful sights;

awaiting with

an infinite capacity

of an almost

excited mind ;

so full

so eagerly

awaiting

what is to come;

a tomorrow of new beings

and

fresh new growth to surround

and invigorate

my beautiful world......................................

Each new dawn in life.

Source

Each dawn to walk

barefooted

in Nature's

magical dew drops;

each one glistening

sharing the secrets of the beauty to follow.

Of springs magical potion

to heal each wound

to lift each fallen being

to brighten the heartbeats so dull.

To disperse the cold chambers

of doubt;

a doubt if left to flourish will

corrode each beat

will deaden each joy;

but deep true and fulfilling faith in Nature

unwinds my tangled emotions

and strengthens my resolve to share

to help......................................

That springtime brook.

Source

The springtime brook

runs

and glistens

forming a barrier

between our being

and

the coldness

the hurt

the pain

of each sadness in life;

of the loss of loved ones

the pain inflicted

like sharp stabbing darts

relentlessly

stab stab stabbing

my heart

and

soul.

The refreshing new birth

of the

springtime brook

brings

that strength

like no other

to slowly

but surely

refresh my mind

before

in sheer fulfilment

to

trickle through my being

bringing that fresh

and much awaited

promising

new era.

Beautiful memories

surface

with a strength

so new

so fresh

and

so very strong.............................

Each beautiful horizon.

Source

Beautiful horizons are now in view;

wondrous treasures

chances

and hopes.

Drink your fill

of new found paths;

to walk to test

forever in time.

Beautiful hopes

find wondrous dreams

walk your walk

a true life to begin.

Each wondrous achievements

each legacy

to follow our names for eternity.

Sunshine yellow.

Source

How sunshine yellow

Embraces and warms my heart

Happy days to come.


Beautiful heathers.

Source

Heathers will soften

To cushion each fresh footstep

Each path so wondrous.

Graceful moments.

Source

Graceful sweet moments

Eternally to treasure

Such beauty in life.

Tomorrow's blossoms.

Source

Inhale so deeply

Taste the beauty in your life

Tomorrow blossoms.

Some of my collages which I love creating.

I hope you enjoyed today's visit and will call again.

Keep your hearts and souls open to taste and feel the beauty that is always ours to explore;to be able to remember loved ones and to understand that they are always with us.

'They may be gone from our homes but never from our hearts.'

Finally I would like to leave you with this quote:-

Today's heartaches may be tomorrows blossoms.

(A quote by myself)

Eddy, when you sit in solitude drinking up Mother Nature and the dawning of Spring, you see just how wonderous life is. This morning as I was sitting on my front porch, I witnessed a hawk seamlessly pluck a dead branch from a tree across the street from me. Obviously, she's a mother building a nest. She didn't miss a bit. It was such a smooth move and amazing to watch.

Life is good!

Thanx for sharing your beautiful photos. Your Delphinium is breathtaking!

Eddy, your lovely words grace the pages when you write.

What a wonderful outlook you have on life!!

Were you born with joy in your heart? Or, did you work to develop

your appreciation of the God Spirit in nature?

You bring blessings to so many hubbers.

Thank you,

DJ

Thank you so very much DJ ;your words as always are so greatly appreciated. To reply to your question I have always had the great love of nature in my heart but kept so much well hidden for the first four decades of my life.After making life changing decisions around ten years ago my writing has come to the surface slowly but surely and today I know without a single doubt that it is my legacy to share my story and to help others.

Here's to many more for us both to share and I wish you a wonderful day.

I was up and at them, all serious and business like to go slay some dragons today. Then I read this and now I am all blissed out and serene. Hmmm. I will have to adjust when I read your great hubs.

I enjoyed your photos and poetry, as usual. The video that contained wild boar, deer, and the crossbills was also enlightening and beautiful. Time heals all wounds, and especially our nature helps us to live again through her eyes.
