Here I share these gems From A right through to L; Oh how wondrous is nature Each jewel a magic spell.
To draw from her strength To embrace her true spirit Life's nectar golden. x Oh come hold my hand Nature's mature paradise Calling from her heart.
Moments to treasure Life's canvas a magic spell Enchanted jewels.
In treasures restful All precious jewels sparkle Flowing to my heart. Each gem so precious Bright day dreams exquisite Embracing nature.
Each flower so precious; more than just weeds; my heart they do warm; my soul they do feed.
To immerse your being Is to savour each wonder Images embossed. Great courage is blessed Each new hope your sustenance Belief your haven.
Each careful footstep brushing against the dusty ground. Inching forward breath slightly rasping at the silhouette of her sinful secret but how could a sin feel so right??
Share those Springtime buds A fresh new start entices Life's story unfolds.
Light footsteps that infantile aura carries life's beauty to heights unknown enticing enthralling an air of mystique to The Land Of Make Believe.
Springtime a time of new beginnings; each new bud forming ; each new brook's birth as it gushes into the world and a time to immerse ourselves in the golden promises of each brand new dawn.
Remember that even though our outlook on life at times is somewhat bleak as one door closes another certainly opens.
Well it has certainly been a while since I last invited you for a cuppa and a chat ; far too long to be honest!!
Thoughts within a mind's torrential thrashings further pained by salty sprays; a mind cries a heart embraces.
A touch of velvet caressing those innocent fingertips; a mind unsure within a heart so clear.............................
In the fountain of solace the makings of a brand new dawn where dewdrops of healing proportions beckon to me. I slowly unfold and immerse my heart into a soothing balm.
I sit in silent contemplation; free searching thoughts from within. I see with my mind's fresh eyes a scene so homely; a haven which we all crave.
Gather thoughts Gather wisdom Gather sunshine A seed is planted!! Mix in a good measure of sunshine I sit at home mixing my essence of life.
A sunny day not a cloud in sight. summer’s magic so clearly drawn. My spirit is undecided even though the warmth of the sun conveys delicious vibes.
Well hello once again and believe it or not it is a sunny morning here in usually rainy Wales. The skies are blue; the clouds a soft white ; the grass green and many other beautiful colours are peeping through here and there.
That beam of light so minute so slender a glimpse at the world of survivors thriving through life's strangling weeds.
My heart Now seduces Each tone from Nature's breeze When each tender love song now shares As she flows up to the heavens so high.
Once I did rather scornfully think that it was not possible to make friends on line. However I was so wrong ;I have made some wonderful and sincere friends whom I will appreciate forevermore.
Today's hub is a collection of poems which I have composed over the past few days.
In the midst of our rainy and wet weather there are always bright gems to brighten our days .Today I share them with you.
I love to sit down and listen Sit by me to witness And to listen Come on.
Good morning one and all I hope you enjoy today's visit and that sunny days and magical nights will continue to enchant you.
Whenever your days are dull and grey almost listless follow me hold my hand ; together we'll walk on that path of life with its blossomed trail !!!
Today I sit in sweet contemplation at all the treasures there have been and always will be in my life.
Today's weather is bleak but try and look beyond this dismal veil because I promise you the colours and beauty are still there.
piZap/eddy To love The greatest gift From Mother Nature's Heart I find myself radiating The wonderful sweet song she sang for me I absorb her magical tones To dance with each lit star Innocent lives To love. Why are the lambs...
A lonely maiden's cry where was each flower grown not strangled by life's weeds; why don't they hold me why don't they care?
The first in a series of life in a Welsh village back in the 60s and 70s.
So young and in love Both young hearts beating as one Into the sunset. Colours so blending Each motion never ending Encircling forever.
So it's the end of an era Just look back and remember . How safe those happy thoughts Ours to cherish forever.
Life's playgrounds are not just for little ones oh no life has its very own playground for us adults too. Simply allow that child in you to arise and look at the word around with a different view
What do you want from life? What do you need from life? What are your deepest dreams? Can we achieve and hold our heads up high? "Of course we can!"
Together we’ll face the world This I know for sure; An eternal love as ours So cherished and so pure.
Hello one and all ;well here we are following another day in the working lives of these daft Misfits. Do you know a misfit or two?? I bet you do and I can assure you that I most definitely do !!! Enjoy.
Stagnant waters clear, salvation unfolds her wings her truth in lavish abundance to all who have followed her path right to the very peak right to the very end.
I have always felt such an affinity with Mother Nature age. As a little girl I would explore the Welsh countryside with my Beagle Lassie and here is where I learnt so much about life .
It came to me in the sweetest of dreams those curtains of sleep allow love to shine through.
Is there a hope of finding that strength so powerful , never to be extinguished?? Oh yes believe me there is, it lies deep in us all. a strength so tender yet so true.
The second instalment in this humorous series following the working days of the hapless Misfits.
A time of contemplation ;a time for rejoicing and a time to find those dreams.
A fictional fest of nonsense never did anyone any harm. Enjoy the antics of this fictional delivery firm to those of you who are young at heart or those of you who would like to be.
Where does our incentive to write come from??Today's incentive which lead me to compose this hub came by in a very strange way!! It originated from a remark on the radio about an hour ago:-
I made a promise last Saturday that the next visit would be very soon and so it is !!! Right do you all have your hot drinks and out we go into my sweet haven.
Each 'Come Sit By Me A While' which I share with you all take place in my haven ;our paved patio where we grow all sorts of flowers, shrubs, fruit and vegetables.
From each sweet vision Some great lessons I have learnt How I do treasure.
To dream to flow into a world so wondrous allowing gems to flow.
A love oh so rare Oh so preciously and treasured Moonlight's serenade.
Beautiful memories which I will always treasure and share with the world. Enjoy the sweet beauty in life which is all around you.
Another Beautiful Sunday. I bet you're all thinking 'Gosh how come every Sunday in Wales is nice??! Just remember I do have a good imagination! Today we visit the National Welsh Botanic Gardens .
Darkness and tears prevail !!! A journey so bleak!!! Where are golden moments golden days?
Stars of a moonlit night paved our hearts; a nightingale's song bewitch.
oblivious to the sounds of cries of pain; the pains dripping, overflowing with the ugliness and consuming grief of war.
Sunday morning dawned bright and early and we were soon on our way. The sun was beaming down on us which added to the excitement!! Away this time across the border to England.
To laugh together to understand to love to care to share to wonder together.
It has been a while since my last Come Sit By Me hub in this series .However here we are once again and please join me with a nice warm cuppa and home made cake and biscuits.
A story of a young boy's lesson in life which stayed with him forevermore.
Our journey there flowing through the beautiful Welsh countryside.
A step back in time never to be forgotten ; come share my adventure.
In the silken moonlight a heart so full to serenade her beau her all.
Whispers rustling; new buds are born ; Initial tentative glimpses; A tender birth that delicate newly born foliage to moisten to care love's magical dew ;great strength hidden sweet moments .
A heart pounding like thundering hooves a sleekness so cherished bated breath caressed.
Those Heather filled moors Conjure whispers in the wind Such desolate fears.
A balance in life is what we need To appreciate beauty from deep within......................
Todays hub brings out that child who lives within us all !!! Do you believe in fairies? I do !!!
Good day one and all ;today's hub is about admitting that you took a wrong path and that it is also possible to get back onto that right track once again. To reach out is to share and to care.
This is a relatively new hobby of mine. While writing on here I found a passion for photography and used my photos to accompany my hubs. This then branched out into creating collages.
A spirit so free no dark revelations hiding round corners of pretence. A free spirit
Many years ago I played the piano and also managed to pass four exams. Today I have to admit that I haven't played the piano since I was about eleven years , but it has never left me.
Many questions could arise on the subject of new eras. "How do we know?" "How often do they occur?"
Rich in spiritual grace Flowing freely from each heart The sweetest nectar
Share your sweet love song a heartfelt warmth glows from deep within, caressing the tune like soft velvet petals
If any of you would like to adopt a pet or rather a new family member then please do go ahead as you will be repaid a million times over.
True love is a gift to be cherished and tenderly protected.
These are the seasons that warm my heart All their magical powers play their part.
These steps so bewitching; so uncanny each memory eternally to thrive; a beauty never to fade.
Such memories; such richness ;to fill each with heart with a pride so rare. A pride cocooned by the wonders of our treasured Wales.
Days of wonder; embrace the enchanted and caress your dreams.
My heart as full as can be!! Locked in the memories of my mind All those wonders I did see.
Up up and away we go to the land of great happiness and true beauty.
Sunny Smiles and laughter can warm even the coldest of days.
To taste the magic of a forest of a woodland so green so knowing so true.
What gift in the world is sweeter and more precious than the birth of a sweet baby. To cuddle, to caress, to love ;that warm baby scent fills my heart and my days I appreciate over and over again.
Wearily she'll flow along; into estuaries she'll divide; these are the rivers of life; which one ours to decide. Walk with hope and faith in your heart.
Back to the days of father and son working down the mines as daytime was hardly waking Those slithers of light pierced through the dark black canvas of the sky!!!
Treasure your todays and your tomorrows will shine brightly.
A love story of caring and sharing. A love story of wonder and beauty. Appreciate the beauty and each instinct so dear and your path will then become so clear.
Oh how I love nature wherever I am ;each haven as bewitching as the last. To share with others doubles my joy hence today's hub. I shared my love of nature with my children and now my grandchildren.
One quote I have always loved is "Today is the first day of the rest of my life." We can repeat this quote as often as we want and remember: 'To share is to care'. Have a great day to one and all.
Oh yes the week ahead is going to be full of fun and adventure which is why I am kicking it off with this fun hub.
In order to truly appreciate each happy day there has to be a balance of dark ones also. Learn from the tears of yesterday and the brighter your tomorrows will be.
Our daily news is full of the cruelty of wars and the seemingly escalating crime that surrounds us. While we cannot escape from such bulletins it is important that we remember the beauty in life.
A chirpy tale complete with sunshine filled pics. I love yellow as it fills my heart and home with love ,laughter and joy. I love the blossoms we grow and here I am able to share each of these gems.
Take a few moments now and again to gather your thoughts in honest contemplation. Allow yourself the luxury to sum up the good things in your life and you could be pleasantly surprised.
Today as I sat with my early morning cuppa looking at the dismal rain outside I looked that little bit harder and what did I see? Of course I saw a beautiful rainbow.
One bright new morn I take myself a-walking So clear the horizon My heartbeat a-singing.
Sweet horse trotting Emphasising happy hearts In sweet abandon
Spluttering and gurgling from deep within that flowing initially so hesitant until it resembles birth so new shimmering and now so meek
On white horses let me fly away !!
A haven of peace and love; a conjuring of soft colours a myriad of shapes adorning each wall colours of sweet and eternal happiness.
I am waiting for the new Fundraiser from Ty hafan to visit ;this is our only children's hospice here in Wales and with whom I have set up a fund in Erin's name called :-'Erin Jones Friend Of Ty hafan'
A moment of sweet abundance is all it takes to get those creative juices flowing. Nestled deep in our Welsh beauty it is not difficult to achieve this and how I appreciate this special gift from life.
There are so many unwanted animals in the world wherever we live ; we decided to offer a home to two beautiful cats !!Tabatha plus her little kitten Megan; how they have enriched our lives.
Life can be so hard at times and the beauty seems so far away but remember that it is there ;you just have to look a little harder. Today I take you on a journey to my very own haven of peace.
To feel life's journey ebbing and flowing is a treasure trove of wonder !!Stop by to feel the ripples of tomorrow fill your being. Allow the salt air to cleanse and heal.

Cascading wonders Such sweet everlasting bliss So tender a love.
Immersed in love blessed with strength a gift forever.
Much as I love to write about the beauty of the world every now and again the dark side of man will raise its head and of course this side of life cannot be ignored.

That long winding road Simply flowing so freely Belief and hope glow
Sunshine's enchantment Wondrous gems of golden charms Magical moments.
Another quaint Welsh gem lies in the beauty of a sea fairing haven called St. Dogmaels;only three miles from where we live.
A world sailing by Riverside charms a-glistening Olde wolrde dreams.

What a precious haven we found.
Today's heartaches may be tomorrows blossoms. (A quote by myself)
Embrace the joys in life and they in turn will embrace you. Find the beauty in your world; share your days and inspire others. A world which needs warmth and beauty.
Allow your heart to sing and your soul to share.
