Summer Dreams


 Bringing people together under sunny blue skies
with umbrella’s full of color
shading more then their eyes…
 Resized 6




 Afternoon rains where the sun can still shine
your pole in the water as you drink some fine wine…
Resized 1




 A mirages in the distance like a ghost
Yet you choose to focus on what is close…
Resized 2




 Gliding along on water so still
catching fish, oh what a thrill…
Resized 3




Wildflowers that shed tears after a summer rain
Happy are they for the moisture that came…
Wildflower Tears




 Campfires that warm and burn bright
flickering against the darkest of night…

Resized 4




  Flowers and Gardens filled with colors and blooms
the eye beholds that beauty which looms…
Resized 5




Put it all together with only a few seams
creating a collage filled with summer dreams…
 Summer Dreams



May all you summer dreams come true….

Good Morning… Good Afternoon… Good Night…

What ever it is to you…

Lilies and Life


As we bob thru life, ripples of our surrounding effect our every being…



We try to remain rooted to that which holds us steadfast and secure.


Sometimes we just float free watching life pass by us.. 


Suddenly we glimpse something that draws us back.


We examine closely and soon feel that which caused us to pause..


We become the light of our creator


We Smile…


As the sparkles reflect off us onto others


       Who may now pause to become a part of a life thought to only drift.. 


     And know that we are not alone on this big lily pad

but surrounded by the light of all that is love..



May the light of love surround you…

May it keep you afloat

May your soul be anchored

to that which Sparkles…


To Everyone

Good Morning…  Good Afternoon…  Good Night

Whatever it is to you..

Flowers and Life

Flowers are a huge part of my summer as I am surrounded by them both domestic and wild.  I share with you some of my photos of flowers and poems from myself as well as thoughts and poems from other authors.  Hope your summer is also filled with the colors that flowers can bring.    

From out of the black she comes   

A flower as bright as a star

Her colours bold and brilliant

She radiates her love afar

- Author Here I Am/Carrie

What a desolate place would be a world without a flower! 
It would be a face without a smile, a feast without a welcome.
Are not flowers the stars of the earth, and are not our stars
the flowers of the heaven.
-   A.J. Balfour




It is at the edge of a petal that love waits.
- William Carlos Williams




The Earth Laughs in Flowers
-  Ralph Waldo Emerson





Since Iris is the Greek goddess for the Messenger of Love, her sacred
flower is considered the symbol of communication and messages.
Greek men would often plant an iris on the graves of their beloved
women as a tribute to the goddess Iris, whose duty it was to
take the souls of women to the Elysian fields.
-   Hana No Monogatari 





Each flower a soul opening out to nature.

-   Gerald De Nerval




Where flowers bloom so does hope. 




Who would have thought it possible that a tiny little flower
could preoccupy a person so completely that there simply
wasn't room for any other thought....
-   Sophie Scholl




In my garden there is a large place for sentiment.

My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams.

The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful.
-   Abram L. Urban




Flowers are love's truest language.
-   Park Benjamin




If you pass by the colour purple in a field and
don't notice it, God gets real pissed off.
-   Alice Walker

  Geranium purple



Lone and erect, beneath light's primal flood,
A lily!  and pure as any one of you.
-   Mallarme

Little flower, but if I could understand, what you are,

root and all in all, I should know what God and man is.
-  Tennyson

Marigold boy-o-boy



From the dark she came and into the light she went

Stretching, stretching towards the sun...

she reaches for the heavens above

But grounded to the earth

she always stays.....
