Good Morning from the Lakeside Deck, Lake Ann, Ozarks, Poetry, Winter

Good morning from the lakeside deck

It’s a bright sunshine morning with lots of glitter sparkling off the water and through the trees over on Bear Cove. Lake Ann is so beautiful, what a wonderful bit of heaven right here in Bella Vista. That I, Joan, can be here and be a part of this is unimaginable to me, even though I have been here, now ten years.
I shake my head and wonder where has the time gone — but it still feels new to be here, but it also feels like my home now. For the first time in my life except for my childhood home, this, house on Lake Ann, feels like being home. It’s like I have been searching for this place all of my life.

Home
Home sweet home
Where the heart
Sings

Sun Sitting Still

Good morning from Rogers AR ~

I traveled into work today along Hwy 71 with the morning sun seemingly sitting still in a thick haze.

My morning writing ~

Quickened scenes
Heavy curtains fall
Sun rises through

What is it that makes a day work for you?

When you feel you just can’t handle it today ~ yet you go ahead and stay then move through ~ so you too can rise!

Brrr It’s Cold Outside ~ for #NaPoWriMo Day 7/15

Good morning from inside this morning ~ Freezing temperatures and grey clouds greet me. Who would ever know it’s really April by just looking outside?

My morning writing ~ 6 lines

Sitting inside
Looking outside

Bathed in greys
Water reflections of whole skys

All with the hint
of fresh spring greens

Spring Watch for NaPoWriMo Day 4/12

Good morning from the lakeside deck —
Sunshine greets me and its 65 degrees! Warm with a forecasted windy day and storms coming for tomorrow. However, now there is stillness and quiet air lays over Lake Ann, with a slight south wind. Birds seem to know something is on its way as they are all out and feeding. All of us are in anticipation of what will come later today.

Haiku 3/5/3 and 3/5/1

Red-tailed hawk
Visiting hollowed out
Woodpecker tree

Two Cardinals
Sounding their songs
Spring

Sitting Underneath #NaPoWriMo Day 3/11

This is a warm spring morning! It’s ALL GOOD . . .
Good morning from the lakeside deck – This morning’s write will be some short haiku as I have a full day.  Take good care and God’s blessing to all.

My prayers today go out to all those you are suffering from illness, war, and poverty.

Thinly veiled
Scattered gold sun rays
Pierce moments

Caught up in moments
“Please don’t take my life away”
Only you can see

You can see
My mind runs forward
Time will tell

Time chosen
Planes drop killing bombs
Children see

Pray for them
Sacred young children
Pray for them
