Skylight

I live underneath a tree skylight

In a wonderland of woodland trees

Where spring waters flow into beautiful lakes

With ease and peaceful mornings

I touch the sky

Quickened sounds of birds & critters

Fill every crevice down sloping hillsides

Telling of safe maneuvers through rock & tree

With hope and comfort for coming days

I touch the earth

Summer

Sky

Step out into the sky …

Lash it around you

And hold it close

Swinging it to and fro

As you drop straight over

The White River bottom bridge …

Carrying the mighty sky with you

Listen to the meadow larks

As you watch

Giant double winged dragonflies

Fly through triple-wired fences

Strap summertime’s heavy sun

Next to you

As the wind carries you

And descends

Through tall grass rushes

Blowing along

Old Red Bird fields

Ride the Bright Blue Sky and

Fly the heavy Tossed Hot Summer winds

Traveling down country roads

Lite on sweet sunflowers & thistle blooms

As you make this

a most

glorious

high

summertime

day

Spring

Good morning from the lakeside deck ~

Arkansas Rains today ~ you know, those gentle rains that come out on the edges behind a big storm as it moves through ~

I love the feeling of being outside on my deck with cool tree breezes moving through the cove and birds signing their morning songs.

I sit high up in the tree tops and can hear the rain dripping through the layers of leaves as it falls toward the ground!

What a journey we have if only we “pause” enough to listen and see!

Blessings ~
My Haiku this morning ~
this is for our heart’s prayers.

Morning Inspirations

My poem ~ inspired by morning inspirations, Rev Pamela, Highlands Onocology

Open my eyes, ears and heart to listen

As I am in waiting for words and wisdom

While I’m searching for healing

With a touch of soft solace for my soul

I pray for abundant grace and mercy

I find you meeting me here today

As you wrap your arms around me

In sweet gentle love

~ by Joanie

Thank you Rev. Pamela for always giving much inspiration and encouragement to everyone that you meet.

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!

Spring

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
