Today I thought of You..

my own picture















Turtles basking in a mid day sun
slow & easy pacing one's steps

soft reflections of life's journey
transformation in cooling waters

recalling warm breath of spring
creating balance, mystical pond

ancient songs,  rattling wisdom
promises of healing & strength

carrying the weight of the earth
grounded during difficult times

hidden door keeper between realms
opening hearts for inner peace

Today I thought of you...

  3. Peaceful and serene tone! The turtles suggest wisdom and the acceptance of life as it is, with its difficulties but also its certainties.

    1. I was thinking of animals and emotions and the turtles came to
      mind. I took this picture myself and wanted to try and convey
      how they make me feel.

  10. Would you be surprised to hear I thought of you too?
    A deeper shade of blue also known as Grumpy Goo?
    If I were a turtle I'd remove that frigging shell
    And challenge fate basking butt naked as hell
    Pardon my Greek as I recall this day of spring
    Stored in my big ole memory thing
    Do you remember your first spring, Truedessa Dear?
    Promises of days to come devoid of fear?
    The first flower you ever took in?
    Not knowing where to begin?
    Today I thought of you
    I love that springy hue
    You too?

    1. Hi Blue,

      Glad to know you thought of me too
      I remember spring days full of fun
      basking in rays of golden sun..
      remembering days I came undone..
      a flower dripping with morning dew..

    2. Spring days are the very best
      A bit of sun, a bit of jest
      A bit of everything you truly love
      A golden sun, A blue suede glove? ;)
