Daydreaming

As the spring snow falls prettily outside the window,

My thoughts fly away like a bird:

I’m summer dreaming.

Light, returning

The aria of light returning

Is beautiful music indeed.

Light returning

The windows of my soul I throw
Wide open to the sun.
~John Greenleaf Whittier

Frosted

The last day of November was gloriously cold:

A frosted universe presented itself —

Frosty flowers that looked like stars floating in the cosmos;

Frosty flowers 1 copy

Small ice crystals in the shape of

Trees on the postbox lock;

Frosted lock

A storm passed through

And left frozen waves in its wake;

frosted waves

A bird hiding out in the icy reeds

Sang a morning song;

bird

And yes, even a rubbish bin

Transformed into something greater than itself

In the frosted sun.

Golden feathers

Sometimes —

When the light is right

And lies in golden ribbons on the water,

The ordinary (even if just the legs of a duck)

Becomes extraordinary.

Soaring spirits

We don’t know where or how our story will end,

But sometimes it’s good just to let ourselves take wing

And soar.

We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.

— Joseph Campbell

Hope is the thing with feathers

I caught this bird basking on the golden branches of a tree and it struck me

How large the bird was, and how slender and fragile the branches.

Sometimes, life feels like that: the heavy weight of a burden

Sitting on the fragile tree of life.

You don’t think you can support the weight. But you do.

Because just like that lovely tree, we are stronger than we realize.

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune–without the words,
And never stops at all.

— Emily Dickinson
