Dawn gold

Something woke me up far too early (before 5 am).

Perhaps it was the golden silence

Calling my name;

Dawn 1

Or the beaver in the lake

As he swam through watery clouds.

Dawn 3

Perhaps it was the glory

Of a new day whispering:

Do not miss a single golden moment.

The future is made up of nows

Sometimes  — when we lose sight of the important things in life —

It takes a child or a dog to remind us

That life isn’t to be lived in the future

But in the now.

Or in the words of Mae West, “Too much of a good thing can be wonderful.”

Golden Y-ears

Last week was Oscar’s birthday

(He’s the dog)

And a gloriously frosty day.

The delicate inner ear of a rose

offered up its secret beauty.

Sunlight sparkled on the pink ears

Of a brave flower still in bloom.

We visited a thousand-year-old rune stone

Rising out of the ground like a tooth,

To remind us that these are the golden years,

The moments to seize, to bathe in,

To remember while they last.

Write it in stone

This is one of my favourite spots for gazing at the lake and the sky and just being.

Lately, it has been a favourite spot for summer picnics and kids with a spray can.

At first, I was cross because the graffiti spoiled the perfection of the smooth stones against the blue sky.

But then, it reminded me of a saying I read somewhere.

Write your worries in the sand and your joys in stone.
