Oasis To My Soul

An oasis with water is cool to my skin 
Giving such shade from the heat of the day
Lets me rest from the world’s loud din

So is your love this way for my soul
A breathe of fresh air and a sweet melody
 Touches my heart, making me whole©

Water’s Edge

Out for a beautiful stroll along the water’s edge. Serene, still waters and pleasant fall temperatures. A perfect day for a walk. The bridge lies ahead and a path behind.

Let The Light In

Muted Tones

Sometimes colors are brilliant, then there are times they are muted and ordinary. In either case, we can choose where our focus lies. Even in darkness, the outline of beauty can show through if searched for hard enough. ©SBDMB (MM)

Changing Leaves

Changing Leaves

The tree, a picture of strength
It grows older and stronger
With each season it may differ
But the unseen roots remain

Oh, to be like a great maple
Standing against the storm and wind
It may lose its beauty to the winter
But then renewed again in spring

Reaching towards the sun and sky
Tears of dew wet on its face
Blossoming to another new year
Ever mindful that leaves do change

Mossy Beams

“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity… and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.”~ William Blake

I came across this one, quite old tree, standing very much alone in the center of a parking lot, of all places. It was beautifully spectacular with its mossy limbs and beams of sunlight dancing through branches. So many passing by, not stopping to wonder at the radiance of this tree and perhaps ponder the life that it has seen.

Reflections Through The Pane

Reflections Through The Pane

Peering through the window pane

I reflect on the day that’s passed

My tears fall gently, silently

I am touched by hues of color


The tree reflects on year gone by

Day is ending, darkness is at bay

Its leaves begin to fall like rain

There is beauty in the pain

Simply Sunday

After having a tropical storm blow through on Friday dumping large amounts of rain, it is quite nice to be back to normal. Also, the temperatures are finally letting up becoming more seasonal. Now that September has arrived, it is a beautiful mid 80’s verses the 90’s to 100’s (farenheit). I enjoyed a low key afternoon and was able to get outdoors to soak up the sun. Here is the view from my patio. The trees swaying in the breeze, the birds chirping and the sky so blue with no clouds. Not sure there is anything better than a ‘simple’ Sunday afternoon, specially when followed by a holiday Monday. Happy Labor Day to all those in The States.
