Keep Your Vision

“Don’t be discouraged if people don’t see your vision, your harvest. All they see from their perspective is that you’re watering a whole lot of dirt. They don’t SEE what seeds you’ve been planting with blood, sweat, tears and lack of sleep. Make sure you don’t abandon or neglect it because “they” don’t see it. You have to KNOW and believe for yourself. They don’t see the roots and what’s budding under the dirt. But it’s okay, because it’s NOT meant for them to see it. While you wait, MASTER it. You continue to do YOUR work and have unwavering faith! Remember why you started planting in the first place. Your harvest WILL come!”
~Yvonne Pierre, The Day My Soul Cried: A Memoir

Finding Beauty Anywhere

Finding beauty even in the midst of sorrow. For me there is just something about photographs of grave yards that is so serene. I couldn’t help but capture this one, with the rod-iron fence and the beautiful fall colors in the background.  For some it may seem odd, but why not celebrate beauty wherever we can find it.

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

Cultivate Yourself

“Apply yourself both now and in the next life. Without effort, you cannot be prosperous. Though the land be good, You cannot have an abundant crop without cultivation.” ~Plato
