A hot summer day
not a single leaf moves.
Even the shade is hot.
Can’t breathe, air is hot!
All I need is “a summer sleep”,
wake me up in Autumn,
when the winds blow;
raindrops fall nonstop.
Chill in the air, snow’s
on its way, a real Autumn day.
Want to skip the best season,
want to skip the heat, drought!
Give me rain any day, any month
to cool me down, to feed the earth,
give me anything but the heat..
Always searching for ET,
worrying, counting hours,
praying for her safe return…
A cool cat explores cool, shady,
green corners of the woods,
blending with dimness around;
on self-made earthen bed…
Pass her by time and time, there
she lies motionless, soundless,
not even a little miaow out of
courtesy, indulges herself to this
solitude of hers, shameless…
And when she’s found out, heavens!
Kindest cat on earth, loving, caring,
letting herself being touched, caressed
endlessly until she says “when”…
Beautiful green with heartwarming pink
You stole my heart with your Scottish link
Growing freely in my garden, tall and grand
Planted everywhere by a mysterious hand.
Proud, handsome and pleasing to eye
For my beloved country a freedom cry
From mountains to valleys, and sky
All over the world your seeds will fly…
Wind whispers tales of seeds flying around; to fall into the dark corners of earth, vanish, to reappear as green leaves alive and eager to grow, greet the sun, flourish, and give buds of beautiful flowers to please: with colours, fragrance, form…
Wildflowers in all colours in my garden, remind me of meadows, countryside, woods, where I would like to live instead. Wild, without man-made rules, with only the order of nature. Seeds become flowers, plants to return until infinity, eternal…
May I be the one flying around with winds, falling, to give life, beauty, scent, colour and live forever in nature, endlessly happy?
No more rain, maybe fog, better get up early to watch the beautiful sunrise…
Sun intrigues me, only when opening eyes to greet the earth where I live and closing them to leave us to darkening skies.
Conundrum: which one first? Feeding birds or running down the hill to greet the sun’s first rays.
Love taking photos when this happens: Each time other colour combinations, other clouds, misty or bright or dreamy and sleepy, yet determined each and every time to make an appearance.
Millions year old, still beautiful, powerful, the best actor, in the best show ever on earth.
“There will always be sunrises, sunsets, somewhere on this world.”
I will witness mine over and over again whenever I can, wherever I will be.
The dawn of July 17, 2014
Last few days were very dark, not only weather wise…
Those days are a test of our existence as humans; of our values, patience, strength, also testing of our love we nurture in our hearts towards other human beings. Sometimes we fail terribly, other times we are amazed for the degree of our stamina. Mine is still being valued.
I love rain, especially long showers for a day / days or slow, peaceful, nourishing nature sort of rain. This time it rained about three days, keeping gardeners indoors, also making them very happy. Darkness still embracing us is giving an eerie sphere, full of anticipation of bright summer sun…
Not a Pollyanna by nature, I still try to see the positive side of everything. We cannot continuously cry or be gloomy for the reasons which are causing these dark days. Crazy about a laughter and searching every time for solutions about the problems; I believe that there is always a way out except death of course.
I will be keeping my silence until I really will have reasons to laugh, feel happier than now, and be a good blogger…
See you later, hugs…
Today the weather is like how I want some of my summer days to be: a gentle rain is generously giving life to nature, not very cloudy, clearing up a bit… Today I also found out that my storage is about to come to its limit that I should update with a certain sum.
At the beginning I had no bloggers to like my posts except one dear Twitter friend from Down Under. Thank you for your support Fred, very much appreciated Now I got to know you a bit, one at a time, loved your posts, liked them all, even if there were many from the same blogger in one day…It’s a close-knit community with so much talent in poetry, prose and visuals…One can learn endlessly just sitting down and enjoying each post. The lack of time prevented me to explore new bloggers, I remained following back the ones followed me. I do thank you all.
This is not good-bye: one of the rare posts will be appearing on this site. Because I would like to talk with my photos; only an amateur photographer who cannot think her life without them… I have been on Google Plus for a while now: there one can post as much as their hearts desire. Thinking that I was about to close my account recently, and lingered a while, happily, I will now concentrate my time to this account: https://www.google.com/+BethVesseur99 and also here I post my newest photos: https://www.facebook.com/beth.vesseur
I just posted on Google + the 2nd of “Summer Scenes” which were planned for here, 5 more to follow this week. I’ll be around; I hope you’ll all enjoy a wonderful summer, sorry Fred, a mild winter for you
Until next time, hugs to everyone…
