but an echo of the past?

balance from within

outside is a weather vane

one step at a time

the heart can handle hurdles

think tortoise, not hare

I start a big fire outside.

baby birds and butterflies

waiting for the dawn

sassy little wren

nesting in a hanging pot

like a flower child

Happy Flowers


Do not dwell on bad

or bad will only turn worse

water the flowers.

I found a fat toad

sleeping in the flower bed

Shh, quiet! He works nights.

the purple blossoms

for the happy butterfly
