grow your own sun

It’s chilly again today, and grey,

but I have sunflowers on my table.

And just in case you follow me here, but not on my other blog…
you might want to hop on over to see my latest post.
I’m celebrating being published in Bella Grace,
(Stampington and Company’s newest publication).

Leave a comment over there to enter for a chance to win
your own copy of Bella Grace, plus one of my photos
and a pair of sterling silver earrings.

Wishing you a weekend filled with sunshine!

a dream {redux}

may begin in the dark,

but hold it up to the light

and it will shine.

open-ended {redux}

Each day starts out that way.

Each book as you crack its cover, each first day
of vacation, each January 1st, each blank sheet of paper.

But you can narrow it down, which makes it larger.
Expand the open-ended of your life…

Each hour. Each minute.

Each second.

Right. Now.

the secret garden {redux}


Can be hard to find…

sometimes it’s just a weed

on the side of the road,


it’s a bouquet

brought home with love,

and sometimes,

it’s in your heart.

wallflower {redux}

She never once looked in a mirror.
Never recognized her own beauty.
Never thanked the bees for their kisses.

She only had eyes for the sun.

He came and he went, barely noticing her presence.
He spread his light and warmth all around,
ambivalent, benevolent.

He never played favorites.
He warmed her heart with whispers of tomorrow.
He was always on time.

Each day, she grew taller, reaching for him.

One day he did not come.
The sky was covered in a blanket of gray,
so sad that it cried.

She saw herself for the first time,
a reflection in a drop of rain,
thirst quenched.

She knew then what she needed.

the summer of love lies bleeding

because there it is, almost as tall as I am

(after I went out and picked it up off the ground yesterday,
staked it up, hoping it will hold, because
I’m not ready to let go of this love just yet.)

the view from my studio window this morning
and the tiny bit of pink up there at the very top
is kiss me over the garden gate
and all of this just to say that
love actually is
(quite literally)
all around


wishing you a week filled with love
