Wordflow Resting

Spirit poems and the shape of our prayers,

will be much more beautiful,

so much stronger

when our bodies and minds

are at rest.

Wordflow resting.

Note: I’m on a one day blogging break, and will return in a day or so.

In Those Canyons Within


In those canyons within our lives where we search

for a safe place,

a quiet space,

to renew and begin again

we needn’t look far

to find the open arms

of nature and peace,


our rivers to run freely.


Note: I’m actually off today recharging. Following a one day out of seven concept. Until tomorrow. Peace.

A Day in the Life III


Well I don’t have a sandwich to talk about today, but I am looking forward to some roasted red pepper hummus, on some pita bread,

whole wheat of course. And some sparkling water with some lemon-lime flavoring will be a special treat.

I’ve been realizing that I’m pushing too hard again. There are a lot of hours at work, a number of doctor’s appointments, and blogging too.

Please remember I’m not a professional blogger. I need rest, just like I write about!

In the most ancient of times, the One who made us all, the One who has always been,

told us to take a break once in awhile. One day in seven sounds great to me!

I’ll post a little, and be back to reading your great posts in a few days.

Now all I need is a spoon for this excellent hummus.

Wishing you peace! Stay healthy!

I’ll Be Resting in My Garden


I’ll be resting in my garden with my eyes only half closed

dreaming, aware of the earth’s spin

and of poems floating

through the clouds.

I’ve decided to take a summer break, which for me does not include hiding on Instagram and Twitter!

I will still be here, only less often. In addition to trips to the beach and the mountains I will be on photographic journeys.

Did you know that was my other hobby?

I’m also making time for something I’ve really wanted to do……and that is reading, as in reading books!

Reading outside is even more amazing. Now where did I put my sunglasses?

Resting Under the Pine Trees


With the safety of being under the pine branches, I allowed the light

to find me, only with small streaks.

The warmth of the earth

surprised me, and shadows embraced

my mind, as I lay down

with the smell of Christmas,

I remember hearing

a blue-jay singing

close by

as I drifted off,

dreaming of my spirit floating

over the mountains.

The Day of Rest


And when the Creator saw everything that He had made, He saw that it was good. In fact, He saw that it was very good indeed. And this included the people created.

And the Creator rested from all His labors. This is how the Sabbath was made, a day to bring us freedom from working too much.

May you be rested and refreshed, whichever day you choose to be free from work.

I wish you peace.

Peace and blessings to everyone.

“When we love people, we give them hope.”



Sometimes we are so beat up

so worn out, that we retreat

into the forest, or a dark

mountain trail, or at least

into the dark corners of our weekend,

seeking the solace

of rest.


May you be restored physically, and in every way this week end.

If we pull back too far, we can lose ourselves

our sense of direction, our vision

but sometimes pulling back

is the only thing

that makes sense.


Note: I’ll be stepping away from the computer for a while. I tend to try too hard, and wear myself out. I have a lot of reading planned and a number of books lined up. I’ll also be planning for the future.
