You Lured Me.

Oh, nature,

You lured me outside with your whisp of fog.

Your heavy cloud blocking the rising sun.

Like a shelf holding things up too high to see.

You lured me outside with your dew kissed everything.

Your misty embrace. I was enchanted. Soothed and invigorated.

Nature, thank you. For your magical morning that lured me outside.

It was a wonderful delight. A cherished moment in time.

You have my permission to lure again and again.

So I may feel refreshed and rejuvenated.

Alive once more.

Ferns and Fungi

I am always fascinated with ferns and fungi. I remember hiking with my parents as a kid and poking fun at dad for stopping often to photograph ferns, fungi, nuts, and other random stuff. Now, I find myself doing the same. πŸ™‚

Ferns.

Fungi.

Random stuff. πŸ˜‰

The world is full of brilliantly, beautiful things!

Love and blessings, πŸ’• Carrie

Yes. It Is A Glorious Morn!

He flies to see. The sun rise above the trees.

Puffed to keep warm. Waiting to sing his 

glorious song. I should be facing the other way,

so I can watch the sunrise, today. Yet here I face,

this little bird. Watch as he waits patiently for the morn to unfold.

I truly feel blessed to share this morning with such a lovely being.

Open To The Sound

Rushing, rustling, crunching, slow-soft hum

of wind. Carrying us across the forests and meadows.

Constantly changing from a gust to a breeze.

Tickling our noses to sneeze.

Warming then cooling. In a matter of moments.

All to be felt. Embraced. Entranced.

As we feel you, wind, on our face.

Blessed be are those who seek

the sounds the wind can show.

Across the vast land it blows.

Picking up what it may. Carrying our thoughts and dreams

along.  Listening to our hopes and fears.

Blowing what we do not need out of here.

Nature’s Decorating For Halloween. πŸŽƒ

The leaves turned.

Spiders are spinning decor.

Nature’s Halloween.

It’s absolutely gorgeous when the dew and fog mix with sunrise. Look at these webs!

Beautiful! 

It warmed up on this day exposing a lot of spider string, or travel webs.

It was like dodging laser beams to get to the jewels. Except I was only walking to the bus stop to pick up kids. Same difference, really. 

Although I have no idea what it’s like to walk through a laser beam, I get to walk through webs a lot this time of year. Between the outdoor webs, and the wolf spiders who keep try to convince me to let them winter in the house, it’s a bit ridiculous. Yet I would much rather have the spiders, then be overrun by whatever they’re eating. 😬 Side note, the wolf spiders do go back outside, usually in a jar ride to the deck. They still have not convinced me to let them stay. πŸ•·

May nature help you decorate this fall! If you’d like, that is. πŸπŸŽƒ

May you dodge webs like a ninja. πŸ˜† πŸ•ΈπŸ•·
