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.

Holding On.

Leaves have fallen. Branches bared.

Only one staying is this nest up here.

Holding tight to wind, rain, and sun.

A reminder of growth, nurturing, and young.

Eventually, it will fall away. 

Creating space for a new one one-day.

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•·

Love and blessings, πŸ’• Carrie

Haiku. Bless You. πŸ˜‰

Forest stream flowing

upon the brook rocks glowing

weave natures sowing

😬 Never really sure about haiku. Maybe it is the whole structure thing? They do give the brain a work out. πŸ™‚

Is that?!

I am almost certain my face and posture where the same.

He is saying is that a human?

Me? I was squinting. Trying to see.

Is that a bluebird, who landed by me?

We both twist and crane. Looking the same.

Except he’s in blue and orange. I’m in drab grey

with pink shoes. I did not plan to go out today.

Nature called. I answered. Here we are it seems.

Both looking. Both here. On this lovely day.

Isn’t he lovely. 😍 

Love and blessings, πŸ’• Carrie

Dew Kissed. Sun Kissed. And Gorgeous.

Morning has arrived. Sun be speckled skies.

Dew kissed world. Sparkles like diamonds and pearls.

It wakes with quiet light. Kissing gently away the night.

To erupt in glorious hues. Autumn foliage, flowers, and dew.

All fresh and new. Feeling quite alive and promised skies.

Speaks of sun and a hint of warmth. Enough to kiss the dew away.

Woken to another spectacular autumn day.

Always blessed by nature’s beauty. Even in the smallest flowers, nature provides an elegance and light which brightens my world every time.

Love and blessings, πŸ’• Carrie

Vibrant.

Only you could pull it off.

Vibrant hues and funky socks.

Only you could look this way.

Oddly beautiful. Stunning day.

Vibrant in your fall foliage.

Cool and crisp your air is.

I will definitely take more vibrant days like this!
