Sounds and Sights of Spring

Bluejays, cardinals, mockingbirds, bluebirds, finches, doves and crows grace the backyard oasis on the first day of spring.

Blooming yellow forsythia and a bank of periwinkle with a Lenten rose in full bloom surround the waterfall as the goldfish swim in the pond below.

Grateful for ears that hear and eyes that see.

Grateful for Spring and all that spring brings.

Moon Flower

Signed - Moon Flower

September moon shone brightly upon the lawn

tiptoeing outside in the evening dew

one ginormous Moon flower blossom beams bright white as it greets the night for a one night show

oh what a beautiful sight…

…soft, luxurious, delicate, velvety blossom – divided by soft lines of gold nectar to reveal a starfish hidden within

its debut – always unknown – like a babe born into this world

yet, the Moon flower’s purpose is to razzle dazzle like a magician – and put on a show – and a show it did put on – shining brightly through the night

thank you Moon Flower – until we meet again – good night!
