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.

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!
