whisper and desires

the weekend was cold and snowy, 
but there are moments i can already smell Spring, 
just a hint 
my fingers itch to get out there in the garden
 and clear away the dry stems and leaves from last year,
prune the roses and plant out the pansy seedlings i sowed last year,
i long for fllowers, for bees and birds and sun on my face,

whisper and desires

dc lighthouse

maybe you are a lighthouse
guiding me along steep cliffs 
 new shores

we meet and part
again , again
 and over again

i will not drown
you will not burn
we are water and land 
we glow
blazing mirrors
in a dark night

this week's theme is lighthouse, in dutch the word is 'vuurtoren'  (loosely translated: tower of fire),
i like  both these words

please take a look at the work and inspiration
at the beautiful blogs of 
and Norma

thanks for your participation and reactions
have a sweet weekend

robin and frog (and a fly)

 still working on my animal book,
i'm picking native animals that live around here, in the woods, by the water,  in the garden
but there will be also domestic animals , 

for each animal i work with a thought in mind, a sentence,
for example frog ;' i like the beautiful reflection of a frog in the water, his bare skin is human like to me, fragile'
or robin ; he is always there outside in winter, on his own, not the best of friends with the other birds, bold but gorgeous'

winter is not over yet
the sun , still standing very low 
i breathe little clouds
 watch  a pair of collared doves in the bare birchtree
and when i  direct my gaze to the ground during my daily garden walk
i see things are changing
it slowly 'greens' out there
