“She enjoys rain for its wetness, winter for its cold, summer for its heat. She loves rainbows as much for fading as for their brilliance. It is easy for her, she opens her heart and accepts everything.”   
{Morgan Llywelyn, Bard: The Odyssey of the Irish}

Good Morning, Friend

The Embrace

"Good Morning, Friend! It's so nice to see you."

"Lovely weather we're having!"

"Why yes, it certainly is!"

"Come fly with me!"

Garbage Collector

I step outside into the warm sun,

A box of papers in my hands.

Strolling down the driveway,

The garbage collector greets me.

He takes the large box from my hands,

I thank him.

Strolling back up the driveway I think,

"Some days are like this,

We get just what we need,

When we pause to realize it."

Autumn Jewels

“On the motionless branches of some trees, autumn berries hung like clusters of coral beads, as in those fabled orchards where the fruits were jewels . . ."
