Like Trees Walking

Looks like a crowd wandering through a field of grass to me.

Bathroom Door Collage



Feeling creative these days, so worked on a collage for the back of the bathroom door.  It’s an old school door with a large window.  I’ve had fabric framed over it but never really liked it, so this brightens the corner up some and it was fun making it.

Simply Creative

The trouble with simple living is that, though it can be joyful, rich, and creative,
it isn’t simple.

Thank You

To whom do I owe this compliment,
this bouquet of flowers so rare,
to whom do I pay a tribute
and with whom can I share.

Who gave the grass beneath my feet,
from where does the sun brightly shine,
this body, these thoughts, this heart within
who or what made it all mine.

I thank you, I thank you,
whatever your name may be,
for the sun, the grass and the flowers,
I thank you for making me.

An Ode and Thanks To Farmers

Farmers know where food comes from,
not from shelves in grocery stores,
nor from behind warehouse doors,
not from bottles, cans or bags,
with fancy coloured sale-price tags.

Farmers know what real food is
not plastic coated, perfect stuff,
tasteless, sugar-coated fluff,
not dyed, suffused with medicine
forever lasting in a bin.

Farmers grow what feeds the soul,
fruit and veggies full of health
grown to nourish not for wealth
back-breaking work-outs every day
with little thanks and little pay

So hats off to the farmers,
may many join their ranks
and all of us give thanks
that in our midst someone still knows
where good health grows.
