A big hello to all my friends! We arrived home late this afternoon. Thought about all of you often and tried a few times to find a way to get online, but to no avail.

To say it simply, I missed all of you very much.......

                          A living tapestry.......





        All is quiet, mother earth is asleep,
    a gentle calming breeze floats overhead.
     Kitties are snuggled, sleeping soundly,
        all three together sharing one bed.

     Birds on their perch next to each other,
   patiently wait for the first morning light.
  Time to wake up, make haste, get dressed,
        pour the coffee and inhale the sight.

          God has endowed us with never
                         ending beauty,
         riches of mountains, lakes, rivers
                           and streams.
        Strong yet fragile, larger than life,
 a wondrous work of art, so detailed it seems.

        Strolling along paths made long ago,
 ground underfoot crackles from fallen leaves.
     Sunshine peeks through to light the way,
        a living tapestry that nature weaves.

         Legs getting tired, backpack heavy,
        searching around for a place to rest.
      Natural clearing makes a perfect spot,
      to stop and observe nature at her best.

   All of God's creatures are scurrying about,
        searching for food, building nests
                          if they could.
     Newborn birds chirping high in the trees,
       adult birds scavenging as they should.

          Time is passing, though I would
                         rather remain,
    where one can think, imagine and dream.
      Perhaps another day when all is quiet,
    another chance to relax, enjoy, be serene.

I too wish that we could enjoy life in such innocence. A very expressive tale that draws my heart into the moment, and I start to look within the painting as part of it. Thank you for this lovely writing, Karen.

The warmth and stillness in your inner spirit exude the serenity into this write, Karen. And you are blessed with an artist's eye that is able to see and record it all for us with rapt awe and accuracy. I am so pleased you are back safe and sound... The sounds of your storms and potential of flooding had me worried... even more so given the current conditions we are also experiencing here in Britain at this time. Glad you're well and relaxed, rejuvenated. TY Kate xx

The backpack, made me smile, I know that feeling of relief...
Nowt beats nature, like He said, we can't even make anything equal to a lilly, alas though there is one thing I've learned that is better than much in nature, that being thoughts of beauty and shared love. Be it with a special friend or lover, and enjoying nature with either is totally amazing. Took me most of my life to realise, find and keep that....
