nurt thurs – me gift

We still do not know one thousandth of one percent

of what nature has revealed to us.

Albert Einstein

my first sight, from the window of a plane, when we moved here was this river. i knew that my home had to be close by it, i didn’t want to go anywhere far from this blue water.

yesterday i took the day off, first day of spring and i decided i am worth of this ‘me gift’ to enjoy nature. I had a long walk by the river, stopping on its small beaches along the way. it was so refreshing and healing. in each corner i could see the earth transforming, getting ready for the warm days ahead.

hope you had a wonderful day, and don’t forget to give yourself a ‘me gift’!

Sunday Stills – Wild Nature

Without a firm participation with wild nature, a woman starves and falls into a obsession of “fell betters”, “leave me alones” and “love me – please” … Go out in the woods, go out. If you don’t go out in the woods, nothing will ever happen and your life will never begin.

Women who run with the wolves

Each day we are getting far and far from nature, from the wild. Everything is so sterilized, chemical and modified by the humans that we are losing our true essence.

I look for the wild in every place, from a spider web in my backyard to the mystery of the forests, mostly in books since we don’t have a forest close by.

Sometimes we need to get lost in the wild to find our true-self!

Tanka Tuesday – Energy

Since today is a full moon, my poem has to be about her. I was waiting for the moon to rise and take the photo for the post. This moon is a supermoon and is called a snow moon.

View from my kitchen at 7 pm eastern time

Letting go of the sacred innocence
the soothing music of the forest
in the dark February sky
bathed in flower essence and
dressed in a silver dress
distressed wolves howling
full snow moon blooms
she is bold
desired
joy

The words for today are game and trouble so I’ve chosen bold and distressed as synonyms. I’m using the Etheree form of poetry.

Full moon blessing to you!

Sunday Stills: Frozen River

Today, Terri asks us to post about Frozen, an easy theme for me. I only need to cross a street to take a few pics of a frozen river. Many pretty spots to shoot, but this one above is magical, an ice sculpture!

This corner was sparking while being bathed with sunshine. I stopped there a little bit, a few minutes of solitude listening to the water move under the ice.

And on the way, I found this piece of ice shaped like a heart. Yes, secret messages everywhere.

Hope you enjoyed to walk along the frozen river with me.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Tanka Tuesday: Storm

the storm is coming
unhurried willing moment
lightness in the air
letting go of any task
only being here and now

Joining Colleen’s poetry challenge. The words for this week are slow and work. We can use synonyms only.

I took this photo yesterday when leaving work, a storm was approaching and everyone was in hurry to get back home. The moment was so precious, I felt the lightness in the air, I took my time, slowly savoring the moment, step by step, taking photos, no hurry.
