Emotography Week 29



The Promise of Spring

The air starts to warm
and the sky starts to blue.
The garden calls,”Come”
so I start to do.
But as I’m busily working
I pause for awhile;
for the promise of buds
brings hope with a smile;
that they’ll open their petals
to colours all true.
Once the air starts to warm
and the sky starts to blue.

Emotography Week 26



When I took this photograph I was only interested in the cluster of berries.
Now when I look at it, it gives me hope: Firstly because the branch, though it has been broken is still able to go on doing what its life intended it to do, produce these lovey red berries. Secondly, the trunk, though showing its age by the moss covering its grey, still supports the branch in its achievement.
When I apply these thoughts to some of the sorrows in people’s lives, and to the age in mine, Hope is what comes to mind.

Quote Challenge-Day Three

My theme today is “New Beginnings”

Quote 1
Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending. {Carl Bord}


Quote 2
Morning will come, it has no choice. {Marty Rubin}


Quote 3
The chief beauty about time
is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you,
as perfect, as unspoiled,
as if you had never wasted or misapplied
a single moment in all your life.
You can turn over a new leaf every hour
if you choose. {Arnold Bennett}


Joy of this day

Let’s live joyously!
Disregarding our fear
of the hovering spectre
of war and want that’s near.

Let’s live joyously!
Because we can share
to alleviate others’ needs
and show them that we care.

Let’s live joyously!
Loving while we may,
with a heart of cheerful hope,
for we only have today.
