Some of you may have seen this before. It is still my favorite necklace. 😉
Sometimes, when your hands are tied with knots you can’t undo,
your only choice is to wait patiently.
Sometimes, you may be able to loosen those ties that bind
and make a choice.
Think through the difficult choices
and make the decision with certain serenity.
While on vacation in Crested Butte, Colorado, I saw this old washing machine sitting in a front yard of a beautiful old house. Why did I take a photo?
Not only was I mesmerized by its beauty, I pictured the gone-by years when it actually worked. (From what I can tell from a wee bit of research, this machine was probably created in the 1920’s.) I conjured up the image of a person who used this machine. I pictured flapper attire, boys knee-length trousers, looser corsets and fancy stockings being pushed through the wringer.
Although its function was temporary, my curiosity — and perhaps those of others who had strolled passed — remains.
Weekly photo prompt – temporary
Don’t be afraid
open the window
let in the air
Take a peek inside, see
hearts and ire
candles and daggers
roses and soot
monuments and ruins
a fortress and a tennament
a marauder and a Nobel
thunderstorms and clear skies
an anchor and a lifeboat
You are all of these
Open your window
let in the air
see you faults and graces,
your discord and harmony
And when you do
There is nothing to fear
on Armistice Day.

Weekly Photo Prompt: Peek
I planted flowers beneath the moon
and all my hopes and dreams came true.
I’d do anything for you
dig them back up.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Rounded
We know what happened yesterday
we know our present stint
but what shall come tomorrow, we
have not an ounce of glint
Perhaps that’s for the better, thus
we live life as bestowed
no worry of what if’s and how’s
just watch as it unfolds.
For isn’t it a grander scheme
eyes upward toward the glow
to cast anxieties aside
and let the worries go?
Weekly Photo Challenge: Glow
On a scale from from one to ten
where do you fit in?
On a scale from high to low
which direction do you go?
On a scale from left to right
undisturbed or too uptight?
On a scale from A to G
what matters is the harmony
Whatever range in which we fall
Quite the keyboard are we all!

Look left, and maybe you’ll find …
… the best kind of pedestrian – protective and kind
If you can’t find the window into discovering your true self, make one!
Then maybe you will find your inner child.
