Happy tall Black-eyed Susans that a friend and I swapped when dividing our different plants a couple of years ago. They are now blooming in great abundance this year. They love the hot summer weather…  Gorgeous wildflowers! ~

Quilting

 

Not Quilting Enough, Drama

Need a little motivation? The Flying Geese quilt block behind these words was much easier than I thought. They ended up in a couple of large blocks for a sampler lap quilt. When life seem to get a little intense, as sometimes it will, the sewing room I have found is a good place to escape… at least for a while. Happy Quilting.

Black and White Photography, Hummingbird, Photography

The Department of Natural Resources released a statement recently about a yet undetermined cause of disease that is causing sickness and the death of many songbirds across several states, including Indiana. They have also included robins, blue jays, cardinals, and starlings in their request. They have asked everyone to not feed birds and remove feeders and birdbaths after cleaning with 10% bleach water to help prevent the spread of the disease. They have also requested that this be done with hummingbird feeders also. I was worried that the hummingbirds might not return next year as they always seem to ‘demand’ their feeders and let you know for sure if it is empty. However; it is not the feeder they are returning to, but their territory. We have taken ours down as requested. The birds are still coming to the flowers and granted are looking around for their easy handouts. But they also still look healthy, which is a win. You can find out more by checking your state Department of Natural Resources.

Happy birding and thank you for visiting. ~ terre

From the valley floor,

they entered the virgin motherland.

Climbing steadily up the sides of red rock

till they reached the narrow mesa

closest to the bright lights of night,

the land closest to the Sun.

With knowing they came to be

 in their own Sacred Place.

Poem – In His Beauty

Sunday Reflections

~ In His Beauty ~

What am I to the Lord –

He that has provided for

every wildflower of the earth?

I am like that wildflower

that springs from the rocky cliff.

 

He sends nourishment for it

to open and lift its face towards him.

It grows and flourishes till it has spread

over the face of the barren cliff.

 

He sends the rains so it can live.

If he did that for a wildflower–,

What did he do for me?

 

He gives me his word, so I can believe.

He lets me feel his spirit

and I know that he loves me.

 

He will guide me and let me find truth—

for in that truth—He died for me.

 

As he loves the smallest wildflower

that seems to grow from neglect—

The Lord also loves me.

Poetry ~ First Snow

Snow Today

First Snow

Gentle rain turning

to soft downy flakes,

each intricate and unique.

 

Sounds of the world

muted in the deep.

Solitude calling us

to slow down,

memories we keep.

 

Soft downy flakes

turning all to white,

except the dark bark of the trees,

standing sentries

along the steep banks

of the creek. ~

Places Traveled ~

Pearl S. Buck, Birthplace, Hillsboro, W.Va.

“Write a novel if you must, but think of money as an unlikely accident. Get your reward out of writing it, and try to be content with that.”  ~ Pearl S. Buck, (1892 – 1973).

Pearl Buck was a prolific writer and the first American woman to win the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1938 for The Good Earth. She was the daughter of missionaries and spent the majority of her formative years in China as well as her early adult life. Her Chinese name is Sai Zhenzhu. She wrote extensively in her novels about the plight of women, the poor, and social injustices.

This image was taken while on a rural road trip through West Virginia. I wasn’t expecting this to be here, so it was a great surprise! The stately rural home is now a museum. It was not only an interesting experience, but educational, and the staff was so welcoming. The natural beauty of this part of West Virginia is so breathtaking and is a journey I would love to take again. Oh, and don’t forget to stop along the way for a slaw dog, a menu specialty throughout West Virginia.  ~

Poetry: The Echo

tch c2019(10)

As I lay sleeping

familiar faces do I see.

These long forgotten fragments

of people once so dear to me.

 

Some sneak in

with more than an impression.

I never think of them

when I’m awake,

that would be an obsession.

 

These visitors who once

our lives briefly crossed,

we all took our separate paths.

Now they come gently in the dark,

a friendly, welcome haunt.

 

I see me as I remember me.

I feel the warmth of the noon sun.

Someone ever so kind has stopped

to help me with a gentle embrace.

The gesture is so real.

 

The wildflowers sway in the breeze.

Even the weeds are alive I see!

It is happy here as I dream.

I’d like to stay forever,

please don’t change a thing!

 

Then the picture changes.

I hate to leave.

Another face from a more recent time,

has come to rescue me.

 

In the abyss of my mind,

those souls traveling years apart

can meet and share company

within my heart.

 

When I regretfully awake,

whatever became of them?

Did they get lost

or did I?

 

I hope they’re happy.

I hope they know

however much,

I love them too.

I wonder though,

do they also dream of me?
