Backyard Visitor

tch c2019(9)

I can feel and see the signs that Fall is on the way. But we’re still having the hot summer days, the last of summer. This backyard visitor is enjoying a summer bath. Might be one of the last ones before he takes off for warmer climes. Think I’ll just hang out on the porch and enjoy what is left of these warm days. Before you know it, the wind will blow, leaves will fall, and then snow will fall. Hope wherever you are, you see something simple today that makes you slow down, notice, and enjoy.

Thank you for visiting!

Field of Dreams, Dyersville, Iowa(1)The hubs recently surprised me with a road trip where I didn’t have a clue where we were going from day to day. We also have in our family sort of a contest to see who can get to all fifty states first. Imagine my surprise when we went here to see where “Build It and They Will Come”!  Plus, Iowa is now one of the three new states we got on this trip. This was a very fun and memorable trip!

Gardens

One of the worst mistakes you can make as a gardener is to think you're in charge.(1)

Loving these summer days. Just thought I’d show off the hubs wildflower garden that he sowed from seed two years ago and for the first time came up! We have blooms everywhere and everyday is full of new surprises! Gardens are one of the absolute best parts of summer, even for non-gardeners who just love flowers or fresh veggies. Hope your world is filled with both wherever you are.

Special memories just chilling with a refreshing drink, watching a beautiful sunset over the harbor and salt marsh grasses as the shrimp boats finish their day.

Shimmery glows of soft pink

and gentle hues of blue,

paints the calm at end of day.

Insignificant am I

Exploring

One of the funnest ways to spend time, is to go Exploring!

Do you dream of going somewhere big? Do you remember the joy of going somewhere new that you have dreamed about? While there are many places I would like to go and dream of going; I often find that time constraints, money, weather, or other obligations keep me from going everywhere on my list.

However; I find just getting in the car and exploring within a tanks drive from my home, takes me to places, people, sights, and yes —smells that are new to me. I love exploring and knowing what is to be found down a certain road, regardless of the season. Maybe I will find a covered bridge, or a new hiking trail, or at least one new to me. Maybe I will find Amish fried pies filled with all different kinds of delicious fillings and have fun talking with the people who made them. The excitement can be felt in the crisp, cool air as the leaves start to turn red and gold. Who knows where I will end, as I just decide to go!  What have you found on some of your explorations?

Poetry: Requiem for the American Worker

Requiem for the American Worker

I hear America crying

across the flatlands, hill and dale.

Embittered tears of weary souls

the beaten down, the proud.

 

American workers holding on

with a cry in their voice.

Fighting hard to not be counted

among the growing poor.

 

The waitress at night with a babe upon her breast,

The coal miner tired of his long rest.

The automobile worker doing her best,

The bakery is closing, the baker is next.

 

The bus driver without a human load,

The young black man never given a chance.

The hospital worker called off, worries how to pay the rent.

Telephone workers marching, out in the cold.

 

Voices, hands, and hearts

traded for those across the seas.

The small, American farmer

still fighting hard to believe.

 

I hear America crying,

as those “who have”,

with no remorse, no guilt,

build empires upon the workers backs.

Americans trying, trying, and trying.

I hear America crying.

Poetry: Seasons

tch c. 2018 (8)

                                                                  Seasons

Many seasons have passed

since we met.

Tiny wrinkles and creases

have sneaked in

to mark tiny paths.

Yet, when I look at you

I see you as you are now,

but I also see within you

the young lover when we met,

that time tries to hide.

But I still see and smile,

Many seasons have passed.
