Sometimes we feel the weight of the world upon our shoulders

Little mole hills turn into huge boulders

We worry and stress about how we look, do we look old

Have I adorned myself with enough  trinkets and gold

We worry about what other people may think if we don’t conform

We put on a mask and begin to perform

We worry and stress about incidental strife

But there are some in this world…who really

do not have an easy life!

My friend’s garden

Posted in Architecture, Nature, Photography, Poetry, Scenery with tags , on November 22, 2013 by randomrose

My two dearest friends spent years building their own home ready for retirement and have worked steadily in the garden ever since and this is the fruits of their labour in one small area of their heaven.

She sits quietly, we think… but that is not true.

She sits and chants softly to the various hue

Rise little one, rise and shine

Your colour is needed on the deep green vine.

Rise little one, rise and shine

Your pretty white carpet helps to define

The deeper hues of purple and blue.

Rise little ones, rise and shine

This is heaven, yours and mine.

 

 

 

She visits at night

mask lillies - Nov 13

 

She visits at night

before the moon does rise.

She visits the lilies

she is secret – she hides

her identity to one and  all

Only lily knows her secret call.

She comes to tell of a long ago past

When she herself flowered

And cast

Her perfume far and wide

On the wings of an angel.

When she was a bride…

She comes to tell of a long ago past…

I dreamed a dream

I dreamed a dream

I dreamed a dream of the weeping willow.

I dreamed a dream of still waters.

I dreamed a dream of peace.

I dreamed a dream…

Azalea

I am beautiful

I am  Azalea

Bits and Pieces I found

I was trawling through my photos looking for a particular one. Couldn’t find, still haven’t found it but found these bits and pieces taken in USA  with my little digital camera.

Sydney and Melbourne

My daughter lives in Sydney and I live in Melbourne.  She rang me today as she walked to work saying it was 36c and the bush fires were terrible in the Blue Mountains only about 72 km away.

In the meantime here in Melbourne which is about 8 hours drive or 1 hour flight it was 12c and hail stones.

I fly to Sydney often to visit my daughter and grandchildren so it always amazes me the difference in our weather.
