For Fun, Photo Story, Poetry

Come, float your hands over the top,
releasing the aroma of papery poppies & lavender flowers.

Sit with me for a spell
and we’ll barely notice as minutes turn to hours.

Or find a trail
and in peaceful beauty, wander along,

Until perhaps you find your son
gathering you some green-stemmed love.

A field lush with solitude begs
you to blossom or bloom

Or lazily graze
upon a hillside of grassy plume.

Come here, bend down low
and watch your heart soars & be blessed.

Now gently roll over onto your belly
and take a little time for a lovely rest.

Here is a good reminder–before you go:
gathering your kinfolk would be best.

Ah, there he is
under the tree’s shade, sitting calmly upon the ground

Quietly looking for ways
to spread God’s heavenly seeds around.

* All photos taken one week ago at a local lavender farm. My son and I ate our picnic lunch, picked some flowering lavender, met the lovely owner, and enjoyed some rest.

* Here is another post with additional images from that day.

holy experience
This post is part of Ann’s quiet look at resting

* Okay one more thing, it took me two hours to upload my images today.
Anybody else having issues with blogger?
Considering giving them the heave-ho-merrily-I-go
(to another blog hosting site).
