The world suffers.
The patio is
not to shatter
like human lives
across the globe.
The dog snores
without a care.
the Blue Angels.
A warm breeze
winds its way
in between us
and the roses.
The world aches
is far removed

Thanks for your kind words, Barbara. Enjoy your Sunday. 🌷
Beautifully penned dear Lauren… My glass will be chinked this evening along with yours from our garden swing.. As I chill in the warm this evening has to offer… We create our peace from within… Whether it be our garden’s four walls, or our hearts..
May we continue to absorb that Peace dearest Lauren..
Love and Blessings my friend 🙂
Thanks, Sue, for your beautiful words. I thought of you last night when we enjoyed the peaceful ambiance of our patio. I agree, we create our peace from within during these unsettling times. Love and hugs to you, my friend, and have a relaxing Sunday. 💗🌼
Enjoy your week also Lauren 🙏💖
Thanks, Sue! 💜🧡💜🧡💜🧡
Beautifully written, Lauren. I keep myself sheltered in my peaceful tiny corner of the world. Out there is way too concerning.
Thanks, John, and you’re smart. 🙂 It’s scary out there!
Reblogged this on John Cowgill's Literature Site.
Thanks so much, John. You’re so kind!
You are very graciously welcome.
Well stated, humans are fearful but nature continues.
Thanks, Ian. We have to find our own place of solace to balance all the unrest in the world. We need to stay informed, but it’s wise to avoid getting overwhelmed, while also doing what we can to help even in a small way.
Beautiful and so perfect for these times we are living in. 🌹
Thanks so much, Drew. I appreciate your kind words that warm my heart. 💜
Beautiful thoughts Lauren. There is definitely a lot of aching going on in the world out there and its good to have the reminder even though we are faced with it everyday.
Thanks, Allison. It’s good to stay informed, but it’s also healthy to disengage now and then to find our own inner peace. I hope you’re doing okay…💕
I am good Lauren, very little internet connection at the moment so not able to use my laptop. Will soon be sorted. 🙂
Good to hear and good luck! That can be so frustrating. 🙂
Nature can teach us so much, when we are willing to listen! There is a lot of pain and suffering in the world, it is important to disconnect from that and reconnect within. Many Blessings to you Lauren! xoxo
I agree with all you wrote, Lisa. Thank you for chiming in and many blessings to you, as well! 💗🌼
Thanks, Lauren. 😊
It certainly has been a strange year so far, and we’re still not sure where we’re going.
You’re right, Binky. I think we have another year before things begin to calm down…take care!
Beautifully written Lauren. Bittersweet. Right now it’s definitely a dog’s life. ❤
Thanks, Debby, and it sure is! Our dog is a perfect example. Hope all is well. I’m falling behind on reading (again). Sigh… 💖😊
Don’t sweat it Lauren. We seem to all be ‘catching up’ 🙂 ❤
Thanks and isn’t that the truth! 💕
True, and beautiful! You have a way with words. Thank you! xo
Thanks, Resa, your words made my day. I need to catch up on reading, but I’ll be over soon. Hope you’re doing well! 💗
…and art is the best shelter!
Thank you for this, Lauren!
Oh, yes, we can’t forget about art. So, nature AND art are the best shelter. 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed, Marina. Sending hugs and love! xoxo
Poetry is art, so I found shelter in your words! 😘
I gathered that and thank you! 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍
Thank heavens for the little islands of peace that nature offers us. A lovely vision, Lauren, during these scary times. 💗🦋
Agreed, Betty, and thank you! We have to find what brings calm and contentment during these surreal times. Sending much love to you. 💕🌷🌻
