I changed my leaves

All the lives we ever lived and all the lives to be are full of trees and changing leaves

Virginia Woolf

I danced as often as I could

The once red leaf, the last of it’s clan, that dances as often as dance it can

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

I noticed the purple flower

Flower of this purple dye, hit with Cupid’s archery, Sink in apple of his eye

William Shakespeare

I bloomed in the sunshine

A Flower cannot blossom without sunshine

Max Muller

I enjoyed the golden sunrise

The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside.

Maud Hart Lovelace

I saw the broken light

The rays of happiness, like those of light, are colorless when unbroken

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I watched the water and pondered

Life is like a river …. it flows on and on. We live in a moment, and then it’s gone, never to return. Youth turns old. Only memories are left of the days we first waded into the stream. Life is ever-changing. Enjoy the moments.

I kept the light


Deep in their roots all flowers keep the light.

Theodore Roethke

I saw the dragonfly


Today I saw the dragonfly

Come from the wells where he did lie.

An inner impulse rent the veil

Of his old husk: from head to tail

Came out clear plates of sapphire mail.

He dried his wings: like gauze they grew;

Thro’ crofts and pastures wet with dew

A living flash of light he flew.

Alfred, Lord Tennyson

I bloomed

Where flowers bloom, so does hope.  – Lady Bird JohnsonDSC_4508-2.jpg
