Bear Grass

We've had a lovely week,
blue skies that release the warm scents of summer.

Bear Grass

flowers like bright torches
illuminated in sunlight
ignite the forest floor
drawing us to their beauty
also true
of you
a light
that shines brightly as you carpet the earth
sharing your unique qualities
precious and worthy
touching hearts
as you go



To see skies from others: Sky Watch Friday

  2. Awesome photos, but I'll have to agree with Guy; number 1 grabs my attention the most. Wide sky, leading fence through tall, green grass, very natural looking building, and of course the horse.
