2010


my heart bows to the passing of 2009
like the setting sun
which baths the world in tender
vibrant color
wings of light unfold
gliding into 2010
what will each day hold
certainly a heart
that honors
a sentient
life
~

To all my friends in this wonderful blogging realm
I wish you a year of dreams come true
may your path be clear
may grace fill your journey
may joy fill your days
may vitality be yours
wishing you the courage to honor
the whispers and wings of your heart
Happy New Year!

  8. I've enjoyed "seeing" through your consciousness in 2009, Tammie. I'll let you be my spirit guide for 2010! Please tell me about the second photo - I've looked at it for a long time - I can see the feather but what else? (PS I like the way you fashioned your first poem to "point" to the second image.)

  45. You were absolutely right! It was the 365th post, and the last one in 2009.
    It was illustrated by a self-portrait from a beach in Porto de Galinhas in Brazil. I also wrote that the winter is not really my season. I prefer sunshine and moderate heat :)

  66. Your exquisite sunset over the ocean reminds me of Gleneden near Lincoln City in Oregon--we spend time there every year...and each time we are there the sunsets are just as you have captured.

    There is something so wild and untamed, beautiful--in a sunset over the seas. It changes moment by moment--and the ocean claps her hands.
