Happy New Year

happy new year!

as i was helping richard with outdoor chores today, i noticed the pink sunset through the slats of the old barn at the back of his property. curious, i walked into the barn and snapped the sunset through one of the knot holes in the barn wood. i thought it was a nice frame for the sunset.

my hope  for the new year is a simple yet abundant year full of good health, happiness, peace and love.

what is your wish for the new year?

    when worlds collide and the past returns all
    the trash our lives have thrown;
    somehow we survive
    a little weather beaten, maybe
    a little wind blown;
    so she smiles rings around me
    just like Saturn or a chandelier;
    damn these weeping hands
    these well meaning hands
    still shaking from the final sight of you….

  4. Thank you for your kind remarks expressing your delight at the rock on the log. I love your framed image of the sunset, where in the world was that taken, the rock was found in a forest in victoria, australia, summer smiles

    what an honor it is for me to have you visit and comment on my humble blog. this photo was taken through a knot hole in an old barn in the midwestern usa on a chilly winter afternoon.

    i’m so glad to have found your blog. what fun to follow you through your summer while i’m experiencing winter.

    warm winter wishes.
