Kassia waits

Last year my daughters presented me with this lovely art doll named Kassia, made by Christine Alvarado of Dubuhdu Designs.

This year I was able to order one myself in an after Christmas special sale.  Her name is Melia and will be arriving soon to join Kassia, the beginning of what I hope will be a fine collection.

Someone Likes me!

Someone likes me!  Or at least my garden.

Luckily, I still have photos, since someone came and stole plants, statues, and pitchers from my little foursquare home.  They just scooped them up, barely dropping any dirt, and carted them off.  These are the before pictures.  The after pictures weren't taken.  Too sad.

One Day

That was the life span of this perfect peony.  One Day.  With no lament or even knowledge of its fate, it burst forth in wonder and shared effortlessly with the universe.

As I wait for you

As I wait for you
The birds all sing in chorus
And sparkling drops of dew
Lie trembling there before us

As I wait for you
I will not think of waiting
I'll don my sweetest hue
Cool air appreciating

As I wait for you
I'll see there is no waiting
I'll rest here in the light
And drop anticipating
