Take me to the place you go
to run wild, spirited and free.
Show me your favorite meadow,
your path to what feels like heaven
and the view that compels you to pause.
Teach me strength and grace,
to be noble yet humble,
and adventurous, but not unwise.
Share the secret of effortless beauty.
Don’t take me home ‘til you’ve looked at me
with eyes that touch my soul… then promise me
we can do it all again tomorrow!

Make a BIG first impression
Don’t work for PEANUTS
Be all EARS
Know when to put your FOOT down
Be GENTLE, no matter your size
Have big IDEAS

Out for a walk and what do I see?
This little face staring up at me!
Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Looks Like a Face
Morning light pierces
tattered edges of night ’til
darkness slips away
Birds begin to sing!
What once was stillness is gone
as dawn runs through trees
Within the old house
no one knows that shadows play
outside the window
A Haiku (for my poetry-challenged friends) is typically three lines of un-rhymed verse with five syllables on the first line, then seven, then five. Since I continued this Haiku from a single, to a double, then a triple; it is my response to today’s one-word prompt: Continue.
