I’ve felt a little drained lately. It seems I’m in good company, so maybe you can relate. When my well is empty, I always trust it will be refilled. And drop by drop, it always is.
A loon singing in the early morning mist. Drip Drop.
A fuzzy green fern unfurling from the ground. Drip Drop.
A red fox sneaking down the porch steps. Drip Drop.
A kind gesture from a loved one or a stranger. Drop. Drop. Drop.
I’m going to take a little break from writing The Simple Swan, but I will return. I leave you for now with the gifts of some other creative souls. I hope it fills your well, as it fills my own.
A haiku and watercolor by my sister, Melinda ~
A haiku by a reader, Cindy ~
They rise from the ground
After a long winter sleep
Like us in springtime
And one by my husband, Mike ~
You’re like an orchid
Simple, delicate, stunning
And quite beautiful
And finally, this week my talented friend Nikki included a poem I wrote in her video about living a beautiful life at home. I’m sure you’ll want to watch the whole video and follow Nikki on YouTube and Patreon at Inspired by Nikki. My poem Forever in a Day is featured at the 10:00 mark. Her lovely voice, painting, music and videography truly lift my simple poem off the page, encouraging me to heed my own words and focus on living a beautiful life day by day by day. §
