Deep in her heart she knew she was a princess,
and when she stood at her castle window
gazing over the morning woodland,
she felt the thrill of belonging to a kingdom
so wondrously breathtaking.
Before the fruits of prosperity can come,
the storms of life need to first bring
the required rains of testing,
which mixes with the seeds of wisdom
to produce a mature harvest.
~ Lincoln Patz
Hidden in a rocky corner of the forest
the voice of the waterfall first bids me come;
then pause and listen –
while its peaceful thunder drowns out all my noise.
Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island
looking for boats to save;
they just stand there shining.
~ Anne Lamott
I thought I had planted tomato seeds, but somehow
I got a rainbow of sweet garden candy instead!
Reluctant to say goodbye to summer’s fading light ….
A day in the life of Sadie Snail – 9 pm:
Sadie sighs a deep sigh of thanks for her day
as she basks in the last rays of the setting sun.
A day in the life of Sadie Snail – 7 pm:
After a rowdy supper of barbecue frog legs with her cousins,
Sadie returns home. She enjoys the evening’s quiet coolness
while she waters her veggie garden.
