"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"! Laura Ingalls Wilder

the birds of the air...

Quietly free, riding on currents of after-noon
Watching the world below from a birds-eye view
The sun playing across backs that hold-up clouds
As wings dip and rise in accord with storms a-brew


  1. Wonderful.
    You are so multi-talented.
    Makes me want to be a bird.

  2. I like it!
    Isn't spring a good time to pen poems? I think so, too.

  3. Lovely pair...the photograph and the poem. Thank you for sharing your inspiring creativity!

  4. So beautiful! Lovely blog; I'm a new follower!
    Anne ♥♥

  5. You captured that feeling of a storm "abrew" perfectly, Debbie. And so does your photograph.

  6. I like it, I like it!

    Thank you for the kind wishes, Deb.

  7. Lovely way to start the day here.

  8. Hi Debbie! I came back to ask for dog pictures. I love poms and your pom is so cute (or do you have two?) I hope your holy week has been very special and meaningful. Sending love your way, sweet friend.

  9. Ohhh we have had a TON of birds around here sense the snow has melted. I love love love watching birds. What kinds of birds do you have visiting?

    Blessing and ((hugs))

  10. First, I wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog! Love this photo and sentiments; I find myself watching birds all the time. It seems they have a lovely life up there in the clouds.

  11. I woke this morning to find that you had snuck in during the night. I was as delighted to find those words as I just am, finding these birds flicked across your sky. I have been going through a manuscript - that and working on photo projects and learning to make epub files for Amazon - all of this sandwiched in the cracks between children showing up and making things happy, if complex. And I read a novel. A real one. I get so behind, reading the people I feel connected to. Eternity is going to be wonderful, but if you subtract evil and danger and politics from this life, it's a pretty fine banquet of blessings - just not enough time to do every blessed thing.

  12. beautiful thoughts... beautiful words... beautiful photo...

  13. Sometimes I think I would like to be a bird.
