Meet Me By Moonlight…Alone…

no stress today…just a little quote rehash…

Meet me by moonlight alone,

the autumn moon
And then I will tell you a tale
Must be told by the moonlight alone,
In the grove at the end of the vale!
You must promise to come, for I said
I would show the night-flowers their queen.
Nay, turn not away that sweet head,
T’ is the loveliest ever was seen.
~J. Augustus Wade


…a little poetry by the moonlight…alone, with you…

Nightblooming Cereus Cactus

Queen of the Night

My tale my dear is for you to see
A special bloomer under the moon’s light
To give night pollinators, like moths and honeybees–
a rare glance over at the aromatic white petal,
Queen of the Night–
Blooms just ONCE on a summer night.
Hardly a plant, and sometimes known as
The Cereus cactus–
She is the loveliest and majestic queen
Ever to be seen
By moonlight alone.

On Display: Autumn…colors changing…flowers richly blooming and slowly bidding goodbye before winter spreads its blanket of snow…leaves falling from trees…hay bales and glorious, rich pumpkins ready for display decorations and pumpkin pies!

On Display: Meditative words…

“We cling to our own point of view, as though everything depended on it. Yet our opinions have no permanence; like autumn and winter, they gradually pass away.” ~Chuang Tzu

A Gentle Creative Moment

In the gentleness of a creative moment, may an unexpected surprise float in like a gossamer feather tickling itself into the undiscovered places of your imagination.

creative moment, nature, feather, unexpected, imagination, surprise,

In memory of Daria Donnelly: A wife, mother of two children whose life was cut short by multiple myeloma. The above quote was gently written from Daria’s deathbed–                                                                Rest in peace, Daria. (1959-2004)

 Where do you find your gentle creative moments?
