You were so distant
I forgot you were there at all.

It’s funny how life is.
How the people you should feel closest to are often the ones furthest away.

I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
― Edna St. Vincent Millay
Why do we no longer crave the simple pleasures in life?
For me, I can’t think of any better way to spend a Sunday afternoon…
than just lying on a hill, in a field of flowers with quiet eyes, drinking it all in.

“Spring in Gościeradz”, 1933
There’s nothing I love more than to open all my windows on a windy day and listen to the leaves rustle in the trees.
What about for you?
Listen closely to the wind,
it’s the sound of the leaves in the trees,
dancing and writing beautiful poetry across the skies.

Sadly, it’s much easier to create a desert than a forest.

What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.
― John Steinback
Excerpt from my diary:
This morning I awoke to this―the bitter return of winter!
A large ice storm had pummeled our city bringing spring to an abrupt halt.
I found these words of John Steinback’s swirling in my head like the unwelcomed snow in my yard.
With a sinister grin, I smirked at Ol’ Man Winter through my frosted windowpane and muttered under my breath…
“Your unleashed fury upon us this weekend will only make the returning warmth of spring (summer) that much sweeter!!”
