Heading to the top

The last day of Beckys Square Top Photo Challenge

This is an extra #SquareTop as I had only one photo left in the folder I didn’t use, I hope you don’t mind plus I didn’t use this one song and it had to be included as it’s a top song.

Walking around the garden

Tracy’s Corvid 2020 Weekly Challenge 6

Remember previous conversations about hearing the Australian Ravens around my place but not being able to get a good photo. Well a couple of days ago, a Raven was casually strolling around the garden in the late afternoon. So as not to frighten the Raven off I took a few photos through the kitchen window as the casual stroll. Yesterday, the Raven was again walking around the garden. Perhaps it does a garden stroll everyday and I just don’t see it.

Here is the allusive Raven walking around the garden.

Moon Goddess

I have posted some poems lately and have received lovely comments. I have posted this one before but it is close to the anniversary when it was first written.

This time is for Patrick’s Pic and a Word Challenge #230: Moon


The moon
full and bright,
in my garden
casts shadows among the trees –
I thought I saw
you there
dancing –
a woman of beauty,
a moon goddess.

Moonbeams casting
landing on petals,
shining on my skin,
entering my being
enveloping my heart
making it race,
distracting my thoughts
so I think of nothing
but her,
dancing in my garden,
lighting my life.

I shall sit here –
awaiting her come near
that I might steal a kiss,
my arms
encircle her waist
drawing her to me,
to feel her warmth,
her goddess fullness –
a moment of passion
to believe that
the dancing in the shadows
is not a dream,
a dream of beauty,
a dream of
my moon goddess –
casting her beams
throughout my garden
