that I would come into this world a child of this earth
that I owe the moon and the night fireflies
my quiet mouth
and listening ear
and the rain my skin to lay kisses upon
that I would inhale the air
draw it deep
fill my lungs
and release with my breath
and grow a heart light with plans
bursting to know
that we are a piece of this clay
the plush on the petal of the wild sunflower
the minutes that tick with each passing hour
the sun on the way to the dark
and the light that results from its spark
Your photographs take my breath away. Thank you.
Thanks Irene. I have my camera on my hip at all times, so I’m bound to take a good shot now and then:)
I loved this post! Beautiful, Jessie!
P.S. Tyler said you did a good job at Business Challenge! 🙂
Thanks Annika. I did see your hubby briefly at Business Challenge and said hello. I had a good time talking with the kids. Hope you had a nice 4th of July!
Awesome – great pics!
Thanks Roxanne. Hope your summer is looking good and sunny!
Beautiful pics..esp. the wildflowers and prairie roses. Just got back w/ my oldest son and parents from Asheville, NC. We were gone 10 days but spent about 5 days in Va. w/ my brother and family. Hot. Asheville is a beautiful city w/ all kinds of walks of life. Even saw fireflies and haven’t seem them since the last time in Medora. . Nicole
Welcome home Nicole. Sounds like it was a great trip!
