This Moment

i hug my cup in both hands as the steam rises from my tea

i look outside my window and i see life

intense green on the hillsides after the rain

flowers in their first fledgling stages of bloom

birds darting to and fro on missions only they can understand

not at all shy about expressing their happiness for all the world to hear

and cavorting with abandon as they take turns plunging into my birdbath

i sat down here thinking i would make a list of things to do

and didn't realize that this is what i want to do


  1. what FABULOUS pics!!!

    i am absolutely in love with the little bird taking his bath and getting all wet - so great Patty!!!

    i love that you are doing exactly what you want to be doing!!!!

    happy monday my friend!

  2. How absolutely inspiring .. all of it!

  3. Oh, these photos make me happy - especially the little bird shaking! I have been spending a lot of time lying on the floor in front of the patio door, watching the little birds peck away at the birdseed I scattered on the ground. It is so fun to watch them. I thought they would entertain Atlas, but they entertain me more. :)

  4. those bird bath pictures are AMAZING.
    love love love them patty.

  5. I would be truly honored if you gave your poetic advice on my blogs of poetry and follow them.

  6. your photographs are incredible. Each time my I scroll down a bit more to reveal another photograph my breath gets taken away a bit more. You are so incredibly talented.

    I wish I was seeing all of this blooming life around me. Instead everything is blanketed in white.


I would love to hear from you!!
