I Hear Spring Calling

in GEMSlast month

Harken back
From the past, mayhap, some time ago
Emerged the loveliness
Once and again
From a point of splendor
Revealed the softness, the loveliness
And took my breath away

(¸.•´ (¸.•' Beauty is certainly a soft, smooth, slippery thing, and therefore of a nature which easily slips in and permeates our souls.
Plato, Lysis


Don't be ashamed to weep my friend
'Tis your right to mourn the loss
Of love and all it means
The water of the tears flow
Flowers, trees, and fruit cannot be
But to run in the sunlight, for pure delight
A wounded heart will heal in time
The memory of lost love is sealed inside of me
For comfort
Truth be told.

And so it shall be spring, That time of year when we feel the most, especially, the caressing touch upon our heart, as I weave whispered words between the spaces.


All I have are my words, armed in my mind, written in pen, stand by stand. Oh, yes. Still by hand. It has a different feel. Altered not by keys, backspace, and delete, I write, erase, tear it to pieces and start all over again. And again.

It’s my way. I walk out to the deep end of the page and dive right in.





The Naming of Cats

The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn’t just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I’m as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.

I see beauty all over you like always. Thanks for this beauty @dswigle. I miss seeing you at the Market. I hoppe to see others share their market experience today on #marketfriday.


I promise to get back to it soon, Sam! Work has been too busy to keep up with it, but, I think that will be ending soon. People are still keeping up with it and I should at least put the bird up, shouldn't I?

Thank you for taking the time! I always appreciate you!! Have a blessed day!

Wow! A cat must have three different names! What happen if someone has nine cats!! Running out of names!!

Hope spring has already started to bloom there! Lots of spring flowers soon!

TS Elliot, the poet wrote that one and I thought it was awesome for #Caturday and then I just keep using it. I think it was a play on his three names!

Spring is beginning to bloom here! Yay!!!

I ran out of name a long time ago! :))

T.S. Elliot, one of my favourite poets during my college years. I didn’t know he liked cats! LoL

So glad spring has arrived! 🙀🎉🎊🍸😻

I had no idea he did this one until I was looking for a cat poem!!!

Who knew? :))

Through primrose tufts, in that green bower,
The periwinkle trailed its wreaths;
And ’tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes.

The birds around me hopped and played,
Their thoughts I cannot measure:—
But the least motion which they made
It seemed a thrill of pleasure…

-William Wordsworth
For you, my dear! I have to borrow words!

Oh, lovely!!! At least you borrow the best!!! xoxoxo

Maybe Spring is calling to you, but when I called out all I heard was Old Man Winter saying "not today Jose".

Like the mouth of a ready writer
Ink with uniqueness of word usage
Encoded message with right thought
Spring arises
Thoughts be controlled
Circumstances not happenings
Spring arises

Thank you! Very nice.

Its really nice Spring nature photography.

Thank you so much for the kind words!
