Beauty Day 107

Find one beautiful thing every day and take a photo of it.

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.


 

Beauty Day 107 First Ice Cream

we shared an ice cream cone today

from Maggie’s ice cream shop

we will never forget the walk in the rain

and the sprinkles on the top

the little girl singing all the way home

skipping and hopping down  the block

Beauty Day 106 Prayer Warriors 

Those daffodils

they won’t give up

prayer warriors

of the spring

they blare their horns

shout loudly

when no other

flowers abound

thank you daffodils

for reminding me

to keep my eyes ahead

to not take no

for an answer

The thermometer

and cloudy skies

discourage

when long times have passed

but your bright countenances

keep prayer and hope alive

Beauty Day 105 Seattle Western Sunny Side Up 

sunny day

throughout the sum

of all the daylight hours

Seattle’s western sandwich

puts gladness in the bank

early morning walkers

out to catch a brew

joggers strollers

cyclists 

children young adults

laughing shouting

having fun

some playing

with their dogs

rain behind and rain ahead

this day will see us through

Beauty Day 104 Developmental Stages

Little girl in tutu

tumbling on the floor

as chaotic as your petticoats

who will you grow to be? 

sometimes yes sometimes no

never in-between

laying out your boundaries

for all the world to see

I as your gramma

just want to squeeze you tight

my days are few yours are many

independence is your right

when I wait with patience

give you all your space

you come around with gentleness

to give a warm embrace

Beauty Day 103 Roosters Crow in Cold Seattle

silly willy daffodillies 

calling out the dawn

impatient buds, frantic

pushing down the barn

“Wake up! Wake up! You sleepy heads!

The business day has dawned.

All the world will pass you by

as you take your final yawn.”

Beauty Day 102 Sun in Seattle 

Sun in Seattle

–like shade in Sahara–

more beautiful far

than the dull gray norm

this change brings detail

depth of focus

multiple colors

caffeine for the eyes

So here’s to the sun!

more sun, more brightness

’til hearts now wearied

seek rest again

Beauty Day 101 Daddy and Daughter 

it’s beautiful to watch a dad 

be mommy to his daughter

not that mom herself

isn’t around–she is

and does a terrific job

but daddy’s not afraid

to give a bath

change a diaper

and take the little one to bed

it’s beautiful to watch

the daddy’s heart melt

and learn and grow with love

cuddling her in the firm way

that children also need

this daddy gives his daughter

affectionate respect

unknowingly acting as model

for later lovers in her life

a daddy who loves his daughter

teaches discernment

for all her needs

Beauty Day 100 Tribute to My Constant Friend

a constant friend is someone  

who never gives up on me

someone who’s sure

whose mind’s made up

we’re in a forever thing

someone who is waiting

and ready when I call

someone who doesn’t anger

when I don’t call at all

I have this friend

his words are wise

to him I gladly sing

I’ve kept your word

I’ve done my best

 I give you Day 100!

Beauty Day 99 Winter’s Demise

Birds chatter playing tag

shake raindrops from empty branches

crows act as referee

hawking out the score

this new life will not wait

for the long, cold rain to end

bulging, bursting, pushing

spring enters the world

Beauty Day 98 Mt Rainier

 

Rainier impresses

yet not alone–the foreground

threads frame, bow, applaud
