Beauty Day 172

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 172 Backyard

My friends’ backyard

is the prettiest backyard

I have ever seen

Mike is a landscaper/gardener

and now that I mention it

how strange…

every time I visit

he is sitting back relaxing

yet he alone does all this labor

mostly folk art

no classes no lessons

just a natural love

for beauty and color

finding ceramics, dinnerware

broken pieces of tile

he smashes–creates anew

creatures and birds

architecture and seas

while growing plants and flowers

is his specialty

talking birds participate

from their safe house just beyond

Mike’s a wonder

as is Claudia my friend

who prepares a meal fit for royalty

from their garden just below

what makes these people most special

is their love

for everyone

for me

for you
