Birds and Blooms

Geese in Yard    For the past week, spring has shown signs of turning into summer.  I can see it through the geese and goslings in my yard.  These little ones are losing their yellow tint and beginning to get longer necks, a tell-tale sign of growth.

This bloom blossomed on the east side of Jim Thorpe, displaying its full radiance and color in a short-lived existence.  With the rain that came this past week, I wonder if it remains.

The moment my camera captured these birds and blooms, time stands still.  Sometimes I wish those moments would remain.  But they don’t.


Flower @ Jenn's     While the goslings and the blossom with disappear, the beauty and feelings that come with these pictures won’t.

A segment in a book titled The Path: What Chinese Philosophers Can Teach Us About The Good Life (by Michael Puett and Christine Gross-Loh), it asks ‘What do you do on a daily basis to gain that feeling (of goodness)?

My answer is easy:  I share the beauty I see so others may enjoy it, too.  I want others to see and create a world they love around them, a world of goodness, peace and beauty.  For now, I do it as often as I can. I’m learning to follow my passion more often because it brings me a feeling of peace.

What would your response be?  Please share.
