reverb10: day 4. wonder. it was easy.

today's prompt?
how did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year?

and then i held out my hands to catch the magic.

i painted a blue room with golden honey,
i followed the owls,
i sat with the night
and slept with the moon
and walked barefoot on blossoms dropped from trees,
pink and white and lilac tickles.
i floated on water hot with the july sun,
danced under snowflakes blushed with the dawn,
laid my hand on the heart of a cat's last day.

i caught it all.



  1. I'm so glad you asked!

    I'm afraid to. But maybe I will. Someday.

  2. oh this feels just right ..thank you as always you have touched me today

  3. Blue and honey are the best together. Gorgeous image.

    And thank you for the visit, and link! :)

  4. words that sing louder then any song. yet it is all in a whisper.

  5. what i caught from this is tears in my eyes...



  6. So full of wonder when catching it all. I am so happy you were there and noticing. Your words are beautiful and sing to me.

  7. This is a good, thoughtful post and that is quite a meaningful list you have made.

    For me, a roadtrip with my mom and older sister through the rugged and beautiful Gaspesie region of Quebec (it was like stepping into a painting) and meeting with welcoming French Canadians and other travelers along the way, had me thinking that I was so lucky to be alive to experience that.

    PS: That's a gorgeous skirt you have on!

  8. you did catch it all, life in all its beauty and sorrow and joy and wonder. in your always beautiful way.

  9. And I am so glad you did. Oh goodness, Debi, this is so beautiful. So full of wonder.

  10. This is so very you.
    And did you? Dance under the stars?
