Confession: I’m easily distracted by bright colours and shiny things.

Sometimes this can be good thing.

In this case, it led me to discover that Vickie Szumigala had nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award. I have often visited her site, but this particular post drew me in: Sunflowers…..Buds To Blooms. It displays a brilliant yellow sunflower from a variety of angles, which made it impossible for me not to take a closer look.

Vickie thanks for nominating me for this award!

As with most awards in our vast blogging community, there are rules. You must thank the person who nominated you and link back to their site. Done and done. You must also share 7 things about yourself (this is never easy for me); then pass the award on to 10 other bloggers and notify them of the nomination.

Here we go…

7 Things About Me

1. I don’t understand why people are mean to each other because it
takes much less energy and effort to be nice
2. I dance when I’m alone
3. I have supportive friends
4. I try my best to support my friends
5. I always carry an umbrella, but don’t always use it

The child
Inside me
Waits
Anxiously
For
You
To open
And
Become
The bestower
Of
The wondrous wishes


That
Play
In my dreams
Fidgeting for freedom
Which
Will arrive
When
Your
Blossoming seeds
Take flight
Like
Stars
Adrift
Across
Unending
Azure skies

Rain
Plays
At
Washing away
The dirt of life
One drop
At a time
Then
Builds
In to
Torrents


That
Stream
While
Being
Pushed
Down and sideways
By
Gusty
Directionless winds
Forcing
The wetness
To reach
Unseen places
Rarely touched
With
The purity
Of
Liquid
Freshness

How was it love
When
I rarely
Put myself in your path
To encounter
The warmth
That
Radiated
From
The glow
Of
Your presence

How was it love
When
Without
My awareness
Your wholeness
Became broken
And
I
In oblivion
Failed to sense
That
You
Breathe
No more

How was it love
When
I lost you
Never knowing
That
You
Ceased to cling
To this world
As
It raced
Through its orbit
Around
A star
Whose brightness
Could not
Outshine
You

Walking
On
The shady side of the street
Cools me
As
The clip of my stride
Quickens
Pumping
Blood
Through
My body
At
A rate
That
Would cause
Other liquids
To boil

While
The leaves
Of
Canopying branches
Fan
My head
As
They are stirred
By
The same breezes
That
Dance
Between
My thoughts

Not exactly
A yellow brick road
But
These stones
Are
Littered
With
Gold buds

That
Have fallen
In sacrifice
To make way
For
The full foliage
That
Will follow
And
Sway
Above
Us
In the glow
Of
Warm
Golden
Days

We must
Hold on
To
Optimism
Even
When
Hurdles are erected
Along
The path

That
Routes
Us
To
The fulfillment
Of
Our
Individual destinies
Which
Are
All
Linked
By
A collective desire
To
Succeed
