Tune In

Can’t seem to find your way?
Be present in the day

World in disarray?
Be present in the day

Minutes slipping away?
Be present in the day

Untold pipers to pay?
Be present in the day

Fair hair turning gray?
Be present in the day

No time left to play?
Be present in the day

Nature bids you stay
Be present in the day

Overhead soars Jay
Be present in the day

Sunset casts its rays
Be present in the day

Ocean kisses bay
Be present in the day

Seize onto life you may
Be present in the day

Before death has its way
Be present in the day

 

Ragtag Daily Prompt – Salvage

Meant To Be

It’s no fluke it’s meant to be
The moon
The stars
The
Galaxy

It’s no fluke it’s meant to be
The lions
The tigers
You and
Me
It’s no fluke it’s meant to be
Skies of
Blue
And lush green
Trees

It’s no fluke it’s meant to be
Soaring birds
And
Buzzing
Bees
It’s no fluke it’s meant to be
A wondrous
Home
For all to
Share

Asking only
That
We
Care

 

Ragtag Daily Prompt – Fluke

Quote Trifecta

I have recently been tagged by both Anne Leueen (Horse Addict)
and Leigha Robbins (Leigha66) for the 3 Quotes In 3 Days
Challenge. My thanks to both!

I am modifying the rules somewhat by combining three quotes
into a single post. Also, I am inviting anyone who wishes
to participate in this challenge to do so.

My “go to” for quotes concerning the natural world and the mountains
in particular, is John Muir. I have selected three of my favorite Muir
quotes for the challenge.

“Going to the mountains is going home.”
“As age comes on, one source of enjoyment after another is closed,
but nature’s sources never fail.”
“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.”

Tree Plea

Decades of stars and sun I’ve seen
This is where I’ve always been

Battling wind and snow and ice
Time and again I’ve paid the price

My roots have firmly taken hold
I wish to stay here and grow old

Don’t make me go I love it here
To all of us this place is dear

So many of my friends have fallen
The Grim Reaper for me comes calling

Let me add another ring
Save me from the chain saw’s sting

If I could speak I’d be so bold
Proclaim my worth in ounces gold

Progress must happen I am told
Soon I’ll be felled for a new road

My fate is sealed that much is clear
Until that day I live in fear

I am a stately, regal tree
Don’t cut me down, just let me be

 

Earth Day – 2018

Hurry…Hurry…Fast…Fast

What’s the big hurry
Not so fast
It
Never pays
To be too
Rash

What’s the big hurry
Not so fast
Step out of
The role
In which you are
Cast

What’s the big hurry
Not so fast
Discover
life
Can be a
Bash

What’s the big hurry
Not so fast
Take
Some time to
Savor the
Past

What’s the big hurry
Not so fast
Life’s
Much more than
Amassing
Cash

What’s the big hurry
Not so fast
Show the world
You’ve got
Some
Sass

What’s the big hurry
Not so fast
Life isn’t a
Measly
Fifty yard
Dash

What’s the big hurry
Not so fast
In life’s marathon
Strive to
Finish
Last
