the process of magnificence

"But to the moment
might i say,
Linger Awhile,
So fair art thou!"
~ Goethe ~

the process of magnificence
{to be captivated by creativity,
in all its veritable possibilities}

to dance a minuet of kindness
in which rhythmns swirl colourfully

& gentleness falls like lace
Todays twirls mellifluously!!!

snail mail...

when the distances between us
are shortened, & kindness

emerges tangibly

in little packages

of postcard hymns,

& pocket thoughts

carried by handcut birds

Thankyou Elk for a beautifully rainbow-filled collection! i love swaps!!! :)

castles in the air

"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them. "
Henry David Thoreau

rare & golden

although i love mornings, the stillness of rising sunlight, the hush before the bustle, the warmth of approaching day,

im not a morning person, much more of a night owl. but last week i had a beautiful morning walk,

uncovering misty mornings

to forage through the days delights

the chill of the air began to lift with the warmth of golden rays

the heavy rain dissipating

lovely flowers budding{wattle?}

trees rising straight & tall, their long roots blithe

& everywhere, the opportunities of the coming day settling like wild flowers

to be ready for passers-by like us

so i bundled some up,

to send to you...Today opportunity is bouyant!

a pink night for your pink day;

Since we experience Saturday in the future here in Australia, i like to collect pink moments from my pink saturday, then share them with you for yours :)
Tonight was Riverfire. Its an annual event where the city convenes on the banks of our river to watch a spectacular show. Tonight was:

pink buildings

delicate pink petals

sprinkled across the sky

& glimpsed under bridges, above rooftops, through buildings, & shining over the canopy of the trees

as we opened the curtains of wonder

& pressed forward

through the excitement{roaring F111s soaring above us, the heat from the fire trailing them able to be felt on the ground, the crackle of popping fire crackers, lighting up the sky, the thrill of enthusiasm palpable in the air, as the crowds looked to the sky awaiting the adventure}

& left when the waters were calm{our beautiful river}!

& this was a special moment from yesterday

when a beautiful pink bird had a visit in our yard!{i found this picture of one showing its crest nestled among these exquisite portraits}

Today is an effusion of pink{& a stunning pink cake!

Have a
