A Special Thank You

A special thank you to all of my friends who stopped by here with your thoughtful comments and wishes when my computer was damaged. I did appreciate your support, I left a message for you in the previous post comment box. My computer has now been repaired and is working, so hopefully it will remain this way. It is nice to be back, it is not much fun looking at a blank computer screen. I love my computer as it is my link to all of you. :)

Sincerely, Dianne. xoxo ♡

Computer Problems

Hi everyone, all of my lovely friends and followers. I may not be around for a while, due to a violent electrical thunderstorm overnight and a storm surge my computer has been damaged. I don't know the extent of the damage but it seems I may have lost everything, I cannot get it to open at all. I am posting this message via a friend's laptop to let you know that I have not deserted you. I don't know when or if this problem can be repaired. I am missing you already.
Sincerely Dianne. ♥

Please Wait For Me ...

Please wait for me
until the white of Winter melts
into the streams of new life
and steals the cold away...

I will be there in Springtime

I will be there by your side
The trees will be budding
And sweet scented flowers
adorn the meadows faire...

The scent of soft grasses

will fill the morning air
Amidst them we will walk
holding hands, without a care
So much to enjoy together
so much to share ...

So look for me in Springtime

'neath your newly leaved trees
there amongst soft branches
leaves dancing in the breeze
I shall wait there 'til you find me
a garland in my hair...

Please wait for me...look for me...I shall be waiting there...

Some Flowers for my friend /t.

I picked these flowers for a dear friend of mine last Saturday, which, incidently was the only sunny day we have had here for quite a while; it is raining again today.
Since you have requested some Summer flower pics and some of my Summer garden dear /t., I thought you might enjoy these too. I hope the warm colours will brighten up the white of your Winter landscape.
The flowers are a new gerbera daisy, the petals are two-toned, yellow near the flower centre and changing to orange towards the tips; a flower from my grevillea which is called 'Peaches and Cream' and some flowers from Clivia Nobilis which are bell shaped, orange, with yellow tips. Enjoy! :-)

Earth's Song

Whilst searching for myself at dawn
I was thrice blessed this very morn
For I found a flower I thought had gone
there amongst the weeds it shone
Its white petals will soon be gone
I promise you I will take more care
so that when I look next summer
you will still be there ...

I listened to the songs of birds
and thought about my wasted words
Magpies warbling just past the dawn
a lovely way to greet the morn
A fledgling chick calls for its Mum
both reunited in the morning sun ...

Walking barefoot on sweetest grass
water bubbling in my path
Running in between my toes
thoughts of childhood
Forget my woes
Winding my way through leafy bowers
such a lovely way to spend the hours
Finding new shoots along the way
welcomed blessings is all I can say ...

And now has come a balmy breeze
it moves with music through the trees
The leaves are dancing to a rustling tune
and in the sky I see the moon
Birds are singing their evening song
frogs and crickets in unison
All around a pulsing sound
I feel the coolness of the ground ...

The air is filled with the scent of flowers
How I love these dusky hours
All this set against a sky of blue
ever deepening in every hue
Once again thoughts of you ...

And in the distance an owl's call
still many sounds at night fall
Listen quietly to the chorus of all
For it is the Earth's song after all.

Each Time We Must Part

Tears fill my eyes
Each time we must part

I have not had enough of you

Enough to fill my heart
I need so much more of you

We're only at the start
I look in your direction

As you leave and walk away

Please turn around and see me

I want you to stay

Our kiss is not enough
o take this sadness from my heart
I cannot bear it

Your absence breaks my heart

Please turn around and see me

And walk back this way
Please come back to me

Take this emptiness from my heart

A few more precious moments
To last whilst you're away

And ask you this question

Please,why can't you stay?

To Spring ...

The brooks are flowing
With sparkling water
Fresh from Winter's melt
Along the grassy borders
And rippling over stones
The freshness can be felt
Sunshine warms the meadows
To release their sweetest scent
The trees and hedgerows
Are blossoming anew
With verdant buds and leaves
Leaving behind the dullness
Of their long Winter rest
Spring adorns the fields
With a myriad of flowers
Everywhere they bloom
Fields,hedgerows and bowers
Such beauty to be seen
And gone is Winter's gloom ...

Amidst the Golden Light

Perhaps in another life
In another place in time
You will return to me
Amidst the golden light
I shall be waiting there
With hope in my heart
In the crisp chill of the air
Of an Autumn afternoon
We shall walk together
On a path of golden leaves
Falling all around us
In a cathedral of trees
Hand in hand together
With love in our hearts
On and on forever
Never to part ...

A Little Way ...

A little way past the gate
Beyond the garden wall
A lovely place to escape
I hope to see it all
Past the hedge
The stone ledge
Where daisies seek the sun
And lavenders grow against the wall
Such a fragrant garden edge
There beside the path I find
Red roses still in bloom
Lasting past their Summer blush
As Winter will come soon
Basking in the Autumn sun
They release their sweet perfume
Sweet petals, so soft to touch
Such a lovely afternoon
Other flowers begin their rest
And await their Winter sleep
But the roses remain in full blush
Such a lovely memory to keep ...

A Time for Everything

Once I thought that for us
There would be a time for everything
Words we shared, I treasured yours
Moments together in time
Days spent together in sunshine
Nights beneath moonlit skies
Perhaps one day, a time for love
So much still to share
But sadly time does not stand still
It races away so quickly
And takes with it my dreams
I can hardly catch my breath
As I try to catch the hours and hold them
Trying to stop them from slipping away
And what we have shared
But I cannot capture the moments
And hold on to them, or you
For you are slipping away
And taking with you my light
I am losing you and cannot stop time
I will never hear your words again
All I have left are memories
I wanted more time for us
But all hope is lost
As I fade away in this loneliness
Alone in this prison of darkness
Now there is no time for anything
And such an empty sadness fills my heart...

Slowly the west reaches for clothes of new colours
which it passes to a row of ancient trees.
You look, and soon these two worlds both leave you,
one part climbs toward heaven, one sinks to earth,

leaving you, not really belonging to either,
not so helplessly dark as that house that is silent,
not so unswervingly given to the eternal as that thing
that turns to a star each night and climbs –

leaving you (it is impossible to untangle the threads)
your own life, timid and standing high and growing,
so that, sometimes blocked in, sometimes reaching out,
one moment your life is a stone in you, and the next, a star.

Poem: Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926)

Words of Love Unspoken

I closed my heart
Not to feel you
Or the love that welled
Inside just for you
And my eyes shut tight
Not to see you
To quell the desire
That I felt in your sight
Turned my face
So I could not want you
Your written words
Had touched me so
To hide the tears
Of heartache
The one's that so often fell
The many hours in silence
Alone without you
Sadness my only friend
And finally with resignation
I closed my mouth
not to whisper
The waiting words of love
I wished to tell ...

Yesterday's Flowers

Yesterday's flowers
Were gathered with care
Fragrant beauty
In the soft morning air
Sparkling with dew drops
In the sun's first light
Petals and buds
Nature's delights
Yellow for friendship
White for pure love
Shining so brightly
Sunshine from above
Their beauty is before you
No more words can I say
Their perfection delights me
In this wondrous bouquet ...

Emile Verhaeren Love Poem

The still beauty of summer evenings on the
greenswards where they lie outspread holds
out to us, without empty gesture or words,
a symbol of rest in gladness.

Young morning and its tricks has gone
away with the breezes; noon itself and the
velvet skirts of its warm winds, of its heavy
winds, no longer sweeps the torrid plain;and
this is the hour when, without a branch's
moving or a pond's ruffling its waters, the
evening slowly comes from the tops of the
mountains and takes its seat in the garden.

Oh the infinite golden flatness of the waters,
and the trees and their shadows on the reeds,
and the calm and sumptuous silence in whose
still presence we so greatly delight that we
desire to live with it always or to die of it and
revive by it, like two imperishable hearts
tirelessly drunken with its brightness.

Emile Verhaeren - Belgian Poet - 1855-1916

Garden of Dreams

I came to meet you
In the garden of dreams
In the last dying hours
Of the night
When the stars
Are just fading
And the moonlight
Is waning
Standing there lost
Between day and night
But as the sun rose
I could not see you
In the brilliance
Of its golden light
In my thoughts
You're always with me
Forever in my heart
But if I should
Want to touch you
You're out of reach
And out of sight
I wonder
Were you there?
In the shadows
Away from the light
For I know
I could not see you

I could not feel you
Just the cold
Of the retreating night ...

How Gentle The Heart ...

How gentle the heart
Who nurtures love
Love that is broken
And lost its way
And guides this love
Over darkened paths
With a light that glows
From an inner warmth
To find its way
To a waiting heart
One that has hoped
For a chance to give
To mend and grow
And let love live ...

Another Day ... Un autre jour

Another day
Another time
Your words mean so much to me
I wonder if you will ever know
Just how much they touch me so
They give me hope, a small reprieve
Another day to believe
That I shall read your words to me
In another place in time
Precious memories from the past
I hold them in a gentle heart
I live to hope another day
When your kindness
Takes away the grey
And your words shall bring
Some sunshine
Into all of my tomorrows ...

Words Beyond the Page

Thoughts of you come to me
When I think of days gone by
Many summer suns have passed
Since our words danced on the page
Like the beauty of rambling vines
Our thoughts became entwined
And a garden of sweetest words
Soon blossomed beyond the page
Your words were sincere and tender
And I responded in kind
How I miss those sweetest days
When I hoped you would be mine
But not all dreams last forever
Just memories from that time
Now our garden has sadly wilted
Neglected beauty left behind ...

Nocturne ...

Now let the day
Just slip away
So the dark night may watch over you
Velvet blue, silent true
It embraces your heart and your soul

Never cry, never sigh
You don't have to wonder why
Always be, always see
Come and dream the night with me

Have no fear
When the night draws near
And fills you with dreams and desire
Like a child asleep
So warm, so deep
You will find me there waiting for you

We will fly, claim the sky
We don't have to wonder why
Always be, always see
Come and dream the night with me

Though darkness lay
It will give way
When the dark night delivers the day

Pathways ...

Understand, I'll slip quietly
away from the noisy crowd
when I see the pale
stars rising, blooming, over the oaks.

I'll pursue solitary pathways
through the pale twilit meadows,
with only this one dream:
You come too.

The Viewless Atoms of the Air

The viewless atoms of the air
Around me palpitate and burn,
All heaven dissolves in gold, and earth
Quivers with new found joy.
Floating on waves of harmony I hear
A stir of kisses, and a sweep of wings;
Mine eyelids close --"What pageant nears?"
" 'Tis Love that passes by!"

Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer, 1836-1870, was a Spanish post-romanticist writer of poetry and short stories, now considered one of the most important figures in Spanish literature.

Memories of Meadow Flowers

Warm memories
come back to me
of another place in time
I have often thought
of those Summer days
when the sun would always shine
Gathering wildflowers
in the meadows
their fragrance in the air
Walking amidst their beauty
white, soft pink and yellow
colour everywhere
Wearing my old straw bonnet
a rose upon the top
a dress of finest cream calico
a ribbon adorns my hair
Flowers in hand
the bees understand
they are always willing to share
humming a song of happiness
as they buzz throughout the air
This is when I am happiest
days without a care
As I wander on through the meadows
so much beauty everywhere...
