A Moment to Shine

Purple Iris

Troubles drop away,
Luck comes our way,
That’s our moment.
Everything turns out fine.
It’s our moment to shine.
Trouble may make us blue,
But that fades to dark
When we feel the spark.

Note: I’ve had bad years, with rare good moments. And good years with few bad moments. My heart holds onto the good times. I hope yours does, too. This poem was inspired by my latest rejection letter, which was not a shining moment, but another opportunity. Every door that remains shut helps us find the right door.

Perspective Shift (Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge)

This winter changed my perspective on snow. It drew the line and emphasized that less is more.

Note: I enjoy these photos far more now that spring has arrived in full force. These photographs are presented as part of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge for this week: Perspective (Unusual Angle or Point of View). If you follow the link, you’ll find my blog post, Pairs, was featured in her post as a Featured Blogger. I am honored and delighted, Cee!
