RDP Tuesday: My Garden – A Poem

This post is written in response to the Ragtag Daily Prompt Community. The prompt for Tuesday February 19, 2019 is Garden.

“Tell us what garden means to you or what garden you dream of. Put it in a poem, a photograph, a story.” – drkottaway

Here are some flowers in my garden and a poem to tell what garden means to me.

My Garden

My garden is a sanctuary, a place to retreat

A daily dose of therapy I get for my soul and spirit

I eagerly touch the soil with bare hands when

The gardening gloves are right at my reach

As I trim the plants and pull the weeds

Dense fog lifted out of my sight

Clouds and the clutter of the mind

Parted and cleared out of the way.

My garden is where I go in the morning

Before starting any routine of the day Read more

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: #25 Reflections

This week the theme for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is Reflection, from Patti Moed.

The photos I selected for this post are reflections of water I admired during different trips near and far.

This is Puente de Alcántara Bridge over the calm river, Toledo Spain.

I took a photo of the yacht during our whale watching trip at Newport Harbor California.

On the same day of the whale watching, we had dinner at the beach and watched the sunset.

Our family went to China and visited Guilin. This is Reed Flute Cave with different color lights revealing the rock formation and the reflections from the underground water.

I have been living in southern California for 40 years. Last week was the first time my husband and I went on a cruise to see the Holiday Lights. All the homes, their yachts, cruise boats and restaurants by the water were decorated with Christmas lights. It was a treat from my daughter!
