Garden of Inspiration

I walked in the cemetery.

The ponds are free of ice

but it is still cold.

A book was nailed to the tree.
I am sad for the tree and the book.

I am seeking inspiration.
It feels good to be walking.

Little Pond

I walked up to the little pond
this afternoon.

The last time I was at Cave Springs
the pond had ice and snow was in the woods.

It was cloudy when I walked with a slight breeze.

I looked for the ducks and turtles.
I hope they return.

I hope the Heron comes back too.
I could hear the Robins in the woods.
Soon Spring will be here,
very soon now.

Down the street

I was sitting on the deck listening to the sounds
of the roofers next door.
Their hammers were loud as they removed the old roof.
Three men produced a steady drumming.
During a break in their work and from a distance
I heard the answering drumming of a woodpecker.

I decided to take a walk down the street.
I decided to look for signs of spring.

Daffodils are coming up.
In another month they should be in full bloom.

My neighbor's Blue Spruce was exceptionally blue.
The tips of the branches shimmered in the sunlight.

This spinning wheel has been on this porch for over thirty years.
The new owners kept it right where it has always sat since I have lived
in this neighborhood. I look at it often.
I want a spinning wheel. I want to learn to spin.
A new friend said she will teach me. She has two spinning wheels.
Next Tuesday I am going to her house.
Next Tuesday I will sit and hopefully spin.

Walking in Texas

I am home from a long drive.
Texas is a mighty big state.

We drove 2,767 miles!
I am posting about my trip on my Holiday Blog.

Please join me for a River Walk in San Antonio, Texas.
I walked many miles too!
