H a l l e l u j a h
and thank heaven
t h e   t h a w 
is  coming.
Thank heaven 
with every drip

January's grip

February's love


your joy 
will spill out from golden vessels 
of gratitude

overflow to others
and fill their cups.

But we know that winter will return

yet we cultivate and nourish

seeds of praise.

Anita! Is there a prettier picture than this one with the tea cup spilling out Pink Roses and Daisies? I LOVE THAT, it's beautiful. And I can hear the music! I loved everything about this post. I smiled at your words when you mention THAW, because this morning for the first time living in the mountains I saw a winter wonderland! It made me happy, and it was so exciting to see it all. It's supposed to snow all week!

This post is so special........and so are you, Anita. I will definitely come back this week to revisit it again.

love you,

Good Morning Lovely Anita,
Oh goodness this is a magnificent post! These photos! Your Poetry!
I am wondering if you froze the rose blossoms and petals into these delicate icy forms.
The gentleness of the tender petals combined with icy Winter is such an incredible contrast!
I love this so much.
Thank you for the gift of you, your poetry and photography.

Beautiful, I love the pink. I like the frozen heart. That is so clever. I did something like this with cranberry and oranges.

Such beautiful photos and uplifting poem. I feel inspired that the first blooms of Spring are coming as is the increasing light, but mostly because I received my second dose of vaccine this week and soon will be free...

Hi Anita!
Your photos always inspire me--- I have been working with watercolor mostly and your colors are so dreamy, your subject matter, captivating! Thank you.
For now, keep putting one foot in front of the other. Winters, where you are, are harsh enough and a great challenge during healthy, normal days... During pandemic? Next to impossible. Spring will glide back into our lives gently and won't it be dreamy when we can at once dispense of the mask! xx

Trim Life Keto said...

Find an exercise routine that works for you, eat healthy, drink lots of water, and watch as the transformation begins. My suggestion would be to have a workout partner, but when you start to plateau (either in physical ability, weight loss/gain, or overall health) and you haven’t reached your goals, consider mixing things up a bit. The weight loss detox may seem to be a fast and easy way to lose weight but it is a myth.
