And then...There was you

in #photographylast year





And then there was you. It’s true.
Drawing my heart. Close.
I can never forget.
I’ve known you forever. And yet.
How is it? We've just met.



Sometimes, life doesn't go where I want it to, people don't say what I want to hear, I don't ever seem to have enough time... and yet, somehow, all is well in my world. I don't need perfection in life, I just need to enjoy each moment for itself.


Come closer to me, I can nearly touch your thoughts
Dressed in shades that don’t exist, things that may, but not anymore
Washed in stillness, wrapped in peace
Welcoming you to this silent retreat
Then
I hit pause and wait, wait, wait

I close my eyes, just to hear your voice, whispering the words. And then. He loves me, it’s true, and it need not be said. I feel its presence. I feel its stead.
Yes.
I love you far too deeply. A love from deep within. No end to its beginning just loops around again. But you are right, it’s scary deep. And so…I keep my guard, hoisted way up high.
I keep aloof. I leave it inside.

A flower. Always. This picture is dedicated to #ThursdayGreen #ColorChallenge by @Kalemandra, who colors my world. Every. Single. Day.

Of course, my mother always told me that if I didn't have anything nice to say, say nothing at all. So, I won't talk about HF21 or the health of our economy. Or politics. Or the price of steem.

¸.♥´¸.•♥*¨) Let the sun shine in on your life
So the joy may touch your soul

(¸.•´♥ (¸.•´ ♥

And just like that, this post is over! I hope you enjoyed this prose-ridden slice of words. I promise to bring you #MarketFriday tomorrow as a special treat. LOL As always, I wish you an amazing day and thank you for stopping by and giving me a read.

Thank you for visiting my post 💖 Because of you, I come back to post again and again, I am encouraged by you, for the time you take to visit, comment or even upvote. For all of these reasons, I am eternally grateful. Don't ever forget what a wonderful world we live in, people. Let's hold hands around the globe and make this earth really spin. Some days, it is not as easy to see, how wonderful it really is. Kindness counts. Wherever you go, whatever you do.


I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,

"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

warsan shire

Oh I love your prose mixed with your gorgeous flowers, wow no one can do it like you. See this right here, oh yeah, this is why I was always your biggest fan! Passionate words and passionate photography. Indeed you are the best!

That horse deserves a carrot for that shot!

Oh, you are so over-the-top awesome with those words. No wonder you are my biggest fan. I let you get away with it.

Seriously, thank you for the sweet and kind comments, always. I want to thank you for taking the time to come over and say hi, leaving such wonderful words behind.

Wait!!! I took the shot! I want a carrot!

!tip

Well don't you just drive a hard bargain. Sure sure why not, you get a carrot too. Heck I would go all out and buy them both. Yep 2 carrots from the old man, now that is the best you are going to get coz I can't afford anything more :)

Oh, geez! I wouldn't want to break you! :) Although, better watch what you promise! Have you seen the price of produce???

Through the roof. Don't they know it's summer?

Well you know I have a heart of gold, just none in my pocket. But you, dear, are well worth any price. And Henry too, of course. After all, he is easy on the eyes ;P

Ha! That's because you keep it all locked up in your safe or in a hole that you dug in your back yard! LOL

So, yes! It is not in your pocket. That was a brain teaser, right? ;)

Henry really is a pretty boy. Lots of love for my boy.

Well Henry is ok but you are not too bad yourself ;) :D

Hehe. Oh, poor Henry has just been demoted! I won't tell him!

Beautiful flowers, Denise but the horse photo is priceless. 😂 Love the poem and your wonderful words. 💕

Hehehe! He is a wild pony out on the island of Chincoteague... I'm thinking he had a lot to say, wouldn't you? Thank you so much. You have such a kind heart and words to match.

Always love your comment. Have a fabulous Friday!

I gotta ask, what WAS that horse up to? What did you say to her/him/it? Inquiring minds might want to know. Like, mwaaah. Beyond horses giving us the nay, I'm STILL entirely intrigued by your phlower fotos. Not sure what it is. Maybe I have a brain cloud, but I'm pretty sure it's real. Just downright agog and amoked. Hope your Thoisdy is going well. Cheers (Oh, how I used to LOVE that show...)

Haha! My Thoisdy went great! Now, on to #MarketFriday! Yikes! Already. Wasn't it just Friday yesterday?

Awww, I think that is the kindesst thing anybody has said about my flowers. Thank you. That is so sweet and I do love to try to pair the words and photos. Although, there was no real pairing with that pony! LOL

He looked like he was giving somebody what for, didn't he? LOL Thanks for stopping in and giving me the kind words! Have a great Fry-day! It is going to be hot as you know what!

Reading your posts is always such a pleasure, and this is no exception but it is also very touching to read and opens up ones emotions

Thanks for being such a great Guide for SteemUSA !tip

I am so glad you feel that way, although everyone used to dislike when I did any kind of prose. I think I made people uncomfortable, so I leaned away a little bit from it. Well, I hope you are having a great day, mine has been all taken up until this moment.

Oi!! What a day!

Thank you for being a great Guide for SteemUSA!

!tip

Sorry to hear your having a crazy day and thanks for the !tip :)

I hope you day has ahmed down a bit now and you get to have a good relaxing weekend
I love the prose you share with us forget those that seem to dislike it, if they dislike your prose they must have issues I love each and everyone of your posts :)

Well, you know, that was just me whining. :) I am off and running for more photographs this weekend. Hope it isn't so hot out! We all have thousands of pictures, but, none that will do.

I'm glad you like the prose. I do know it isn't for everyone, and of course, I shouldn't take it personally. In fact, I really don't. I have read some prose that I scratch my head and wonder what the heck it means. So, I get it. LOL

Thanks again for being such an awesome friend.

The odd times my Mind goes on a wonder in my Posts although not prose I am sure it has many people scratching there heads

We have a Kick off Summer Event this weekend i may take a stroll down and check out :) other than that will be taking it easy I think

Oh, it sounds like a photo op to me! Taking it easy sounds like a great idea. Of course, you won't ... but, you can pretend. :)

I am actually getting better at taking it easy sometimes I can sit on the couch and watch a show fir half an hour before thinking of an excuse to get used and do something lol 😂

Oh!!! A WHOLE half hour??

Thank you! Frangipani, that is what it is, a beautiful tropical flower. I dialed up the saturation a little bit, but, they are so vibrant, you usually don't have to.

I am glad you liked the post! Thank you, always! You always leave the kindest comments! Thank you and look! The weekend is upon us! Yay!

You must really be a poet and an author!
Very nice read! Thank you very much.

Noooo!! Not at all! I just like words and to play with them. Thank you for the kind words! As always, I wish you a good night!

Thank you for your generous support!
I think you must have been an author or poet in one of your past lives!

Do you really think so? If that is true, I would be proud!

My pleasure!

All soft and sensual, then you got me laughing out loud at the horse! That second flower is truly stunning, but then again they pretty much all are. Looking forward to seeing what goods you share for the market tomorrow! Though how is it Friday already? Not that I'm complaining, haha!

Ha! Isn't it always Friday? Or it seems like that, right? Imagine how I feel? LOL

Oh, I shouldn't have put that horse in there, but, I just couldn't resist! Animals are so expressive, aren't they? Oh, the flowers are a must. LOL

I hope you are having a great day! Mwah!
