You, the magnificent oak
with arms outstretched
Holding me with your
power and strength
Always protecting me
from those who would harm
Yet this encompassing love
is marginalizing and isolating
Keeping me from
those I love
You left your splinters
where I cannot remove them
They lie there under skin
Clearly visible yet
irritating and inflaming
Your mark left on me
for all to see
Until I am jaded and listless
Sapped of my strength
Taking this splintered love
to the death

Good Morning! Here is another Eyes Wide Open post featuring some photos I took this week while out running. They were all taken on my iPhone.
Hope you enjoy them and have a great Saturday!
A young Doe coming out as the day starts to cool down
An Ibis in flight
One of Nature’s benches in the park!
Another crazy mailbox!
A lovely place to sit and think
A pretty combination of grasses and purple flowers
This is what I came across this week while out and about in nature. As always all photos are taken with an iPhone.
Enjoy your Saturday!
Palm Trees with Earrings
Pretty Lilcac-Blue Clematis
I see a face in this dead Palm tree
A group of Ibis on the trail
An insurance company would call this an “attractive nuisance”. I could easily have stolen these delicious looking mangoes
Keep your eyes open, you never know what you will see!
Eyes Wide Open – Week 2
Here are a few photos taken with my iPhone while out running. I’m making a concerted effort to capture pictures of things I would normally not stop and take in. There is inspiration everywhere in beautiful nature. My intention is to post some photos at the end of each week.
A big thanks again to Cyranny’s Cove and her After Eight Moments for the inspiration to begin this project. She has some great photos so be sure to check them out.
I would love to just sit on one of these very
low hung branches in the shade
What a great oak tree to have in your front yard!
I saw this Blue Heron just paddling in the pond
A beautiful sunset over the Bay
Enjoy your day and keep your eyes wide open!
