Frog Prince

image

I have a book in progress with a working title “Did You Really Kiss Him?”
So far it seems to be a story that might appeal to pre-teens…we will see.
The other day my friend Steph and I were sitting on her front porch discussing the last “frog-prince”  encountered. She spotted this tiny tree frog perched right in front of us on the Hostas, and i got these pictures.
I told her about how this was only the second time I had actually seen one. The first time is a story in itself. (Which I will add later)
My question is this…”How many frogs does a girl have to kiss before one turns into a prince?”
Hope someone knows the answer to this and can clue me in since I sure don’t have any idea!

New Grapevine

Working with plants teaches many important lessons well applied with people…who should come first, before the garden.

New Grapevine

Just planted
Last summer
Grown so fast
Had to wonder
The full sun
Sand’s drainage
Ample rains
Place to grow
Spread out roots
Rich enough soil

Fruit formed
Fully rounded
Strong vines
Well supported
Nourished proper
Well started
Good genetics
Trimmed often
Whispered to
Prayed over..
All of the above
Applied with love

Free Yourself Up

Freed Up

Stand on a beach
Mentally seen
Restless this shore
There on the edge
An endless ocean ahead
In limbs loosed widespread
Skills honed for challanges
Feel those waves roll in
Creation brings new beginnings
Hear this crash and roar
Know they break rock
Wear mountains down
Over millenium in persistence
Power corrupts even the toughest
Creates sand…
Tumbles shells, and pebbles,
Over time into rubble
Makes fine particles
Broken down, elemental
As elements, we can be remade
Reborn each morning
Become more useful
Freedom allows us…this…
Anything
The mind knows not otherwise…
Unless you tell it so
The difference in time
Past feels like present
Project into your future
All you can dream
Let it be all you can see

Imagine the change has come

Arrived already with bells on

Practice any new improvment

Til it is a habit you may keepwpid-img_20140324_120709.jpg
