~~ November ~~   2 comments

**************************

***********************

The room is dim.  Outdoors it is chill and damp. Steely gray clouds have eclipsed the light.

A seeming constant wind whips the trees, stripping them of their foliage until, at last, all

that is left is spectral limbs and branches.  Long since faded blossoms now drop from the

frozen and frost laden stems.  Now come the days of frigid rains, often spiced with a

mixture of sleet or snow, often both.  The sun and its warmth have retreated to a safe

haven in the south, not to return for months to come.  The sun will return infrequently

when threatened by nature’s wrath, but warmth refuses to accompany it.

***********************************

Just think, folks, it’s not even winter yet and I’m already this depressed !!!!!

*****************

I have sat in the light of a yellow moon with the sandman
And my heart has been touched by the flames.
In the early light of dawn when I arose
I saw my faceless fate clothed in the sun.
When I look at you,  the sunrise in your smile lights my day

There was a love story tied with ribbons
But there are still wishes I can’t answer
Only the heart, touched by the fire
And the deep eternal love still burning there
And never such words as these came from my imperfect hands
But from the soul of my being.

     Well, it’s been a short summer, but a longer time than I’ve had time to call my own.  What with a few short 2 day trips here and there, and projects around the house & yard, and….., well I never would have believed that grandkids could take up so much of my time!!!!!  Aside from the above, I’ve been fishing a bit…, and painting…., and doing a lot of readin’ and relaxin’, but not too much writing, as you’ve probably noted .  Other than being busy a lot, I’ve enjoyed it all.

A color pencil work…..

Well, the clock is pushin’ on toward midnight here and I should probably be

calling it a day before my eyes slam completely shut so………

OK, OK….. goodnight everybody !!!

Prelude to St. Patrick’s Day   4 comments

Many sites will tell you that the little trefoil known as the shamrock was once known as “seamróg“, pronounced “Seamroy”, meaning “little clover”. They also mention the fact that it is a very common clover that grows heartily in Ireland.

Many agree that the ancient Druids honored it as a sacred plant. The Druids believed the shamrock had the power to avert evil spirits. Some people still believe the shamrock has mystical, even prophetic, powers. It is said that the leaves of shamrocks turn upright whenever a storm is coming.

According to Lady Wilde, the shamrock “enlightens the brain and makes one see and know the truth“.

The ancient Irish Celts also revered the shamrock because it has three leaves, and they considered “3” to be a sacred number. The ancient Celtic Druids believed many numbers held mystical powers.

The three leaves shaped like hearts were associated with the Triple Goddess of Celtic mythology, otherwise known as the “Three Morgans”. The Triple Goddess represented the Triple Mothers, the hearts of the ancient Celtic tribes.

This Celtic tradition of honoring “3’s” continued in Ireland for millennia.
