A kaleidoscope of color, the hues of the surrounding sky make for an image that shines beauty on everything it touches, including my soul, oh, my soul! A profound part of this amazing world we live in. It had been raining, but, gave way to a kinder, gentler day to meander through the fields, seeing what Mother Nature offers up today.
"Don't miss all the beautiful colors of the rainbow looking for that pot of gold." - unknown
Whan you are living your day and this moment of indisputable beauty appears, right before your very eyes? As you are watching, the colors meld together, but only until they softly dissipate into the landscape, leaving only their memory behind. A brief moment, yet, it will stay with you seemingly forever, until the next one. Enjoy each moment for what it is.
It was before that moment that I was walking through the dampened fields, the darkness just beginning to lift when my eyes captured the stillness of my day. Laying quietly in the darkness, it was about to get noisy.
Let's step into the day for our #WednesdayWalk with @tattoodjay, even though I am breaking out early. This particular challenge is a great way to get out and shoot some photos, focus your thoughts, and see what you can see, giving in to a short distance to take a walk. Don't forget to look up and down, and all around. You never know what you might be missing! The picture below is in the same field as the last shot, but, it was three weeks ago and the change in scenery is stunning. Life has started and the growing season has started to wake up.You can see that early mornings at this time of year appear to be a tad wet, but, dry up when the sun appears. It almost always gives us the sun and shine we are always looking for.
I seem to be running behind. This would not be the first time I ask, and probably not even the last - but, I must ask. "Do you ever run out of time?" Is it fixable? Can it be? Is there an answer out there that I am missing? If anyone knows where I can buy some time, I will be forever in your debt. I cannot be the only one, for sure. How do you manage all of your days between work, play, family, and Hiving? Of course, balance is key, but, how do you achieve it? So tell me, do! How do you make it all work for you?
The morning is lifting an I follow a path of stones placed purposely to connect the two fields. The first shot is the same as three weeks ago, and the one below it is the current state of affairs. The rocks are left to give a little interest and perhaps charm to the landscape.
I think it succeeded. It feels peaceful in this quiet part of the day.
The walk has changed in a matter of weeks, the almost barren trees giving way to the leaf coverage. I find both of them beautiful in their own way. I can see the structure while it sits solemnly in the light of dawn, all the while the pops of color appear everywhere in the grass.
Almost as if the day opens up for them to enjoy. The cooler morning air is a nice change from the heat of the later day. Enjoying the green grass and sunshine on their back. The best of both worlds in horse life. Close enough for us to enjoy on a daily basis, yet, far enough away to give them the space they need. Tiny signs of life are all around us. Is it summer or winter coming to your part of the world? I have four seasons here and they are very distinct. Spring is definitely here and summer will be coming around the corner a little over a month. June 21st to be exact.
I like to walk along the fence line, down to the other side of the pasture. There is nothing to see except a stone fence and nature, but, isn't that enough? On those days when nature is my only companion, this is more than enough. Do you like walking alone or is it something you like to do with others? I think you can do both, but some days, I like to inhale it on my own.
It is always fun to take you along, singing my song... Respect nature and she will reward you with her beauty, for it surrounds you without charging a cent.
All I have are my words, armed in my mind, written in pen, stand by stand. Oh, yes. Still by hand. It has a different feel. Altered not by keys, backspace, and delete, I write, erase, tear it to pieces and start all over again. And again.
It’s my way. I walk out to the deep end of the page and dive right in.
As always, there will be flowers, forever and a day. There must always be flowers. #alwaysaflower - for me, for you, to color our world.
I want to thank @tattoodjay for hosting the #WednesdayWalk challenge! Show where you walked today, I want to see what you got to see. I hope you had a fabulous time and I think we should meet up here again next week! Until then, keep on smiling!! If you want to do the challenge, drop him a link on his #WedensdayWalk post so he can try to visit yours! Whatever your day looks like, it is worth a walk through it. You can't always have sunshine and rainbows, but, you can always have a #WednessdayWalk! And just like that, my post is done. I walked right through it today, so much to do, always and forever. Come back tomorrow and we'll do it again. Eclectic and true, from me to you.

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature’s changing course untrimmed:
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st,
Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st,
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
