My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.


Wishing You a Happy Weekend!😊

happy sunny weekend

Looks like a nice one is on the way, here on Vancouver Island.

Hope your weather is cooperating, wherever you are.

I don’t know why, but daisies and sunflowers always make me smile.😊

What about you, any flowers that make you 😊?



The White Rain

It’s been another dry summer, here in BC. Hopefully some rain on the way this week.

The threat of forest fires still looms, as we reach the middle of August.

Hope you enjoy this “rainy” poem from the archives. And hope your weather has been good, wherever you are.

Wishing You a Happy Week!

My Poetic Path

Enveloping, encompassing….

it begins.

Touching more than skin and sight.

Seeping into the mind and soul.

The white rain.


More than reality, dreams,

or mere thoughts.

Beyond reason.

It takes over the moment.

Changes and shifts, the perception of the day.

Five senses,

now fully engaged.


Warm spring shower.

Icy needles of sleet, mixed with snow.


Gentle or forbidding.

The power to destruct.

More often to sustain.


The white rain.

It is, a state of mind.

Or lull in the storm.


a subtle part of nature’s fantasy.

July 1, 11 Nelson park pics 017

Hello again and HAPPY SUMMER!

I’ve decided to resurrect my two WordPress blogs, this one and also, Veggies, Yarns & Tails.

You can read all the details HERE.

I’m going to try for weekly posts and of course, back to more regular visits at my many favorite WordPress blogs.

For now, wishing you a great week and hope you’ll stop by again soon for new posts here and at Veggies…

It’s nice to be back!😊


Longing for Spring!

151Spring Fever has arrived earlier than usual!

We are having a very mild winter here on Vancouver Island but I’m still craving spring in a big way.

Can’t you just smell these lilacs? 😊

PS: On an unrelated topic, is the new, “improved” WP editor driving you crazy?

Why they keep changing things here that were working just fine, I do not know. This simple post is taking way too long to complete and is not formatted as I would have liked. I just didn’t have time to keep resetting paragraphs, color, bolding….

WordPress…IF IT Ain’t Broke, Don’t ” Fix” It!!!
