Two Views and A Poem

23 Feb

I love this time of year when standing in the hall on a sunny morning I have two views of the Tete a Tete in the garden, one through the kitchen to the back garden and one through the dining room window to the wall garden outside the kitchen.

Down the hallway through the kitchen, long zoom

From the same point in the hallway, through the dining room

The following lovely poem came my way today and I asked the poet if I could use it here tonight. Thank you, Becky, for allowing me to share it with my readers. . Always listen to the trees and ‘breathe.’ There’s a wonderful tree in Trelissick Gardens that we and friends like to hug. I shall be very glad to get there again in a couple of months.

    Somehow I wasn’t able to leave a commit on your next post Evening Sky with the bean soup. Nothing tastier than green split pea soup. We make it every week …. winter, summer, spring, fall.
    You wrote about closing the curtains. Sometimes we’d like to close the curtains on the troubles of the world, but we don’t. Thinking about the people of Ukraine too. A blogging friend from Poland appears occasionally. Concerned about his family too.

      So much of the poem resonated with me, the being ‘good’, the pleasing of everyone else and , at last – being able to breathe….. 🙂

    Adore the poem.
    That last stanza . . . says it all!
