I shot these photos this morning in my forest behind my house.  The mist was just beginning to lift.

This one is of the moisture dripping off of the branches.  I love how the bark is peeling back off of the branch and the silk threads of a spider’s web between the limbs.

I looked up and saw these turkey vultures high in the tree branches.  They just sat there and posed for me.

I took these photos last summer when I was in Florida.  I found these pretty bright yellow wildflowers along a nature walk near the water in Kissimmee.

Grief

Daily Prompt:  Constant

oceangrief

I wander around
This big house
Still looking for you.
I have so much to tell you.

You went away
So suddenly, I had
No time to say goodbye.
You couldn’t help it
I know.

Grief is my new partner.
Keeping you present
In my heart and mind.
I miss you.
How do I get over
This pain?

I can’t let you go
No matter how much
It hurts.
There was still so much
living for us to do.

The anger, the sorrow,
The loneliness, the emptiness,
Have become my
Constant companion.

They have become
Like an old friend.
One I can depend on.
One I can sit with
And cry.

I pray that one day
I will reach acceptance,
Maybe even understanding.
Until then, I put
One foot in front
Of the other,
Take one day
At a time, and
Do the best that I can.

Wanda
