Hope You’ve Enjoyed!
Much Love to All
from behind encaging ribs
washed by rain
scorched by light
…all just to be cleansed
of its aching pain..
to be soothed with
the kisses of your words
…to emerge from its hollow night…
divinely delicate and trembling
Warm Thanks to Lady Day of Just A Girl With A Heart & A Pen for permitting me to pair her wonderful and impassioned poem entitled, Passion-Flower with my feature image today. I was awed by her words when she posted it, and then set out on a mission to find this enchanting passiflora to photograph for this special post.
Hope you enjoyed!

sleeping desires into conscious awareness;
Only from there, may they be fulfilled.”

This beautiful and proud bald eagle (known to some as Sam) resides at the Quogue Wildlife Refuge. He was taken in by the refuge in 1988 after undergoing a wing amputation due to gunshot injury. He has been a cherished member of the animal sanctuary ever since. Although Sam cannot soar the skies the way nature might have intended, it is clear he has found empowerment and inner-peace at the refuge, surrounded by other members of the wildlife community, and his human admirers. Go Sam!!

The succulent sky
had not only clouds,
not only space smelling
but an earthly stone
flashing here and there
changed into a dove,
changed into a bell,
into a piercing wind:
into a phosphorescent arrow,
into salt of the sky.
This riveting narrative by Pablo Neruda is a favorite of mine. Hope you enjoyed it alongside today’s feature image.
Have a great today!
