a gathering of kindreds

A gathering of kindreds. April 2013 moon cloth.

Kindly green person in my garden.

April 2016 moon cloth.

Dandelions in the garden wondering where their bee sisters are.

Bowl of full moon goodness.

First hibiscus blossom of the year.

Weathered tree stump, a spell the earth has cast.

And lastly, this quote that explains everything about are the spell the universe has cast. ~Phyllis Curott

And you my friend are a breath of fresh air for a tired, hurting soul. Coming to your home, your beauty fills me. Thank you. I think I had that same April moon fabric, once upon a time :)

Life has loveliness to sell
All beautiful and splendid things,
Blue waves whitened on a cliff,
Soaring fire that sways and sings,,
And children's faces looking up,
Holding wonder like a cup.

Life has loveliness to sell,
Music like a curve of gold,
Scent of pine trees in the rain,
eyes that love you, arms to hold,
And for your spirits still delight,
Holy thoughts that star the night.

Spend all you have for loveliness,
Buy it and never count the cost;
For one white singing hour of peace
Count many a year of strife well lost,
And for a breath of ecstasy
Give all you have been, or could be

-Sarah Teasdale-1917

That weathered wood is remarkable! Such age and texture and interest in its surfaces.
We've had clear skies here so the moon stood high and proud, thank goodness I can still see it! I will miss it in time.
I recall one evening as a teenager looking up at the moon and the skies were thronged all a round it with stars, crunchy snow under foot and we were out in the country away from street lights.
Sadly today the stars are still there I've no doubt, but my eyes cant see them all. The main ones I can still , but those smaller, farther away ones that once I could see, are now lost to me.
Lifes like that.
