Texture Rich Restaurant – Tuesdays of Texture

Texture rich environment

Fills my curiosities

DELIGHH

 

As you can see, there was texture from top to bottom…everywhere you looked.  Because the restaurant was so full, and we were with guests, i couldn’t get a few of the elaborate fish tanks and a few other wicked cool textures….but you get the idea!

What’s in your world?    Show me!

You can also see more when you hop on over to Narami for more delightful textures.

Have a GRAND week.

More cool Textures Winter Wonderland

Some more wicked cool wintry takes.
Sometimes snow is like frosting; it makes everything prettier!

(These were from last week.  This week is much warmer.)

If you have some textures you’d like to share, pop on over to see Narami – De Monte y Mar)

Here is some of our contributions so far.  If you feel inspired, add it to the comments, and I will add you in!  Hope you are living poetry and enjoying the New Year!

TAKE TIME

take time to be grateful
take time for smiling

Take time
to be of the earth,
let it nourish you
soak its sweetness in your bones

 
Take time
To be of the water
Let it drop on your tongue
And quench your insatiable thirst

Take time
To gather around the fire
Let family and friends
Warm your heart and soul

Take time
to fill your lungs
breathe in mindfulness
Let out peace

Take time
To just be…

 

Melting Impressions

When I pause
and take my time
to pay attention
to those things presented
to my mind
I find
as I grow older
left out more often
in moments colder
fewer stand by me
shoulder to shoulder.
As numbness creeps
from fingertips
it seems at times as though
I’ve lost my grip.
Once precious memories
begin to slip.
Heartfelt refrains
of Auld Lanng Syne
each passing year a spirit
a little more or less refined
reaching, reaching for that
touch of the Divine
Glancing back at footsteps
melting in the snow
impressions not indelible,
their value I do not know
and I would have someone tell me,
One who took the time
to know
before I go
Despite my flaws
that I tried
not to lead or follow,
but stand alongside
I would like to believe
I will be missed
when it’s my time
for my last sigh.

Take Time
To close your eyes
And listen
To a distant wind

 

These are my collaborators so far.    Feel free to come by any time.

Take Time – Part 2

Yesterday I was so inspired, I kept on writing for our collaboration.  Here’s the second take on the anaphora, “TAKE TIME.”

Take time to absorb children’s laughter
Let their joy
seep in your spirit,
Re-remember

 

Take time to inhale the juicy fragrances
Of the world,
Let them
Delight your senses

 

Take time to savor flavors
All around
Let them dance
On your tongue

 

Take time to touch the faces and hearts
Of those you love
explore
New faces and hearts of  the lonely, broken, down trodden

 

Take time to witness beauty
And gratitude in the world
Let grateful hearts
Unite

Live poetry

Take Time COLLABORATION – Happy New Year!

Happy New year beautiful people!

happy new year 2016

Well my friends, it is a New Year, and what a great way to begin our year with a collaboration.    For this one, we are using the anaphora –

                                                     Take Time

What I love about this open ended topic is that we can write endlessly from any point of our lives.  I can write a stream of consciousness without stopping.   No rules!       Add your lines in the comments, and I will put them together to make a group poem.  No deadline…write what makes your heart sing.   What ambitions, hopes, dreams, goals do you have for this bright beautiful year?   Will you make more memories with your loved ones?  savor time?   Take some chances or risks?

I CAN’T WAIT TO HEAR!!!

 

Here’s one of my contributions:

TAKE TIME

to be of the earth,

let it nourish you

soak its sweetness in your bones

 

Take time

To be of the water

Let it drop on your tongue

And quench your insatiable thirst

 

Take time

To gather around the fire

Let family and friends

Warm your heart and soul

 

Take time

to fill your lungs

breathe in mindfulness

Let out peace

 

Take time

To just be…

 

 

Namaste my friends,

and have a peaceful, joyous New Year.
