Winter Retreat 2018 Peace Within

 Carpe Diem Winter Retreat 2018 - Peace


Winter Retreat 2018 Day 1


winter silence
snow blankets the ground
peace wraps my heart







Winter Retreat 2018 Day 2


winter garden walk
morning prayers flow 
peace blossoms






Winter Retreat 2018 Day 3


deep silence
world washed white
by winter storm






Winter Retreat 2018 Day 4


morning prayer group
tranquility and  friendship
fill the circle














Winter Retreat 2018 Day 5


morning sunrise
bathes the earth
in serenity







Winter Retreat 2018 Day 6 


winter moonlight
spills across my pillow
stirring good dreams






Winter Retreat 2018 Day 7


frozen stream
dreams of summer
encased within








Winter Retreat 2018 Day 8 


moonlit evening
we walk in the snow
holding hands







Winter Retreat 2018 Day 9  


dormant garden
bottle tree clinking
gentle tune






Winter Retreat 2018 Day 10


morning sunrise
brisk air refreshing
troubles fade







Winter Retreat 2018 Day 11


candlelight dinner
stir in the air
flame trembles





Winter Retreat 2018 Day 12 


grey skies
cold pierces the window
my soul aches








Winter Retreat 2018 Day 13 


blanket of snow
long blue shadows
grace the lawn






Winter Retreat 2018 Day 14 


walk in the pines
snow weights the branches
I breath deeply





Winter Retreat 2018 Day 15



snowball fight
crouching against the tree
tracing the bark

Tanka Challenge Prompt 49


Weekly Tanka Prompt Challenge - Animals and Sunshiine






clowder of felines
racing up and down the stairs
midnight till morning
kitties nap all afternoon
heaped by the door in sunshine

Flute


Carpe Diem #1168 flute


we are all beings intricately connected
breathing the same air

~~~


lonesome sound
of the wind playing the reeds
a loon chimes in

Carpe Diem First Winter Retreat 2016 the kick off - find the silence

garden shadows
creep across my heart
I long for spring


~~~


gnarled branches stretch
naked in evening twilight
welcoming roosting birds
