Sepia for Saturday

in PowerHouseCreativeslast year (edited)


Oh, the loveliness, a burst of beauty, covered amidst the color of love

Say you’ll be mine
Say you’ll be mine
When the sun shines, one of the times

You can see, I’ll never be free
Until that time
Until that time
Say you’ll be mine

Happiness divided by two is multiplied

Love comes in too many flavors to count, don’t you think? I love my family, ever so completely; I love my children, fully, unconditionally - and way too much to comprehend… I love life, its ups, downs, and way turned around… Warm chocolate pudding, with whipped cream on top. I love a run or workout that reaches that sweet spot. You know what I mean. Splashing through puddles on a rainy summer day. I love parents who live their life out in front of their children, leading by example. The image of a baby lightly sleeping. Along those same lines, I love the smell of a baby. Oh, yes, I do. I love the warmth of a fire on a cold night. A good glass of wine. So many ways there are - and not enough time in a day to count...

What is it that you love?


Oh, the allure of all things lovely

“She cast her fragrance and her radiance over me. I ought never to have run away from her... I ought to have guessed all the affection that lay behind her poor little stratagems. Flowers are so inconsistent! But I was too young to know how to love her...”

― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

As always, there must be a flower to color my world. I dedicate this to #alwaysaflower by yours truly.


Thank you for visiting my post 💖 Because of you, I come back to post, again and again. Keep it classy, people. Kindness counts. Wherever you go, whatever you do. As always, keep on singing that song!! And just like that, this post is done. Thank you for stopping by and saying hello, leaving your words behind... and just so you know, although much sun and shine were used up today, I can guarantee that there is still a little left in my heart. Have a most fabulous day ahead!




they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,


warsan shire

Sweet words! When you were naming all the things you love, it instantly brought to mind this classic tune from the great songwriter Tom T Hall...

 last year 

That is such a cool song... you know. For a country song. :) And yes, it does remind me of it.

Thanks and have a great Sunday!

oh poetry, I love reading it. I always think of it as the sensation of my life. Although some words were not understandable to me. Maybe because it's not my native language, english. Even so I love reading new words and makes me think of finding the meaning in dictionary. lol

Anyway that last flower was so pretty..

Such gorgeous flowers, and I love the style of that old bridge :)

Have a super Sunday

I have never really thought of love in relation to flavors, but you are so right! It absolutely does come in so many!

For me too, I love the smell pleasures... the fine details and the little moments which collectively add so much magic to our lives.

Beautiful post love and amazing photography as always.

Hope you are having a splendid weekend.

Many facets of love. It is soooo true. There are just so much to love. And I agree to everything that you love--family, children, even the scent of babies. Hahaha! 😍😁

And I love Bible reading, too. It's like a date with our heavenly Father. As I see the divine pattern of love in His Word, I am falling in love with Jehovah God everyday. ❤

Hope all is well with you, Denise, as you catch things up from your vacation.

Oh, wow! What beautiful words, very emotional when you list everything you love, really a beautiful publication the photograph of those beautiful flowers are the cherry of the cake.
Greetings dear😊❤

All of these beautiful colors makes me want Spring, right now. :)

Thanks for those delightful flowers and poetry. Music to my eyes and ears. I am looking forward to see some flowers appearing in here too, as we are already in March and I am tired of having so much snow.
