      1. Oh this is lovely, cara:) I’d not heard of this plant before. That is what I love about CP and you and Jen and so many other followers….learning so much about nature in the process of creating poetry.

        ghosts beaming
        nature’s perfect
        harmony

        yucca moths mate
        wind sighs with delight

      2. morning dawns
        new life blooms in the desert
        first cicada calls

        watching a sleepy lizard
        all is as it was before

        Happy New Year cara … as we continue on our learning voyage! Big hugs XXX

      3. I am a bit anxious as I really do not want to celebrate it or see anyone…maybe I ll go to a restaurant for a nice brunch and see how it feels to be among people today.

      4. If you don’t wish to celebrate it … it’s better you don’t force it. Every morning is a new day … there will be other celebrations n’est pas?

      5. That would be fun … I’m going to friends (and sleeping over) and they went to Austria to buy fireworks … so I’m thinking it will be fun .. I love fireworks. And I’ll have lots of photos to take too!

    whispers invite all man-kind
    to ponder impermanence
    through the shafts of time

    lives slip through history’s mesh
    wind blown silence © Georgia

    hissing to be mindful
    oversights of the past

    sudden breeze hints
    messages of total bliss
    budding white flora

    Joshua Tree waves with joy
    Mother Nature’s splendour © Tournesol

    shimmering heat
    the ghosts of that other age

    walk the earth
    the secrets hidden within
    hearts of the budding flowers © Georgia

    not a trace
    spirits return in wait
    winds of the night

    embrace this New Year’s day
    as nature runs its course © Tournesol

    in the early hours
    the clock and calendar turn
    a new year is born

    bright hopes and thoughts
    exchanged with Auld Lang Syne © Georgia
