Revisiting a Poem ~~~ Windows View

Windows View

What is the view from your window?
Is it the sea or the bare rolling hills?
Or is it the new office buildings
Seen from your own windowsills

Maybe your window faces a playground
Where families all day come and go
Or you might see mountains in the distance surround
White capped, when covered in snow

The view from an apartments high tower
Might be the best view you get
Whatever the view through the daytime hour
Most breathtaking when viewed at sunrise or sunset.

A view of a beautiful garden, of roses and green grassy tones
Think of your view ever changing, as another season dawns anew
Group plantings of perennials and annuals, neatly bordered with stones
Bringing to the view from your window, shades of different colour and hue

Or your view might be a small terrace, light and as neat as a pin
There might be a sundeck full of flowerpots, table, umbrella and all
And hanging from poles is a hammock, to sit or lounge about in
Concrete jungle, your view might even be, a brick wall or a tree strong and tall

Remember to take in the special view from your comfy window seat
On a cold and wet wintry day sit there and read your favourite book
In the early freshness stand by the sunny window, as morning you greet
Watching all of the movements outside, while breakfast starts to cook

Today as I clean my window and reflect on the views I have seen
I think of many windows, small, long, narrow, large and wide
Thinking of old ornate windows, church windows and all of the memories, in between
So now I invite you to look out of your window, to a unique view that awaits you outside.

Orange _ What a Great Colour!

Hi to Everyone who is still reading the Blogger Blogs!

I must admit to being very slack for quite sometime with my Blogger Blogging. However sometimes a thought comes to mind that I feel might be worth sharing with others.

The Colour Orange

What an exciting time of year it is now here in Australia.
The Spring Equinox-Vernal Equinox will be upon us on the 23rd of September 2014.
Everything is starting to come alive again after the cold and dreary Winter.

One colour that stands out right now in the garden is the colour Orange.
The beautiful little orange Poppies standing tall in the garden and the big bright flowers of the Pigface make quite a statement when they appear next to the purple Wallflowers or the Blue Hyacinths.
The Blue Iris are flowering as are the red Sparaxis amongst other gorgeous spring delights. Spring is most certainly here and this apricot coloured rose below is a favourite of mine.

Now not to forget another flowering orange beauty The Bird of Paradise plant. I have a small one but my neighbour has an enormous clump of these regal looking orange flowering plants in her front lawn and it is a magnificent specimen to admire.

Please let me digress from the garden for a moment as I play it forward to what is to come. I can not wait for the extraordinary delight of a brilliant warm Spring evening relaxing at the beach whilst a sunset of pure golden rays casts the brilliance of an orange glow all around. Ahhhh!!!!What could be better?

Of Course there is much more that can be said for this extraordinary vibrant colour. I have mentioned it in the garden and on natures palette as a beautiful sunset but....
Did you know that there is much more to be praised about the Colour Orange?

For example...
  • Social, Gregarious
  • Jovial, Exuberant
  • Youthful, Cheerful
  • Adventurous, Daring
  • Energetic without Aggression
  • Creative, Constructive
  • Good Health
  • Exciting, Warm

The color orange relates to social communication, stimulating two way conversations. A warm and inviting color, it is both physically and mentally stimulating, so it gets people thinking and talking!

How Good is that.

In the fabric of our lives the colour Orange has a very important place, extol in it's virtues and embrace it's vibrance daily.
I am enthused to share with you all

The Colour Orange!
