A Muse to be Treasured

her jeans are soiled with the garden,

well worn leather gloves protrude from the back pocket

and a flowery cap, slightly tilted, shades her remarkable face from the sun

                                    it is never too late to discover your muse

Muse:

a woman, or a force personified as a woman,

who is the source of inspiration for a creative artist.

Take a Moment

On my way home from visiting a cemetery,

I chose to take the longer way, rather than the highway,

driving down a country road and stopping by a trail

and take a moment to wander through the woodlands.

Had I not stopped at this moment on this particular day,

I would have missed out on seeing ferns four feet tall,

an old stone wall to lead the way, and a delicate Star Flower.
