UPDATE & A NEW POEM


Life has been so very busy and I've had no time to visit my blogger friends.
So sorry!
I do hope to be back to posting new poems around the end of Sept.

I've been preoccupied with our dog Jake as we almost lost him 3 weeks ago to a condition called bloat....luckily I got him to our vet before his stomach had twisted.
The "little rascal" will be with us for a long life....God willing!

Next Thursday, I'll be heading up to Nova Scotia for a 2 week visit to see my wonderful family members that live there.
I'm so thrilled to be going, just a little worried about leaving Jake after this terrible incindent with the bloat, but I'm leaving him in good hands with my hubby.
He'll be at doggie daycare when my hubby is at work.
I know Jake will be ok!
We love the little guy (well, not so little now....he's almost 65 lbs.) SOOOOOOOOO MUCH!

I'm going to try and visit a few blogger friends before I leave on my trip.
Won't be able to visit everyone though....as I have soooo much to do before I leave.
Take care and I wish everyone beautiful days full of joy, love and peace!

(The picture of Jake and me was taken in Feb. when we all went cross-country skiing....it was a wonderful weekened, and just look at all that snow!)

HUGS!

Margie:)

THOUGHTS OF YOU

They come to me with evening, calm and still
and bring me peace
these thoughts of you.

Slowly in the quietness of dusk
they fill me with
tranquility.

They make my eyes aware of loveliness
of intricate shadings
purple and grey.

They bring to me the far-off faint perfume
of all unseen
and beautiful flowers.

They tune my ears to drowsy humming sounds
of winds and waves
and distant bird calls.

  1. Look at the beautiful cheery words gracing blogland again - welcome back dear Margie!

    What a beautiful poem for us to feast upon - if that's what's keeping you busy it's no wonder you might be reluctant to come back :)

    Have a lovely trip to Nova Scotia my friend.

  36. Hi ,

    I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be very good.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘WHEN THE HEART SPEAKS!’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

    BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

    This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

    You can also win an exciting t-shirt by winning the contest which is going on in rambhai.com…. hurry up the contest is from 10 – 24 august…

  58. Hi everyone!
    Thank you for all your nice visits and comments.
    It's been such a long time since I have been at my blog or visited any of you.
    I'm still alive, though.....just thought I should let you know....ha ha!

    I've been very busy and had a few setbacks in life but am doing better now.
    Jake is sitting right beside me as I write this....he's such a wonderful part of my life and adds so much joy to my days!

    Wishing everyone a most wonderful New Year, full of love, joy and peace.....

    I'll try my very best to visit you all soon and maybe even post a poem.....maybe!
