It just a prairie.....(a reminder to me)

We're different..

"It’s only a prairie!" they snicker, shaking their heads as they pass us by.                              

They mock us with ugly words and gestures ,.....they say we're strange.....they judge....  

We're not offended, though... We understand....we're sad.
Sad they can't “see” what we see, or "feel" what we feel. (Sad they can no longer remember the beauty....)

Perhaps, we think,that will happen to us one day...
but,quickly we perish the thought
We must always remember....

The prairie
The rich, sumptuous palette of green
shimmers brilliantly in the early morning light.
Mesmerized, we stop, we stare....
Sprinkled with colors of unparalleled splendor, 
We think these must be the brush-strokes of God...

Our eyes

Sparkle with a renewed sense of innocence

and wide-eyed wonder 
Eagerly they drink in the pristine beauty surrounding us.
With tears they express their gratitude

Our toes
wriggle in blissful anticipation
wanting to be soothed by the cool dewy blades of grass
we take off our shoes
we indulge them
with a dance they express their gratitude

With arms
intertwined and fingers clasped
We quietly stroll,two hearts beating as one 
absorbed in the majesty, the serenity of the moment
Our Spirits soaring toward the heavens 
With an embrace they express our gratitude

Our moment
Like a fragrant breeze, it lightly caresses our cheeks
but we know it's something more. but what? We wonder 
The presence of an angel?... The presence of God?
We do not know
We only know it's real
A Glimpse
A prairie
A feeling  
A journey of two souls 
Connected for eternity
In that moment
We truly understand
God is everywhere
With love we express our gratitude.


  1. Yes, God is everywhere and has created such beauty for each of us to enjoy. Unfortunately, so often we pass by without noticing. Thanks for the reminder to look at the little blessings in our lives.

  2. This is beautiful. Taking time to notice is so important.

  3. "Why! who makes much of a miracle?
    As to me, I know of nothing else but miracles,
    Whether I walk the streets of Manhattan,
    Or dart my sight over the roofs of houses toward the sky,
    Or wade with naked feet along the beach, just in the edge of the water,
    Or stand under trees in the woods..."

    See? Walt Whitman agrees with you and I do too. God is all around us. His miracles and blessings surround us every waking second. Beautiful reminder, Dar.

  4. I grew up in Saskatchewan, in the flat prairies. Our province was mocked, no mountains, few hills. But there is beauty in the prairies.
    Thank you for the image of my home.
