serenity in action

16 11 2010

Serenity usually brings to mind something
still and quiet:
the silvery surface of unrippled water,
the misty silhouette
of an oak tree
in a grassy field,
a cup of tea.
we find there is also serenity
in action,
as if peace could bloom
in the burning heart
of a candle flame:

running along wet sidewalks in between morning rains

a run between rains

galloping and turning somersaults along gymnastic mats

precariously rushing a child-sized shopping cart down grocery aisles

and then the still, quiet time for naps and more rain, watching Keats & Fanny fall in love (Bright Star), and sewing up some Christmas treats.

wonderland tea tags

Wishing you serenity in your day, whether burning or still.

oh, Bright Star is such a beautiful movie! and so cozy, with rain outside.
