An Irish Blessing (from this Swede)

May the trek through life

be good to you.

May you treat each other kindly...

and the critters, too.

When the obstacle is looming,

may you fight despair

with resourcefulness

and courage

and a "can-do" air.

May you find yourself on top

instead of up a tree.

And may you always travel

in good company.

They were taken near my home at a place called Indian Rock.

It's across from Castle Rock.

(Both places rock.)

Love the poem and the photos, Sue! You should have a line of greeting cards. You could print them at home and sell them on etsy. Your verses are perfect for it!

Happy New Year!!

I want to go there! Those photos make me long for the spring when everything is turning a gorgeous color of green. What a beautiful blessing!

What a lovely journey of pictures and words you just took me on! Enchanting!

Darlene said...

Loved your Irish blessing. I also loved all the green. What a neat place to have taken pictures. Heather really does find great backgrounds. They all looked so cute. It made me homesick to see them. Guess when things simmer down, we will have to take a trip to Temecula.
