rust- confidant of time
cuts through life’s landscape
twisting rules that ought not be
broken- challenging us to love this
moment even more while we are here

linking to my friends @:


  1. A truer statement was never spoken. I agree whole-heartedly! :)

  2. love the words, awesome picture!!

  4. Beautiful, contemplative image and verse!

  5. beautifully said and illustrated! xoxo

  6. feeling the love radiate through everything today! Blessings to you and Happy Thanksgiving.

  7. such a captivating creation you offer to us today Laura
    the words that rise up from you in response to an image is a lesson for all of us in mindful contemplation

  8. nice..i am rather fond of rust in color and texture that it creates, also thought i will change the metal once more before you see it again so enjoy this time the next will look all the different...i like this..

  9. Beautiful, Laura. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  10. I liked this very much. Rust is my confidant too, so this is good advice.

  11. All things rust, and fade with time...but if we didn't have that limitation, would not all the beauty be meaningless? Love is forged in the fires of times march...

    I think you captured a truth of life quite well in this.

  12. Its the essence of life... living in 'NOW'I liked it so much.. thanks for sharing...

  13. Dear Laura, what a beautiful poem about time, with all its fleeting beauty and purpose. That image fits the poem so well.
    Thank you so much for your recent visit and kind words.
    Have a lovely Thanksgiving,

  14. Simple and profound, and an excellent reminder to all!

  15. You have taken corrosion and turned it to a thing of beauty. Wonderful lesson.

  16. Anytime I read something about loving...or being in..the moment it opens my heart a little more...and reminds me to breathe!
    Thanks for sharing your beautiful poem. :) (and for following me...I'm following you back)

  17. ah so true...and just the perfect words to go with the image..the twisting...the corrosion...and our life..very nice..

  18. i love this phrase:

    "rust the confidant of time"

    and i hope your thanksgiving celebration is blessed. i'm thankful for your friendship and the gift of your empathetic spirit.

  19. Nice Laura. What a wise poem. Life's landscape is so diverse, and often it is rusty.

    Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving day.

  20. blessings this Thanksgiving season ...
