“embraced, enriched, alive”

 

The anonymous poet of the park has inspired us once again capturing so perfectly the magic and beauty of this special place, the Pacific Spirit Park here in Vancouver. Hopefully my photos from yesterday do justice to his/her beautiful words. Thank you to whomever you are and keep inspiring us with your poetry.

 

   

 

   

 

Pacific Spirit Park.

We enter into
A pact
As we leave cars
And concrete behind.
Walk or run or bike
Into a spirit world.
Of water abundant
At this time of year.
Light diminished,
Or the bending rays of
Occasional winter sun.

I see you.
I know you’re here.
I move and listen,
Take such joy
In watching our dog
Run free.
Nodding or briefly chatting
To others,
Clad in rain gear,
Mud splattered shoes.

We join with the forest’s
spirit.
The constancy of movement.
Of air and trees,
Light and water.
Shape shifting through days,
Seasons.
Being one with
All that is here.
A companion guides us.
Embraced, enriched,
Alive.

the fourth season


 
Having shared with you the glories of Spring, Summer and Fall in the Pacific Spirit Park over the past year, today it is Winter’s turn. What a special place it has been for us, raising our spirits every day as it did once again on this cold frosty day today. How lucky we feel, and we never take it for granted.
 

on reflection


 
On this rainy Monday morning looking back to the week behind us from our walks in the Pacific Spirit Park and reflecting on the week ahead for our troubled world.

Thank you to whoever posted this beautiful poem in the Pacific Spirit Park today.
 
  
 

“the bending rays of occasional winter sun”

a weekend to remember


 
So much to be grateful for as we spent this wonderful weekend with our daughter and granddaughter on Vancouver Island where we visited the East Sooke Regional Park, and Witty’s Lagoon Regional Park in Metchosin. It was love, love, love for every glorious precious moment ❤️
 

 

 

 

 

after the rain


 
With the need to escape the news for a while today what better place for reflection than the Pacific Spirit Park after the rain.
