Carpe Diem #861 Sacred Stones (Ovoo)

three times around
the ovoo blesses my journey –
cry of an eagle

balancing stones
like reaching for the sky
balance of nature

birds on top of the stones
nature at its best

Carpe Diem #854 happiness

timeless beauty –
the glint of polished pebbles
in the crystal brook

© Chèvrefeuille

happiness shared
as we walk through the steppes
and the Altai Mountains
unconditional love
as we walk our path together

© Chèvrefeuille

on the wings of birds
the faint reflection of the sunset –
the sound of the wind

shadows on the wall
one single candle shines its light
towards the world

after the rainstorm
I sit down on the porch
smelling the fresh air

(c) Chèvrefeuille


Lady Lee, that’s me
bounces and could do cartwheel
happy to be free

from the Philippines
mum to HRH the son
Him Indoors my love

sun, sea and sand
more fun in the Philippines
with my family

love is happiness
you and me against the world
always, forever

a nice cup of tea
ringing my Mom and my son
a long, Sunday bath

ice-cream in the park
cycling in the beer garden
swimming in the sea

Singin’ in the Rain – Daily Prompt

Safe inside, toasty warm, while water pitter-patters on the roof… describe your perfect, rainy afternoon.


playing in the rain
always a welcome picture
such uplifting feel
recollections of childhood
more fun in the Philippines


singin’ in the rain
in the middle of my book
cosy with blanket
warm cocoa, thick woolly socks
nice to be inside than out

Lucky Charm – Mondays Finish the Story

Finish the story begins with: “She lived a life that some would describe as being on edge.”

She’s always loved swimming – in swimming pools, rivers, lakes or seas. She’s been down in every imaginable piece of diving gear known to man as well as a wide array of underwater submersibles and crafts. In one of these diving trips, she found a couple of old nickels and kept them as souvenirs. She put a hole in the coins and wore them as her necklace. With them around her neck, she did other extreme sports – skateboarding, mountain rock climbing, jet skiing and bungee jumping. Like the bulls in her coins, she’s always charging full on.

Having said that, she needed money to pay for all these extreme hobbies. She had some jewellery given to her by her mother and she went to the antique shop to have them valued. She got some money for them, then the man saw her necklace. He said that old coins would have fetched a considerable amount, but because she put a hole in them, now they don’t have any value.
