#BeWoW on Earth Day


It just does not get any better than this! Be wonderful on Wednesday, and Earth Day all at one time! I love it!

Ron and I spent our Earth Day morning mowing the lawn. It was one of those rare 80 degree F. days in Florida with relatively low humidity. After the lawn work was done, I transplanted some plants, and had a good old-fashioned chat with my neighbor next door, Su. We both love gardening and cooking, so we had lots to talk about and share.

I cannot think of a better way to celebrate Earth Day than communing with nature. Stop by the official website to see what it’s all about at Earth Day.org. You can read
here
how the first Earth Day actually came about.

Not to be outdone, the swamp fairies celebrate Earth Day also, with a bit of prose and a tour of Fairy Swamp. Leave it to the fairies to spread some magic in the world today.

The Song of the Swamp Fairies

Darkness descends dragging a veil of foggy gloom,

Fairy Swamp comes alive with a chorus of frogs and insects

singing the stories of the day.

Lightening flickers in shadowy clouds flitting across the inky black sky.

Tiny glowing translucent wings rise above the slough,

as heartbeats sync and beat as one –

The Swamp Fairies

glitter in the remnants

of the setting

sun.

  Enjoy your day and spread a little of your own magic everywhere you go.

Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Earth Day!

  1. Happy earth day. Try step the ground with bear feet. It could feel more natural. 😉

  2. Your video and its sounds could be put in a loop in one of those white noise machines that help one fall asleep. Oceanside, Rain Forest, now….Fairy Swamp. ☺

  3. Great post! I kind of forgot it was Earth Day! A nearby university held their annual Earth Day celebration over the weekend. Love the fairy song! 🙂

  4. I love your poem. Your celebrations of Earth Day kept to its spirit. 🙂

    • Thank you Viva. There is so much more to Earth Day. I recycle, I compost, I try to watch my carbon footprint. All part of being a good steward of our land. I am glad you enjoyed that bit of fairy fun. I am writing my book and I tend to live in that world off and on, so I can write it. LOL! I hope nobody gets tired of it. It is the magical forces you know. 🙂 <3

  5. Lovely poem for the Earth Fairies. So glad I opened my reader tonight. I’ve been living green for several years, and I’m making my own market bags now. The canvas bags I’ve used for so long are worn out and so thin they can’t be patched any more. Recycling the pieces that are usable and crocheting new parts is fun for me and works for them, so whatever works, right?

  6. Happy Earth Day again, Colleen, at your house, too. 😉 <3

  7. Reblogged this on Covey View and commented:
