Nestled in my parlor…

I will bring the walls
that surround me…DOWN, today.

I will no longer be kept quiet…
Meek enough to drown… TODAY.
I will brin

g the walls

I will knock down the walls
that keep me out…TODAY.

I will no l

To words of doubt and naysayers… TODAY.
I will knock down the walls
that keep me out…TODAY.

  1. Good Morning…

    Thanks for visiting me…I really appreciate it.

    This past week flew by…and I’m still NOT ready for Christmas – still have to decorate the tree today!!

    I love this little nest…so sweet – and the doggies and sidewalks below, too!

    I love your blog…so pretty!

    Christmas Blessings,

  2. My sweet friend,

    This nest with the blue eggs under its protective cloche is loveliness personified. Thank you for sharing. There is nothing more beautiful than the blue of a blue egg! My favorite eggs at Easter have always been the turquoise ones!

    Happy Blue Monday, Muse! I’m so happy you’re doing this with us!

  3. Your blue eggs in the nest are so beautiful. I just love things under cloches.

  4. Good Morning! I love the little nest with eggs. So pretty! Also the pictures below it with ‘City Sidewalks’ I would love to walk down that street and window shop!

  5. Beautiful image. Powerful words… they could be mine.

  6. Out of the incubator and leaping into the world … look out!

    perfect image

  7. I have my tools. Need help knocking down some walls? πŸ™‚

  8. Like the eggs in nest. Like the poem. I’ve had a few walls of my own that I’ve torn down. Exhilarating….Fun….Liberating.

  9. I think we all have those walls that we would love to knock down. The blue eggs need to hatch and fly away from these walls. Wonderful vision of thought as always!

  10. Loved your blog, it’s really beautiful. As I was looking at it I thought “this person should be in design” – then saw that you are!

  11. Hello friend! I love that cloche with the bird nest & eggs! I am so thankful God has knocked down my walls this week! lol Just came by to wish you & yours a Merry Christmas & a Happy new year!

  12. You amaze me each and every time. The beauty within that picture and your words truly makes my heart smile.

  13. The photo of the robin’s eggs under glass really speaks to me today…hmmm…I feel prose coming on.
    Yes, let’s both break down walls today!

  14. With the holiday coming I have the feeling of “family nesting” to welcome our family. Most of us prepare for months before the holiday just like a bird building her nest to welcome her family.
    Thanks for stopping by, and the hole
    in back of the Santa is for a tea-
    lite candle…. the rest of the
    Santa is the “chimney”. πŸ™‚

  15. This is your work? Impressive.

  16. For the past few months we have both been knocking down walls. I think we are making great strides..pretty soon we are going to be sharing a room where there are no more walls! I look forward to that day, my sis!! xoxo
    This is my heart’s song..I sing it with you!

  17. Oh..BTW..forgot to say how pretty the eggs are under the protective cloche!
    And …I’m loving that table, which I’m sure you lovingly painted! AWESOME!!

  36. I like your phrase “I will knock down the walls that keep me out … TODAY”. Knocking down the walls makes me feel and enjoy the lovely world, your lovely poems and many more good things. In reality, I need to keep this as a reminder and do this everyday until it becomes my habit so that I become more seneitive and treasure all the good things around me. Thanks a lot for the poem!!

  37. Very nice poem…it kinda makes my suessish one seem a bit silly lol. Oh well..from now on I’ll leave the poetry to the experts like you! Have a great week!

  38. I do hope the walls come down then, and then all there will be left is love and acceptance. Nice poem and intentions.

  39. I really enjoyed the message of your inspiring prose today.
    The little bird nest with the blue eggs are beautiful displayed.
    You truly have a special way delivering a powerful message with each of us…
