The Mothers Rains

She sprinkles magic upon the earth…

As the rain caresses the life upon her…

Seeming to be brought to life…

A brightening glow of renewal is present…

A mirror to reflect gratitude toward her…

Nourished by the mothers rains once again…

In the moments after the rain I went out to connect with the earth, not having a special camera I seized the moment with my phone! Taking photos is a passion that goes in hand with writing ❤

Much Love and Blessings ❤

Tonya Marie,

Spring Begins

Spring begins…

with the rolling tide..

waves crashing upon the shore..

the winds from the east..

blow through the trees..

making way for the new…

the birds, they sing..

for the suns warmth…

the lengthy days..

colorful palettes with aromas sweet..

take a deep breath for all to keep..

for this is the season, we all seek…


Love, Tonya Marie


The Frozen Shoreline

A short visit to the beach says a lot!

The ice is just starting to touch the shoreline, here I stand upon it.
My Husband holding this poor Merganser that got caught up in the frozen waves with a hurt wing. We found him stuck in the sand and ice. May his wings be free of pain as he flies across the Rainbow Bridge.
A frozen space between sand and ice.
Frozen layers of sand lifting off of the ground with the ice flow.
A wider look a the circles of ice forming along the shoreline.
As far as our eyes can see.. Circles of ice multiply.. Like a magnificent array of frozen portals.. Dancing with the flow .. The waves in the under tow.. Whisper the sounds of swirling ice..

The ever changing shoreline blesses us with  the beauty of it’s changes! We never know what to expect when we go visit there which make the surprises extra special! I try to never go without my camera because one of my favorite parts of visiting the beach is taking photos!

I hope you enjoy the view as much as I do, with gratitude I love to share it with you ❤

Love, Tonya Marie

For those in Need

My husband,  Matt supports me in all of my endeavors big or small win or loose, he is there for me 100%!! Though I am always dabbling in something he is there to say go for it. I always tell him that my dreams aren’t as big as his and that mine are a bunch of little ones. I always start small and take baby steps. It isn’t often that I jump to high but him on the other hand has Big dreams! his ideas are like sky scrapers!

In return for all of the support that he gives me… well… we give each other! Equally so he his is my partner and I support his dreams and endeavors. So here I go!! Sharing this dream of his everywhere that I can. I am going to ask my virtual friends to share and maybe even donate where you can. I hope that you can support him not because he is your partner but because you believe in his dream and want to share it with others to help make it happen!

Namaste and thank you ❤
