Heart Cloud

Wednesday was an amazing day for clouds.
My dear sister Beth came over for a while,
We went to Gleaners, then went for a walk.

On our way back to the house, we found this amazing heart in the sky directly above our heads. The sun shone so brightly, I was afraid I wouldn't get the shot.

But I did!!!

Guest Heart Thursday #3

Love lives in ones heart
in the form of wings
made of light
take flight

This beautiful heart was found by the wonderful and talented Tammie Lee at Spirithelpers.

My friend, you always give wings to my day,
Light to my world.

Then there is my dear friend and sister Beth's Elk Dung Heart she found during a challenge a we gave each other last year. Isn't this one of the most unique hearts ever?

Beth is an amazing artist, and if you aren't familiar with her work, you are missing out!

Abe Lincoln is a wonderful man, married to the equally wonderful Patty.
Abe takes the most amazing pictures of birds for his Birds Blog, and right away I noticed the Starling he posted had the most amazing little hearts all over it's back.

Thank you Tammie Lee, Beth and Abe, for being part of Guest Heart Thursday.
It really is MY HONOR.

A True "False" Heart

This false morel mushroom seems to turn itself inside out -
In the process, it becomes a heart!

Black Tape Heart

This arrangement of items breaks my heart.
I found it this way - a black tape heart and meth-cooking foil.

Worshiping the Hot Wing Heart

Dad loves hot wings, but he couldn't eat them all, and left the package on the counter ...
Right away I saw the heart!

What I didn't see right away was the chicken wing monk,
Up there in the corner,
Hands clasped in prayer.

Worshiping the Hot Wing Heart!!!

A Reflecting Glob of Heart - Weekend Reflections

The roof leaks at the abandoned church. There was an inch of water on the floor in one of the massive rooms ... and a heart. If you look closely, you can see a footprint below the heart.

To see beautiful reflections from around the world, please visit here!

Guest Heart Thursday #2

My wonderful friend Lois at Tallahassee Daily Photo found this Spanish moss heart a while back. In fact, this is how I found her blog! Thank you Cheryl for the introduction!

Lois' son got married last month, and during rehearsals for the grand event, she found this beautiful stone heart. Isn't it perfect?

And look what my friend Sunny over at Barnyards and Barnacles found - ON VALENTINES DAY! A perfect potato chip heart!

Thank you Lois and Sunny for sharing these awesomely beautiful hearts!!!

The Heart of Fanno Creek Nature Park

I leave the house early on Thursdays, when it's time to go to Tigard to pick up mom at the Senior Center. That way I get to take a walk around the nearby Fanno Creek Nature Park.

That's where I found this tree -
It's scarred trunk showing the
True Heart of Fanno Creek.

Dirt Heart

Drying winds have been blowing
Sucking the winter's rains from the earth.

Leaving behind little patches of arid ground ...
And this heart.

Bleeding Hearts

I suppose you can guess that these are some of my favorite flowers ...
I wonder why ...

Tiny Lichen Heart

Sissie and I took a walk a couple of weeks ago. I was entranced by this tiny delicate lichen heart I found on a branch. I looked over and there was sissie - taking a picture of ANOTHER tiny lichen heart - on a different branch!

Guest Heart Thursday

My friend Pamela at Dum Spiro Spero sent me this picture of a piece of bread she got with her meal ... shaped like a heart!

My friend Jeannette at mysteries found a heart too - in a piece of wood!

It seems hearts keep popping up all over! Believe me when I say I am awed and humbled when someone says 'I saw a random heart today and thought of you".

So ... have you seen a heart lately? If so, post it on your blog. Then leave me a comment letting me know it's there, with your permission to copy and post on Random Hearts.

For my wonderful friends who have posted their hearts in the past, please leave a comment with a link to that page. I tend to be more forgetful since I had my stroke, and I want to find
YOUR wayward hearts!

Drying Spring Heart

This time of year typically brings rain.
And sun.
And rain.

This heart appeared after a brief shower,
Right after the sun came out.

Before it rained again.

Rusty Heart

I wonder how long this piece of metal had to sit here ...
Exposed to wind and rain ...
And snow ...

How long ...
Before this heart appeared ...
Slowly ...
One drop at a time ...
Oxidizing steel into rust ...

How long before ...
It changes again ...
Another shape emerging ...
To be Wondered at ...

Glass "S" Heart

Someone over at the abandoned church left this heart.
They must have worked for a long time,
Finding all of these glass shards.

They started to put someone's initials - but stopped after the letter "S".
I wonder if they got spooked.
Or just distracted ...

I wonder, though, who left their heart -
To be stepped on,
Kicked apart.

Broken Concrete Heart

The depression is somewhat oval ...

It's the wind-blown debris ...
That found it's way into that empty spot ...
That became the heart of the broken concrete.

Sissie's Hearts!

I got to visit Sissie last week -
And look what I found!
A heart!
In her hubby's bass guitar!
She was suitably impressed.

But the best heart by far -
Was worn by sissie herself!!!

Spring Bracken Heart

The bracken ferns are starting to unfurl,
Soon they will be huge.

This one caught my eye ...
You can see why!

In another week, this heart will be gone -
Part of an even bigger Spring miracle.

I like it both ways.

Scream Heart Reflection - Weekend Reflections

If you enlarge this, you will see what caught my eye -

The reflection in the broken plexiglass ... a graffiti heart
on the wall behind me.
