"My Secret Ponds"


I have a secret pond.
Would you like to come visit with me?
There are so many wonders and mysterys in the pond!
Surrounded by the tall grasses and red clover blossoms, the pond lies quietly.

The sun shines down through the tall trees, and paints reflections in the pond .
The reflections dance on the water!
Sometimes I close my eyes and I listen to the stillness of my secret pond.
I can feel the touch of the breeze as it tickles my whiskers.
The breeze is music in my heart, and makes my heart sing.
Yes , this is my secret pond.

There is magic in the pond!
Frogs splash !
Frogs leap onto lily pads and sing croaking songs.

Birdies tweets are like symphonys ---from high in the tallest trees...
Baby birds are swinging on branches and learning to fly!

Salamanders swim and play hide and seek with each other.
The mommy and daddy salamander teach their babies to swim.
Can you see the salamanders swim ?

Tad poles swim in the ponds too.
Now the baby tad poles are growing legs.
Soon the tad poles will be leaping frogs.
Do you see the tad poles?


When I go to my secret pond.. I watch the ferns stretch.
I see them unfold their tiny hands.
They unfold their hands
like the many mysterys, that unfold at the secret pond.

The ferns are waking up, from their long sleep of winter.
They are reaching for the sky.
The ferns are welcoming spring!
The ferns love the secret ponds...
There are so many wonders to display!
There is magic at my secret ponds.,,,,,,
Baby birds are learning to fly and bumble bees are gathering pollen.
And, I am chasing butterflys and shadows!
But, sometimes I just sit and listen.
I listen to the quiet at my secret pond.
I listen for new wonders to unfold.
Nitey nite
love

You know, our CarrieAnne has a secret place that she likes to swim, but I have a feeling that it is not the magical, and beautiful circle of life that yours is...

What a wonderful secret place - it looks magical, and what poetry to describe it, we felt like we were there (although the human said it wouldn't be quiet and magical there once we announced our arrival!) Love Dex & Lou x

Your pal, Pip

Aunt Diane is going to make it back to your house again one day & we will take a wonderful long walk so you can show me all your secret places. xoxoxo Aunt Diane
Hugs & kisses to you & moms!

Hopefully it is still a secret to pesky mosquitos. But a pond of life for all other creatures.

Hi Tweedles!
Thank you for taking us tomyour secret pond. What a beautiful place it is. I love all those tiny swimming salamanders and tadpoles. Did you know I had a groggy in my yard this weekend? He returned to the stream at the bottom of my hill. He lived for a while in my neighbors pool.

Your pond looks like a very peaceful place.

Suka said...

hey Tweedles,

That is an awesome secret pond! I closed my eyes after reading your post and I could feel myself there, beside you, listening to all the secrets your pond had to share. Such a beautiful place! The tad poles are super fun to watch, and the ferns are very magical.

Thank you for letting me "visit" your secret pond. My heart feels better already!

Have fun chasing butterflies and shadows!

Tweedles, when you are sitting quietly by your secret pond, close your eyes and listen to the beat of your heart - you will hear me telling you that I am there with you and that I always will be wherever you are and whenever you need me.

Your secret pond is beautiful and you describe it with such eloquence! You make me wish I was there in person to explore its wonders with you.

Barbara said...

Tweedles: I've been sick and also have Jeep to watch over, so I almost missed this! This is one of your best stories yet!

Keep doing it! I so love reading them!

Melvino Puggaccino said...

My Tweedles Friend, I breathed in so deeply as I read your post story about your Secret Pond... I could smell the green of the plants and feel the warmth of the summer sun, filtering through the trees. I am sitting by your side, listening with you so quietly. And now, I lean in for a touch, a snuggle, a connection with the sweetest spirit - my dear friend, Tweedles.

I love you!

That is a nice pond.

KB said...

What a magical secret pond, Tweedles. We have secret places in our forest but none have ponds. You are so very lucky to watch all the burgeoning life at your pond.

My friend just told me a story of tracking a bear in one of our May snowstorms. He swam in a secret pond, wading in on one side and wading out on the other side. Then, he went for a walk before returning to sleep next to his secret pond.

I wonder if you have any bears who swim in your secret pond?

The very best thing about your secret pond is that it is filled with so much life...just like you...xoxoxoxo

Tiffy said...

Oh what a beautiful secret pond! There's so much life in the pond from its shoreline to its bottom. So many wonderful creatures live there and if the pond wasn't there than the creatures wouldn't have a home. I know you tread lightly at the pond and whisper softly to all the creatures that live there. They tell you their secrets and you listen because you are one with them.

Hello Miss Tweedles :o)

Wow! That is magical alright! I would probably try to catch anything that moves in there ;o)
It looks so peaceful though…

Smooches,

oh my gosh Tweedles,

I can see it all in my mind even though I am not there. I can hear it in my ears even though I am so far away. I thinks it is because of the magic that I can experience what you have. Oh thank you for letting me experience the magic with you.


PS we still have something to send you but we have a problem. Our post office is in strike mode. There has been talk of this strike for a while and they are doing rotating strikes right now. We didn't want to risk having it sit in transit. Mum has been holding off on mailing things to our friends. If this strike continues we will take it across the border and mail it from there.
