Mist hovers in the hollows,
Rain-sated green
Dancing in shimmering pools,
Hungrily greeting day,

Robins sing,
Ruffled and puffed,
Waking morning
With a hearty, Cheerio!

Mercy’s rain soaks deep
Nurturing earth in love,
A moment’s grace
Amid the din of life,

Time and space
To seek the extraordinary,
Beauty often overlooked,
Faith’s tender blossom

Unfurling one tiny petal at a time,
Joy streaming in at edge of day
Drenching my soul in

    WOW! You are really getting good at this poem-writing-stuff. This last one was one of your best. I wanted to keep reading but ran out of words. Great job!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  3. I always love the things that stream in at the edges. That was the image that stayed with me here 🙂


  4. Cindee,

    Thank you for stopping by and for your thoughtful comment.
    It’s terribly hard contemplating missing my sister the rest of my life… be it a day or 60 more years.
    You know the missing journey much more than I do…
    Thank you for telling me about your brother, it was comforting.

    Gratefully, Emily Murphy
