Wrought With Grace


Wrought with grace, an urn
could hold both leaves and ashes
till the sun blinks out.

  1. I love it 🙂 Breathe 🙂

  2. Hi!
    Very pretty shot! Have a great day!

    Food for Thought

  3. Great shot-great quote!

  4. This is so beautiful. While Buddy was running the race on Saturday, his 39 year old niece was just across the street from our motel in ICU…she thought she had the flu and it was a massive blood clot in her lung. They lost her for 2 hours, so the found Indian doctors saved her life. She was coherent yesterday which to me was amazing. She will be in ICU for at least 2 more days… she came so close to being right there in your beautiful urn this weekend. Your poetry touches y soul every week. Yours and Mickie’s have to be my favorites. You have that magical mystical talent for word and imagery. I look at you as such a special friend. You always brighten my day. Just keep pushing me to get back to my writing. When I read things I wrote years ago I am totally amazed, but for some reason I am afraid to try now. Keep nagging me, gal. I really need to do it. I don;t know if I told you, but I destroyed probably 1o years of journals when I was going through a rough time in my life. Oh, how I wish I had them back. I think I have the writing all on some funky old square thingies, and if that is the case I may well be able to put them together again. I am just afraid to try for fear of what I will learn about myself. Thanks for all of your encouragement. You can never know how I appreciate it. Your pal, genie
