showers on and off.
Birds are returning
Garden and woods look stripped and at Peace
small touches of holiday colors
even in the pantry
and a small rug in front of the sink
Just enough for one matriarch
Neighbor delivered handmade
herbal soap she makes. It smells wonderful.
This is something I wanted to do years ago.
Her visit brought back such past memories.
They surfaced all through the night
and made me smile....
Of my chickens and fresh eggs.
Orchard that provided jams and jellies.
Collection of geese, ducks, peacocks and
an incubator that I hovered over like a mother
to see eggs hatch.
Baby calves that were bottle fed.
My youngest barefoot and wearing a sun bonnet
It was a time of healing 30 years ago.
I truly thought I could not make it
A time that was the end of much I had known
and now I received the blessing of a new beginning.
Ever thankful that
To this world I came
from a totally different world.
Enya's "And Winter Came"
most of the day
All is well........
