  • A Precious Soul

    A Precious Soul

    Calmly pouring a dab of sugar-water into her hand, I watched as she positioned it under a ray of morning sunlight.

    It glistened as I listened to the sound of a faint fluttering, slowly growing stronger.

    Soon, a hummingbird appeared, pausing briefly to glance my way before proceeding to drink from her palm, thirsty and trusting.

    From a precious soul, precious love emanated from her eyes in sharing and caring for this small, delicate creature.

    I’d never seen a bird smile before that day, and I’ll always treasure the beauty in her eyes – a joy in my heart.

  • Hiking Quote

    Keep close to Nature’s heart…and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.

    And into the forest I go, to lose myself and find my soul.

    Poem of Love

    I was inspired to pen this poem after reading a writing by a friend

    In My Heart

    Her eyes drew me in to a soul I found pure
    Very precious and rare, of that I am sure

    Not cut as a cookie
    Her beauty unique
    Both inner an outward
    Distinctive and chic

    A place in my heart very special to me
    This spirit-warming love which will always be
