My solitude now finds a friend, And after each hard day, I in my mountain garden walk, To rest, or sing, or pray. All down the rocky slope is spread Thy veil of rosy snow, And in the valley by the brook, Thy deeper blossoms grow. Each year I wait thy coming, dear, Each year I love thee more, For life grows hard, and much I need Thy honey for my store. Like Like.

Like Liked by 1 person. Those are gorgeous! Our Texas mountain laurel is so different — it has long sprays of purple sweetpea-looking blossoms.
These white blossoms and buds might show up in one of my quilts some day. Would love to see these in a quilt! Such a beautiful poem from one of my absolute favorite authors!! Plus… your photos are beautiful! You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account.

Some contained things further away in other places, other dreams, other journeys. But when I took them all and held them page by page, it was more than the binding, just as the stone that forms my mountains reflect the beaches they glimmer from. I held them sacred as if holy psalms of life, things that were given to me along the way a million times clearer than a photograph or picture. I found the divine in them. To me a book should be exactly this, small and meaningful letting the poems speak for themselves.
The kind of book you can fit in your pocket and take with you, not bound in gold to be set on a bookshelf, but in sand and moss and the divine simplicity of life. This particular volume I have written after my father died of pancreatic cancer and I spent the time trying to make sense of life among other things.
So it is to him I have dedicated this book, and I would remember my other fallen heroes as well.

I would note my mother and brother and sister for being with me along the way on many of these trails and journeys and misadventures.
