Then... and NOW...

You Sing Your Song

Not pained by days past
Not burdened with lessons of history
No fear to soar the sky
No doubt in moment present
Little bird, little bird
You sing your song
And ALL is known.

The artistry and music of SPRING ... gifts of eternal beauty known...


  1. It is a glorious new Spring awakening all around...the smell of fresh air is total joy this day. Songbirds and blooming delicate white crocuses at my door! ENJOY!! this my mantra...

  2. Hi RoseMarie-

    As I move about my yard, close tothe woods edge and witness the flow of the brook ever changing I am serene - and sotoo I am entertained as if Iwere at a concert of angels as the birds give sound of elegance and intent - and the sky is a new blue - as if the color never existed before today - perhaps it didn't.

    Love to you in Spring time and in all time.....

  3. Dearest Gail, "...and the sky is a new blue - as if the color never existed before today - perhaps it didn't." So much the feeling this day shared... NEW, never this moment before, never this exact sky, never this exact warmth upon my brow as I gather the many broken branches, this breath NOW and yet Eternal be the Spring!

    Much love to you and yours,

    Rose Marie

  4. I wish, if I too could do it! Ah!!

  5. Tamarind, and so we search to find what is already present.
