Saturday, April 30, 2011 known ... in Tappan, New York...

the glory of a Spring moment
the bloom of a flower new
petal wings of grace
beholden to the light
bowing to the sun.

  1. My garden is so blessed by the beauty of the daffodil. Its bell like center does indeed ring out the call of angels on wing...

  2. So beautiful Rose Marie, thank you darling. Beautiful words and I love the daffodil. It is like a little bell, for ringing music for the hearts open to hear the music.

  3. Dearest Serena, And so that 'little bell' does call. As I posted, I was thinking of all the splendor you share, the beauty of your paintings, the love that defines your very BEING. The "ringing music" is heard and our hearts rejoice.
