the river flows to the ocean waters
cresting waves resound
quiet waters enfold
so be these tides of time
shores blessed in libation
and I bathed in the baptism of JOY.

  1. "bathed in the baptism of JOY." Yes! Perfect words for the Georgia O'Keeffe

  2. Theanne, I am ever inspired by Georgia O'Keefe. When I am told that particular works of mine are very likened to her style, I receive such a comment as a welcomed compliment. Thank You ... XOXO
