In the Grandeur ~ Genesis

Travails dispelled in this deep breath of early Fall
The oak tree of many seasons holds the morning light
Reaching bough and branch create shadows
A dancing grandeur cast upon the yet green grass
So gentle is the sway of the evergreens
I too, move to the touch
The crisp morning air upon my face
The mirth of bubbling water
Circles, ripples, reflecting light and shadow
I too, of many seasons
In the grandeur of the morning light.

  1. Dearest Rose Marie,

    Thank you for blessing me by sharing the creative gifts our Father has placed in you. These poems help me to slow down, truly reflect, as I suggest in this week's Monday Morning Scripture. We are step for step, His children, within the grasp of His loving arms. I know we will celebrate together in Heaven when it is His will for us to depart. Life is such a blessing. It is to be lived, enjoyed, savored, even the trials, as what would bliss be if we had nothing to compare it to?

    Love and hugs,


  2. Hi Rosemarie - beautiful hues and swirls shadowed delicately and securely too. Your words inspire and give way to Fall's design - every season a new adventure of beauty and surrender.
    Loving you in Fall

  3. Dear Gail, I know the significance of Fall in your life, and bring to you a heartfelt embrace of loving friendship.

  4. ...and too, ...the shadows... if not for the light the shadows be they known not... and so ALL is LIGHT in GLORY... the ever present GENESIS... this I proclaim with palette and brush...
