...a grace... a delight... In Quietude

gentle be the warmth of the sun
deep be the breath of resolve
a quietude, a pause, a knowing devine
take I to palette with brush and paint
the firmament lambent with love and light
in quietude, a grace, blessings of delight.

Dearest Friends, Thank You for visiting. This has been a WINTER to its name here in New York. Today, with yet mounds of snow from the last snowstorm, hints of the SPRING to come are joyfully present. Melting snow, peeking green of the daffodils, brilliant clear sky, the touch of the warming sun, all within the embrace of quietude and this season's cycle of change... so BE the Glory of Creation.... much love on to you... Rose Marie Raccioppi
