Spirit Wings

Easter. First comes Good Friday, a day of darkness and pain.
Then comes Easter: the time of new life, daffodils, baby chicks, rabbits,
when the sun is brighter, the grass greener. We rejoice
in all things new, the promise of change, transformation ..

SPIRIT WINGS                                           ?????????

those who feel
the song
of the mountains

touch the growth
of arbutus

those who walk
ocean-side
under sunrise                                                            IMG_6450 12.4.25.daffodils

hear the psalm
of the earth

and are lifted
on wings of light

    I enjoyed your tribute to the psalm of the earth – long may its power keep us lifted on wings of light. Your work is deceptively easy to the casual glance but I know it takes work to achieve such ease. Thanks, Joanna.

  2. Many thanks indeed, Jill.
