With gratitude…




With Gratitude


The sky

with wisps ethereal

or towering



ever changing


The trees twinkling with leaves

textured with bark



and beautiful–

see what can be?

The grass is never greener

than in our summers

The water


do you



to be as wonderful and

as full of wonder as


can be?


When your child

was born

as close to heaven

his face

when he loves

your lips

when kissed

the drawing

is for you

when you dance

you laugh

your eyes your being

you feel


and given


of humanity

and one


in the dark you know

all you need

is there

you know.

You know.



May you be filled with Wonder for the beauty and bounty of this earth, and with Love for those who mean the world to you.

Happy Thanksgiving!

~ Lily

    As my little one turns into a teenager people ask me where did the years go. But i know exactly where they went. Because I was there. And that’s the thing I’ve got to be thankful for for than any other. Thank you for your beautiful, gossamer words Lily. As always. x
