The Gardens - In the Beginning

Evanescence

















             You are like a pale purple flower
             in the blue spring dusk

             You are like a yellow star
             budding and blowing
             in an apricot sky

             You are like the beauty
             of a voice
             remembered after death

             You are like thin, white petals
             falling
                     and
                         floating
                                  down
             upon the white stilled hushing
                       of my soul.

                 Angelina Weld Grimke, 1905

  5. Yvonne, so good to see you again, and your flowers and your cats.
    My 3 especially Jenny has been a big comfort to me since I don't have my Angie girl anymore. Very, very difficult, but Jenny stays with me at night. She's lovable and bumps my head with her forehead. ! big hugs, BJ
