They know the secret of this summer sweet swoon, […]

Poetry Sunday-Be Like A Seed

    Be Like A Seed     See not the hopeless, helpless time. Go instead underground And be like a seed.     Seek instead the nourishment within your own soul. Bringing refreshment and urging you to grow. Letting go of your outer shell.     Draw your courage from deep inside, It is there […]
