Soulful




fallen leaf 
whispers to the wind: 
i am free

~0~0~0  

white lilies
blooming by gravestone,
scent of you

~0~0~0

guitar strings softly  
 echo her soulful verses,     
 bluer than the sky

  2. Free is so beautiful, Grace. I think leaves are such a fine example of this kind of freedom.

  3. Very nice as always at your sea. But the poor leave isn't long to be free, it will soon be on the ground, raked up or gone on by a hound haha

  16. I am sure I left a comment before, but it is not here and I will try to repeat it because I am so moved by this writing.

    the whisper, the scent, the echo
    Blue tune, but free . . . I feel like I have been here after a soul myself.
    I found that the grave was empty, but the surroundings and my heart were full.
