For peace

winter's eve --  
i light a small candle 
to hymn of children's choir

~0~0~

scent of roses
on beaded prayers --
a silent moment


Grace @ Everyday Amazing

~0~0~

a snowflake falls --
the morning blooms 
like white poinsettias

    1. Hi Grace--I made the mistake of reading your offering first which I rarely do. But feel that I pulled too much from your for mine--so am pulling mine--peace
