Beauty: Quote by Luci Shaw

“Each of us is called to cultivate beauty, knowing that as artists, and as those with whom we share our creative gifts, we become more whole and healed in that sharing of beauty.”

Luci Shaw

Snowdrops – Ellen Grace Olinger

the years
that were so hard
and yet
they gave me
my stories

There have been new sorrows since last Easter, with passings of older family members and friends.  The perennials return in spring, and also picture Easter for me.  Some of you saw my new photo of snowdrops yesterday, on my primary blog, Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin.  They are telling me stories.  One year, they were covered with snow after they bloomed.  The snow melted, and they were still blooming.
