She writes so vividly, you are taken where she is - a most comfortable place to be. :) Thank you, (((Pea))), for your Southern Grace and hospitality.

Her words invite you
to kick shoes off, sit a spell
on the front porch swing
you close your eyes and relax,
knowing you're finally h o m e.

Pea's southern style poetry makes one feel like they're listening to their Mama recountin' memories. Her words are as comforting as a warm quilt on a chilly morn. You capture her beautifully with this one. Very well penned; brava! She will love it (as I do). The picture is absolutely stunning!~

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twink, Karen Lynn. :D
