In valleys that seem so dark; by grace of God there lives hope. Sometimes in dreams, but more often in little things…like butterflies, and fast moving mountain streams.

Gardens Of The Soul


Cross meadows on mountains high.

Come whisperings of songs to my mind.

Through forest and field; on journeys blessed.

Soft wings of grace give unto the soul its rest.


Though darkness assails the sun still doth shine.

Hope flies on effervescent wings to grace this my time.

Hand over heel past dim valleys this soul shall crawl.

Memories forever cling like a fogs morning call.


Yet smiles arise with the rising of another sun.

Distant, but ever near; giving joy whereas others shun.

Ever so softly she lights on the garden of my soul.

And if but not for a moment life once again feels whole.

Beautiful thinking writing and sharing. Butterflies are my things too and I can always relate to such writes. I am glad when I see them and hope to go to the Butterfly Garden across the way from my Apartment house. It is in honor of those with cancer who died and it must be amazingly filled with butterflys in the Spring, Summer and Fall. They have butterfly bushes and all to attract them.
