It feels like coming home when ever i log on.
Thank you all for letting me be part of it.

A Poet once this sentence penned
“A man is rich who has a friend”
I read it and thought, “How true”,
He must have had a friend like you.(unkown)


Dove.

All my grief, sadness and pain.
Go away
when I walk through a pouring rain.

My eyes light up,
my soul feels free,
with every falling droplet of water,
… I will be,
… I will be.

Water falling with power from above,
I imagine the freedom symbol.
A white dove.
Escaping the down pours grasp,
Moving its wings as if it would ever lasts.

The white feathers shine as one,
against a sinking sun.

Peace and calmness grasping at my heart,
watching the dove’s serene art.

A rainbow, soft as a shadow first rises above,
Virgin coulors entangled in elegance, complimenting the dove.

To be within this picture of calm surrender,
to see all of God’s creative splendor.

It is over flowing my soul with gratefulness
For I know, that you are blessed.

Helmut

Thank you for your words. It sure makes life worth while.

The Dove you showed suits the piece
How can I add such Dove, would you tell me please
I have the file, but I did not know
how to insert this flying show
Thanks also to you for your words of encouragment.

Helmut, I did not see you slip in the door. Of course I was down for awhile too, but I must say I like this piece very much and I wanted to say welcome to Passions even though I may be a few days tardy. Hope you will forgive me. Nice imagery in your poem and hope to see much more.

Thx you for your comments. Nice

Slipping under doors I do
I would never do this to you  
Hope your feeling better today
to be down adds too much dismay
Thx for your kind words
