I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world, to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

like whispered prayers

  1. You added a touch of hope. Thank you.

  2. As yes!!! we are indeed temples, nice responses Rosemary

    much love...

  3. This has such a lush of hush.

  4. Gorgeous. I especially like "warm like prayers answered".

  5. Like the first one better as spiritual insistence is provoked. But both are great, Rosemary!


  6. Both continuations are awesome, both very spiritual, but I think the first completes the Tan Renga in a great way full of spirituality.
