“Those things that nature denied to human sight, she revealed to the eyes of the soul.”  Ovid

 

So Simple

So simple really, that
in the delicate unfolding
of an innocent bud,
all is revealed,
all is satisfied,
all can be known,
if your gaze is kind.

  2. Paul, this is beautiful and so touching. What you wrote about kindness is great, and that quote on nature and revealing to Soul is truth.

    I’d like to share this for #forgivingfridays if that’s ok? You can include a link to my most recent post of you want to, and if not that’s completely fine.

    Let me know! Blessings to you, Paul. Debbie
