I offer this Sunday afternoon to each of you .....

White of the sun and the most infant
of the greenest of leaves
All of the signs of another beginning
yes,.... the waiting heart believes

Even the coldest of souls... mine included
see the grace in time awaited
The spirits are kind to us still
no matter how unappreciated

So I have sat reading ....snoozing ...and
basking in the screen room shade
For this very moment when I can say
thank you to the beauty of friends I've made

So here is a note to my friends that
I have gained since I began writing
May this spring bring you the best of everything
love... laughter all forever enlightning

Ed, every now and again I read a piece that just seems to bring a sense of overall good feelings. This is one of those pieces. Thank you for sharing, and I would like to say it is a pleasure to call you, "friend"

What a lovely scene you've painted and dedicating it to your friends gives it (and me) a big boost! Thank you, dear Ed!

Voted up and beautiful. Very nice, warm and sunny spring Sundays to you too Ed. We are having some really warm days now unfortunately on this side of the world we can still get cold weather. All the blossoms haven't burst forth yet because of the snow in April. Hugs and passing this on.

This is so very sweet. The sentiment comes through beautifully. Such a warm piece to be the first thing I read with my morning coffee.
