Sunshine Ray In Sweet Contemplation.


Each Pasture Of Her Life.

Musings and moments

flowing gently as Sunshine Ray

sat in sweet contemplation.

Her days now so happy

her view free and bright.

Her life story throughout

the countryside

so treasured

so dear.

Let us walk by her side

through each pasture of her life.


Wastelands in the distance

now barren and bare

represent her early years

once so full of pain

so full of sadness;

an echo so hollow

discarded into

the realms of yesteryear;

each feeling

fading ;

each sharp edge blunt ;

a lesson learnt

a journey travelled

a story shared !!


In another pasture

newly planted





and so so


eternally full of a

promising strength


every young heart


a swell

so proud

so resilient

so precious.

A scene ,

a promise ,

so radiant

so obvious

so true

to share with each child

each beautiful young heart!!!


In the next pasture she sees


heathers and blossoms

paving each path with

their beauty

filling her heart

filling her being

with a joy so true.

Each soft blossom

echoes the love

in her heart,

her pride,

her spirit.

The beauty in her soul


bright and

oh so eager

to new heights;

through to each dark corner

which were

until that moment




foreboding !!!

Her journey

lined with



and a deep faith.

Each colour of

faith and hope

seeping to fill each niche.


Finally she sees a pasture

of fresh green grass;

flowing beautifully

into her tomorrows.

This pasture laid out

as a plain green canvas

for her to paint.

With her heart she will conjure

the colours of her days yet to come;

with her soul

she will paint

from deep within.

A true picture

for her


her grandchildren

and all

to learn

to follow

to absorb

to contemplate.

Her legacy

she will

leave behind ;

a legacy

tinged with sadness;

but painted

with colours so warm and so strong !!!

A legacy

of strength

of beauty

of humour

and finally a legacy of truth

of honesty

of compassion

and created

from every

deep crevice

of her

heart and soul.


Thank you Mother Nature

for the love you have shared

the beauty you've created

and eternally cared...................................

Thank you for your teaching

for that road to follow

for sharing the light

not in darkness did I wallow....................

Thank you for your hand

obstacles so testing;

some days so bleak

but a spirit so winning...............................

Thank you for your guidance

I am always in your debt

how my spirit rejoices

the best to come yet.......................

Thank you for your faith

filling my being with love

my heart sings out loud

to the heavens above..................................

Eddy - This particularly stirred my pride of my Native American heritage. Although it is a beautiful and unique symbolic narrative of Mother Nature, it also reminds me of what some of my loved ones are experiencing in Heaven.

Thank you. XO

Eddy, here is a touch of the truth for you. I start each morning the same way, in a hectic state trying to do so much, and I find myself getting frazzled and impatient....and then I read your latest poem and serenity arrives. That, my friend, is a beautiful gift that you give each of us.

Thank you for my serenity this morning.

So beautiful Eddy. I think the Native American Indian has such a reverence for Mother Nature and I love how you worked that respect into this piece.
