Trepidation wondrous

Heartfelt promise

Eternal hope.

Rivulets of love

Uniting each expectant soul

Nurturing faith.

My granddaughter Krystal and her new puppy Buddy.

Until sweet eyes close

Perfect innocence.

Tiptoes and dewdrops

O'er fields and meadows.

Source

A brand new dawn

Source

Breathe in magical air

Rejoice in new beginnings

Await each blossom

Ne'er to fade

Driven by nature's truth.

Source

Nearer to belief

Each moment of true faith

Wonders magical and clear.

Source

Your hand in mine

Eternal hope ignites

A lifetime to share

Reaching out ,living our dreams

Lots of love to you all from my little corner of Wales.

Eddy.

Beautiful words, photos, and music. "Morning Has Broken" has been a fave of mine since I was a child and would play it on the piano. I must find that sheet music! Thanks for a lovely hub and hope for the new year! Happy New Year in Wales!

Hi Eddy, Your poem left me with a lingering sense of bittersweet beauty. I can sense you and I share a joy in the musical sounds of words as well as their meaning. I also enjoy the challenge of the acrostic form.

That was beautiful Eiddwen. I wish that it was a poster which I was able to pin on my wall to see every morning when I wake up. I voted this up, shared and pinned it.

Eddy you continually outdo yourself. This one is amazing. "...Rivulets of love Uniting each expectant soul...." I think that is my absolute favorite!

Your pictures are precious and give us pause for reflection.

Voted up, awesome, beautiful, and interesting.

I think it's nothing short of a conicidence that Trailblazer is coming out the day I go on unemployment. I too am a bit lost, but one thing I'm certain of: I do not want to go back to a soulless, paper-pushing job where I count the minutes until I can go home. The one thing I'm looking forward to is LOVING Sunday nights when I can go back to passion, er, work! I want my motivation, purpose, and mojo back. Also I want to take a chance on me. See what I'm capable of!
