Something Mystical Sleeps

With deep gratitude to fellow hubber SueSwan, who informs us that April is Poetry Month, I am sharing this greeting card which I recently created. This photograph of the Black-billed Magpie was taken at Christ in the Desert Monastery in Abiquiu, New Mexico. After looking at the photo, these words just came:

Something mystical sleeps

In the stillness

between wing beats


In the silence

between heartbeats

Waiting to be awakened by you...

It is my heartfelt hope you enjoy the image and the text; and that you continue to discover and delight in many of the joys and wonders of our beautiful world.

Thank you, Sir William. Always appreciate your visits and feedback. I feel you are awake, in touch and quite in tune...
