once again

We dabbled in this before –

leaving touches of color.

Some black and blue, but mostly,

with enough markings to know it was worth the

time with a delicate canvas

like ours.


Years turned over

lives on opposite ends.

I longed to grab the brush again –

to add a few new strokes,




Vibrance and spirit.

We hold our own wooden sticks –

some days in both hand.

Brave, strong women.

Greens and growth have

planted peonies

beneath the bruises.

Giving them long stems,

transforming tenderness to

Beautiful embellishments.   


Our five little lives,

weave their own tapestries.

Before our passionate eyes,



I’m thankful for my dear friend this day, and every day. Through her, I am learning that there are times when a relationship is worth working for, and that you can learn so much about yourself in the process.

Proverbs 27:17
