I will be

29 Dec

As writers, we are naturally fascinated by the world around us and this very short but heartfelt piece is not only touching but the comment before it has me intrigued. I know better, though, than to pry.

Jane Dougherty Writes

This morning I wrote a letter I will not send. Nor will I post it here. My cares are my own and need worry no one else. I will post a short poem from the heart instead.

I will be the hare on the mountain,

the dove in the tree,

and I will share my days with you.

I will have around me quiet and peace,

embroidered with birdsong

and the nights spangled

with all the stars of the firmament.

    I really liked this and her resolve not to burden others with her problems. Wish I could do that.:) But I am always here for others to unburden on me and am happy to help when I can.
